#Travelpost: Day 1 at Beautiful Sunset at Cenang Beach at DUTY FREE LANGKAWI




During the recent Matta Fair which happen over the weekend we stumble upon this holiday package to Langkawi which seems to be affordable - 16th to 18th March 2018, we bought a Family Package to Langkawi from Anytime Holiday SDN BHD. It's a package for 10pax which includes
  • accomodation for 3 days 2 nights ( 3 bedroom apartment)
  • Car rental (10 pax Van)
  • Island hopping for 10 pax
at ONLY RM1699!

p/s: This is not a paid blog :)

We decided to take advantage of the school holiday in March to visit Langkawi. As the package that we bought did not cover our transfer to the jetty, we decided to drive up to Kuala Perlis Jetty which took us almost 5 hours and 30 minutes from Kuala Lumpur. It's a rather smooth drive up north fortunately as we were expecting some traffic due to the holidays.

Parked our car around the parking lots around the Jetty area. There will be local agents who rides around with their motorcycles to usher you to their designated space. The standard parking rate there is RM10/ day which I think it's pretty reasonable.


So we bought the ticket for the ferry from Kuala Perlis Jetty to Langkawi which departs at 1pm. The journey took us 1 hour and 15 minutes. The journey is pretty comfortable as there were allocated seat number upon purchasing the ticket. So you do not have to worry if you'll be getting yourself a seat for the journey!

Here's some of "How to get to Langkawi' information for you:

Of course! One of the thing that Langkawi boast about it's the DUTY FREE ALCOHOL, CIGARETTES & CHOCOLATES. So, if you're intent of carting some of those, this is the place you'd want to be! Please be note that there will be lots of duty free shops all around Langkawi and the price may fluctuate a little from shop to shop. I personally stayed near this duty free shop - Toew Soon Huat Duty Free (TSH DUTY FREE) which I find the prices there are very reasonable and a great place to do your shopping there.







After shopping around at TSH Duty Free, to stock our chocolates and alcohol for the next 2 nights, we went home to rest before going out at night to Pantai Cenang for dinner. Oh by the way, we got pretty cozy and comfortable apartment for the next 2 night that's enough for 10 pax @ Century Suria Apartment.

(Sorry I didnt managed to get a picture of our apartment!!)


Upon reaching Pantai Cenang, we decided to stroll around at the beach to enjoy the sunset before heading for dinner.


Look at that wonderful Sunset scenery here at Pantai Cenang. Grab a drink or dine along the restaurants here at this beach while enjoy this panoramic view of the beach. Later on, as we were walking around the beach looking for a place for dinner, we stumbled upon this chinese restaurant who seems like there's quite a few occupied tables and we thought we should give it a try.


Claypot Assorted Seafood




Deep Fried Squid

"Kam Heong" Lala

Stir-fried Deer Meat

All in all, we were pretty disappointed with the food there as it was just mediocre. The dishes there was rather bland and not very tasty despite the various different types of dishes. I personally wouldn't recommend this place if you're looking for some good Chinese style cooking meal :( 

We went home after dinner and get some rest before the next day where we will be doing "Island Hopping"
