HOW TO GET THERE?

Koh Lipe can be reached from Pak Bara pier in Satun province, southwest Thailand and Langkawi, Malaysia. Pak Bara is around one and half hour drive from Trang or Hat Yai. You can get a minibus transfer or a private taxi to Pak Bara from in front of the train station in both cities, or directly at the airport. To catch the last speedboat to Koh Lipe, the latest you should leave these two cities is 1.30 P.M, as the last speedboat departs Pakbara pier at 3.30 P.M. The ferry operates from 1st November to 15th May, and the speedboats all year around! Pak Bara pier is the most used departure point for Koh Lipe.

Both Trang and Hat Yai can be reached from Bangkok by plane, train or bus. You can also easily get to Hat Yai from Malaysia and Singapore.

A ferry service from Langkawi in Malaysia directly to Koh Lipe operates every year from the 15th of october to the 15th of may, with passengers clearing Thai immigration in Koh Lipe, in front of Bundhaya resort.

This direct connection during the high season from nearby Langkawi to Lipe has made the route Kuala Lumpur or Singapore - Langkawi - Koh Lipe shorter than the classic route Bangkok - Hat Yai or Trang - Pakbara - Lipe. It is now the prefered route for Europeans and Asians coming for a short visit directly to Koh Lipe.

Domestic and short haul flights in this part of Asia are offered by Thai Airways, Air Asia, Nok Air, Bangkok Airways from Bangkok to Hat Yai or Trang and by Air Asia, Malaysian Airlines and Tiger Airways from Kuala Lumpur to Langkawi or Singapore to Hat Yai.
