Hi

You have just about covered everything with your itinerary and as Fave Hotel is in Pantai Cenang, you can easily walk to Underwater World but you will need transport to the other places.

thanks lesley.. do we get pure vegetarian foods in FatCupid, Privilege and La Sal? Since we have planned for island hopping is it a worth experience for snorkeling? is there a possibility that by March the sky bridge is open for public?

Hi

There are lots of places on the island where you can get vegetarian food but in any of the smaller restaurants you will have to stress that you are pure vegetarian.

You can try snorkelling on the island hopping trip but I doubt you will see very much. For any proper snorkelling/diving you will need to take a full day trip to Pulau Payar and you are only away for 3 days.

I do not imagine the skybridge will be open any time soon but the cable car is the better option.

as i understand it, by 'pure veg' you are looking for Jain food. sadly, that is not so easy to find outside the 5 star hotels.

perhaps some previous travellers will be able to help. but i doubt that privilege or fat cupid provide Jain food.

in that case - most of the restaurants on pantai cenang will be able to serve you. just be very specific about your needs when ordering.

Hi

Fave is a fairly new hotel and quite central to lots of restaurants and shops. If you are happy with the reviews you have read then it will be ok.

Enjoy

Thanks. Can you also suggest where to shop and what can be bought? heard goods purchased are tax exempted
