Hi All...we are a family of 6 (including 2 kids of 10 & 11yrs old)looking to stay in Langkawi for a week in Dec. Have not decided where to stay. On one hand we would love to stay at the private resorts with the pools and view...but we also love to explore the shops and restaurants(obviously cheaper options lol). The private resorts I reckon would be far away from the local areas.(hopefully, theres complimentary shuttle buses etc) Headache! Appreciate the kind advice.
