Hi, understand that it is monsoon season now. Need your advice whether it is risky/dangerous to take boat from Pak Bara to Koh Lipe during mid Jul2015.
During July, what is the schedule of boats to & from Pak Bara-Koh Lipe?
Thank you in advance.
Hello everyone, I am travelling to Koh Lipe in July 2015 for about 5 nights. I need some suggestions.
- I know its going to be wet during that time of the year, but is it worth going to Koh Lipe in july ? Also, do you think we can do snorkiling or diving there, during july?
- even though its low season, will there be some tourist in july? I am affraid that we might be the only tourist there during that time.
- Finally, can u suggest me some good hotels to stay there?
Any other suggestion for us would be gladly welcomed.
Thank you very much in advance.

I am going to Koh Lipe this coming December for 5 days. I would like to know what are the attractions there. I am living at Bundhaya Resort. Are there any activities other than snorkeling and diving, like banana boat or parasailing? Thank you.
Hi, I would like to check if I would like to travel to Koh Lipe from Langkawi .
1. What is the earliest time of ferry, and where the jetty located?
2. Is the immigration will open during non peak season? Where to get this kind of information?
3. How long will be the boat transfer duration?
As I can't search much information online, hope you all can help.
Thank you in advanced.
I have planned a short trip to Koh Lipe next week.
We will be arriving in Krabi airport at 8 pm Friday.
After doing some research over the internet, I found
that the journey from Krabi to Pak Bara is about 4-5 hours.
I have to catch the boat from Pak Bara at 11.30am on Saturday.
I would like to know the best way to reach Pak Bara in time.
1. Is there any Minibus service available? Couldn't find their timing information anywhere.
2. If hiring a taxi is the only option, are they available 24*7. I found one website for taxi booking, but their departure time is 8am-10am. I am not sure if this will manage to reach Pak Bara before 11.30(which seems to be the only boat per day)
I would be grateful if anybody could provide suggestions in this regard.
Me and my friends are planning a trip to Koh Lipe from Langkawi by ferry, but I try to check online about the ferry schedule. I m not sure whether any ferry service on March 2015? Can anyone help?
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.

Thanks in advance
I planing drive from kayu hitam to Saturn...then feri to ko Lipe..who want follow me
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??
