|I arrived in Langkawi after a four hour boat trip and found a cheep room at a guest house in Kampung beach. Did I mention that it's HOT here. The beach is nice but a bit touristy . The rest of the day I just walked around and hung out on the beach. I looked into the boats to Phuket. You can take them but you need several days. I did not think I wanted to sit on a boat that long and I have to meet Jeff in Phuket on the 10th. So I booked a flight from Langkawi to Kuala Lumpur and Kuala Lumpur to Phuket for the 9th. Then I headed for the beach. There are several cool beach bars where you can hang out and get some sun.
The next day, I rented a motorbike and cruised the Island, Langkawi is famous for there cable car to the summit of their tallest mountain. At the top you are 7000 meters above sea level. It was a little cloudy but it was still a great view. On the 9th I got up early for my flights, caught a quick breakfast of Roti and coffee at the 24 hour restaurant and took a cab to the air port.
PS. For those of you that do not work with me, Jeff is a friend from work who is joining me for the rest of the trip.
