2012 April: Malaysia: Langkawi

Wednesday, just arrived in Langkawi International Airport from KL via Air Asia for only 26MYR (300php, 2012).  What to expect on this type of booking?  The airline might possibly send notifications about rescheduling your flight so make your itinerary flexible.


Taxi is the main form of public transportation in the island.  Better buy a coupon at the desk in Arrival Hall, then hand it to the cab driver at the waiting area to go to your hotel.

I choose to stay in Best Star Resort because it is facing Cenang Beach.  Not much to say on the area, water is not so healthy and a bit dark.  I prefer more the islands in Kota Kinabalu.



If you wanted to do island hopping by driving your own jetski for almost 3 hours, visit http://seemanwatersports.com/jet-ski-island-tour-3hrs/.

The main street has various selections of restaurants.

Souvenir Shops (even those in the malls) offer most of the vases that are locally made in Hanoi or Halong, Vietnam.


Other visited places...
Langkawi Eagle Square

  



I would consider Skybridge as the major attraction here, where Skypos resides.  Make sure you check the maintenance schedule http://www.panoramalangkawi.com/ so you would be less disappointed if in case you are there when it is closed.

For this trip, I sent out 9 postcards and left 1 card for my thank you note.
