Hi there, the search function on the forum isn't working for me this evening so apologies if this question has already been asked.
We are wanting to visit Langkawi (for the first time) in early/mid September this year for what will be a much needed 'get away from it all' break, for about 5 days.
We are definitely not interested in water sports (eg: jet skis etc), but do love a walk/relax on a quiet beach, the occasional swim and a glorious sunset. :)
Ideally we'd like a nice pool at our hotel to sit by and swim in, and we would love for the hotel to be near the beach (but know that this may not fit in our budget).
Since it's a 10 day trip (5 days in KL - a bit of shopping and visiting old friends), we are looking at a price range of $50 - $80 per night.
Walking distance to restaurants would be awesome too. From the posts I've read so far (thankyou to the helpful destination experts on here!) it seems that some beaches are noisier/busier than others.
Soooo... in a nutshell, I guess we are after a cheap hotel (with a pool a plus) near a quiet beach, walking distance to shops/restaurants (we plan to hire a scooter so this point is flexible).
All or any advice would be accepted gratefully! Thanks in advance...
btw..., the other destination we have in mind is Boracay. Anyone in the know willing to compare the two?
