Bangkok -> Langkawi / Penang / Kota Bharu -> KL Order

I am travelling from Bangkok and would like to visit (in best order) Langkawi, Penang and the Perhentian Islands (assume via Kota Bharu airport). I then need to get to Kuala Lumpur for return flight.

What is the best way to visit Perhentian Islands from these locations?

I had looked at doing Bangkok to Penang (as direct flight) then to Langkawi, but then there is no direct flight to Perhentian Islands and I would need to go via KL, to then come back to KL for my return flight. Any ideas on the best route for these locations appreciated. Thank you.

I would Bangkok to Penang then asap to Langkawi with Air Asia / Fireflyz or the ferry, then back to Penang, then fly to Kota Bharu (Malaysian or fireflyz) then bus/taxi / ferry over to Perhentians, then ferry / taxi/bus to Kota Bharu to Kuala Lumpur.

pretty dire routing. I would be temped to miss Langkawi or the Perhentians but not do both as you lose too much time doing both.

If you are comfortable flying via Narathiwat, you could do the trip in reverse order.
