The Koh Samui Guide is a PDF ebook travel guide and you can download your copy immediately after purchase. In three easy steps – here's how to get your Koh Samui travel guidebook.

On a mobile or tablet you won't see a 'download' button – just the title of the book. Click that instead (once!) and you'll have your downloaded guidebook in just a moment.

If you you've clicked and think nothing is happening, just wait a moment. The Koh Samui Guide is 45mb so it can take a few minutes to fully download. Clicking 'download' repeatedly will reset your download back to the start – a vicious cycle that will get you nowhere! My best tip is to click the download button (on a desktop) or the file name (on a phone/tablet) just once. Then wait a moment. Your file will download and save to wherever you save your downloads. If it's hiding, search for 'The-Koh-Samui-Guide' to find it. Easy!

Saving to your phone

You can save The Koh Samui Guide to your phone exactly as you would any other PDF document. If this is brand new territory, these instructions (or any thirteen-year-old) might help:

Saving to ibooks (ipad)

How to save your guide to iBooks on your iPad? 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.

Through the magic of the internet – your copy of The Koh Samui Guide is totally downloaded and ready for you to enjoy. You can easily read it on your computer or iPad, or you might prefer to print it, put it on your phone, or read it aloud to your dog.

Download time

You're downloading a 45-mb PDF file. If you have decent internet, you’ll have your copy in less than a minute after your purchase. On my home broadband, it takes about a minute to download, and a little longer over 3G data.

Note for slow internet

If you're on slow internet, once you've purchased your guidebook, and clicked your download link, you might briefly see a "Fetching Files" screen – for just a second or two. On faster internet, you probably won't. (It's unlikely – I wasn't able to find internet slow enough to create a screenshot!)
