Hello, I hope somebody can give me some good advice on this:
we are flying from Copenhagen, Dk to Krabi which takes us around 12h. We wondered if it is possible (without totally trashing ourselves) to just head right to Koh Lipe with a private airconditioned taxi. I checked google maps and the route should be around 3h from krabi to pakbara- and then another 2h on the ferry--> that this sounds realistic to you? We are traveling with our 10 month old son, but hes been very easy with travels in the past and sleeps a lot in his carseat... What do you think? Yes or No? Thank you in advance!!!
I am planning to visit Koh Lipe either in Jan 2015 or Nov 2014. Is there much difference between this two month? (Activities, hotel rate, number of tourist)
I am planning for short vacation, please recommend how many days the minimum (3 or 4 days)?
Any nice and clean hotel can recommend? (Middle range)
Hi is there still construction next to green view
We are thinking of coming to Koh Lipe in June/July in order to plan for a wedding in late 2014/early 2015. Would this be worthwhile given that many of places shut down in the low season (therefore we wouldn't be able to check them out or speak to people)?
am looking for a lovely relaxing holiday destination with myself and 18 yo daughter.
we want to chill, be comfortable, eat well and laze about
heading there early feb and lots of things are booked up.
looking at a couple of places one lipe beach resort on sunrise and smugglers on sunset. at 18 yo, daughter prefers not to share bed with Mum :(
i read lipe beach has best beach area - but to find two beds, we need a family bungalow and it is expensive
any suggestions? best beach sunset or sunrise?
Hi Team mates,
Good day to you.
My friends & I ( 3 pax) planned for Ko Lipe on 15.12.2013.
We booked a resort for 3 nights.
We got our GPS for Thailand maps & we are thinking whether to drive from KL - Bukit Kayu Hitam enter Hat Yai & drive straight to Pak Barra pier or we just take bus / minivan from Bukit Kayu Hitam.
The objective we driving in is we can spend few days at Hat Yai by ourself & not rely on tuk tuk / taxi , bargaining the price. :)
Anyone drove to Pak Barra pier from Hat Yai before?
Can share your experience here with me as this is our very first time driving to Thai.
Thank you. :D
I heard from there news there is a huge flood happened in Satun province (where I plan to depart from Pak Barra).
1. Could someone advise me how's the flood condition doing over there?
2. Any chance for the Boat transportation from Pak Barra pier to Koh Lipe be cancel or available?
3. Hows the weather doing there in Koh Lipe? Still raining lately and anticipate to rain in next few days?
How's the weather doing there?
I'm not sure if it's still raining..
Forecast states that it will be rainy this week specifically on 7-10th Dec.
will it be too dangerous to travel to koh lipe on these dates as certain news states that its a bad monsoon season right now.
We might pay Ko Lipe a visit October 25-31 but are a bit wary of the rain. Which weather report is the most reliable in your experience and if it is raining in October, does it rain all day are does it mostly consist of passing showers?
Can you use other hotel pools?
Hi. I am considering to travel to koh lipe either 22-25th sept or 29sept-2oct 2013. Which of the week would you think less rain and storm? Or will it be lightly raining most of the time? And will it be hassle and fully booked for hotels? Planning to book hotel when reach. Needed advise thanks
I'm planning to visit Ko Lipe from 27SEP to 29SEP.
I know at that time,rainy season and many rains.
I wonder,rains all day or short time within a day..

Thanks in advance

Hi, me and another 2 girl friends are planning to go To Koh Lipe maybe around 22-26 August 2013. We were made to understand that at that time, weather wont be so promising. Do you think it would be best for us to go then or wait for some other time. We are there to celebrate my birthday so hope the trip will be a good one. we plan to travel from Kuala Lumpur to Hatyai then Lipe. Plus suggestion for the activities once we get there (if we r still going then)
Hi, I am planning to have a vacation in Koh Lipe on 27th October and would like to know if there is any diving centres available from that day onwards as there will be few days left before the peak season.
I am wondering how can I get form Phuket to Koh lipe on October 15th? does anyone know if there are any boats going to Koh lipe?
Hello, I am planning on going to Koh lipe in October. Is the walking street closed? how about the hotels? is it still good to go in the month of OCTOBER?
If I'm will travel in high season, which one is better to depart to Koh Lipe, by Tammalang Port or by Pak Barra Pier? Which port will offer at better price and frequent daily transfer to Koh Lipe?
If I'm will travel in low season, which pier will offer the transfer to Koh Lipe? I was heard, Tammalang Port will just operate for high season only? is't true?
How many types of water transport to get to Koh Lipe others than speed boat, either by Tammalang Port or Pak Barra Pier?? How about it price rate.
Can anyone suggest me any hotel with the rate below 700B/room/night in Koh Lipe in low season??
Hi, I plan to visit Lipe island next week ,wonder how is the weather condition there? Anyone been to Lipe lately ? Please advise ,Thank you !
Hi I am travelling from Alor Setar to Koh Lipe this end of May. Will it be better to go to Pak Bara via Hat Yai by taxi or to drive to Pak Bara through Wang Kelian ? Thank you.
Hi, i'm Planning to go Koh Lipe this end of May. I wonder is there any Taxi/mini van to Pak Bara from Bukit Kayu Hitam/Sadao Border? As i will drive myself to Bukit Kayu Hitam from Penang and park my car at the duty free shop. Appreciate anyone can advise me. Many thanks ^^
I am hoping to travel to Ko Lipe in early June but have read mixed things about the weather. Firstly I was wondering how difficult it wil be to get there - I know there is only 1 boat a day in the green season. Secondly, what will the weather actually be like? I'm prepared for it to rain but don't want to bother travelling all the way there if it is just going to be cloudy, rainy, and windy! Lastly, if we did go I would love to do some boat trips etc. but I have heard the sea can be very rough, would it be too bad to do trips around the national park at that time?
Any advice would be much appreciated! Thanks
I was thinking about taking a small trip to Ko Lipe, Thailand during my stay in Langkawi. However, I am a bit confused on how to get there. I understand there is ferries between the islands, but that they only operate from October to April? I will stay on Langkawi from April 29 - May 8. Is it impossible to get to Ko Lipe and back? I did find a site who allowed me to book tickets, but on www.kohlipethailand.com it says that there is no direct ferry from Langkawi to Koh Lipe in May.
Thanks in advance
looking at ko lipe early dec... please recommend hotels in the50 range, close to beach... is this resonable? Thanks, DC
I bought an air ticket to Langkawi in early of October.
Unfortunately, I notice the ferry to Koh Lipe only operate from the end of October onwards.
So I think my alternative way to Koh Lipe is to take the ferry from Langkawi to Satun (the name is Tammalang pier?)
Then from Satun pier travel to Pak Bara to catch the ferry to Koh Lipe.
(Seem like a long journey).
Is there any ferry travel directly from Satun to Koh Lipe in October?
May I know how far from the Satun pier to Pak Bara?
Any public transport to go to Pak Bara from Satun pier and how much?
Hi team mates,
I will drive by myself to PakBara Pier.
May I know is there any safe car park for my car to over 1 night?
I wish to travel to Ko Lipe by passing through Khao Yai and Tarutao island to see the beauty of Andaman Sea. After that drop by Koh Khai to see the natural Stone Arch, then only to Koh Lipe. If the price quoted based on requirement above is 1200baht/person and including return ticket. Do you think the price is fair enough?
Please advice. Thanks!
