To clarify beforehand: if you came here looking for the Maldives of Thailand, as some travel reports have called it, it is no longer. If you are looking for what could potentially become the next Ko Phi Phi, then this could be the place. I am writing this review from the viewpoint of someone who was expecting the Maldives of...

Nestled in the Andaman Sea among some of the more remote islands, Ko Lipe is my trusted island getaway. Amazing diving, beautiful beaches and not too crazy nightlife makes this island an oasis from tourist coated novelty like Phuket. The fresh seafood and amazing smiles from the locals will help you recover from a work week. It's remote enough to... More

Amazing Island, with breath taking views, crystal turquis water, as beautiful as Maldives or Seyschelles. Beautiful underwater with colorful fishes and corals, not only in front of the beach, but mostly in the Tarutao National Park, which you can see in snorkel trips. Also you can swim in bioluminescent plankton in snorkel trip in the evening. Amazing experience. Delicious tasty... More

One of the most beautiful places I have ever visited! The best beach is sunset beach, great for pics and relaxing. In the evening you have to enjoy Walking Street, great food and nice souvenirs.

Cool island, just busy enough to have a decent vibe but quiet enough not to feel oppressed by tourists, would recommend, I just hope no more big resorts come.

A Beautiful island in Adang archipelago. With very nice beaches .. Sunrise, Pattaya, and Sunset beach with crystal clear water. A lot of happenings in the evening in the walking street.

It's really a stunning island with lovely sea, basic but good hotels and a vast selection of restaurants. My husband said the diving was also great. My only tips are, stay away from Pattaya Beach where all the big boats come in, the immigration office is there and it's not a holiday feel to it. Stay on the top of... More

The most beautiful island we've been in Thailand. And you can go easily to any other beach as the island it's small. Don't miss the opportunity to go. It's an amazing place.

I have been to a couple of islands in Thailand and so far this is the best one I found for snorkelling. The Andaman sea is much better than the Gulf of Thailand in terms of corals and fish. This is the 4th time I head there and over the past 5 years I've seen new resorts replacing the older... More
