Ko Lipe is often overlooked by tourists due to the fact that it is a lot further South from the more well trodden Thai islands of Phuket, Phi Phi, and Pha-Ngan. However, it is one of the most picturesque places that I have ever been to; as soon as we saw pictures of it we were eager to visit and it did not disappoint.
There are lots of things to do in Langkawi; however during our time here we didn’t do a lot of them. If you’ve read the previous few posts, you’ll know that we’ve spent the last few weeks in tourist hotspots and big cities where we’ve been running round trying to do lots of activities. We’d been craving some beach relaxation time.
After a while on the road, I think it’s fair to say that my body could be coping better with the tropical conditions. The mosquitos that have been relentlessly biting me through the day, and in some places we’ve also had bed bugs that have had a go at night. Even when I escape to the water the tropical fish bite me! I’m not sure what my blood type is, but suffice to say that if Dracula was knocking around I’d have a pretty sizeable bounty on my head.
