Thumbs up Koh Lipe

Just want to share my experience in Koh Lipe. The place is very beautiful, the beach is still clean and the water is clear. A good spot for diving and snorkelling. Fresh seafood and it is reasonably priced. It is a hidden gem and is still not very popular yet.

Travelling there:
Air Asia (Singapore to Langkawi) -> Langawi Airport -> Taxi -> Telaga Terminal (5 to 10 mins drive) -> Ferry -> Koh Lipe

I will post photos once I have reached my 100 posts. Anyone been there before?

about 45 mins and quite bumpy. If you get motion sickness easily then need to eat pills.

I was looking through the blogs of the Koh Lipe island yesterday too. Find it very beautiful. Is it safe? Will it have any kidnap case similar to the Sabah case?

I read some go via hatyai.

Some of the interesting blogs:

I am going there next month! Super excited that I can strike off one of the places on my bucket list. Accommodation is super expensive with $50+ for mix dorm, $80+ above for ensuite bathroom with no ac and no hot shower. Got to comb every OTA and those not listed on OTA ones, I managed to find a $80+ with ac and hot shower but it's not at beachfront.

Any recommended activities or places of interest to (view point ect) go? It was a super last min decision and my schdule is quite hectic now. So many thanks if you can share your experience.

Thanks, detailed article on the journey from LKG to koh Lipe. I took the slightly longer but cheaper route, Hatyai -> Koh Lipe. For those who don't want to spend too much time on the road, flying to LKG is a lot faster.
