We went from Penang to Langkawi and it just feels so unorganised and hectic. The actual journey itself isn't too bad, really. It's an extremely boring journey and I don't like how crammed in I felt, but if you take a book and are lucky...More

And if you still take the ferry, buy sea sickness medication in any George Town pharmacy. Because otherwise you will, like most other passengers, throw up. 100% guaranteed. I took the 0830 AM ferry from Penang to Langkawi today. I bought anti sickness medication in...More

If you get travel sickness suggest you avoid this trip. Thankfully We chose to go on the early trip to try and avoid the crowds. It takes three hours and it is a bit claustrophobic as you can’t open windows or go outside.
