......So I was informed by a young German tourist, one of a group of 6 or so openly drinking whisky on Cenang Beach a few days ago. This was in response to asking how long they'd been in Malaysia - They'd arrived the previous day from Thailand. Upon mentioning that drinking alcohol and leaving empty bottles scattered around might be frowned upon by the locals."langkawi isn't Malaysia its just for tourists" was the reply and that a destination that charged so much for food and ripped off tourists, unlike Thailand, didn't deserve their respect. Charming!! At least they picked up their rubbish when they left.
