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.

Besides the cinema, the best reason to come here is to visit the Food Republic. It's a huge food court on Level 1 (don't get confused the ground floor at the Pavilion is marked as Level 3), so it's an underground floor. The variety of food is overwhelming. It's a good place to taste the different flavours of Malaysia and South-East Asia.

The Pavilion is located at the eastern end of Jalan Bukit Bintang, just across the posh Star Hill Gallery and Marriot Hotel.
