Koh Lipe

8 Magic moments on the island, mermaids aside

Ok, so maybe I wasn’t able to get the mermaids on camera…but I did manage to capture some charmed moments anyway! Koh Lipe is a tiny hidden island in the cornflower blue depths of the Andaman sea…

Koh Lipe

“In the deepest spot of all, stands the castle of the Sea King. Its walls are built of coral, and the long, gothic windows are of the clearest amber. The roof is formed of shells, that open and close as the water flows over them. Their appearance is very beautiful, for in each lies a glittering pearl, which would be fit for the diadem of a queen.” 

Hans Christian Anderson, The Little Mermaid

    1. Thanks! The bar was one of the coolest parts of the trip. It’s really crazy the kind of people you meet when you travel… the owner had already been around the world, lived in Japan and Canada, and once had a rasta bar on the beach…
