Langkawi (11 – 14 May 2014) – Part 1

June 6th, 2014 · 3 Surrendered

Last month, went to Langkawi for a short getaway. Exactly 3 months after I started work. Seriously needed a break and this came at the right time. Flight ticket for return trip was so cheap! Less than RM150 from Air Asia, no check-in luggage. Direct Kuching to Langkawi. Very worth it!


It’s my first trip with this group of friends, we only got to know each other on this trip. Out of 5, I only know 2 of them. All 6 of us on this trip, 3 girls, 3 guys.


We rented a car. You seriously need a car to move around Langkawi or you will have to hire someone to drive to go everywhere. It’s not that hard to drive there, the island is small too.


Views on the way to our motel at Kuah.


Arrived our accommodation but was shocked at first as there’s temple there. Were we in the right place? Is this a staying place or is this a temple? It’s correct. Not wrong. This motel is actually housed in the Hock Kien Kong Huay building. The temple is part of the Hokkien association.

Also, do not expect you’ll be greeted by a receptionist. You had to call the number displayed on the card on the table found there to get someone to come out to process your check-in.


View from our corridor.


The girls got Family Room that could fit 4 while the guys for Triple room. Lucky us hehehe… The 3 big guys had to squeeze in a small room while we 3 tiny girls in a big room ;p For all 6 of us, we split the room rental and each only paid RM100 or RM110 (don’t quite remember) for 3 days without breakfast! So cheap!!

They have water dispenser at the staircase if you need water. This is good enough. Must drink plenty of water while traveling what’s more Langkawi was extremely hot last month!


The shower and toilet are in one, very spacious. Towels are provided. Generally the place is clean enough for the price you’re paying.


After check-in, we went to hunt for lunch.


We went to Langkawi Parade which is not too far from our staying place to hunt for lunch while surveying the prices of the items.


Had beef burger at MC Corner. This is only RM3.80! Super duper filling! The size was bigger than expected. Not a very bad deal. Taste was ok too.


The view of the sea from the carpark. Isn’t it pretty?

Part 2 will come soon *finger crossed*
