If you are looking for beach activities then you would perhaps be better chosing one of the hotels in the Pantai Cenang area. Lots of different hotels from 5* downwards.

Agree with the advice posted by Lesley. Its (Cenang) a good place to visit for a first time visitor. Shops, restuarants, money changers (best at airport) and agencies (travel etc).

Its a good beach, wide choice of accommodation, plenty of taxi's, and quite close to the airport.

It would be helpful to me if you answer these questions

Which hotel is good in Patai Cenang? (good rooms, good breakfast)

How far at sightseeing places like waterfalls and cable cars?

Is it better to take tours to such places or go on your own?

I'm hoping cabs are easy to find in this area?

Hi doggiesecretsmile

How much are you wanting to pay for a hotel?? In the Cenang area there are quite a few, ranging from 5* downwards.

You can visit the cable car and waterfalls on your own, no need to book a trip. It will mean a taxi or hire car to either. Taxis will be plentiful in the Cenang beach area.

If your on a limited budget then you'll need to go to Pantai Cenang.

If not then go to Datai Bay or Tanjung Rhu.

Cable car, waterfall, Oriental Village ........ 20 mins in a taxi.

Don't book any tours, just get a taxi and ask him to take you.
