The best thing was that the weather is actually nice ! the forecast had told me two weeks of nothing but rain, but I still wanted to see Malaysia ! and it was a good choice, as the weather is good, and the food is good, and the people are nice then all is good !
I found a place to stay in the main kind of backpacker street - Chula pheiI.
The best thing about this place however was the great foods. For me that's more then enough to keep me there. Best thing about traveling is the amazing food, and malaysia seems to be full of it. I had 3 dinners on my first day, and loved every one of them(but I can't remember their names though..). I also loved the bakeries here where they have a lot of like chicken curry and such baked into buns and cakes , pretty cool.
Tonight I will go to this night market to check out if they have something tasty there.
I was supposed to leave for Langkawi today, but could'nt get up...i mean seriously...last boat at 8:30 , it's inhuman !
So i went trailing across the island instead without much of a plan. After an hour on the bus to some beach I wanted to hang out on I met a tourist couple that was going to a national park. that sounded cool enough, so I went there. It was a really nice place with this narrow path stretching through the coastal rainforest. After walking through it for 2 hours I got to a very nice beach called monkey beach...no monkeys though, just dogs(probably ate the monkeys).
I did meet some monkeys in the forest and gave them some of my chips. they seemed to like that....a little too much maybe...as i found myself surrounded by the whole flock just at the time I was running out of chips. They were'nt too happy with that.
Now it's the night market, then Langkawi tomorrow, should be good !
