Koh Lipe up to Phi PhiHi, I arrive in kuala lumpur on the afternoon of the 2nd January, and I need to be in Bangkok by the evening of the 9th January.
I'm wanting to visit maybe 2/3 islands in that week and am weighing up my options;
I could either just fly from KL to Phuket and look around phi phi and koh lanta from there, flying out to Bangkok on the morning of the 9th.
Or i'm thinking of flying from KL to Langkawi on the evening of the 2nd, going to koh lipe the next morning, then onto koh kradan, koh lanta and Phi Phi before catching flight to Bangkok.
Which do you guys think I should do? I would like a relaxing week so don't want to do too much travelling, is it easy to get ferries between koh lipe up to Phi Phi, or will it be too much?
Thanks for your help :)

2The Tigerline ferry that plies this route runs once per day. This means when you reach Koh Kradan you have to wait until the next day or day after to go onto Lanta etc. The reality is that packing and unpacking and checking in and out of hotels on almost a daily basis is not everybodys idea of a relaxing week. It's alot of moving about for what ? what do you think these beaches have to offer ? As long as you realise this and are happy with doing it then I think the second option is better.

3Thanks for your replies, I really just want a week of relaxing on the most beautiful beaches I can find, as the month before and after is going to be pretty hectic.
if I only wanted to go to a couple of these islands which would you recommend? I suppose I could skip a couple, what if I went to koh lipe, kradan and Phi Phi, would I be missing much on Lanta?
can the ferries be quite tedious or are they okay?
thanks again :)

5okay great thanks, I think i'm going to go to koh lipe and see how I go from there.
i'm looking up the ferries from langkawi to koh lipe, is this a reputable site; http://telaga-terminal.com/? It's cheaper than tigerline, don't know if it's any faster though?
