Having struggled to find specifics for this leg of my trip I've put together a summary of to to get from Langkawi-Ko Lanta together with the costs. It is possible to buy an all-in ticket for the journey to Lanta from an agent on Langkawi, but if you wish totravel independently then the following was correct as of late October 2011. As a simple comparison, if the all-in ticket from Langkawi-Lanta costs over 100MYR door to door, then you can doit cheaper independently. To make the journey from ...

Hi everybody. Thanks to Airasia changing my flight times for my upcoming trip in January, I am stuck with a 24 hour layover in KL Airport.
