Koh Lipe Trip: Itinerary and Expenses 4


Our trip to Koh Lipe was laid out and planned long way back. Actually, it’s 2 years in the making. We had several attempts in the past to visit this beautiful island but all end up being failed. Time constraint, err budget were the major pull factor. But we knew by heart we’ll visit this paradise no matter what, and it’s just a matter of time. 

On the last week of April and beginning of May, we made that trip happened. Powdery sand, turquoise blue water, teeming marine life and a lesser crowd, were things we find Koh Lipe can offer. So many things to do, that’s why we stretch a bit our stay here instead of the usual 4D3N.

22,055 Baht – TOTAL (Quote for two persons)

 
The price and rates in Koh Lipe are bit expensive as compare to Krabi and Phuket. But of course, it’s expected since it’s an island, where commodities are transported by the sea which junks up the cost. 
Note: All the Charge/ Rates quoted in this Trip are based from the time this trip happened between 29 April – May 5 2015. So it will change without prior notice.
