Book Description

Jan. 25 2011 Footprint - Handbooks

Mesmerising and manic in equal measure, South India will have you enthralled from the minute you arrive. Footprint's 4th edition South India Handbook will help you discover, digest and delight in this beautiful region.

The guide opens with a colour section full of inspirational photographs and advice to help you plan your trip giving you a flavour of the best things to see and do. The guide then includes carefully selected itineraries giving you advice on how to get the best out of your stay whether you’re travelling for a week or 6 weeks. From the tropical calm of Kerala’s bucolic backwaters, to the riotous exuberance of Hindu temples this guide provides extensive, thoroughly researched information which will help you plan your trip as well as advise you on the ground. The Essentials section provides great advice on how to get there and how to get around as well as information on sleeping, eating, drinking and shopping giving you an idea of what you can expect to pay. The heart of the guide is broken in to the key regions of South India – Mumbai, Tamil Nadu, Kerala, Karnataka, Andhra Pradesh, Goa - and gives you comprehensive information on each of the regions. Each regional section has an overview map, local information on how to get around with transport and street maps where relevant, a short history of the region, thorough advice on what to see and do and a directory of key local information on banks, embassies, internet cafes, medical and even laundry services. There is a full-colour mini atlas which has maps of each region to help you get your bearings.

South India is an assault on the senses. Whether you want to explore chaotic cities, hire a houseboat and navigate your way around the beautiful backwaters, discover tombs and temples galore or simply lie back and relax on one of the many stunning beaches, immerse yourself with Footprint's fully updated 4th edition South India Handbook; with everything you need to know, including how to hunt out the silks and spices, where to find heritage homestays or mountain ghats and the low-down on the movie madness.

About the Author

South India born and raised in the vibrant suburbs of Peterborough, writer and photographer David Stott acquired his taste for India in the womb. At the age of 28 he finally discovered the variety and diversity of flavors at which butter chicken had merely hinted and since his first visit he’s become an annual visitor to India, steadily learning to tell his chole from his bhature and establishing a serious addiction to masala dosas along the way. David now splits his time between India and his adopted home in vibrant suburban Sydney, where the pace of life is such that he occasionally has to pinch himself to make sure he’s awake.

Other guidebooks by Lonely Planet and Rough Guide are very good, but I have found the Footprint guides to be the best.
