The water is clear and incredibly turquoise which is the specific characteristic of Maldives will welcome you.

As Koh Lipe is beside the border of Malaysia, there are many ways to travel to Koh Lipe. However, the way admin would recommend is taking ferry from Malaysia to Thailand through Langkawi!
