    Langkawi FTW.

    A lot of unknown in Thailand right now. Even the international airport can close shop.

    Besides drinking,tanning, shopping,eating seafood, renting jeeps or motorbikes, shooting is one of the things to do over there.

    My uncles and dad encouraged me to have a go at the range cos i never went through NS so the range is my best chance of testing a pistol. However i was too weak to pull the trigger with one finger!

    So if the airport closes, stay for a few more days, what is th big deal?

    Btw, of course, Phuket if you want to have fun.

    Time to get back to work after the holidays.

    Many of the tourists weren't happy when the airport close shop and no other alternatives to go back home.

    Phuket might be more "exotic" but Langkawi is a gem too.

    Self drive is a breeze in a rented Wira for around RM120-140 (not including petrol) per day.
    Easy to drive, easy to navigate and many eatery along the roads. Just stop anyway u want.

    Check out their various "historical" sites, drive up their highest peak for the "Genting" experience and their huge eagle monument etc. Typical tourist sites but it is the things u do on a holiday.

    You got to do the island hopping trip to visit the eagle sanctuary and swim in the "Pregnant Lady" island's fresh water lake in the middle of the sea! Rem the long lens for swooping eagles!

    I would avoid Thailand for now imo

    Don't forget Boracay in Philippines. Awesome beach, S$1 San Miguels (even from Hotel room minibar), and lesser crowd.

    I was at Langkawi during June '08 and i rented Kancil for RM 40 per day only. Why would a Wira be RM120?

    Good food, fun, shopping.
    Want to go parasailing? Do it.
    I don't think MLY hotel hospitality can beat Thai hotel hospitality.
