Hi everyone :)
I'm going to Langkawi for three nights in September, as part of a 5 week backpacking holiday. We are coming from Penang, so would the boat into Kuah jetty be the best option in terms of price and ease?
Also, I have seen that travelling about the island via public transport isn't that easy, so would it best best to hire a car / most likely a scooter? We both have driving licenses. How much would this cost?
I am also only booking hostels in places where I definitely want to stay, i.e. a certain hotel in the Cameron Highlands, and a place on the river in Borneo. Is it best to just have a wander and turn up to a place in Langkawi, or do fellow backpackers recommend booking in advance, as I also haven't seen many advertised on websites. I am looking to stay in Pantai Cenang.
How have peple gone about island hopping? Is there a particular tour company one has gone with that has been really good?
AND FINALLY! We will be flying from Langkawi airport to Kota Kinabalu, is it best to take a taxi here after dropping off the scooter we will hopefully get!
Thank you in advance! x
