23rd - Well didn't do much, found a lovely cake/coffee shop and we both had pain au raisin and coffee for breakie then on to the beach. Selected the wrong part of the beach.....jet skis everywhere! Wouldn't mind, but there's too many for amount of people on the beach! 4:30, happy hour at Yellow Cafe again. Sat inside because it's been so hot all day. Need to cool off. We met a lovely couple, Paula and Teco from Brazil....hi you two. We laughed because they had to same discussion we did about the 'submarine' .....there's a rock/island not...

Jan 22, 2014 - Rampant Sailing...boat trip

Well, didn't have much sleep last night. The hotel decided in their wisdom, to rent out 5 rooms to CHINESE teenagers! Not a good move. I think they may have a teacher with them? Who knows? Anyway, they arrived back to the hotel at 2:50am shouting, banging on doors and playing musical (not music) rooms. Went outside at around 3am and told them to shut up but obviously, can't sleep then. 4:30am, knocking on doors started. Really cross! Grumbled at reception this morning and again this afternoon when we returned. So, having around 4.5hrs...

Jan 21, 2014 - 20th & 21st January

Well, yesterday we didn't do any more than relax on a couple of sunbeds. We walked right to the other end of the beach and picked up really thin pieces of mother of pearl. Quite obviously, they were shells which have been worn away by the sea water. Unfortunately, although it was cloudy and we went under the umbrella, we got burned...oops! However, we did go for dinner in the Islandish Restaurant and Guy had chicken curry & fried rice and I had half a duck and boiled rice....yum! But, why do they insist on serving rice cold? It's pretty...

Jan 19, 2014 - Langkawi

Arrived yesterday, Saturday. Not very far from the airport; taxi cost 22RM, approx £4.50. Hotel room is very nice, enough room for us, very clean and recently renovated. The shower room is a wet room with floor to ceiling slate, very tasteful. On arrival, we went on an exploration of the near area, found the beach, 2 mins walk, and the Yellow Beach bar where we just happened to arrive during 'happy hour'. Fabulous! Had a couple of beers talked to a couple of people (very young) and then meandered back to our room to change for dinner and...

Holiday in Langkawi

Feb 3, 2013 - Stargazing in langkawi

The people who i met in this journey simply made me realize how friendly and caring they are.Our holiday was something different than the usual island hopping, sea bathing, boat riding and the rest .Me and my wife thought of exploring langkawi by driving around the whole island and getting to know the places that everyday traveler might miss and so we did.We rented a car for three days and when we reached the jetty the car was already there and there was no hassle in running around trying to argue and look for cheap rentals or hires.From...

Holiday in Langkawi

Jan 4, 2013 - Malaysia - 4/1-11/1

& then there were two.... 10/1/13 - Langkawi - Not sure this was on my list of places to come as previously done the best parts of Malaysia but here I am. After the madness of the festive season all I've wanted to do is just shut down & recharge, so here I am in Langkowi for some r & r in a bungalow on the back of a beautiful beach, it's perfect. (Did have a little moan last night though that there wasn't enough life here!) Moving on to Penang in the next couple of days to stay with a friend of a friend & then on to The Philippines at the...

Jun 27, 2012 - Lazing in Langkawi

Well we spent 2 days in our apartment, barely venturing outdoors. It may sound like a waste but we really did just need to get Vietnam out of our systems. We managed to get a late swim in every day, in the resort pool, which is massive and empty most of the time. The footy was good to see even though England lost as usual. We walked around the town, Kuah and went in and out of many ‘supermarkets’ which were just like corner shops, but smelly ones with food so old it wanted to crawl out of the shop. We managed to scrape together some okay...

Jan 10, 2012 - Malaysia - Day 38 - Black Sand Beach

First stop was the Petronas gas station, which had run out of gas! Off we went down the road another two kms to the next gas station to see if they had gas - success! Fueled up and off we went. Drove the motorcycles up to the northern part of the island to a well known beach. beautiful views of the surrounding small islands and the water was pretty. Took our time checking the beach out, hunted for a few shells and found some really cool ones. Jason had taken off his sandals and left them too close to the water, it came up and stole them...

Jan 9, 2012 - Malaysia - Day 37 - Langkawi Island

Changed hotels, the guy we have to deal with here at 'Sweet Inn' is an ass and not sweet at all. They wanted us to check out at 12noon and wait anywhere from 2 to 4 hours before getting into our original booked double rooms. Breakfast this morning was a joke and for them to even think that this is a bonus to be included in the room price is ridiculous. Anywho...we decided to walk over to the 'Rainbow Inn' where Jo is staying to see if there was any availability and there was. The gentleman that runs the place promptly stated that two double...

Jan 8, 2012 - Malaysia - Day 36 - Langkawi Island

We boarded a bus bound for Kepa Perlis at 9am. We arrived at 11:30am, walked to the jetty and bought a ticket for $18 ringgit/pp. Boarded the ferry and enjoyed the ride and sights of the many Islands that make up Langkawi for about an hour and a half. Upon arrival we grabbed a taxi for the four of us that could accommodate all our back packs as well and off we were to Pantai Cenang to the ‘Sweet Inn’ which will be our home for the next three nights. Arrival at the hotel was not as smooth as getting here. We booked our rooms on-line and had...

Nov 25, 2011 - Langkawi lounging

Hello all, we arenow on the fantastic island of Langkawi. Wow what a place. We arrived like a couple of salty sea-dogs on Wednesday morning after a 2 1/2 hours boat trip. We got a room after some haggling with a guy called Daddy at Daddy's Guest House. I suspect he is the owner. After that we went in search of food and the heavens opened on us. A hasty retreat followed by a return in waterproofs, and a big exploration, resulted in some food. The weather looked grim and the days ahead grimmer when a local store owner told us it had rained...
