Best of Fun at Langkawi and Penang

Langkawi and Penang, these two names conjure up images of endless miles of white sandy beaches surrounded by the clear blue waters of the Andaman Sea. Considered to be the top spots for a sea-side getaway in Malaysia, most visitors booking tickets onboard international flights landing in the country ensure that they visit at least one and if possible both these tropical getaways. 

Both of these must visit places are served by international airports that handle international flights of many global airlines and are therefore easy to reach. Langkawi is actually the shortened form of Pulau Langkawi, the largest of the inhabited islands of the archipelago located just of the mainland. The island of Penang is a highly industrialized area and is part of the state of Penang in Malaysia; hence holidaymakers and business people are equally responsible for driving up the demand for air tickets to this getaway.

Being located by the sea, both Langkawi and Penang offer its visitors a wide range of water sporting activities. Malaysia has long been a divers’ paradise and such is its popularity that divers from round the world book airline tickets to the country in search of the perfect dive off Malaysia’s coast. Snorkelling is also popular in the area and numerous operators at Langkawi and Penang provide lessons as well as gear to foreign tourists interested in the activity. Other sports commonly available to holiday makers and adrenaline junkies from all over the world include parasailing flights, jet boat rides, water boarding as well as sail boating.

Back on the pristine sandy shores, sunbathing and sipping on refreshing drinks is the relaxation choice that leaves holidaymakers gloating about their decision to purchase tickets on flights that reach these top destinations of Malaysia. Those who are a bit more active can participate in the many beach volleyball and beach football games that happen almost every hour. Holidaymakers seeking thrill on wheels should try out beach bugging for a wild ride on the specially designed all terrain vehicles.
