I'm looking to visit SP next year, but I'm looking for when is the BEST TIME. That point where there's less rain, cooler weather, and most importantly: cheaper airfare. I'm looking to fly in to Penang from Canada.
What are the locals like? Are they friendly? Guarded? Do they like tourists or consider them to be a hassle?
Does SP have local transit to get around or is everything effectively walking distance? Keep in mind I walk about 10KM everyday.
I am travelling with my best friend to Malaysia by mid July 2015. We are going to stay for two weeks there.
Our plan is as follows:
- Go to Langkawi Island for 4 days.
- Go to Penang Island for 4 days.
- Go to Kuala Lumpur for the rest of the period.
Please advise top areas & city center name in both Langkwai & Penang. Also the top beach names as we would love to swim in nice beach & to dive as well, also the beach clubs. Thus, we need your help to determine which areas to tackle for our accommodation.
Also, thanks to advise the city center name in Kuala Lumpur and/or which areas best to stay at. As our target is to stay near shopping areas, places to visit or do & the nice restaurants. We can go to clubbing as well.
Plus thanks to inform me about the things which can be done in Kuala Lumpur & where to do it.
Please feel free to advise any other islands (other than Langkwai & Penang) were we can visit & perform in a/b activities.
Thanks all in advance.

Hello! I'm planning a 3-day trip to Langkawi in a couple of weeks and looking into hotels. I'm planning on doing a couple of day tours to Pulau Payar and the Cable Car, so I want to make sure I stay somewhere where I can easily be picked up, since I will be traveling alone. I'm currently looking at the Aseania or faveHotel. Any suggestions?? Thanks!

Hi guys I am posting these up in our various honeymoon locations Singapore,KK,KL and Langkawi so if you can help out on any of the others feel free to pop over and answer away.
Myself and partner (wife when travelling) are trying to plan an itinerary and want to find out about the kinda of stuff that isn't in the tour guides (markets festivals etc.) as well as your personal recommendations.
In Langkawi we are staying in the berjaya 29th July - 2nd Aug. Any recommendations for these dates please help out.
We have decided on a Jet Ski Tour (so long as we can find a company that is eco friendly) a mangrove tour and the sky bridge so far. Any recommendations on these)
Cheers and thank-you in advance!
Planning to visit Langkawi btw sept 23-27. How is the weather expected?There can be rain but it would be short spans and sunshine inbetween-Correct?Would the sea be rough or risky for island hoping?Is the sky bridge still closed for maintenance?reopen date-any idea??
Hi VTers - it's been a while since I've visited the forums, but I know I can count on the expertise here! I'm staying at the Berjaya Langkawi with my other half for the last week in September (should be a quiet time in Langkawi, I think?). Now, while we were sold on the chalet concept, we really aren't big resort people and want to be able to explore the island and eat out independently. My understanding is that the Berjaya is fairly cut off (except for the Oriental Village which doesn't appeal), so we're wondering how would be best to get out and about.
Is cycling feasible, or is this only suitable for short journeys? Would you recommend car hire? My partner owns a scooter in Italy, but I'm not sure how safe renting one of these is in Malaysia? The last one we rented abroad (Uruguay) came with one-size-fits-all helmets which wouldn't have done very much in a crash.
Many thanks in advance!
I will be on Langkawi between 20th and 26th of May.
I would like to reserve a fishing trip, I’m interested in deep sea fishing and other options.
Please advise where should I make the booking? thanks a lot
We booked the Malibest Resort in Langkawi (Pantai Cenang) for a trip in May. I was just wondering, if we are to do island hopping, where do we have to go to book and, is Pantai Cenang far from where the pier/s is/are for the island hopping tour?
We plan to stay 3 or 4 months between Jan - April. We are looking for a 2 bd room condo close to the beach and nightlife areas. Please advise where is a good place to stay and the cost of rental. Thanks you

Looking to indulge for one dinner - thinking of eating at Bon Ton or Datai Restaurant but leaning towards Bon Ton since its nearer and Datai looks really expensive.
Anybody with inputs - other recommended resort - good food, good ambiance - expensive but manageable, budget price is best. :P
And estimate of how much for a good dinner in Bon Ton?
