One Malay word you should know if you are in Langkawi – “Pantai” = “Beach”.
I wrote a blog about Langkawi after my visit in April 2012, and I have just returned from my third holiday in Langkawi in about four years. I will combine my previous blog with this, adding more information. The smaller photos are from April 2012, the larger from December 2012 – so you can tell
- In August 2008 we drove up to Kuala Perlis and caught the ferry over to the main ferry terminal in Langkawi. All we had to do was phone a contact who ran a parking lot, give an approximate arrival time, and he bought the ferry tickets. When we arrived we could park undercover and he gave us the tickets, and pointed out where to catch the ferry.
- In April we flew on Air Asia from Penang to Langkawi, which is about 25 minutes in the air, but from when we left home by taxi to when we were in our hotel room about four hours had elapsed. Which was about the same amount of time as driving and catching the ferry, although the flight was less strenuous.
