via: Wave Journey
Home to about 500 Sea Gypsies, Koh Lipe is a small island on the coast of Southern Thailand. In true island form, it features beaches with clear, calm and shallow water. Koh Lipe is a diver’s dream. About an hour off shore is the 8 Mile Rock. The rock is a true deep sea spectacle, being home to some of the most beautiful sea life that you will ever see.
What better place to visit this summer than the home of the 2012 Olympic Summer Games? We all know of London and the London Bridge (pictured above). But what is usually not synonymous with the city is how beautiful, noisy, vibrant and truly multicultural London is. It is a megalopolis of people. The city lights up at night and is truly a must-see.
