Witnessed the airshow from MIEC (Mahsuri International Exhibition Centre). Paying an extra RM10 would give you access to the runway where you can take closer shots of the planes and even have a sneak peak inside. The scorching heat was not a deterrent for any of these airshow enthusiasts. The air-conditioned complex of the MIEC is a huge relief after you've had enough of the outdoors. One after another you can see the plane and choppers take off and perform spectacular acrobatics you can't even imagine. Unfortunately the Red Arrow team was not participating this year as their show are always a highlight.
I think the best part of Langkawi is its cheap beer and chocolates. Imagine RM1.80 for a can of cold Tiger beer. That's about USD$0.52...where else in the world could you find beer so dirt cheap?
