Although only one reply, but it has been read 27 times. I guess there are interested parties... But somehow they are not stepping up.. hehe

To accommodate the curious minds of those who had viewed it, i'm putting up the tentative schedule for the trip. This is not a business trip. This is a leisure trip which i'm extending to my fellow divers in MUW:

Day 1 - 22 Nov:
Travel from Penang to Pak Barra Jetty - by car
Boat to Koh Lipe

Day 2/3/4 - 23-24 Nov:
Dive and Dive - 3 dives a day for three consecutive days

Day 5 - 25 Nov:
Travel back to penang

Diving and accomodation both with Forra Diving and staying at Sunrise beach.

So, if u are dry to the max, come and join us for this relax and lazy dive. All dives are to be conducted in 'cha-cha mode'.

gavstang, too bad bro. Love to have u on board.

rushd4n and meik meik, since i never do any commercial trip, the way we put it is very simple:

* Ferry from Pak Barra is at RM100 (return).
* Accomodation, one will be spending around RM250 or less for a bamboo bungalow during the whole trip.
* Dives (total 9 dives) is around RM840 -with ur own equipment and lunch on board is provided (rental add another RM120). If you dive more, will have to pay more.

The rest as for makan, shopping etc is on our own (makan banyak, kena bawa duit banyak as well). Transport from Penang can tumpang and just share the cost of petrol, parking (maybe around RM100++ return). This just an estimated amount. Basically, just diving, accomodation and transportation it can go as low as RM1200 max for the whole trip. Plus shopping and makan (depending on what u shopped and eat), maybe it can go up to RM1600 max (depending on you).

As per me and mamakpenang, we just wanna do a cheap trip. The suggested amount is just an estimate. It should be much lower than that. Hope the brief info helps guys. Do let me know if you wish to join so that i can start planning and do the necessary booking.

Won't effect koh lipe. Andaman area high season right now. But come December, busy season again everywhere.

Thanks bro fariz sawal for the valuable info.

For those who had been to Koh Lipe, pls feel free to share some tips. I did a google search. Seems to me Lipe is more on diving, snorkelling, massage and laid back. What else can we do on the island of Lipe? Shopping? Hiking?
