Can be rated as the best island in the Thailand. Easy to reach by boat from PakBara ferry terminal. And the best is this island is open for all seasons.

I like Koh Lipe for a multitude of reasons but the squalor spoils the enjoyment. The dumping of rubbish is a real concern and the resultant mosquito problem is I believe because of that. The sea is beautifully warm and the sand very soft but...More

Come to JK Blue Thai Massage. They tell you everything you need to know. Owners are Thai/Swedish and are very helpful. You find them on sunrise street, close to Mali resort and Barracuda bar & restaurant

There is an immigration office on the island (east side of pattaya beach, in front of police station) where I think you can do this. However, it's only open during high season.
