Russian Tourists

Hi I was talking to friends back from a holiday in Egypt and they said that a lot of the Russians have stopped going there as they don't have as much money now.I was just wondering if it was the same in Langkawi as there were quite a few in our hotel when we were last there.Thanks for any answers.

Hi

Not sure about that one!

There were a few at Berjaya earlier this year. In fact, a whole party of them who just took over everywhere, especially the bar ;o( Can't really say if there were many in Cenang.

We've had Russian guests staying near to us at Rainbow during our last few visits. But also we've seen a lot more Eastern Europeans from Poland and Czech Republic visiting Langkawi.

From our side trip to Vietnam this year, I would say that most of Moscow seemed to be staying in Nha Trang. Bars and cafes are trying to attract Russian package tourists eg. Most will automatically give you a Russian menu

Dear Bobbiejean,

in any case Malaysia is now a very cheap destination for many foreign currencies as the Ringgit is very low now.
