Heading to the gorgeous islands of Thailand?

Make sure to plan your trip wisely!

The best time to go is between November and May when the high season is in full swing, and ferries will be running regularly. However, if you are planning to go during the monsoon or low season, from June to October, you should be aware that ferries do not usually operate and you will need to arrange an alternative route, such as going through Hat Yai.

Head to Telaga Harbour or Kuah Jetty to get to Koh Lipe from Langkawi...

From there, you’ll hop on a speedboat ferry that will transport you directly to Koh Lipe in 90 minutes. Take the ferry for a scenic ride and explore the area which shuttles back and forth twice a day, between 9.30 am and 2.30 pm. You can easily get your ferry tickets online at these THREE links.
