We enjoyed ourselves very much. It was a quiet holiday for us to de-stress of course so we didnt do too much!
We hired a car for a day, a proton wira, air-cond, automatic RM70. Boy, wasn't it scratched when we got it! Out comes the camera for some snap shots just in case. Seems like a lot of people in Langkawi and KL love to have scratched & dented cars, seems to be norm.*shocked*
Rewind back: We decided to rent the car from the airport since we read somewhere that the cars there were newer. Around 4pm, we took a cab from the hotel to the airport. Walked all over the airport, now where was the car hire that we saw when we arrived? they have all disappeared! A guy came up and signalled us to follow him, follow him we did... back through the custom (there was a custom officer there who let us thru)!!! The car hire was just outside the baggage collection, aha that was where we first saw it. Now I havent come across another airport that lets you back through the custom and on a different day. LOL. wink wink. Get my drift? I am not going into details on this one!
The day with the car:
The cable car was closed when we got there, maybe due to the rain. Stayed most of the time at the Pelangi resort, the pool which was great. Kuah town was uneventful, take it or leave it I say, bought a bag pack there. It was overcast most days, thats the way we like it. We still got burned though.
Meals and the sea:
Best meal for us: the BBQ dinner at the Pelangi and the Garden Beach Restaurant next door. Lunch at the Andaman was good, a tad expensive but we were right in the midst of rainforest and secluded beach and it was raining, I know it sounds bizarre, but it was nice experience!!! Never experienced this before. Big rain drops out of leaves onto our cafe table (but not enough to wet us) and hearing the rush of waves. Devine!
A go away present:
Have to say, I got bitten quite a bit by mosquitoes, not sure it happened in KL or Langkawi. At least, one could say I brought back some souvenier :(!
