Penang and Langkawi

Jump to last reply

Tentatively planning a trip to Malaysia for a couple of weeks, late this year. At the moment, I'm thinking of just visiting KL and Penang plus Singapore for a few days. In Penang, we'll stay in Georgetown and possibly a few days in Batu Ferringhi as would also like some beach time and would like to visit the National Park. I've read some somewhat negative feedback about the Penang beaches and so am considering a few days on Langkawi. Although we want some time at a beautiful beach, we are not ones to sit on the beach all day. We'd take the ferry between Penang and Langkawi. Any thoughts on the relative merits of Penang or Langkawi for beautiful beaches? And for Langkawi, which town is your favourite (we won't be staying in one of the very upmarket resorts). Would appreciate your opinion. Thanks!
