My family will be in Malaysia for 16 days Dec-Jan and one of our planned destinations is Langkawi (along with Kuala Lumpur and Singapore). We've narrowed our hotel search down to a couple hotels in Pantai Cenang, but we're starting to wonder if the beach is worth it compared to beaches along the Great Ocean Road that we have in Australia, especially because the prices for a decent hotel seem quite expensive.
Should we perhaps stick to Penang, Kuala Lumpur, Malacca and Singapore instead of Langkawi? Thank you for your advice! :)
