So strange they would do that in a MUSLIM country. Take your bigotry elsewhere please
Listen to yourself...
It's not just Muslims that live in Malaysia you know and yet, you claim it as a "Muslim Country".
You claim bigotry when I comment on nutty business decision based on religious dogmas that are adversely affecting the tourist business of Langkawi island - businesses that are for the most part owned and operated by the Chinese community.
Perhaps you would do well to learn a little about how that social structure of Malaysia operates before playing the butt-hurt little snowflake.
The government is largely run by Muslim Malays who set rules to suit themselves, the Chinese run the businesses and the Indians (mainly Tamils) largely get the butt end of it and end up doing the unskilled work for low pay. This is of course, a gross oversimplification and there is some mixing but on the whole it's true.
Having one group within any society imposing it's values on everybody else is generally a bad thing and in Malaysia where that imposition takes the form of ever increasing taxes on alcohol and ever more restrictive zoning laws, those values are literally killing an entire sector of the economy.
I've visited the country perhaps a dozen times but it's now getting so bad that I'm in no hurry to go back.
You can try to make yourself sound as clever as you like but the bottom line is I lived in the Muslim country of Maylasia for 4 years plus. So trying to make it sound any different to what I've seen and experienced won't cut it. Your a bigot.
Think I need to correct this - Malaysia is not a Muslim country (despite what the religious authorities there are trying to claim). It's a secular country and was created as such. There have been numerous articles and statements on the matter by legal experts there.

Any hints on good places to eat / drink / to do. We are at frangipani in June.
You're a little way south of the main town of Pantai Cenang but easily within walking distance. There's an Irish themed pub that sells stout as well as local beers that's at the south end of the town. There are several nice seafood restaurants in town as well as the usual fast food chains in the main shopping mall.
By June, the risk of stingers should have diminished but make sure you check with a local that you trust before going in the sea and always have vinegar on hand. Other than the stinger issue, the beech is shallow and safe.
At the north end of town, there is a big Malay food centre where the food is good and cheap but not fancy and the whole of the north end is subject to zoning laws that make it hard to get a beer with your meal.
Your hotel is virtually next door to a couple of activity centres and there are plenty of watersports. I fishing is your thing, I have to say it's not great. There is a run of sailfish through the area but the season isn't until Sept - Oct.
Thanks for that. Can't wait. Are there any night markets?
We are in KL for few days then Sarawak before Langkawi. All the write ups mention the great local food stalls in these areas.
Petaling Street is one of the only night markets around the city centre (though us Malaysians know it more as a pirated goods market than a night market.....). However, since you're heading to Malaysia in June during the fasting month, there'll be roadside stalls in many places serving food and stuff for the Malays to break fast. You're probably heading at the best time but best be mindful of eating in public while others are fasting - it's seen as rude to do so.

In KL, Low Yat Plaza is the biggest tech-focused shopping mall available to you and has various floors dedicated to specific areas of tech - like mobile devices, sat navs, computer hardware.

In Sarawak, the lobster noodles are popular there (because it is frightfully expensive on the mainland). Check out the cultural village while you're there for a slightly different experience.

Beautiful place but there is a box Jellyfish problem on the beach and the nutty Muslim planners have driven out most of the businesses that sell alcohol and caused prices to rocket. Langkawi's tax free status used to mean that you could go out and have lunch in a little family restaurant with a couple of beers for cheap but the puritanical idiots have ruined all that.These tickets are great value but would be best used to fly to Langkawi immediately prior to hopping on a ferry to Satun in Thailand and from there to somewhere a bit more tourist friendly like Ko Lanta.
Don't really think your comment about nutty Muslims is appropriate.
Malaysia is a Muslim country Dubai is a Muslim country most of these beautiful places in the east are all Muslim countries with full of lovely people who welcome all nations. You want hot weather, cheap drinks and food in Muslim countries yet call them idiots and nutty. Think before you speak...

As a Malaysian myself, Baldieman has a point. There have been increasing amounts of complaints locally over the past few years about some of the decisions made by politicians and religious authorities. Think they were the people being referred to rather than the >70% Muslim population of Malaysia. Can't speak of the actual experience in Langkawi currently but this was very likely what Baldie was referring to - http://www.thestar.com.my/news/nation/2016/07/23/langkawi-mp-seeks-to-defer-ciggies-and-liquor-ruling-new-measures-allow-only-18-stores-to-sell-duty/



Hi and thanks for that. We are going to meet my wife's family who she has never met before. They have our itinerary sorted in Sarawak as I do believe there's a festival on in first week of June. Looking forward to that. Second week is going be spent on Langkawi

If people are queuing up two days in advance for a £250 discount then they truly are mental. It would be considerably less effort to earn the extra £250.
if they get a return ticket for £49 to Thailand, thats a much bigger saving than £250. normal price is around £400-500.

Sub £300 for a while now with KLM!


klm.com site says £343, which is still pretty great.

but where are you seeing sub £300?

Any cheap flights in jan 2017??
Yep a lot of the dive people are working there on tourist visas and visa runs over the border.

I know many who have made it work for 20 years and counting
Yep I prefer the north of Thailand to the south.
Love Chiang Mai to bits.
mikesloper
Believe it or not but replying to your comment is not my number one priority. Firstly Chiang Mai is half the price for rent/food/services as Bangkok. If your going to buy all the same brands you bought in the UK then your going to pay a fortune because they're imported. Tech is expensive because of import duties, so don't buy tech here, buy it when you go home or on holiday. It seems like you've tried to copy and paste your life with out making any adjustments. I stay in a modern brand new 1 bed condo, eat out to a restaurant once a day (never eat street food), movies twice a week, couple of day trips, etc. but I don't buy crap I don't need. I spend about £400-450 a month. If I have someone to share expenses with it would be less.
Yes I'm on a holiday visa. Between entries I explore the rest of Asia or I can do a border run for £12. There is no crack down on digital nomads.

And you know as well as I do that you are not a tourist but you are living and working in Thailand on a tourist visa which is something that the government is constantly cracking down on and changing the immigration laws for every few months without notice. Your entry is purely at the disgresion of the immigration officer on the day of your visa run and soon enough all of those entry stamps, tourist visas and the longterm stays in Thailand with no job or proof of income will ring alarm bells and you will be denied entry one time and that's the abrupt end of your life here.

You don't have to get all testy because I'm trying to have a conversation with you about your post. Also, I'm in the same boat as you and I'm also at the mercy of immigration and whatever new rule they want to enforce this year. I live here and have kids here but I work outside Thailand every month so there is no visa that fits for what I am doing so I too have to live on tourist visas and entry stamps and constantly jump through hoops and keep up with the frequently changing visa rules. All it's gonna take is one new rule, something like expats can't spend more that 90 days in Thailand a year and that's my life with my family here completely ruined so it's difficult to make any longterm plans here.

Plenty of us living here from visa to visa. If you want the best value for money lifestyle this planet has to offer, Thailand is your place. (especially Chiang Mai). My rent is £100 per month for a nice flat with a pool.
Whats the catch/ for that price there must be one.??
No catch. You can live a good life here for £250 per month per person all expenses if your a couple, bit more if your single. That would include renting a proper well kept 2-3 bedroom house with garden, eating out a couple times a week, going to movies often, fuel, a few excursions and evens some weekends away, etc. Theoretically I could live here for 20 years and never work a day with the relatively meagre saving I have. If getting the best deal is important to you, this place is paradise.
are you retired? i'm mid twenties and would love to do what you've done but no idea if i could find work out there
I'm 33. Probably half the people here are in their 20's. If you ask me, you don't really want to work here in a job. Salaries are terrible even though as a foreigner you get payed double what Thais get. But many work as english teachers who usually get around 1000 USD per month. I have a small online business, others have remote jobs or work as contractors for overseas clients. Some come out here to try and start an online business and live off their savings till they make it. Living out here will give you 3-4 times the time to achieve it compared to living in the west. Ideally,what you want it to live out here and earn a western equivalent salary. You end up saving 3/4 of your income.
I'll take your silence on the subject of your visa to mean that you are either here illegally on visa overstay or you don't want to admit the hassle and money you have to go through every month to stay here legally. :)

Is there much opportunity for work? Somebody told me that employers are encouraged to give jobs to Australians over brits so I'm a bit worried I'd be unemployed and skint after a month.
Eek, reviews of STA are terrible. Granted, this isn't expecting all that much of them, but I can't afford any hassle with my visa and obviously the flight either. Any trouble from anyone here? Saving money is great but the last thing I want hassle with in the UK for a year or 2 is this!
For anyone who's booked via this deal, is there decent flight availability? My finger's on the trigger, but want to make sure I could get a flight in late May/early June...

Good find. Great price.
Hot. Good airline too. It's that con of a tax the APD that puts so much on long haul flights from UK. £388 for a family of 4 flying to Australia.Add to that Heathrow charges for parking a plane, about the highest in the world and an airline has to sell out it's business class just to recover the fees.

"Similar taxes in several other countries have been abolished after it became clear that they were harming the economy. Most recently, in October, the Irish government scrapped its aviation tax."

good deal
Thank you for posting this, went for it!
Looks like I'll do what I normally do then & see things at my own pace, I guess the appeal of this is that you would be sharing the whole experience with a group & could make some very good friends. Planning a big trip next year so will add Himalayas & Ecuador to th agenda. Thanks for sharing :)
Not one of the more enlightened companies as they only accept under 40's. Dont know what they think happens to you after that age!!.
I went to Ecuador in 2009. Beautiful country. make sure you check out the death road to Mount Cayambe, Climb Cotopaxi & Chimborazo. Quito is a nice city apart from the eyesore that is the Virgin of Quito Statue. Also check out Banos where Mount Tungurahua erupts quite often & there are a couple of bunjee swings on the outskirts.
I also went to Kathmandu in 2011. It is a very filthy city & you take your life into your hands when crossing the road. However it is a gateway into the Khumbu Valley in the Himalayas. If you are doing a trek to say Mera Peak or Island Peak then a few days in Kathmandu is tolerable. Then you have the flight to Lukla. Highly recommend this flight if you're looking for adventure. Also i got to see Mount Makalu, Kanchenjunga & Everest whilst on the Mera La.

£390 from Manchester on delta a few weeks ago

Just paid £450 return Manchester to Toronto and back from Newark ny
So not a great deal
It is actually a good deal. Normally flights are +£400 and they're only around £400 on a good day.

£390 was a one off deal and even still this is cheaper.

and its also £60 cheaper then your two leg flight which isnt even flying into the same country.
£390 from Manchester on delta a few weeks ago

Just paid £450 return Manchester to Toronto and back from Newark ny
So not a great deal
How much are flights to NY usually?
You have no idea how tempting this is, if only there were WrestleMania tickets available.

I agree totally about pushing your way around SE Asia and I've been doing it for many years and I recently posted a couple of deals here on open jaw flights there. Actually Malaysia has a lot going for it, the path is less trodden and Air Asia operate more dirt cheap flights around the region from their base in KL than from anywhere else on their network.

I also think you have difficulty getting the open jaw BKK-HGK during school holidays for less than £750.

" Of course, this deal includes Australia which is much harder to include in these budget itineraries, but it really depends what you want! "

Thing is that is what a lot of people want, and its that sector that can make this a reasonable deal.

That of course may be what people want but as I pointed out in an earlier post there are no details of availability or restrictions in the post or link, it includes the magic words "from" so to go on the dates you might want to go could make this deal mega cold in which case we are both right ! :D

Well you might have at least provided details of these better and cheaper trips.

There are just loads, I could spend weeks typing away furiously listing better/cheaper ways to go on an adventure! For example, You can fly to BKK and return from HKG for about 500GBP in the summer (with Turkish airlines via IST, I think 516 to be precise), now THERE is a much more interesting holiday already; you could travel overland through Laos, Vietnam, China, Cambodia (all easy - at least safe - for a novice) and make use of the cheap flights to Philippines, Taiwan etc. from Hong Kong. That way you could visit loads of countries without counting places like Dubai, KL, etc. - which personally I don't think suit a young traveler. In fact, even if you only wanted a very tame holiday just flying around several exotic countries you could fly from LGW to BKK to HKG, and make trips from there to Philippines, Taiwan and probably Japan (return to MAN) and still spend less than 1059GBP.

Of course, this deal includes Australia which is much harder to include in these budget itineraries, but it really depends what you want!

Cold from me, Dubai, Colombo, Singapore, Kuala Lumpur... Hardly exciting stuff as far as this kind of traveling goes. As a family holiday, this is probably a good deal but for students on a budget I can think of much better (and cheaper) trips - especially if your aim is to visit seven countries!

This is great! Im planning on doing something like this in 2014. As my Wife works in a School and I work Off-Shore we can take te kids away for the entire Summer Holidays.

So, if you have 6 weeks to travel around what would be the best way to do it? Ie, what would be the best number of stops for such a short time? It would be great to travel right around the world but is this feasible in 6 weeks?

Feasible but not enjoyable. Its not an RTW trip anyway. Having said that, there are zero details on dates or validity either here or on the link, those factors alone can make this a deal or a washout.How flexible are the stops ? However without seeing the details I think I can reasonably put you out of your misery, you ain't going to get this for dates in the summer hols.

Six weeks would make a comfortable SE Asia trip. Trying to push kids around at too fast a rate is a recipe for disaster, these trips are often not suitable anyway, you really need flexibility on a a multi-stop with kids. Rosie picks up an ear infection on Ko Samui and can't fly for 10 days, whole family can't fly...how much to change dates....can you change dates ? On many tickets if you can't complete a leg the whole ticket becomes invalid....don't count on travel insurance covering this, too many variables. Might get you home but don't count on anything more.

Your best bet is often an "open jaw" ticket, fly into S,pore and out of Bangkok or into Sydney out of Melbourne etc on a duration as short as six weeks. You want to take time to look around you, sometimes you get somewhere and just don't want to move on that fast, with kids this is so important. These tickets are great for gap years, not for families. Not pouring cold water on your plans believe me, think travel is the greatest thing you can do with kids, but give them time to soak up the culture, they will love it, don't do the "if this is Tuesday its Melbourne..." routine on them, they will hate it.

the fact they charge so much is why I can't see this as a deal.

It is overpriced for what it is, we're looking at doing our own Peru trip around September. It's looking very cheap to find your own accommodation and get about and at least you have a choice of where you stay and you can pick rather than staying in hostels or shared hotel rooms as the standard of accommodation on these type of tours are quite poor, that's where they make their money. Also, better go with a good company for the Inca Trail, e.g. Peru Trek or Llama Trial, check out Tripadvisor. Flights from the UK to Lima can be as cheap as just over £500 from now til around June, then they go right up to around £900 between July - September, which is unfortunatly when we want to go!!
same here... i wouldnt have known such deal... i ALWAYS and its my dream to explore amazon. At the moment, i wont be able to go now, but definitely in the future.

Self-promotion or not, I, for one, would not have been aware of this trip if it hadn't been posted. I've just spent a fascinated 15 minutes "reading all about it" and would love to go - if only I had the £4,000+ that this trip would likely cost for myself and my wife, after adding in the airfares to/from Peru, meals, excusions, spending money etc.
Booked this last week with STA.
If these trips don't suit what you want to do also try Intrepid Travel as they're doing 2-4-1 on their Peru tours but slightly different options

isn't there a discount on STA prices if you have an international student card?
Yes not ideal, but someone may like the time in Paris.
It's not for me either, but better to know and have the chance to decide. I'm not a fan of STA but prices as low as 535 are available, and it is a good price, but not good enough for me with that schedule, but as i say someone may like that Paris layover.

Just be good if they'd stated why it was cold y'know.

1) Excessively long total journey times. I know you said this in the OP, but they really are long.
2) Only show fares from LHR, but as the main flights start in Europe, then any UK airport that flies to Amsterdam or Paris should be included without having to do an extra search.
3) Most options offered are far higher than the headline price. This really get up my nose.
Yeah Yeah, fair point!

If the heat degree rating goes down, does that indicate cold votes?

Great offer! I went round the world with Sta travel last year and it was a LOT more expensive than that! It was worth it though.

Has anyone always wanted to see the Northern Lights? I just came across a competition on Facebook to win a four-night holiday to the Arctic Circle. Wow! The page is called 'I want to see the Northern Lights' and all you have to do is like the page to enter. Now that would be an experience!

Thanks. There are 3 of us, were 23. I've got Chicago already planned as I've always wanted to go there, but apart from that I don't know the best route across or places to see.

You are all in the perfect age group to take a tour from Contiki, a holiday company for 18-35's. (It is a million times better than the 18-30 holidays to Europe you may have heard about!). I have taken 4 Contiki tours to the USA and have had some of the very best experiences of my life. In my opinion, there is absolutely no better way to see the USA (or any of the other countries that Contiki tours operate in, though I have only been on Contiki tours to the USA). Plus you make loads of new friends every time, in fact a whole coach load, and they are all really very friendly and adventurous people (mostly from Australia by the way - Ozzies clearly love travelling!).

Check out the Contiki USA tours at the following link: Contiki tours North America. Personally I recommend the Grand Northern tour (a tour I have been on, as well as the Grand Southern) as you want to visit Chicago (in which case you must go up the Sears Tower, just like Ferris Bueller, his girlfriend Sloane and his best friend Cameron!).

The main issues are basically: how much time you have, and how much money you have, as Contiki tours are not particularly cheap (although I consider them to be excellent value), but you do get all your accommodation paid for (and they are all really good motels and hotels, but you'll mainly be spending your time on excursions, at dinners, socialising and partying!). You also have to allow some extra money for some optional activities and excursions that are not included, but having said that, you do get a lot of dinners and activities included in the tour price as well.

By the way, I don't work for Contiki but absolutely ADORE their tours! And guess who the first person who told me about a Contiki tour was - a travel rep at STA Travel at my old university! Also I have only ever travelled alone on Contiki tours, but made about 40 new friends on each tour within half a day of starting the tour. And some of those people are fantastic. And after all, you go travelling to meet new people as well as seeing new places.

Having typed out all the above, I've got a feeling that Contiki tours may be out of your budget 9and also you may not have enough time - in which case I still strongly recommend one of their shorter tours, say 12 days), but I strongly recommend them for the future anyway.

If you or anyone else has any questions about Contiki tours (to the USA anyway), please feel free to ask me or PM me.

I am typing this at nearly 5 am so I'm tired, but whether or not you go to the USA by Contiki tours, I will try to find time next time to give you a list of some things you must do. Personally my favourite place in the USA is the Grand Canyon (something that has to be seen in person to be believed), which I have walked down and walked up (not to be underestimated - it takes HOURS!!) 3 times. Also you must see all the main sights in New York of course. And hang out a bit in Las Vegas for fun (but I can't handle Vegas for more than a few days at a time). When I remember other places, I will mention them.

Have fun travelling, you lucky so-and-so!!

you also have to make your own way from LA to NY. so quite uninspiring route!!
LA to NY Roadtrip!!!
That is one hell of a road trip. Would take you weeks!


It would take 38 days exactly to walk it! (http://maps.google.co.uk/maps?hl=en&q=la%20to%20new%20york&um=1&ie=UTF-8&sa=N&tab=wl)

Only 1 day 21 hours in the car!


Going by Google maps though? Trust me, you won't do it in under 2days! It would take a week for most people when you factor in sleeping. eating, toilet breaks etc. and thats without doing any touristy stuff/exploring
Hope you have a couple grand spare for that one! Cook Island will bump it up abit too.


STA quoted £1560 inc taxes to do the trip we have planned but we have a cheaper quote for it from http://www.roundtheworldflights.com.

Cook Islands will be worth whatever the extra.
STA are a great company, but it is the Student Travel Association, so don't expect luxury :0)
