Has anyone taken the ferry from Landkawi to Penang recently. Thinking of doing this instead of flying. I would appreciate any comments.
I posted a similar question not too long ago, do a search and some responses will come up with a mix bag of experiences. While I havent been able to find too many positive experiences of this ferry, I have decided to give it ago as an alternative to flying and am hoping for the best - can only write it off as a never again activity if it doesnt go so well :-)
Many people take the ferry & are very happy to do so but do remember to take a jumper or jacket to slip on as the aircon on board can be fierce.
As you are on the sea the crossing may also be a little rough & it takes a lot longer than the plane.
at certain times of the year the ferry to Penang is overbooked and can be a nightmare!
I hate flying but I do it if I have to for Penang!
