Langkawi Weather

Hi All!

Thinking about taking a couple of weeks in Langkawi mid July as we are in Malaysia from the beginning of July and want a nice holiday type of stay before embarking on 5 months of travel!

I was wondering what peoples thoughts were on the weather? I'm not so bothered about the rainfall, from what I read a couple of hours a day is welcome in the heat and that I do not mind. Is the rest of the time sunny as I've heard it can get overcast?

Weather in December should be hot and sunny but the island will be very busy at that time. It is peak season then.

Sorry sue - we got busy! I get my money thru a 28 degrees card which is aligned to the xe exchange rate with no international fees. My husband says he got 2.81 the other day in Penang.

We had a total downpour again this morning but it cleared after lunch. Yesterday was good but overcast. It has been a a shame but it happens.

Dear Means,

the rate is bout 3 to one. Most people change money here. There are several money changers and banks around. No problems or worries here. I would not bring too much cash as we have plenty of ATMs

Weather right now is not bad at all! Maybe some 2 hours of rain, plenty of sun, not too hot. In other words I love it.
