Open air onboard on my third crossing between Penang and Langkawi was the best feature of the 3 hour journey. The catamaran has tinted windows, tv blaring at full and smell of stale gasoline, so even standing and sitting outside on the deck through the...More

Ferry was pretty full but no problems with luggage in aisles etc. Had window seat which made arriving in Langkawi seeing the outlying islands interesting.
