The best place for travelling is to go to the sea... I would like to present the photos along our review as well. I will go to Koh Lipe in Satun provice. It is possible to do 1 day trip without spending a night on the island, this is less time consuming and you can save some money by not paying for the accommodation.
I would like to present you the natural architecture " Rock Arch", it is the symbol of Koh Khai Island and Tarutao National Park
There are numerous size of stone at Koh Hin Ngam, they are in round shape with black color. They become shiny once they are soaked in the sea water.

To start our journey!
To start the journey, we need to start from Pak Bara Pier in Satun Province, the travelling program of the day is to go to Koh Lipe which is far from Pak Bara Pier about 67 kilometers. I will discover the beauty of this island .
At 09.30 hrs. it is time to start the journey, the weather is very nice today. It is very suitable for taking a boat to travel on the sea. To get on the speed boat, it is such the convenient and speedy service. I am so excited.
For me, this is my first time for going to Lipe Island, I think this is one attraction that I must come once in my life time.
At 10.30 hrs. it takes around 1hour and I finally reach Koh Khai Island, the speed boat will stop here. The weather is extremely nice.
I walk with bare feet in order to feel the sand and the sea. I will spend time here for 30 minutes.
I would like to tell you that the sea is crystal clear,I would like to jump into the sea now.
Many tourists come to travel in this island because it is the passage way to Lipe Island, Adang Island and Ravee Island.
This period (March) is high season, the weather is very calm. As a result , it enhances us the chance to see the beautiful sky and the sea.
To walk and view the architecture of Rock Arch, as I mentioned earlier that this is the symbol of Koh Khai and Tarutao National Park.
Koh Khai Island is very important island for the nature because it is the place where sea turtles have laid their eggs. This island is enriched with natural diversity. The tourists are not permitted to spend the night on the island and there are no any amenities available on this island.
There is the belief that the lover couples who have passed through this rock arch, their love will be lasted forever.
There is also the beautiful poem written on this rock arch
"The Arch of Infinite Love"
"The Bent Arch... At Tarutao.. Satun"
The place where is the legend of lover couple
It has enhanced the infinite
of our love forever "
At 11.30 hrs. I have left Koh Khai and it takes around 30 minutes to reach our next destination " Koh Hin Ngam"
Koh Hin Ngam is the small island, it is close to Adang - Ravee island. Once I have seen at the far end, I think that the beach of this island is black but it is actually the color of black stones. The nature is always amazing.
Koh Hin Ngam Island, it has long legend that all stones are the malediction of God Tarutao, if someone has taken the stone out of the island, he/ she will not have the happy life.
There is also the sign to remind the tourists.
The stones on this island are very beautiful, they are in round shape and they are very shiny. If you would like to get the beautiful photos, I highly recommend you to take the photo at the zone which is close to rim. It is absolutely beautiful because it reflects with the sun ray.
At 12.00 hrs. it is time to jump into the sea ... I am heading to Rong Nam Jah Bang, it is the place where I will do snorkeling.
It takes only 15 minutes from Koh Hin Ngam Island to Rong Nam Jah Bang, I am ready to do snorkeling. I have got all necessary equipments for doing snorkeling. I have followed the instruction of the staffs for safety reason
The tide is quite strong, hence I need to be careful while doing snorkeling.
I am able to see the numerous corals at this zone. The sea is not so clear.
At 13.00 hrs. I have finished doing snorkeling, it is time to continue to the next destination Koh Ravee Island, I have arrived at this at island around 13.00 hrs. I will have my lunch at this island.
After the first step at Koh Ravee Island, I can feel the beauty of this island, it is absolute place for relaxing.
The white sandy beach at Koh Ravee Island, it is very shady and calm. Many tourists like to come to this island.
The island at the far end is Koh Adang Island, it is about 1 kilometer from where I am.
The atmosphere is very nice, I really want to stay on this island for 2 days.
I could guarantee that you could not resist yourself from jumping into the sea because the sea is crystal clear.
I have also seen that there are many trees along the beach, they have expanded their branches. This creates shady atmosphere.
At 14.30 hrs. I left Koh Ravee Island, I continue to other island, Koh Phueng. I have taken many photos on the way to Koh Phueng.
Koh Phueng is the small island, it is not far from Lipe Island. It is well known about the beauty of coral and marine lives. Please be careful while doing snorkeling at Koh Phueng Island because the tide is quite strong.
ไม่ห่างจากเกาะผึ้ง ก็เดินทางมาถึง "เกาะหินซ้อน" ซึ่งเป็นเกาะที่มีความโดดเด่นตรงที่ลักษณะของหินสี่เหลี่ยมสองก้อน ตั้งซ้อนกันกลางทะเล ครับ เกาะนี้ เป็นเกาะหิน จึงไม่มีชายหาดรอบเกาะ แต่บริเวณรอบเกาะหินซ้อนนี้ก็ถือว่าเป็นจุดที่มีแนวปะการังที่สวยงาม มีทั้งปะการัง ดอกไม้ทะเล และสัตว์น้ำนานาชนิด ที่เหมาะในการมาดำน้ำตื้น ณ จุดนี้ครับ
Once I have looked at the far end and I have seen that those rocks are like the architecture, they are amazing.
The overlapped rocks! the place where should not be missed.
At 15.30 hrs. I finally reach Koh Lipe Island, below photo is the general geography of Lipe Island. The meaning of this island is the flat island like a paper, its shape looks like boomerang. This island is very popular for both Thai tourists and foreign tourists.
The speed boat has stopped at Lipe Island.
This is Lipe Island
There is the activity which should not be missed, it is to take a walk at Walking Street. This is the important street because there are various shops and entertainment complex along the way.
Normally, this walking street has open at 06.00 am, it is very crowded at night.
If I walk from Pattaya Beach, I am able to access to Chao Lae Beach, it takes about 10-15 minutes.
The atmosphere at the late afternoon is very nice, there are speedy boats along the beach.
Pattaya Beach is the most famous beach, there are various accommodation, restaurants and bars here.
The white sandy beach is amazing.
It is time to say goodbye to Lipe Island.
I need to go back to Pak Ba Ra Pier, it is all for 1 day trip at Lipe Island. Even though, it is such the short trip but I can feel how beautiful it is.
Please do not miss to visit here.
Goodbye Lipe Island
