Hi

I think this is a fine plan if you are okay with it. The flying time between each of the four places is not more than 2 hours on any sector, ( phuket-langkawi? never heard of this sector before!)

I would however add some more days in phuket and skip out langkawi all together, as it is quite a dull and expensive place compared to phuket. Unless of course you are coming to langkawi only to relax, which you can also in a pool in your hotel/ resort in phuket.

You can do all those activities in Phuket!! At much better rates too.. Bargain hard..

You will not miss anything if you don't go to to Langkawi! There really isn't too much to do there. KL is a more fun place with better food - lots to eat, see and shop!

OR, for 12 nights you can do -

Bangkok 2 nights

Phuket 4 nights

KL 2 nights

Bali 4 nights.

Bali is of course an excellent destination for beach, eating and shopping. 2.5 hours by flight from KL.

You will do your parasailing in Phuket.

I would drop Cameron Highlands on such a short trip. Also not worth heading to Genting unless you are going for the casino as the theme park is closed.

Your plan is very busy, and you waste a lot of time travelling, but if you are happy with it then it is a good one!

Yes drop cameron highlands

are you travelling with kids? whats your budget?

your latest plan is fine - you can spend 1 night in genting from KL - great cable car ride up/ down, and the weather is always pleasant at genting. they also have a small and crowded indoor theme park.

Another option instead of phuket is pattaya. it is cheaper and offers the same 'activities' as phuket. lots of families visit there too. besides, its only 2.5 hours by road from bangkok, so you can save on flights too.

otherwise your latest plan is fine. just keep KL 3 nights and genting 1 night and drop cameron

suggesting dropping cameron so that you could see more of the country and not its roads and buses!! Too much travelling.. genting is fine, skip cameron... the genting cable car goes above the rainforest and through fog so its quite an amazing ride.

Buy the tickets from the official genting counter at the basement of the KL Sentral station.
