Koh Lipe. Thailand’s most famous secret island.

I hate to be the one who says a place is not what it used to be. I hear this on a regular basis from foreigners who have been living in Thailand for 20 years as well as from those whoțve only been here six months. Disapproving of change shows one’s superiority regarding residence; it […]
