|Some of the clouds yesterday. Langkawi is on the left, Kuala Perlis on the right.|
I was worried about accommodation in Kuala Perlis, I couldn't book anywhere online beforehand and the information I could find online was a bit lacking. I got there earlyish in case I had to go up to Kangar for a instead. The Lonely Planet guide has one paragraph on the town and only mentions one hotel (which I couldn't find). I knew there was one hotel in town that was decent on price and cleanliness, called T Hotel, they had a website and it's right across from the ferry terminal. It was on Agoda but I wasn't able to book for the dates I needed. The lonely planet guide mentioned Pens Hotel, but I couldn't find that. There only seemed to be one hotel on the street in the guide and it's far more expensive than what they've quoted.
So I gave up trying to find anywhere else and tried T hotel, and they had a room for 79RM a night with breakfast. Not bad. I was worried I'd have to go up to Kangar to find a room. So I've booked this one for 3 nights to plan my attack into Thailand and to visit Langkawi Island (tomorrow).
Kuala Perlis is apparently famous for the local version of the laksa. I tried it from one place and it was ok, but nothing special. I need to try somewhere else to see if it's better!
And then it was time for sunset...
|Clouds over Langkawi|
|Rainy cloud coming towards me.|
|The Mosque on the waterfront. They were using it but it was still being built. And it wasn't offensively loud like others.|
