Kindle / iPhone compatibility:
I purchased this guide primarily for the maps of each beach village. I wanted to see how closely the hotels and restaurants were located to one another and to the villages and main roads. Unfortunately on the iPhone the maps are too small read and magnifying them makes the map image highly pixelated and illegible.
Another problem is that I wasn't able to loan the Kindle book. I wanted to transfer the book to my travel partner's iPad, but the publisher (Amazon?) does not grant loaning rights.
Despite the technical issues, the content of the book is wonderful. I appreciated the sections on responsible tourism, the blunt, honest yet humorous bit about male prostitutes, and the information littered throughout the book about respecting local culture and appropriate dress. It was a great mix of tourist information and reality.
I would recommend anyone interested in this book to either purchase the physical (non-Kindle) version or use this book only for iPad.
