One of the best islands I’ve been to in Thailand is Koh Lipeh. Koh meaning Island, so the island of Lipeh.
My friends and I had a blast. We always have smiles in our faces every time we reminisce those moments. We went there by super speedboat. It was damn scary. It felt like we were just gliding up and down the big waves. There were few times when it felt like the boat was falling especially after a big wave. I had the same feeling when I first went on a Ferris Wheel back in my primary years, which I swore never to ride again. Anyway, the ride was super fast. It could dry your mouth, and blow your saliva into the air whenever you speak. My gosh… the wind was so strong it could distort your face. LOL!
Thankfully though we got there in one piece!
As you approach the island this beauty will welcome you. This long stretch of super white, powdery sand is Pattaya Beach. It is Lipeh’s main beach. The sparkling, crystal clear water is good for snorkeling right from the beach.
There are so many cottages to choose from. There are cottages near the shore, and the expensive ones up on the hill. The locals and resort owners are welcoming, you can even bargain. The cordial owner allowed us (4 guests) to rent a cottage which is good for two. So we were able to do more activities on the island than what our budget could afford.
Night life in Koh Lipeh is as exciting as Krabi. There are many restaurants and bars to choose from. They are not very strict about the number of drinks you order. As long as you order something, they are a OK with that.
Other time-worthy activities that will give you good memories for a lifetime are snorkeling and island hopping. It’s a whole day activity where a long tail boat will take you to different islands from any point in Koh Lipeh to surrounding islands. You can snorkel at the middle of the sea, or swim once you reach the islands. Be sure to bring your underwater camera. There were many corals and fish. The water is clean and clear. It’s totally an experience of a lifetime.
Or if you don’t feel like doing these, you can just stay on the island..lay down by the beach and watch the beautiful sunset.
The best time to go there is August to April. From May to July, sea waves are gigantic.
I am so glad I was able to do this. It felt good. I feel good recalling those days. The relax and care-free feeling chillaxing in Koh Lipeh which lingers long after gets you through another semester of hard-work. I would say Koh Lipeh is one of the best places to unwind away from the hustle and bustle of city life such as that of Phuket, Bangkok, Hatyai, and Nakhorn Sri Tammarat.
Have you been to any place in Thailand? Which one did you enjoy the most?
