    Langkawi Tips

    Post  Sien on Mon Apr 27, 2009 3:39 pm

    Shopping for duty free chocolates in Langkawi, I think is a good place to shop since it is within walking distance from Berjaya Langkawai SPA resort at the Oriental Village Duty Free Shop at the corner infront of the village entrance.

    Btw, anyone knows of a good seafood restaurant with reasonable prices in Langkawi?

    Eating Out in Langkawi

    Try Weng Fung, 26 Kompleks Cayman, Jln Penarak, Kuah. Tel: 04 9666287.

    The other place is not a restaurant but located Lot 180, Pusat Perniagaan Kelana Mas, Kuah. The Stall is called Wonderland Food Store and is quite a favourite amongst the local and also tourists. Only open after about 7pm.

    The other place I like is to dine at the Telaga Harbour outlets. They are reasonably priced. I particularly like the Russian Restaurant. Very nice ambience in the evening and early morning. Razz

    don't, just get taxi

    waste of money.
    i thought I will have a decent car since cars are tax free, but was given a proton saga with broken stereo, 1 setting for aircon ie full blast. some windows didnt work, it broke down once but luckily the island is small, the man came to rescue quickly.

    but driving at night with no head lamps was very exhilarating. couldnt even c my own hands. was tht dark.

    back from langkawi.

    got car (proton saga) at about rm105 per day, quoted online by the famous car rental company.

    at airport, 60% discount etc, come to about RM60-Rm80 per day for proton saga.

    Outside airport, ppl offered rm60 for old wira, rm70 for Myvi....

    So, for long stay, yes, taxi better. Yet, the resort provide free shutter. (but it was available during puasa month.)

    Hi Serene,

    I'll be there in 2 weeks time and have not yet settled the car rental.

    Can you advise which company you booked the car with, and the exact amount you had to pay for it. I don't want to be taken for a ride by them.

    Thanks

    Hi Sien,

    Do you have any idea whether there's any reception for DIGI telco services at the resort? (In particular the BVC allocated rooms)

    I'm hoping there is so that I can get their 3G services and tether to the notebook. Saves the hassle having to go to the reception area for the free internet. (if its even working)

    or anyone has some feedback regarding this?

    Thanks for the assistance.
