Sawadee, sawadee...ka..kap..krap!!



Sawadee karp, I'm back from Koh Lipe with blistered feet and darker skin tone due to the corals and burning sun...Gosh the CNY Spring Cleaning has dominated most of my time. Time to start my story before my memory unconsciously slips away :p

Kay, my thoughts...hmm...Koh Lipe was FANTASTIC!! Best Christmas getaway EVAH!!! I'm starting to feel a little guilty writing this blog coz unlike Taiwan, I did not plan this trip. *Guilty face* Nevertheless, I'll try my best. So stay tuned!!

Koh Lipe is a tiny winy island in the Andaman Sea located at the southwest coast of Thailand
near the Malaysian border. A very popular spot for sunbathing, snorkeling, island hoping, diving and berhoneymoon (I know kay, there is no such word). It's one of those places where you could just laze around all day, sleep in, read a novel by the sea accompanied by the sound of splashing waves, take an evening stroll along the beach. Ah....Basically just relax and unwind.

Okay...without further ado, here's a mini travelogue of our 4 days and 3 nights stay on that beautiful island.

Day 1
1) Drive from Penang to Pak Barra via Wang Kerian
2) Stop by Changlung to buy a third party Thailand Car Insurance
2) Check-in at Varin Beach Resort
3) Relax..relax

Day 2
1) Island hopping (Koh Yang, Koh Adang, Koh Hin Ngam, Jabang...funny names, hehehe)
2) Sunset beach

Day 3
1) Snorkeling at Pattaya Beach and Sunrise Beach
2) Free and easy

Day 4
1) Check-out Varin Beach Resort
2) Shopping at Hatyai

Oppsey...almost forgotten!! For those of you who are driving from Malaysia, it is advisible to buy your own comprehensive insurance to cover your car in Thailand. I'll let you know about the other procedures required along the way. So pay attention. Cheers!!
