Langkawi Conference Trip 13-16 November 2012

The first time i been to Langkawi was in 2005. If not because of the conference, i don't think i have any chances to visit Langkawi again after seven years. 

In overall, it's a beautiful island and i rented a car this time to explore the island by myself. At first i wanted to rent a smallest car but it was out of stock due to the public holidays. Therefore, i ended up with a Honda Civic which is too big and luxury for a solo traveller like me... haha. 

The only thing that put me down is the price of the goods in Langkawi. I was expected 'duty free' prices for all the goods in Langkawi but at last i realised that only alcohol, cigarettes and chocolate are under the category of 'duty free'. Frankly, some perfumes are even more expensive than the retail shops outside Langkawi. 

Anyway, these are the photos taken along the trip.    

At the Eagle Square!!!
