My trip schedule to Koh Lipe


I would like to introduce regarding my trip schedule for Koh Lipe, Langkawi, Kuala Lumpur as the following.

I was leaving from Kansai International Airport, called KIX, to Langkawi by Air Asia

10. Jan. 2016: 23:35 – 0535 + 1day (KIX – Kuala Lumpur)

I just arrived early in the morning on schedule and hurried to the domestic airport, because the transit time is very tight. I would suggest you take the flight after one hour.

11. Jan. 2016: 07:30 -08:30 (Kuala Lumpur – Langkawi)

Due to the early in the morning, I couldn’t find the immigration as you see the following picture. The booth was only one…

You can enjoy the coffee, if you have time. But I would suggest you have the breakfast in Langkawi.

In my case, it was on time all the time until arrive in Koh Lipe.

After you arrive in Langkawi, you need to do the two mandatory things. Firstly, it should be exchange. You see the main bank in Malaysia at the exit, after you go through the baggage claim. If you do not have the Thai Bhats, you should exchange the Thai currency as well. However, the currency rate was very bad, because exchange trough Malaysia Ringgit. I would like to recommend you go to ATM in Seven Eleven directly, after you arrive in Koh Lipe immediately.

Secondly, of course, it should be to get the Sim card as well. I chose RM61 for the high usage user. I suppose it was enough to use around one week travel. As the result, I am just surprised at the speed of LTE. It was similar to the JP speed.

Then, if you have enough time to do something, you can go to Cenang Mall directly from the airport. It takes around 10 – 20 minutes within RM20. You can walk around there to find the suitable restaurant.

Then, I went to the Telega terminal to take ferry. You get the round ticket in the website in advance as well. So far, I did not confirm the full booking for your information.

The system of the immigration from Malaysia to Thai was very tradition and out of the fluent system. You need to enjoy. Many travellers complaint that the passport was taken until they arrived in Koh Lipe. I have the same feeling. If the staff loose the passport, what do we do ??? We need to pray… But usually, there is no issue. Don’t worry.

This picture was immigration. Good Luck!

After finished everything, you can enjoy drinking with reading book for instance. There is nothing to do there. You will find the only one Arabic restaurant.

My departure time was 14:30 and arrive at 15:00. It took around 1.5 hours via one hour difference from Malaysia to Thai. I arrived around there by the traditional boat!

After I received the passport, eventually, I arrived at Mountain resort. I booked around JPY 9,000 per night.

The shuttle from the hotel to the downtown was available from 15:00 to 23:00 in front of the hotel. Very useful. I went to the downtown for dinner like that. I love hamburger. It was similar price to the hotel restaurant.

Sometimes, I ate the Thai curry, which was super hot!

After I spent 3 nights there, I moved back to Langkawi via the following immigration. That’s funny. Again, the passport was taken…

This is the boat for the ferry again. The departure time was at 10:30 and I arrived around 12:30.

I got the snack for lunch, then, I went to the ropeway directly by taxi. It took around 10 minutes from Telega terminal. You should go directly with your small baggage.

Then, I stayed the family resort in one night in Langkawi. It was located near the airport and taken around 20 minutes. The hotel name was Aseania resort Langkawi. All hotels are booked in Expedia for your reference.

Then, I took the flight at 17:00 on 14.Jan to go to Kuala Lumpur. Remark: You do not have to carry everything, especially any liquids. You can buy there. And you see the following. Why do you need the folk for the resort?

The airport was very unique. After the gate, you should walk to the airplane like that. I was excited to see the big airplane from the ground.

After I arrived at the Kuala Lumpur KLIA2, I took the train immediately to go to Bugit Bintang. The access was very good and easy. I checked in WOLO budget bintang hotel

I went to Tokyo street near the hotel.

Then, I went back to Japan at 15:00 and arrived 22:25. The access was very good from Sentral. But I suppose there was not enough time to go to the different station.

This trip was really nice. I change my environment immediately day by day and think about myself.

Have a nice trip!
