Travelling for two weeks to Malaysia (Mid July 2015) - Langkwai & Penang Island & Kuala Lumpur  (9 Answers)

Hi Everyone,

I am travelling with my best friend to Malaysia by mid July 2015. We are going to stay for two weeks there.

Our plan is as follows:

- Go to Langkawi Island for 4 days.
- Go to Penang Island for 4 days.
- Go to Kuala Lumpur for the rest of the period.

Please advise top areas & city center name in both Langkwai & Penang. Also the top beach names as we would love to swim in nice beach & to dive as well, also the beach clubs. Thus, we need your help to determine which areas to tackle for our accommodation.

Also, thanks to advise the city center name in Kuala Lumpur and/or which areas best to stay at. As our target is to stay near shopping areas, places to visit or do & the nice restaurants. We can go to clubbing as well.

Plus thanks to inform me about the things which can be done in Kuala Lumpur & where to do it.

Please feel free to advise any other islands (other than Langkwai & Penang) were we can visit & perform in a/b activities.

Thanks all in advance.

Getting around (staying at Berjaya)  (6 Answers)

Hi VTers - it's been a while since I've visited the forums, but I know I can count on the expertise here! I'm staying at the Berjaya Langkawi with my other half for the last week in September (should be a quiet time in Langkawi, I think?). Now, while we were sold on the chalet concept, we really aren't big resort people and want to be able to explore the island and eat out independently. My understanding is that the Berjaya is fairly cut off (except for the Oriental Village which doesn't appeal), so we're wondering how would be best to get out and about.

Is cycling feasible, or is this only suitable for short journeys? Would you recommend car hire? My partner owns a scooter in Italy, but I'm not sure how safe renting one of these is in Malaysia? The last one we rented abroad (Uruguay) came with one-size-fits-all helmets which wouldn't have done very much in a crash.

Many thanks in advance!
