Here we come the beautiful Langkawi Island!!

We got on the Malaysia Airline flight from KL to Langkawi, an 1 hour short flight was quite pleasent. We checked in at Sheraton Langkawi Resort, thanks to starhot rates (employee rates). The resort was lovely overlooking the Andaman sea, and rooms are set amongst the beautiful garden on the hill.

Langkawi Island is not so big, probably approx 2hour drive to go around the island, so we hired a car for 3 days, we had a great deal from dodgy local hire-car place, RM50 a day for hiring a car (AUD$20). This company didn't even ask for a credit card... The car was pretty rusty and old, but we had no problem with it for whole time there. The only thing was that we got stopped by security all the time when we came back to the resort because our car didn't look like one of Sheraton's guests haha. They used explosive detector around the car and also asked us to open the boot.

Anyway we drove the car around the island, stopped at a few beautiful waterfalls that you can swim in at the bottom. We also stopped at a few beautiful Beaches. Our favorite was Cenang Beach, it's got a cool reggae bar right on the beach. We spent great time there with a few beer and nachos!!

By the way Hiro got a cold with a high fever on Langkawi, and it got worse on the freezing air-cond bus to Krabi. We are bit worried that he's got dengue fever or something. to be continued...
