Thanks for any suggestions.
Hi Suzy Q ,
Check the Koh Lipe web site :- http://www.kohlipethailand.com/
It is very informative. However as the high season has only just started - I am not sure if the ferry from Phuket to Koh Lanta has started again. Check this Koh Lanta site :-
The problem is that Koh Lipe is in Satun Province and part of Tarotao Island's National Park in the Buthang group of Islands at the same latitude as the northern cape of Langkawi, Malaysia - a long long way from Phuket. (as an aside Lipe is no longer as nice as it used to be - mind you the same can be said for many places)
