Koh Lipe (Maldives Of Thailand) in Satun Province: Koh Khai and Koh Tarutao


The word "lipe" literally means paper in the local Chao Ley (Sea Gypsies) language. An island by the name of Lipe makes "Koh Lipe" — the Paper Island. *clap clap* Sound knowledgeable, don't I? Nah, praise Google and Wikipeda for sharing almost everything that we need on the internet nowadays 😄

Lipe Island was BEAUTIFUL and that I truly acknowledge it as "Maldives of Thailand".

I was blessed with the opportunity to visit there last February, during the Valentine's weekend and was assuredly lucky as well to be able to witness the most happening and heart-warming side of the island.

Koh Khai (Egg Island)
Landed my feet on the bright sandy beach of Koh Khai (Egg Island) which named after its eggshell colored sand. The long, steamy and hot boat ride to Lipe was indeed devastating.

Koh Khai (Egg Island)
Backdropped with the natural stone arch of Koh Khai and turquoise seawater.

See what I mean by eggshell colored sand?

Koh Lipe: Mountain Resort
Now, jump!!! #MyTrademarkJumpShot

Pak Nam
Before I go any further, let's backtrack the kilometres we drove from Penang to Pak Nam.
Much shorter distance than to Koh Ngai / Koh Hai.

Pak Nam Pier
Standing, waiting... Where is our boat ride?

Koh Tarutao
Tarutao National Marine Park in the bargain.

Koh Tarutao
Tourists are required to pay a one-time national park entrance fee. 200 THB for us foreigners.

Koh Lipe
Hello, Lipe Island! We are finally here!!!

Koh Lipe: Mountain Resort

Hands up if you wanna go for sunbathing =p

Koh Lipe: Market Street
Lipe Walking Street is just walking distance away. We came after settling down in our accommodation.

Koh Lipe:  Nee Papaya Restaurant
Our tour guide brought us here for dinner at the Nee Papaya Restaurant for the first night.
That's him hand-picking the seafood himself. Khob khun kha =)

Koh Lipe:  Nee Papaya Restaurant
Thai Styled BBQ seafood. Slurrpppp, those prawns were huge!!!

Pattaya Beach, Koh Lipe
After dinner, we took a stroll along Pattaya Beach with the sweet companion of these little candles in sand made heart.

Koh Lipe: Foot Massage
Foot massage. 300 THB for an hour seems like a standard price already.

I slept throughout the massage, so comfy.
Happy Good Friday and have a wonderful Easter weekend y'all!

  1. Ko Lipe is the best ferry destination in Thailand, Ko Lipe has three main beaches: Sunset Beach, Sunrise Beach, and Pattaya Beach. The sea gypsy and make your day with your day with mouth-watering seafood is just amazing. Last year I visited Koh Lanta with my family through the well know ferry shuttle provider “Andaman Ferry Service”. Their services are just fantastic.
