Footprint Thailand Handbook & Bangkok Noir

Footprint Thailand Handbook 7th Edition by Andrew Spooner
The latest and best ever edition of Footprint Thailand Handbook (7th edition) written by the talented UK journalist and SE Asia traveler Andrew Spooner features a quote from the Bangkok Noir blog on its inside title page...................

"As the sun sets, the Bangkok Night comes to life. The air cools, the traffic calms, and Bangkok's faults disappear into a glossy and seductive darkness, music drifting through nighttime breezes scented with jasmine and the smoke from ten thousand food stalls...."
Chris Coles (from the blog Bangkok Noir)

Bangkok Noir News

Ralf Tooten, the award winning photographer, and the writer, Roger Willemsen, have published a book of photographs and commentary about the Bangkok Night Scene titled BANGKOK NOIR.
