If you want off-the-beaten-path, think no further than
Koh Lipe, Thailand.
This exotic destination has a bit of everything with over 50 resorts for every budget. It's easily accessible by ferry, but only for the adventurous. You throw your passports in a plastic bag and give them to the captain until you arrive…we say go for it because you only live once!
And what is more exotic than mixing in a dizzying crowd of travelers from around the world who come for the picture-perfect white sand beaches, first class diving, dining, snorkeling, nature-oriented daytrips to nearby islands, and relaxed yet lively atmosphere.
Koh Lipe is part of the Tarutao National Marine Park with over 50 uninhabited islands surrounding this gorgeous island. Best time to visit? During dry season which normally lasts from November to April. One of our favorite resorts is the Mountain Resort Koh Lipe but there are numerous off-the-beaten-path resorts here as well.
