Chinese RMB

by asiaminor

hi VTs

just a quick question;
is Chinese RMB convertable on the island?
thanks!!

Re: Chinese RMB

by din2x

Changing Yuan or Reminbi is available in Malaysia at bank, and widely accepted by money changer.

You don't need to change it to US dollar and then change to Ringgit in Malaysia. Just bring your RMB.

My suggestion is, once you arrived in Malaysia, change some at the airport because you will use Ringgit for taxi and etc.

Re: Chinese RMB

by Jannoo

it is but don't think you will get good exchange rate. if you are travelling to west malaysia like KL, my advice is your change at the moeny changing shop. Bank generally have higher exchange rate.

thanks for the replies

i note the advice against using banks, however, it is my experience that in lgk the maybank gives a rate as good, if not better, than monychangers. in particular, the maybank branch in the airport does not load its rates when compared to off-airport branches. so you can change money as soon as you arrive to pay your cab or hire car. in addition, the best deals for car hire in the island are at the airport, and for cash.

That is soo true.

The things about Malaysian money changer, they give a good rate if the currency you are offering are on their "wanted" list. if it is not, the bank would usually give a better rate than money changer, because bank usually followed current market price published.

Travel Tips for Pulau Langkawi

Duty Free!

by nevermy

The honey of Langkawi is that it is a duty free place all over! But still there are differents, for example airport duty free is most expencive,coz they say they are from Kuala-Lumpur duty free devision... Anyhow the best prices are "hiding" somewhere in Kuah Town and Chenang area. Ground Zero party...

spas

by call_me_rhia

All over the island you can find a great number of smaller and larger spas, which do not cost a fortune. You can have:
- all types of massages (swedish, thai, aromaterapy and so on)
- chinese reflexology(painful but good)
- body scrubs and wraps (try the chocolate-coffee scrub)
- coconut milk and flower baths
- manicure and pedicure...
Definitely worth it, and pleasant... you'll come home renewed.

Scuba diving at Pulau Payar Marine Park

by phil_uk_net

I went diving for a day in Langkawi but it was a bit disappointing. No photos I'm afraid as my digital camera had gone wrong. The location was Pulau Payar Marine Park situated in the northern part of the Straits of Malacca, 19 nautical miles south of Langkawi and which encompasses the islands of Pulau Payar, Pulau Lembu, Pulau Segantang and Pulau Kaca.

Considering its location, and the fact that just a little further north in Thailand there is a some great diving, the diving here did not meet expectations. That will teach me to have expectations in the first place!

The first dive was on an artificial reef that looked quite new. The Goodyear Reef, as its name implies, is just a load of tyres that have been sunk for corals to grow on. The coral growth has started but has a way to go yet before the tyres are covered. I saw some large box fish and some carpet-patterned wrasse or groupers among other stuff.

Probably the highlight of the day was lunch. This was on the small island of Pulau Payar where shark feeding on the beach is a daily ritual. Food is taking into the shallows where several small, blacktip reef sharks come in to feed.

The second dive was at Pulau Kaca. This was a real reef at least. I saw pipefish, tuna, barracuda, boxfish and a blue-spotted stingray.

An entry fee of RM5.00 for adults and RM2.50 for children is charged for admission into the marine park which will normally be included in the price of your diving package.

The advertised price for the trip, including transfers and lunch, was 220 Ringgits but I was given a discount of 40 Ringgits straight away without asking. They are so desperate for business after the bombing that everything is on offer. Equipment was provided but it was awful. This was the first time I had not been 'measured up' before the trip for gear. I arrived at the dive site where they looked me up and down and handed over the necessary equipment. It was adequate but I can't say any more than that. Foolishly I did not take my own mask and the one they gave me leaked like hell. It rather spoils the dive when you are clearing your mask every 3 minutes.

Mangrove Swamp Canoe Adventure 1

by moomoos

Peter, the guy in action in the pic below, was our tour guide for this eco-adventure. We went by boat to the fish farm where our canoes were waiting for us. Peter tells us about the history of the ecology in Langkawi. Also about what to expect, tips & warning when we go on our canoes later.

Night Markets

by Popee

Night Markets or Pasar Malam as the local calls it. Most locals will go to do their daily glossaries shopping and marketing. You can buy from hot cooked food, fresh vegetables, fresh meat and clothings. My favorite dish is Ayam Percik (Spicy Barbeque Chicken) and Asam Laksa (Rice Noodles in Spicy Fish Gravy), it will only cost you RM1 to RM2 - Yum! Yum!

The night markets can be found at various villages on different days:
Monday - Ulu Melaka, Tuesday - Kedawang, Wednesday - Kuah, Thursday - Temoyong, Friday - Air Hangat, Saturday - Kuah, Sunday - Padang Masirat
