We are planning to travel to Koh Lanta in late July 2011, and we then want to travel to Koh Lipe before moving on to Langkawi. We ideally wanted to do this via boat without going back to the mainland, however we have read that as July will be low season in Koh Lipe we can't do this.
We've read some conflicting information as we have read that there is only one boat a day from May to November from Koh Lipe to Pak Bara, but other places have said that there are some other boats that run but not as often. As Koh Lipe seems to be increasing in popularity, is it likely that this low season there will be more boats?
Can anyone help as to the best way to go from Koh Lanta to Koh Lipe then on to Langkawi? Obviously if there are no boats we will go back to the mainland, however ideally we would like to use as many boats to do the route as possible!
Also, does anyone know if we could go from Koh Lanta to Langkawi direct, possibly having to miss out Koh Lipe?
Thanks for any help!
