    It is the best island that I've ever see. Green sea and clear sky. The best bungalow is Daya Resort at White sand beach , operate by sea gypsy and not too many Thais people stay here , so it's quiet and private (Although I'm Thai but I choose to stay away from them). Also with the best sea food BBQ at night , may be you can eat the living lobster here.
    But if you don't mind , Addaman resort si also good but the back of resort is cemetery , very quiet at night.
    For lunch , the best is at Fishery Dept , the beach in front of it has a lot of big fish and of course you can catch it if you can.
    If you stay here a long time , you can walk around the island. All beaches is good for snockle esp. in front of Mountain resort and Andamon resort. Just only 20 m. from beach , you'll find flying fish , lobster or morrey. Nemo is very easy to find here.
    You can rent long tail boat for day trip to the other island and fishing. Don't miss Koh Pueng , rock condo with many big fish and Jaban channel with 7 color coral.
    We stay here for 2 weeks , we use only 14,000 here but please aware of Thai resturant (except Daya) , it's very expensive and it's not Thai style. Just try a little shop along walkway operated by sea gypsy , dilicious native taste and cheap.

    I stayed on Koh Lipe for about 1 week in February 2006. It's a small island with a chill vibe. There are no roads or vehicles. It's very basic. Many places don't take reservations. I'd recommend showing up during the week and walking around to find a place that feels right to you. It does get crowded on weekends during the busy season (November-February). Very few places have A/C and internet. It's also a bit of a challenge to reach from Bangkok. If this all appeals to you, check it out.
