In Langkawi – Heading To Koh Lipe

So here I am in Langkawi, I have been here once many years ago – and I have to admit I wasn’t impressed. I’m still not now to be honest, the only thing that floors me here time after time is the cheap booze!

RM48 for 1L of Absolut, RM3 per beer! It’s nuts.

We drove down to Penang late last night and took the ferry early this morning.

It was a uneventful trip – it was quite choppy though. It takes about 2hrs45mins to get from Penang to Langkawi and costs RM115 for a return ticket.


There are car parks nearby and they cost around RM5 per day.

Sadly it rained the whole day today in Langkawi so we didn’t get to go on the cable car or see the sky bridge (which was our point of staying over).

Hopefully we can see it on the way back as we have a few hours spare.

We are off to Koh Lipe at 9.30am tomorrow – its a 1 hour journey and costs around RM240 return.

Hope the weather is good there! Can’t wait to get stuck into my first dives in Thailand!

I’m updating from my iPhone in the hotel room after some good drinks and good laughs with friends – ah the wonders of technology.

    KY: Yah it’s around there, we bought 3 crates at RM45 each – so that works out at about RM1.95 or so per can.

    Mark Leo: Had one since the first night it was launched by Maxis? See here – Maxis Official iPhone 4 Launch In Malaysia At Gardens and my review here – The Latest Buzz – Apple iPhone 4 – My Review – you even commented on the first post – LOL.
