Quick trip to Koh Lipe

Moira Schneider

After a few days with our family who live in KL we left for an adventure on a little island called Koh Lipe which is one of the small islands at the bottom of Thailand. We went in two taxis’s to a small airport about half an hrs drive away -  from there we caught a plane to Sebang.  After an hrs flight, we caught another taxi but could all go together to the Ferry. We had to go through immigration before boarding the Ferry that then took an hr to get to Koh Lipe. As the ferry anchored out from the beach, we had to jump onto a little wooden water taxi that then took us to the beach stopping just short enough that it was shoes off & walking in the water to the beach. We gathered our bags up that were lined up on the beach together with what we were carrying & walked up to join the que to go through immigration ... we found Icecreams for the boys while Matt joined the que. when it was out turn we fell Into line with Matt ... 

After that done ... we caught 2 motorbike taxi’s to take us & our bags to our resort the other side of the island (the Island is very small).  We had a little wooden hut with an open wooden verandah with seats on. We were one end & the family were the other end. The little boys would come running down to us to say they were ready to go for breakkie, or swimming or at the end of the day, showered, changed & ready for an adventure of where would be going for dinner as food was an important part of the holiday !!!

Our days were constant with swimming, snorkling & a couple of days we hired kayaks. The boys loved having a go at rowing as we went to a couple of different bays where it was turns to swim, snorkeled or built sandcastles, including waking out to a little island when the tide was out & getting back before it came back in .... 

There were lots of places to eat at & the last 2 nights were the most memborable. We caught motebike taxi’s into the Main Street where there was such an array of food, seafood & all sorts of cuisines. The last night we again caught motor bike taxis whereupon it was quite a hair-raising ride. We went to a lovely restaurant almost the other end of the beach from us, but through the town & just as you got to the resort restaurant there was a huge hill to go down & you felt like you were were going to go straight through the building at the bottom ... needless to say it was just as hairy going back up it at the end of the night ..  

So many wonderful memories, photos, collections of seashells & dried coral which we managed to get through customs on our return ...
