    RFA Centre: World of Perfumes

    by Arfah Written Apr 2, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    It's a perfumes shop. You can find almost all brands of perfumes here. I wouldn't really say they're so cheap...but I noticed most of the perfumes are sold at RM30 less than the usual price...so I guess it's quite worth it to buy perfumes here. For example 50 ml J'dore eu d parfum is sold at RM210...other places... it's like RM240...so there's some discount there...though not much...still worth it.

    A Stall Inside Mahsuri Tomb: Local Snack - "Kuih Peneram"

    by Azri_Azmi Updated Sep 5, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Packed Kuih Peneram @ Mahsuri Tomb

    Makam Mahsuri is a must destination spot for tourist who visited Langkawi. Once you are inside the compound, the stall is just very near to Mahsuri's Well.

    What to buy: Local snack called "Kueh Peneram" is freshly made here and it is the most delicious "Peneram" that I ever had since this snack is also widely being sold all over the Peninsular Malaysia.

    It looks like a doughnut but black in color. I think the ingredients are just flour and sugar. The snack is being fried freshly and you can had it while its hot. I recommend this snack to all visitor who visit Makam Mahsuri whether you are a local or foreigner.

    Everytime I visited Mahsuri Tomb, I will never miss to buy a packet just to eat it while its hot and few packets to bring it home.

    What to pay: RM2.00 per packet

    Hj Shaari is famous for his gamat or sea cucumber business. Hj Shaari a well known traditional medicine practitioner has passed away and now his son is running this business

    If you have any ailment just ask for the traditional medicine remedy. I just bought some gamat lotions.

It is believe that a solution of sea cucumbers can heal cuts, skin eruptions, and ulcers, and claim that it has a beneficial effect on the immune system.

    (too) many shops: buy original...

    gianni armani glasses

    You can buy all sorts of htings in Langkawi... mostly fakes, and about everywhere, including the airport shops. No guarantee for quality, anyway. Not that I care, I don't buy labels (fake or real).

    What to buy: My very favourite (which I did not buy) are Gianni Armani's glasses... a real classic. I have never laughed so much.

    What to pay: However small the price, it's always too expensive for a fake - but it is my opinion only. And anyway, I also believe that originals are too expensive and not worth buying.

    The shop is situated in the heart of Kuah Town. This is my favourite 'Gamat' / Sea Cucumber oil from other shops in Langkawi. Why the oil here is so special? Its because the mixture of the oil with many local plant roots & herbs making it more stronger and effective.

    The product being sold here is not only 'Gamat' but there are varieties of traditional medicine personally made by the owner being offered here.

    They are also runs a budget motel behind the shop with aircondition & tv room.

    All the product is being made at their manufacturing site in KEDA Village, Langkawi.

    What to buy: 1) Gamat oil
    2) King of Wood
    3) Traditional Viagra (Tongkat Ali)

    Billion Duty-Free Department Store: Cheap Langkawi T-shirts

    by fengshui Written Oct 18, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    It is a normal looking department store which sells liquor and chocolates near the left side of front entrance. Then on the other side of front entrance, lots of "Langkawi" themed T-shirts are on sale.
    Further in the store, all sort of products from baby diapers, cough syrup (my kid had a bad cough), household items, etc .... u name it, they have it. Incase u miss out something from your packing list, this is the place - reasonably priced.

    What to buy: We managed to buy Langkawi T-shirts - RM5.00 for Adult (free size) - quite short for my hubby
    RM4.50 for my kids - we chose the biggest size, so that my kids can wear them longer - worth our money! :)

    On the First floor, on your right side of escalator, saw a really nice display shelf made from plastic which looks like glass. It was in a shape of a house with roof and many cubes - Can put all my mini bottles of liquor or mini bottle perfume collection on display and hang in my living room ..... Small one around RM35++ Bigger one RM70++. Problem is we will be having trouble to bring it home ..... so we did not buy it :(

    They were priced RM14.50 each at the airport's "Duty-Free shop".
