Tips / Info : 
  • Not only human travel to Lipe. There are so many dogs in lipe too. 
  • Lipe has 3 beaches. Pattaya, Sunrise and Sunset. Boat drop-off at Pattaya. If you stay at sunrise / sunset beach area, you need to walk accross the Walking Street to your hotel. 
  • Lipe has clear water beach. Go swim / snorkeling and enjoy the sunset in the evening. Beware of Sea urchins
  • Halal Restaurant available in Walking Street area. (Try Roti Mina restaurant)
  • Seaside hotel is recommended for budget traveller. Near to walking street and boat drop-off point.
  • On island tour, if you feel curious about how they process the chicken, take the 'Nasi goreng seafood' for lunch . - It was so delicious. (mungkin sebab lapar gila..heh~)
  • Pay National Park fee on barge upon arrival. And bring the receipt when you go to island tour. They will check the receipt later.
  • If you transfer to Pakbara pier by speedboat, make sure you just wear your sandals and easy dry clothes. I advice you to wrap your bag with rain cover (for backpackers)
  • You can go to Koh Lipe from Langkawi, Malaysia too.

    1. Pengalaman i pakai GoPro Hero4 Silver dan Hero5 Black, so far i suka juga dgn GoPro. Kalau underwater pun video cantik. Lagi 1 kelebihan GoPro ni ada wide view. Kalau hero5 ada Wide, Superwide, Liner, Medium view. So rasa lagi puas hati. I tak de experience dengan Olympus melainkan dulu try kakak punya DSLR. Memang mengecewakan kualiti dia. Tak tau lah kalau depa buat action camera ni ok pulak.

      But kalau rasa Gopro mahal sangat, boleh guna SJCAM. Abg i pakai SJCAM, kualiti not bad. Jangan lupa cari yg ada Wifi. So senang nak connect dengan device lain nanti. =)

      Kalau beli barang yg biasa org lain beli, kalau ada problem senang. Boleh research pengalaman org lain. Kalau beli brg rare ni, risau ada masalah hadap sorang2 .. heheh..

      Pendapat saja. Ikut u juga nak macam mana.. =)

      Good day!
