Heidi and I have just finalised plans for our next holiday.
We originally planned to go the US (including a week-long stay at a dude ranch), but then decided that we’d rather have a short relaxing journey somewhere nearby (leaving visiting the US until we have at least a couple of few months free).
Given that we’ve seen a lot of Thailand and Singapore this year, we figured that we’d try somewhere new in South-east Asia. Bali was an early consideration, but we were concerned about how touristy it is meant to be, and about the possibility of a dengue fever outbreak. So we opted for Langkawi instead.
It took a few days of planning (tripadvisor and Wikitravel were invaluable), but I feel that we’ve put together a great holiday for a reasonable budget. It includes: boutique resorts, wooden villas, kelongs, a few days in Kuala Lumpur, full-recline airplane seats, and a whole bunch of cats.
Kelongs at the Langkawi Lagoon Resort:
Add good food to all of the above, and I’m really looking forward to it! 😀
