Travel time: December 2005 - June 2006  |  by John Davies

Malaysia: Langkawi Island

The paradise island of Langkawi was due to be our last stop in Malaysia. The hotel and beaches in this Muslim community were particularly good, coupled with the fact that beer was tax free equaled only one thing- party time! We chose to hire a car to explore the island, went sea kayaking and trekking to a waterfall. We ended the say watching sunset from the mountain top

The trip
 
Description:
Following masses of preperation my trip of a lifetime was finally a reality. Beginning in the adventurous New Zealand, before taking in delights of Australia over Christmas. Bali was next on the agenda, trading in the comfort of the West for drastic cultural differences of East Asia. The modern city of Singapore next acted as a stepping stone for travel over-land through Malaysia and island-hopping around Thailand. My Adventure finally ended amongst the neon scyscrapers of Hong Kong.
