    SD Cards, Memory sticks

    by bkarjee Updated Jul 21, 2004

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Luggage and bags: If you wish to travel to Langkawi by the regional budget airlines Air Asia, make sure you dont carry heavy luggage. They dont allow to check in more than 15 kg per person. Hand Baggage allowance is same as other airlines-7 Kg

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Being a warm and humid place, light clothings -those which can easily dry up are preferable for this place. For going around the islands and island hopping, avoid shoes. Chinos would be ideal.

    Toiletries and Medical Supplies: A lot of people had adviced us to carry mosquito repellants, but we didnt come across mosquitoes in the hotel rooms. Sometimes during a jungle trek or while going to waterfalls, we did encounter few mosquitoes, but that's normal. Patches would be sufficient for this.

    Photo Equipment: Memory sticks, SD Cards, spare rechargable batteries for the camera is a must. There are internet kiosks all over the island but they may or may not have CD Writing solutions to copy the images from your Camera Memory sticks, SD Cards to the CD

    Miscellaneous: Carry your driving License if you plant to rent a car

    Buy a filter for your underwater camera!

    Photo Equipment: Remember to buy a good filter for your underwater camera. I forgot and learn it the really hard way, all my underwater shots had a bluish tinge to it. The brilliant colours that I saw underwater exist only in my memories right now...boo hoo....

    a very blue coral garden...sigh..
