Longtail TransportPosted: May 2, 2011
There is no pier in Koh Lipe. Everything- every bottle of water, tomato and tank of propane comes over from the mainland by small cargo boat and is transferred to Longtail Boats for landing on the beach. Seasonal weather and where the cargo needs to go determine what side of the island they use for the raft up and transfer. Prices for most things are higher on Koh Lipe than mainland Thailand and this has to be one of the big reasons.
