I've been searching the threads for answers and have got some good info, but I thought I'd ask a few questions in my own thread to see what other expert advice I can get!
I'm flying to Langkawi with a friend for a few days chilling out on the beach.
I'm keen to know the following:
1. I'm guessing Pantai Cenang will be the best option for a mix of beach, food, bars and cheap accommodation - am I correct?
2. Any recommendations for low key accommodation that is friendly and a good place to meet fellow travellers? Not really looking for a real partying place, and I might be a bit beyond sleeping in a dorm. Budget isn't the issue - good atmosphere is most important. Being right by the beach would be a bonus.
3. We're flying out of Penang. I've read on wikitravel that the ferry isn't that exciting, so I'm thinking Firefly might be a quicker option to get to Penang for not much more money. Any thoughts on this?
4. Do you recommend a night in Penang before flying out? We'd be able to travel from Langkawi in the morning to make it to the airport in time to fly out.
Any advice will be gratefully received.
