Koh Lipe (Bundhaya Beach) ferry port in Thailand connects you with Langkawi (Kuah Jetty) in Langkawi Island with a choice of up to 7 ferry crossings per week. The duration of the Koh Lipe to Langkawi crossing is from 1 hour 30 minutes and the crossing is operated by Bundhaya Speed Boat.
Koh Lipe is the southernmost island belonging to Thailand, laying 60 km away from the mainland. There are frequent day trips to the surrounding islands, which are recommended as the easiest and most efficient way to travel. The island itself is part of the Adang Archipelago, a cluster of around ten islands, though Koh Lipe is the only one that is inhabited. There are myriad of resorts and hotels dotted around the island which are popular among tourists, many of them providing high quality service to their guests.
For transport around the island there are official motorbike taxis that can fit a couple of people at a time, though it is advised to negotiate a price beforehand. The taxi drivers wear purple vests to make them more visible to customers, and they will often seek out tourists so finding a taxi often isn’t too difficult.
There are several ferry routes departing the port each day, with the destinations changing throughout the day. The longer crossings are typically towards the late afternoon and the shorter crossings are towards the morning. It is worth noting that there are a limited number of ATM’s on the island, and they are often erratic and unreliable, so it is worthwhile saving some extra cash for any emergencies.
