Malaysia is not among the countries for which tourism plays a major role in the economy. This is a fairly advanced and rich country with a powerful industry, agriculture, extractive industry, so that tourism is not so strongly affects the economy of the country. Therefore, the development of tourism in the country was paid not so much attention.

But in recent years, the situation began seriously to change. It is not surprising for a site with such potential for tourism development. And competitors, neighboring Thailand, Cambodia, and even mini-state, Singapore time to catch up. Because the Ministry of tourism Malaysia is actively engaged in the development of tourism. And the results were not long coming: with every year the number of tourists visiting Malaysia is increasing, including increasing the flow of tourists from Russia.

Today (2012) in the framework of the development of tourism in the country, the government of Malaysia plans to invest in the modernization of the tourism infrastructure of the island of Langkawi and Langkawi 5 billion ringgit, which is approximately 500 billion rubles. According to the forecasts and plans of the government, as a result of the actions of 2 million flow of tourists to date in 2015, expected to grow to 3 million. Whether it will turn out, time will tell, but to date the government plans to develop infrastructure on all Islands of the archipelago Langkawi, where there are hotels. Of course, he will be raised and the island of Langkawi, rich with hotels in the tourist areas and beaches. This will built some new five and four star hotels.

To increase the overall tourist arrivals to Malaysia from abroad in General, the government took the unprecedented step: developed a program of incentives for organizers of Charter flights, which means that the implementation by carriers of certain conditions, they will receive $10 for each passenger. Will also be supported financially and their efforts on advertising of tourist opportunities of Langkawi island.

According to some estimates, Malaysia also hopes to change the tourism policy not only in terms of increasing the number of tourists but also their qualitative composition, namely, to bet on wealthy tourists. Especially for the wealthiest citizens of foreign countries are developing a variety of acquisition programs, one of which, for example, Luxury Elite Club. Under this program, the rich foreign tourists will stay at the special hotels of category "Suite", to walk and to move from place to place in helicopters, to hire luxury limousines and yachts, to use the services of Concierge service. All of these programs, as it sounds funny, part of a massive government project to increase the expenditures of foreign citizens in the country. But budget travelers in this regard, nothing to worry about. Infrastructure development, partly by government, partly by rich tourists, should not create preconditions for the growth of spending budget travelers, but rather may serve to lower prices due to the development of competition and increase opportunities.

As regards specifically the Russians, then new year, Malaysia became for us a little closer. From December 2011 for the first time in the history of Russia and Malaysia joined the regular flights of the company "Transaero", however, unfortunately, the prices of the flights on this route do not offer competitive flights offered by foreign airlines with transfers (no Longer done). Most often, the Russian tourists prefer to holiday in Langkawi and Borneo island, visit the capital Kuala Lumpur. Much less Russians visit the Islands along the East coast of Malaysia is a haven of Redang island, Tioman, Perhentian. Tourists often combine a visit to Malaysia with a stay in Singapore.

In General as far as I understand from your questions, you in KL are not going to stop, and immediately go to Langkawi. I would advise you to look at the tickets: if you pre-buy or wait for sales at AirAsia, it is possible for the price of the route by buses and ferries to reach. ...
