I know this has taken a while and other stories have gotten in the way but I thought splitting the Malaysia stuff up a bit would make a nice change from last August when you got nothing but Thailand Thailand Thailand from me for about a month.
So, our second Malaysian location was the islands of Langkawi, off the west coast of the mainland and a one hour flight Northwest of KL. The Pelangi Beach resort is one of those hotels where the rooms are built as a "village" of small houses along the beach, with lush, landscaped tropical gardens and lots of palm trees. Each house contained four or eight rooms, depending on its size.
It's hard not to have a great time in a place like this, and I won't bore you with all the luxury of it. Suffice it to say we loved it and returned to Riyadh refreshed, chilled, and thoroughly rested.
And now some piccies...
There's a 30-minute steep uphill trek over rough terrain to get to this waterfall. Minutes after I took this, Abigail slipped on the rock and went in the water up to her chest!
Overall a fantastic holiday which I would recommend to anyone. Great as it was though, my heart still belongs to Thailand.
