Just got back from Malaysia, and held on Laraque three days. I did not say that there is very expensive. Yes, hotels of similar quality level 20% more expensive than in Kuala Lumpur or George town (in Penang), but otherwise not much of a difference noticed. To eat in the café-restaurant is the same. Cigarettes, booze, much cheaper because the duty free zone. So "welcome" in Langkawi! ...

You know Lena, so let's be more specific. You can stay in the Guesthouse for 19 ringgit from the head (about 190 rubles), as in the photo, but you can for 1000 ringit in a five star hotel. The spread is huge.
I here, for example, Sweet Inn Motel for the 800R. for two with Breakfast is arranged. Quiet, clean, air conditioned and cheap. But the hotel only for sleep, no pool. You may not arrange. Better go here https://nashaplaneta.net/asia/malaysia/ ... iaji-oteli and
using the search search and read the reviews there. Prices when booking online in advance will be cheaper than on the spot. The same Sweet inn motel when we were there for the 800R. when booking through the website, at the reception for 950 surrendered. Only the date is already set for March, since most of the hotels are already booked. On the 3rd of Feb just watched: 147 hotels found in Langkawi, is available 40. In both!
Well, if more specific questions you have, please contact feel free.

admin 03 Oct 2017, 04:50
If possible, it is necessary, but not necessarily. We are in may two years ago quietly came and bought on the spot for hours before sending, the ferry was half empty? but it all depends on the season and how lucky, as indeed in any other country and place. So if there is the opportunity to pre - buy.
