We’re spending the next six nights on Pulau Langkawi, the largest island in Langkawi, Malaysia.
KUL -> LGK
The taxi ride back to KLIA-LCCT was even more full on than going in. The cab’s fan belt was broken so the air con didn’t work. So imagine a seventies/eighties Datsun style cab driving 120+ km ph down a highway with no air con, all four windows down and no seat belts. Unreal! We even had to stop for fuel because the cab didn’t have enough to make it all the way. But we got there alive and well, and the cabbie was still smiling.
We booked Air Asia flights to Langkawi from KLIA LCCT. The flights were really cheap (MYR170 or about $55 return), which included Xpress boarding which allows you get a good seat as there is no seat allocation. We got front row which was good but then again the flight was only one hour.The plane was an almost new Airbus A300 which was immaculate.
A nice easy flight and easy cab ride to our accommodation meant we were eating at sunset on the beach.
Beach Garden Resort
We’re staying at a place called the Beach Garden Resort on Pantai Cenang (beach). It’s not flash, but it is clean, comfortable and affordable. It’s right on the beach which is amazing.
Today it’s about 30°c but the water is nice, and we also have air-con in our room. We get a big breakfast every day and our room is serviced which is good.
We’re starting to look for good Malaysian food to eat because we’ve mostly seen western food restaurant (restoran!) here so far. We’ve got a reccommendation to try tonight. Yum.
