Paramount Palace Hotel @ Dannok, Thailand

As many had know, Dannok is located right over the immigration counter of Thailand.

Although it’s located so near to Malaysia, but the town here is really very different to Malaysia, and most importantly, they served great food here!

Paramount Palace Hotel is just less than 5 minutes walking from the immigration counter. A new hotel I was told, and the hotel does look good from the outlook.

The room, however, is a real basic one.

The air corn however, no remote control in the room and hence you can’t adjust the temperature.

When I ask the front desk where’s the remote control, I was told it was set to auto, and if the air-conditioner was not cool, I can called to complaint. But, what’s if it’s too cold? Guess that’s why they have a fan in the room. =.=’

Malibest Resort @ Langkawi

Initially, I planned to have a 4 days 3 nights stay in Langkawi, then when planning my itinerary I find that time is not enough, hence I extend 1 more day.

BUT, after spending 4 nights in Langkawi, especially after the Pulau Payar trip (which I did not blog about it), I find that I am kinda exhausted. I want a day where I can do nothing on the beach and have a good rest. Hence, I decided to extend 1 more night, which in the end, I spend 6 days 5 nights in Langkawi!

Although Four Points by Sheraton had a great room and pool, but I decided to spend my last night at some hotel in Pantai Cenang.

After some quick research, and due to the mother of luck is on my side, I manage to book a Super Deluxe Beach front room at Malibest Resort.

After sending Cow Cow to the airport, I checked in at around 1.30PM at Malibest resort. Since the room is scattered around by the beach, their staff lead us to our room.

While the room is a normal budget resort style….

While the bed is not really that comfortable….

While most of the furniture in the room is kinda old….

Unkaizan Japanese Restaurant @ Langkawi

After the tiring and disappointing trip from Pulau Payar (which I did not blog about), and since it’s our last day in Langkawi, I and Cow Cow decided to have our dinner at Unkaizan Japanese Restaurant, which we both heard that it served great Japanese food.

Unkaizan Japanese Restaurant located at a hill along Pantai Tengah. The road leading up to the restaurant is very small and steep, so drive slow if not you will just missed the entrance.

If you choose to sit at the upper floor, you can enjoy some nice view while dining. Reservation is advisable if you travel on peak period since the restaurant is quite small only.

Crystal Yacht Sunset Cruise @ Langkawi

I had heard a lot about sunset cruise before I went to Langkawi, and I had read quite a lot and most of their websites make me WOW.

However, joining this cruise as a couple only might not be as fun hence it’s really a hard decision for me to join or not since this 3 hour activity is not cheap. It cost RM250 per person so yea…hard decisions to made eh.

Luckily, cow cow decided to join us in Langkawi, and since he is also interested in this sunset cruise, here we are!

The cruise started at 5PM, but they already starting to pick up guest as early as 4PM. The van driver arrived at our hotel at 4.15PM sharp, and took us to Awana Porto Malai.

And no, this boat is NOT the one we are going to spend 3 hours on. It’s just to transport us to the yacht.
