Koh Lipe, Thailand, Day #5 Kennett’s Tour
What did we do today, on Koh Lipe, Thailand, Day #5 Kennett’s Tour? It was a lazy, enjoy Akira Lipe Resort day. And boy we did that in style. This place is just incredible. A fantastic buffet breakfast at the beautiful breezy restaurant, but the main pool and beach. I have to admit I was a little dusty as I met the Chefs last night at the bar and they introduced me to Thai Rum, oh dear!!! Great guys from all over Thailand, and seriously bashing out some amazing food as you’ll see from yesterday and today, and more detail in IsLifeaRecipe.net later.
Afterwards we had a wander down Walking Street, the place with all the shops, bars and restaurants. All mostly shut as this was early. But we popped in a few shops and bought a few bits – critical was Thai mosquito spray – these things here are the size of sparrows. I recommend buying your spray local – it’s in a pink spray bottle. A MUST!
And then rain stopped play, or did it? Of course it didn’t. We went all together for an hour foot massage. Heavenly! I love rain!
What a brilliant day today was – and here it comes in photo form for your enjoyment (not as much as ours though).
Koh Lipe, I will give you one knock though. Clean your beaches. Pay some guys to get in there and pick the shit up from the beach. I watched this tonight. I assume a tourist/visitor to your island, black bag in hand, wandering down the beach picking up the flotsam laying there. That is just wring. You should be proud of what you have and want it to be pristine – please. A little more attention at that. And to the lady that was doing this cleaning up exercise, whoever you are, and if ever you read this – be proud, I was amazed and humbled to watch you!!!
Dinner tonight was at Shy Bar, or The Steakhouse on the beach. We sat down and got the drinks menu, hold on a minute this looks familiar. Yep this restaurant is owned by our hotel, Akira Lipe Resort. At least we know we’re in good hands.
