Camping in Koh Lipe

The camping in Koh Lipe is perfect for the budget traveler. If you don´t bring your own tent you can  you can rent a tent, or you can rent a tent bungalow or you can rent a hammock.

The bungalow tent is the size of a tent but made of bamboo, Very cute and it keeps your stuff a little more safe.  :)

It comes with a shared shower an toilet (like all campings do) and Tan has a vision of building up a community kitchen as well.  If you really are on a tight budget then buying food is basically your hghest cost after rooming. That makes this realy optimal for the budget traveler. The camping also have a very cosy bar overlooking the resort in front of them and a tiny bit of Pattaya beach.

Check out their homepage  or facebook page for more details on the prices.  Or use [Agoda] to book your stay.

I love the whole idea of taking what other people have rejected and make it into something useful.  To use the resources that is and not buy new.

Family Song resort Koh Lipe

Asiatour Koh Lipe Family Song Bungalow 001 Asiatour Koh Lipe Family Song Bungalow 002

My cement bungalow (it has a cement floor instead of standing on wodden poles like the wood bungalow.

It’s a small resort a bit off the beaten path but very friendly staff and clean place. It´s not at all far from the beach but going to the walking street forces you to either walk via Pattaya beach or around the power plant, there is no direct route.
Perfect for a budget traveler since they are quite inexpensive. I paid RM 56 / night during low season.
A few varieties of bungalow but all have a small terrace where you can sit. (I enjoy that).


Open: reception 8am to 5:30 pm (but sometimes the owner stays longer.)
Directions: walk through Seaside resort from Pattaya beach and you will find it to your left.
Low season: yes
Wifi : yes in all rooms and quite good!
Book your stay in Koh Lipe at  [Agoda].

Elephant bar in Koh Lipe, Thailand

This place actually gave a longtail boat for a bar!

Asiatour Koh Lipe elephant bar 001
It’s very cosy and they gave a great menu.
If you are a single traveler you can borrow a book here and just hang. (Or if you have company who also reads a lot..)
They will serve fruit salad instead of french fries to many of the sandwiches.
The menu is a little bit on the expensive side for a budget traveller.
You can actually get a NYC sandwich here called the Vinnie´s. Good and a lot of food.

Asiatour Koh Lipe elephant bar 003
And pulled pork. I mean, seriously, pulled pork. Delicious!
At night they have a live performance and I am told it is a great place to party.

Open: from 9 am to late
Directions: on the walking street not too far from Pattaya beach on you right.
Open low season: yes but closed on Mondays
Wifi: no

King crab on Koh Lipe has great kebabs

You must try the kebab here it’s awesome!

Asiatour Koh Lipe King Crab 008

Pork kebab for only 150 bath

They have a great variety of meals and drinks and the food is definitely very tasty. Serving salad to each meal is quite rare in Thailand.

The place can seem to be a bit large (which I normally think is a bit boring) but it is cosy and it has a nice view over the trees and rooftops of Koh Lipe.
Staff is super service minded.
The music they are playing is country covers of popular music. I think it’s a Thai band playing but I am not sure….

Las Vegas baby!

Så otroligt många av mina vänner reser till Las vegas,. Det verjar vara lite av det nya New York. Jag antar att alla har varit i New York och vill uppleva något nytt.  Jag? Näe har inte varit vare sig i NYC eller Las Vegas. INte ens i USA.

Jag tror att Las Vegas är fantastiskt, och otroligt och vansinnigt galet på en och samma gång.

Om jag åkte till Las Vegas skulle jag självklart spela. (Jag heter ju Player) men jag skulle nog inte våga mig på de dyrare spelen eller satsa stort. Känns som en risktagning jag inte skulle vara beredd att ta med pengar jag hellre lägger på annat.  Drar hellre då i de enarmade banditerna.

Jag skulle vandra upp och ner för The Strip och se alla hotellen och världens alla sevärdheter på en och samma gång.  Om det nu ens är möjligt att gå, USA är väl inte kända för promenadvänlighet prcis. Fast det är det sättet jag föredrar att ta mig runt på ett nytt ställe.

Jag skulle åka berg och dalbana på toppen av en skysrapa (jo, det kan man..) .

Stratosphere_roller[Bild från Wikipedia]

Sen skulle jag åka ut och se öknen ordentligt och ett besök på Hooverdammen skulle också ligga i min agenda.

Vad skulle du göra om du åkte till Las Vegas?

    Det finns säkert lika många anledningar att åka till Las Vegas som det finns människor som åker dit. Bland de vanliga hör nog att gifta sig, att se någon av alla shower, bachelor- / bachelorettefest eller helt enkelt bara se syndens stad. Många åker säkert dit för at spela också.…

I´m flying in Langkawi

The Skytrex here in Langkawi is a whole lot of fun!

It´s excillerating and gives you a sure rush of adrenaline. I have been there two times so far, done both intermediate and advanced and I love the ride it takes me on!

The track we did (Advanced) took us less than 1,5 hours. We felt a bit like the guide rushed us a little. He offered to take pictures during the entire trex and that was great! :)

Here are pictures from yesterday. If you want to read more about how to get there, what it costs etc then klick [here]

Go to Koh Lipe from Langkawi during low season?

Is it possible to go to Koh Lipe from Langkawi during low season? I heard Koh Lipe is closed during rainy season, is that true?

Well Immigration in Koh Lipe is closed during low season in Koh Lipe and yes, many places are closed also.

With immigration closed that means you have to go to Satun first to clear immigration before you can take the ferry to Koh Lipe. Sure it takes a bit longer time and it costs a little bit more but it is perfectly doable.

How: Take the ferry from the Jeti in Kuah to Satun, clear immigration, go to Pok Bara (the harbour) and take a ferry there to Koh Lipe.

Many resorts and restaurants, especially on the beaches is closed. There is lot less tourists visiting the island but you can go, if you want to. You will get even more serenity on the island now than on the bustling high season.

There will be rain but not all the time and the rain is not cold so it´s ok. More winds also but that is great when it is 35 degrees hot.

SO, yes, tiy can go to Koh Lipe during low season /rainy season for sure. And it will probably be absolutely amazing because so many people heard it´s closed and wont even try to go. It might even be like it was before it got exploited?

I know one hotel, one bar and one restaurant that is open. I know there are more places open, opeople are still living on this island and needs food  and drinks, right?  But I cannot say for a certainty what is open.

OMG! The bar is open, Pooh´s, the restaurant, is open and Gipsy resort on the main road is also open.

Enjoy your stay in Koh Lipe!
