    what are people's general thoughts and opinions on ko lipe as ive heard very mixed reports.

    i like to chill out and swim om a nice uncrowded beach if possible,was gonna head straight from trang to ko kradan and then to lipe and then back up to lanta or railay but ive been advised to save time it would be better going lipe first as its furthest south and then heading back up to kradan etc.

    will be going in april,any particular beaches,resorts accommodation i should visit/avoid.

    thanks for any help

    hi have a look at my review,you might have already . Might answer some questions. I personally liked it. April will be very hot. Plenty of uncrowded beaches if you like. I would head to Hat Yai then mini bus to Pak Bara pier then speedboat to Lipe. From there you can catch tigerline ferries north and stop off where you like. any questions ask away.
    cheers

    from what I can gather you can get picked from the airport or railway station at Trang. This will involve a minivan to the nearest pier and most likely a boat trip to one of the Trang islands where you would meet up with the ferry on it's trip south.I'm sure it will be pretty seamless.If your flight doesn't match up you will be able to head Trang railway station and opposite there are all the travel agencies which will sort it out for you.
    cheers
