Ko Rawi & Ko Lipe

East of Ko Adang is Ko Rawi, which is a rather small island although many coral reefs and tropical fish populate its southeast coast.

To the south of Ko Adang lies Ko Lipe, which is inhabited by about 500 chao nŠam (sea gypsies) who were thought to have originated from the Lanta islands in Krabi Province, making a living for themselves through fishing and the cultivation of vegetables and rice. Camping is allowed here. Otherwise, the chao nŠam will rent out huts for 150B to 300B per night.

Along the southern side of the island are several small 'beachy' coves and coral reefs. Again, the chao nŠam will provide hire boats for tours to the nearby islets.

You may hire boats from the chao to tour the nearby islets. Between Ko Tarutao and Ko Adang-Rawi is a small cluster of three islands called Muu Ko Klang (Middle Island Group), which is a great place for snorkeling. Ko Khai also has a terrific white-sand beach. The boat trip from Ko Tarutao to Ko Khai will take about 40 minutes.
