Getting to Malaysia
Keep in mind that Malaysia is one hour ahead of Thai time.
Ko Lipe to Pulau Langkawi
From mid-October to mid-April, Tigerline, Bundhaya Speedboat and Satun Pak Bara Speedboat Club run daily from Ko Lipe to Pulau Langkawi in Malaysia (1000B to 1200B, 2½ hours). Departures are at 9.30am, 10.30am, 11am and 4pm. Head to the immigration office in the centre of Hat Pattaya 1½ hours ahead to get stamped out. In reverse, boats leave Pulau Langkawi for Ko Lipe at 9.30am and 2.30pm Malaysian time.
Satun to Kuala Perlis or Pulau Langkawi
There are currently no speedboats or long-tail boats running from Satun to Pulau Langkawi in Malaysia.
It's possible to take a minivan from Satun to Kuala Perlis (400B) in Malaysia via the Wang Prajan/Wang Kelian border crossing, but they don't run every day. On's Guesthouse sells tickets.
At the Border
Citizens of the US, EU, Australia, Canada and several other countries may enter Malaysia for up to 90 days without prior visa arrangements. If you have questions about your eligibility, check with the nearest Malaysian embassy or consulate and apply for a visa in advance.
