So it's the big KL today then. Langkawi is good for a weeks holidays perhaps in combination with a couple of weeks at Penang or visa versa. Islands in this part of the world are generally more expensive than mainland destinations ( except Penang), I don't know why exactly but I'm sure the lure of the tourist dollar could be a major reason. 3 days on Langkawi was enough to get an appreciation of the place, its culture and people. A good beach holiday for sun worshippers, whilst the more active tourist can trek through forests, climb hills and get quite close to nature. The people are good natured, generally, no arrogance was detected during those few days. Smile, and they always smile back. Kids wave from the distance, wave back and smile, this happens frequently here - its nice that European arrogance hasn't rubbed off here like it has in the Thai Islands, according to various Internet forums that is.
Its a smooth touchdown at KLIA. Reminds me of my first solo landing, the best I had ever done. Air Asia have their own terminal at KL, and it's big, well, looks it from here as the plane taxis for a good 10 minutes to the far end stand. And here we are then in the big KL, capital city of Malaysia.
Air Asia have their own buses, back and forth every 15 minutes. The bus is booked and payed for same time as the e-ticket which takes the hassle out of finding the right downtown bus, and avoids the taxi touts.
