Langkawi

Langkawi is an archipelago of 99 islands in the Andaman Sea, some 30 km off the mainland coast of northwestern Malaysia. The islands are a part of Malaysia’s Kedah state, but are adjacent to the Thai border. By far the largest of the islands is the eponymous Pulau Langkawi with a population of about 45,000. The island is a declared duty-free zone.

The peak season is from December to March when moonson at the eastcoast shuts down most of the Islands there (Perhentian etc.). This makes Langkawi a good island alternative during that time period. Generally though, Langkawi can be visited all year around.

Gunung Mulu National Park

The Gunung Mulu National Park in Borneo (near Miri) is a UNESCO World Heritage Site with caves and karst formations. The caves are home to over 5 million bats who exit the caves in search for food every evening in a spectacular way.

Kenanga Wholesale City (official website)


Even though Kenanga is a wholesale shopping mall, most shops also sell retail. Some shops are however wholesale only from Monday to Friday. So it is best to come here on the weekend. Overall you can find some of the cheapest prices for things like handbags, women's fashion, accessories and shoes in KL. Since it is a wholesale mall, the more items you buy, the better the price. Almost all shops cater to products for women.
