Langkawi Trip Day 1 with the course mates

3 years of studies in University of Malaya with the talented music students has come to an end. The last time we had an outing this big was our Sunway Lagoon trip. Continue reading to know what we fresh graduates did in Langkawi island for 3 Days 2 Nights ;) Photo credits to its rightful owners :)

The talented music students class of 2015. Missing 7 who couldn't make it.

28th of June 2015
Waiting for 3pm flight At KLIA2
AirAsia flight tickets (KLIA2 <=> Langkawi) + Skybus (KL Sentral <=> KLIA2) cost me around RM 127. Rather reasonable. Most of my course mates got a slightly cheaper rate as I couldn't confirm my trip until later. Do keep an eye out for cheap rates AirAsia offers from time to time :)



We rented two 8-seater cars (Toyota avanza and Innova) for 2.5 days. Each day costs RM 120. Just nice to fit 15 of us and it's much easier to go places in a group like ours. For Island hopping (in day 2) + car + petrol, we paid RM86.50 per person.


Chilling in the apartment
We checked in at Adina Apartments. 13 of us stayed in the 3-room apartment while 2 other girls in a separate room. Those stayed in the apartment paid about RM69 for 2 nights of stay *go budget travel!*. I wrote a review on TripAdvisor and you can check it out *HERE* :)




Orkid Ria Seafood Restaurant


We walked to Orkid Ria Seafood Restaurant for dinner. Rather pricey, not delicious and not too filling.

Activities for the night:
Played mafia with the group and drank! Thanks to duty free shopping in Langkawi, you can get Somersby Apple Cider for RM4.90, Hoegarden bottled beer for *I forgot how much but confirm less than RM5!*. The cheapest Apple cider I can get in PJ is in Picccadilly for RM10 per bottle. The price difference was just WOW. 



Then a few of us went out and walked along the shops at Cenang. I bought flowy elephants-printed long pajama pants for RM15 each, one for sis and for me ^_^ 
Then back to Adina for a midnight swim! 
Thanks Wei Tang for the shot and for accompanying me.
