We were fortunate enough to experience two different resorts during our week-long visit to Langkawi. Langkawi is made up of a cluster of 99 islands, which are all part of the UNESCO World Geopark as of 2007. The first few nights we were at the Meritus Pelangi and our last few nights we had the pleasure of experiencing something a bit different. We stayed at the Berjaya Langkawi Resort in a rainforest! Who wouldn’t want to stay in a tropical rainforest right?
As we have spent the past several months exploring Southeast Asia, we kept hearing people mention how beautiful it was in Langkawi, Malaysia. If at all possible, we were going to try to make it to this island to test it out on our own. After spending over a month in Southern Thailand it was time to make our move to Malaysia.
I originally planned to take the ferry from Phuket, Thailand to Langkawi, Malaysia. After some thought, I realized the family just wasn’t going to be up for a full day on the ferry and we found extremely inexpensive flights from Krabi to Penang. A new plan was hatched based on the deals we found. I know you are wondering, “So how did you get to Langkawi?”
After a wonderful 5 weeks in Southern Thailand, including a family vacation, it was time to move on to a new country. This was to be a weekend of milestones. Alan and I were celebrating our 18th wedding anniversary and Lars and Anya were heading to country number 25. Hello Malaysia!
So far I have traveled to 50+ countries in my lifetime and I have to say, I fell in love with the nature and beauty in Langkawi, Malaysia. I am almost hesitant to tell you about it, as I don’t want tourism to spoil what we have experienced.
At the same time I wish you could all see this place. I know I have more of the world to see, but Langkawi Malaysia ranks very high for us. Come with us as we show you our guide to Langkawi, and check out all of the fun things to do in Langkawi with kids. Continue reading
Legoland is located in the southern most region of Malaysia in Johor Bahru. If you want to get from Singapore or Kuala Lumpur to Legoland Malaysia, you are in the right place. We share with you many easily access to Legoland Malaysia from either location. You can make it a day trip or stay for a while at the Legoland Malaysia Hotel.
We had a great time visiting the LEGOLAND Kuala Lumpur Hotel and Resort, but it is actually in Johor Bahru Malaysia. We thought we would share some info with you to make your visit more enjoyable.
We know Thailand is a very popular destination in Asia, but don’t forget about Malaysia. This country offers many attractions: from nature, culture, modern city, to savory culinary. It has a lot of spots that appealing to be explored. Check out our posts on Kuala Lumpur and Legoland.
After spending a little more than 7 months exploring Thailand, Laos, Vietnam, Cambodia, it was time to head south to Malaysia. We spent nearly 2 months in Malaysia and stayed in all types of accommodation, hotels, hostels, apartments, and homes. We were also scoping this area out as a potential long-term residence, in the future. This was the last couple of months in our Southeast Asia tour, so we were a bit tired of moving fast and were looking for a few options to help slow us down. We also spent 2 nights in Singapore, which we will include at the end.
This is our first amusement park in Southeast Asia, and we were all excited to go to LEGOLAND Malaysia! I’d always heard great things about Legoland in general, and as a fan of Legos, this turned out to be a lot of fun.
