On Sunday night, I went to Langkawi with my family. We reached Kuala Perlis jetty 8.15 am and touched Langkawi by 10.30 am. The ferry service is so much relaxing and doesn't make me mabuk laut.

We rented a Nissan Sentra for two days, about RM300 with half tank fuel.

First stop: Underwater World
We visited Underwater World, a must visit for all and Coco Valley next to it.

In Underwater World, you can catch/watch fish through tunnel tank, reptiles section, coral reef and also bird park. Most interesting section is where the penguins live and move around.

It has dozens of duty free shops which sell choc, wine, fragrances, tobacco and luggage bags. The price of can beer is RM 1.80 and RM 48 for 3 litre red wine.

For 1st night we went to Pantai Cenang that looks like Batu Ferringhi, Penang which houses many bars and resorts. Most of the occupants are foreign tourists. Over there you can get cheap clothes and accesories.

The next morning, I get to go Gunung Macinchang where cable car located, but didn't enter (RM 30). The surrounding areas have a selling places. Then to (Pantai Kok), Berjaya Langkawi Beach & Spa Resort, with white sands and beautiful beach.

Not much shopping over here, Langkawi Fair Mall and Langkawi Parade is the only we can go. We also went to Makam Mahsuri (RM 5).
