Completing your order

The payment processor adjusts the currency from USD to GBP, AUD, EUR, CAD, INR and JPY at the time of purchase. From The Koh Samui Guide page, just click the currency menu in the top right to see your own currency.
Is my payment secure?
Ohhhh yes. As for your online security, The Koh Samui Guide's site is hosted with Shopify – they host stores for Tesla, Herschel, Google – here’s the boring tech-speak about their ‘Level 1 PCI DSS compliance’ (that means really secure).
Can I update my previous edition?
2017 purchases: If you bought The Koh Samui Guide (PDF version) in 2017 and would like the updated version, please get in touch and I'll be happy to send you the update. Email guide[at]kohsamuisunset.com from the email you used for purchase (and tell us something nice!).
Orders made in, or prior to, 2016 are ineligible for an automatic update: please purchase the current edition (it's good – you'll like it!).
How can I save my guide to my iPad (iBooks)?
Very easily! The Koh Samui Guide will work just like any other PDF file you want to save to iBooks on your iPad. However, it is a large file (about 45mb) so it might take a moment to fully open/download. If you don’t see the ‘save to iBooks’ option, give it a minute to load completely (especially on slower island internet). For step-by-step guides with screenshots:
Please note: Beyond step-by-step download instructions, we're unable to provide tech support for adding the PDF file to specific devices.
How can I print my Koh Samui Guide?
Just like any other file you'd like to print. After purchase, complete your download.
From then, it's just a normal file to print as you would with any other document. It's 242 pages, so you might want to run it on a greyscale or economy print setting to save your ink cartridges.
If it only prints 30 pages, it's probably because your printer ran out of paper. (Actual answer to an actual question).

To reiterate: The Koh Samui Guide is a strictly digital product

The Koh Samui Guide has but one earthly form: an instant PDF download that you can choose to print, and/or put on your iPad/phone/etc. It's a beauty, but it does not arrive via mailman. Will you love it just as much as a real book? I hope so – see others' reviews, or download your copy now.
