URGENT: Anyone back from Redang recently?

Hi there! Am thinking of packing off to Redang in about a week's time. How's the weather by now?

Also, am thinking of adding a short stay at Laguna Redang too, but have heard of the terrible crowds there, jostling for space and the beach. Is it still the case now?

Thanks much!

Beachyogi : )

8 million vehicles on the road over the Raya weekend starting from this Saturday, 19th Sep, so says the NST papers. If its this weekend that you want to go to Redang, you might want to reconsider; everyones on holiday and Redang will be one of the prime holiday spots. After this should be great.

Thanks for your prompt replies. I'm heading there a few days after hari raya so I'm guessing it won't be so bad? have checked with laguna redang-they said they're at 70% occupancy that time i'm heading there.

well, so long as the weather's fine still and the fishes are still around, i'm good to go! : )

anymore advice welcome please!
