This isn’t my first visit to Sabah, i’ve been to Sandakan few years ago but this is my first visit to Semporna! And yes, the reason Semporna is because of Sipadan Island (: Always heard about the place but never serious planning for it and so, ta-da! I’m here on my birthday month, had my first dive, first island hike and met some new friends!
Koh Lipe is known as the Maldives of Thailand, they have crystal clear beach, white sand and perfect sky view. Well it does not have luxury floating resorts like Maldives but for me it is still consider compatible. We spent a night in Hatyai and then took the speedboat to Koh Lipe the next morning. Few main activities you can do here are snorkeling, diving, island hopping, happy hour and shopping, i got my hair braided for the first time here! I always love traveling especially on my birthday so my half thai boyfried (because he loves traveling to Thailand and he can speak thai very fluently), brought me here as my birthday gift ― Thank you and Happy 30th Birthday to myself (:
