Langkawi - how does it compare to Penang ?

We went to Penang last year and stayed at the Shangi-La Golden Sands. We were disappointed with the hotel as it was quite run down but loved the food outside of the hotel.

We are thinking of going to Langkawi in July and were wondering how it compares to Penang. Is the food as cheap and as good ? We are trying to decide between the Pelangi Beach or Sheraton Langkawi if anyone has any comments.

On the move !

Its easier to eat outside the hotel if you stay at Pelangi, you don't need a car. You will at the Sheraton.

The food on Langkawi is nowhere near as good as what is available on Penang. All the best food on Langkawi is in the resorts, outside it is basic to say the least.

If food is a priority then you need to revisit Penang.
