£49 return flight to Langkawi, Malaysia with STA Travel (limited to 49 people)

34
Found 22nd Apr 2017
Statravel are doing a promotion where beach holidays flights are being sold as £49 return. I saw the advert online and was thinking it probably for flights to Spain or Portugal but apparently first offering is Langkawi in Malaysia. Normal return flights to Malaysia cost over £400 so its a right bargain.

Getting the offer is a little draw of luck. in 4 days the link posted will reveal the shop which is selling the flights for £49. you can call the shop (google to get the shop number) or just show up. If you are the first 49 person to book, you will get the flight for £49 return.

This promo is to run every week, with new destinations added and again return flight being £49. Probably worth bookmarking to see what other flight offers comes up.

Good luck to everyone who is after these flights.

Beautiful place but there is a box Jellyfish problem on the beach and the … 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...
I'd be happy with just a single for £49 for my wife.

If I booked a return, I just know she'd come back!
I'm sorry, but who says everyone around the world has to drink alcohol? You've screwed up enough destinations with your booze filled decadence.

T&C's say you have to be there in person...
Oh I hate students am sure I was hated when I was one but still hate them now
at this price I am willing to act like a student
Outstanding deal. Langkawi is also the duty free centre of Malaysia so booze and chocs are crazy cheap

And food. But it's not very lively. Civilised enough but I found it lacked character.

Edit: but a great cheap way to get into Asia.

Nobody but the guy has a really good insight into what is going on in Malaysia.
I hate these types of promotions. It's fine if you want to get customers in-store to sell them another product, but in this case I can't see it working.
"Do you have any of the £49 flights left?"
"No, but we can get you to Australia for £700 if you want"
Paid £330 in January to fly in June so very good deal. Wondering about flight to Langkawi though as our flight is to KL then internal flight to Langkawi. Newcastle - Amsterdam -Kuala Lumpur but only 14 hours

Who exactly are you referring to when you say "You've"?
Sounds suspiciously like "You people" to me - a phrase with an interesting history.
Went there in Jan... you won't be disappointed

Listen to yourself...It's not just Muslims that live in Malaysia you know … 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.

But you haven't said how you've seen it and you haven't contradicted a single point that I've made. You have no better response than calling me silly names - So how about you run along to your little safe space and cry yourself to sleep.
Was at the sta in Victoria (London) and one of the people let slip it was going to be their store that had this deal.

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.

Great deal and good heads up for anyone who lives within travelling distance of the place to take up this offer and future offers. Shame about the politics on the rest of this thread but thanks OP
They'll be going on sale from 9am on the 27th April in two of our UK STA Travel stores: London Victoria and Manchester Deansgate! Camping outside of the STA Travel stores is strictly prohibited by Council authorities and tents will be removed
So its london and manchester but remember no camping and no tents X)

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.

There is a good night market in Kuah town on Langkawi (but little else in Kuah, to be honest) on Wed and Sat; apparently there is one at Pantai Cenang on Thu but I didn't go. Food is definitely good at night markets in Malaysia, even if you are vegetarian like me, and they are worth seeking out.
anybody had any luck with tickets?

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.

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 - thestar.com.my/new…ty/

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

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.
Might try and get this for a one way trip on its own
Then forget to come home!!!
MusaX - if you don't the fact just shut up. Malaysia is secular country and official religion is Islam but is not a Muslim country. It multi faith and regilious country and don't **** compare with other nutty Muslim country. Due to recent political change, langkawi has lost the duty free status. This because some nutty Muslims doesn't like nudity, achohol, LGBT, dog that discriminating others.
