Soaking up the Thai sun on Koh Lipe

Soaking up the Thai
sun on Koh Lipe

Drenched with characteristics that has put Thailand on the list of most charming island destinations

WHY THIS TOUR?

Wedged between uncharted islands of the Trang and Satun coast and the Malaysian beaches of Langkawi, Koh Lipe has remained under the mass tourism radar for good reasons. Part of the Tarutao National Marine Park, idyllic may not even sketch this green dot in a sea of turquoise with beaches that top many of its bigger island brothers. Inundated with all things tropical, a superfluous amount of seclusion welcomes guests with open arms. Nicknamed “The Maldives of Thailand”, soft, sandy shores with an underwater world teeming with life are key drivers that have turned Koh Lipe into the centre of attention of the Adang Archipelago.

 With a laid-back scene, a good selection of local bars, restaurants and coffee shops, brings forward that bit more western influence when the day comes to an end. Between sunrise and sunset, the draw to snorkel, dive, or simply chill from the comfort of a resort is all that matters. All that leaves floods of romantic euphoria for all who have gotten the taste of Koh Lipe will stay a lifetime with those who have wandered, swam and explored this picturesque spot of unimaginable beauty.
