Langkawi with teen

Thinking of travelling for a week with my 19 year old daughter in January. we love warm weather nice warm beach with clear waters and nice safe hotel near lots of restaurants. And shopping. Looking at spending Around $100 aud dollar per night ??? Is Langkawi going to be the place to be or should we look at other places in Malaysia ???

Yes you can. East Marine Divers or Langkawi Coral are the most popular. It is a full day trip to Pulau Payar and quite expensive so do read the reviews prior to booking.

Dear Darkiel,

the clearest water indeed is the pool.

As your daughter is 19 years you might like to have options in your vecinity for shopping and food and beverage so Cenang or Tengah would be my choice for. Apart from many other option Holiday Villa, La PariPari Maibest and similar hotels would fit your budget. Ambong Ambong is cheaper and charming but not smash on the beach.

Just to start your research, the list can be endless..

Hi darkiel,

Lovely place Warrnambool, been there often. Not an Island holiday , but I can recommend KL as a good destination. Hotels are great value there, some great hotels with pools so plenty of swimming. Big shopping Malls as well as more local type of shopping and endless amount of dining options. I would not recommend KL usually on the Langkawi Forum with the great DEs , Steady and Eva , but you asked about other areas of Malaysia , so I know they will forgive me 😀
