"By Far the Best Single Spot Travel Guide I've Seen"

November 20, 2019

The Koh Samui Guide Review:

Since launching The Koh Samui Guide’s seventh edition, we’ve often woken up 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.

[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!).
