My sister and I are going on holidays over Christmas (leaving Christmas day). Just need to decide where! We would like to go to KL as we have not been before, and thought we'd hit a beach for a week too. I've been to Penang before, so thought we'd give Langkawi a go. My only concern is being hotel bound. What I mean is in Penang we would hang by the pool all day and then in the evening go to the night markets and hawker stalls for dinner. Is there something like this in Langkawi? I don't want to be stuck eating at the hotel every night. Are there market stalls, hawker stalls etc and if so, where is the best place to stay for this?
