Lots of shops and lots of restaurants. I walked a while and settled on a ramshackle place that looked the least smart of the lot! Tom yam soup was a mistake. My god it was hot, I was coughing on the spice but I forced myself to have most of it. Probably why I welcomed in my birthday ...

On our final day in Langkawi, we ...
... there being less than 15 people there, we are guessing it was a massive and very expensive flop. That seems to be the way with everything in Asia, they pump heaps of money into things, it doesn't work so they waste more money on another project doomed to fail.
Dinner was at a Southern Indian restaurant which had the best naan and curry! Although, it did seem as though we were the first westerners to eat there judging by the looks and diligent attention that we were ...
