Walking Street Area - Koh Lipe
The centre of Koh Lipe's eating, drinking, shopping and nightlife, Walking Street comes alive when the road closes to motorbikes at sunset. Listen to live music, buy a locally made souvenir, get a tattoo, enjoy a massage or dine in an upscale restaurant.
Walking Street is the main thoroughfare connecting Koh Lipe’s beaches. Local taxis (motorcycles with sidecars) are based here, ready to take you anywhere on the island. Shops sell diving equipment, jewellery, souvenirs, clothing and there’s even an art gallery. You can experience a traditional Thai massage at one of the massage and beauty shops.
The islands pharmacies, supermarkets and even a 7/11 are here, too. There are a few reputable tattoo shops who ink you the traditional way – by hand, using sharpened bamboo dipped in ink.
At night enjoy cheap eats like sweet pancake and various Thai street food, or dine in an international restaurant. Cocktail bars, live music venues and pubs line the street providing entertainment until late at night.
The two main entrances to Walking Street are from Pattaya and Sunrise Beaches, though you can reach any part of the island from the side streets.
