Langkawi

A two-hour ferry ride from the mainland of Malaysia is the 99-island chain of Langkawi. Martin explores this vacation paradise and its many sporting activities. Along the way he finds a true 'hole in the wall' - a culinary hideaway where the seafood is always fresh and jumping. For a taste of the high life, Martin visits the world famous Datai Langkawi resort. For contrast, he samples every day dishes in a pavilion above a rice paddy.
