"By far the best single spot travel guide I've seen"

The Koh Samui Guide review

In just a month since launching The Koh Samui Guide’s seventh edition, we’ve woken up nearly every day to some wonderful emails from our readers. Proving that Denmark truly trades in happiness – the following note from our new best friend Claus was a total highlight.

The Koh Samui Guide review: "By far the best single spot travel guide I've seen"

[L]ove all the new pics, best section is food and what to bring (already bought the mosquito repellent) and more or less section 4 and 5. Cool with some language. The BKK-USM and what to do to make it easier is priceless.  

 In fact I can't come up with a single suggestion to enhance it. It's by far the best single spot travel guide I've seen, anywhere, and I'm 44 and been around the block (well got lost at one point)

I'd say it's essential and almost a necessity.  Thanks again, did I say I love the new pics?  

 Cheers, Claus, Denmark

(Google says that ‘tak skal du have’ means thank you in Danish – and we mean it!).

As anyone with a nanny cam will understand – you want to know what your ‘baby’ gets up to. Our baby? Since 2012, it’s been racking up some miles, quite literally zipping from Andorra to Papua New Guinea to the UAE. Out of pure fascination, we occasionally look at where The Koh Samui Guide has been downloaded. Considering we’ve never advertised and put our product on the internet “just to see” – the global interest seven editions later is astonishing.
