HOW TO GET TO KOH LIPE
It hardly needs mentioning that Koh Lipe is an island, but it is worth noting that it is not served by an airport and that it is not possible to get there by car, bus or train. The only available options are by ferry or speed boat from either Langkawi or Pak Bara or neighboring islands along the coast. Keep in mind also that the number of ferry crossings fluctuate depending on the season and that Koh Lipe can only be accessed all year round from Pak Bara.
