You could try getting one of the net......the Thai shop is baded in Singapore - they will probably deliver within a couple of days.....if they accept your address.

Have you tried phoning the guest house on Ko Tao to see if they found it? If so, it might be cheaper for you to go and fetch it yourself. If you're lucky, the GH might even be able to arrange for someone to bring it to Ko Phangan. Loads of tourists take the ferry from Ko Tao to Ko Phangan every day .... all you'd need to do is go to the pier to pick it up.

Very good advice - I have frequently found that in these sort of circumstances honesty has prevailed.

Thanks all.
Silver Sands at Koh Tao were great - they put the charger on the ferry for me.
Sarikantang at Leela on Phangan are also fantastic - the reception girl organised it all for me :o)

Cheers!!

Perfect example of how a little bit of awesome customer service turns into great free marketing!

Can you buy a macbook charger cord in Chiang Mai or Koh Samui? I am pretty sure that mine is going to die soon. Do you guys recommend buying it in Thailand or just get it at home?

Get it at home.

THere are some Mac shops here but mostly run by a company called "com seven" - if MAC were aware of how hopeless this bunch were I'm sure they would stop supplying them.

there are a few "independent" Mac dealers who are a little better but like all things in Thailand post sales service can be a nightmare - so get it at home ad at least then you will avoid any CS problems.

Posted from within Vietnam.

My power adaptor died in Krabi & the best bet in the South of Thailand was the Apple store online (delivery to my door in 48 hours). Otherwise there's Apple stores in Bangkok, Phuket & Hat Yai.

Yes you can buy an Apple MacBook Pro charger on the Koh Phangan, only the thing is that you need to verify where does it get. There are also some MacBook Pro charger shops. There are also some of the dealers which would help you with the Apple MacBook pro charger.
