the two island trip

Short introduction before I continue this post.

Journey starts from:
Melaka - LCTA(Low cost terminal airport), KL- 9.30pm til 11.30pm
KL to Alor Setar 9 hours- 12.00am til 9.30pm

Langkawi Island
(13th- 16th February 2010)

The hotel we stayed in Langkawi

Boarded a ferry to Langkawi. Wasn't nice at all. A tip for those who get sick sick easily. try standing up instead of seating down when riding the ferry.

ok so we reached the island at about 1pm or 2pm-ish. So the first question on our minds were. Where to go?The answer: Whatever is on the way and interesting to look at we shall go. So the first stop was:

Mahsuri Mausoleum

Dinner was nearing so we manage to find this Chinese restaurant called Lucky Restaurant

LOL..so sorry was so hungry, so didn't manage to get a decent picture of the dishes that we had. the steamed fish was awesome!

Next day:Underwater World Langkawi

went for lunch as you can see the shop is located at a junction

After we went to this looking point overlooking the Langkawi airport...

waiting for the plane?

after that, we headed to this place that was said to be the grounds of the burn rice fields
to the marina we went...

mum and dad

it was nice to see all the boats hanging around at the docking area. It's just to expensive to own one though.

next location: Geopark

the view from the cable car

not really a good outing at by the time we reach the top, the sunset was gone and the skybridge was closed =(

dinner at KFC. Juicier+ bigger portions

Dataran Lang

Boarded a much better ferry back to the Kedah jetty. Next stop.....


(16th February til 17th February 2010)

The view from Hotel Grand Continental

We tried heading to Penang Hill but the latest tickets that were sold are for the 830pm slot. So the next best thing was Kek Lok Si Temple.
Kuan Yin under a roof

All those smart China engineers

the awesome food for dinner. The shop is next to Tune Hotel.

ayer hitam assam laksa

Only the brave will eat at such a place as this.

Next morning.

Bukit Bendera/Penang Hill

send my parents to the Bayan Lepas airport

after that it was a 6- 8 hours drive back from Penang to Malacca.
