Ruben's Lipe Trip Report

Ruben's lipe report.
nick: headji
Visited february 2011.

We took the speedboat to Koh Lipe (from Ko Muk), I've heard so much nice about it so I wanted to have our last week there. As our vacation only was 17days. First sight of Lipe were amazing and truly beautiful.
We ended up staying at Lipe Beach Resort at Sunrise Beach. 3rd row bungalow at the beach for 600 baht. Not bad. We met up with my mother and little sister the last days there.
In front of our bungalow

We spent one week here. Basic bamboo huts, but very nice. The staff here was friendly too. You can rent canoe for free. If you like to play with dogs, they have many. From Pitbull to Chihuahua....

...Or you can play with this dead pufferfish we found at the sunrise beach.
"Look, he's smiling" my little sister said.

Our bungalow from behind. There is no roof over the bathroom. Tanning while showering isn't that bad

The shower.

Inside our bungalow

The bathroom. Dont be surprise if you get a cute frog visit or two in the evening...

We just relaxed for one week ...except the hike up to the 3rd viewpoint at Adang. But wow, that was worth the walk/climb!!

Our way back to bangkok went like this: Speedboat to Pakbara - minivan from Pakbara to Trang - night-train from Trang to Bangkok. The last day there we did some shopping at the MBK Center and drank some beers at Khao San Road before we took the flight home 03:30 in the morning.

I will probably make a video with pictures and stuff like i did from my last year trip and put it on
