Depends on every taxi driver. Negotiating a fare is also a must. Trust me you will find a good fare. I would say 25 Malaysian ringgit.

Help needed with Malaysia Itinerary?

I will reach Malaysia LCC via Air Asia on 8th & have a flight to Langkawi late evening 20:00 on 9th. Again I have to travel to Penang on 11th Afternoon by Ferry & will leave on 12th Morning for Singapore.

Now friends, can you help me fit the best itinerary starting from 8th Morning LCC to 12th Morning Penang Airport. I would love visit mesmerizing locations, have fun and shop a lot. However I would like to give a miss to historical, political & religious places. I don’t mind spending on entertainment but in terms of Hotel & Transport, I like value for money. I will travel by Metro instead of Taxi if comfortable. Similarly I will prefer a 2* Hotel in excellent location over a 4* in so-so one. I was searching the net for the best program, but I guess with your help I might get a shortcut.

So far my program is:
8th Morning, Take early morning Malaysia Tour preferable to Twin Tower revolving restaurant
Check in to a Hotel near Bukt Bintang around noon
Visit all shopping malls till late evening followed by night clubs
Early morning leave for Genting & be back by evening for flight to Langkawi

Please see if I am planning feasible time lines.

Penang Local Boy answers:

I see you have planned well but should miss the revolving restaurant because I think you need a reservation to get in. If you are trying your luck with the casino in Genting, bet on red. In Langkawi, they have a beach called Pantai Cenang. They have a nice choice of chalets there which will fit your budget. Don’t forget Batu Feringgi beach in Penang. Happy holidays.
