Langkawi to Penang Destination Reviews

Such a nice short flight
flight Economy, AirAsia (AirAsia), Feb 17, 2020
Efficient service. Would use again
flight Economy, AirAsia (AirAsia), Feb 15, 2020
3 stars only because the airconditioning was so cold that almost the whole boat was frozen. It was just too cold on board. Everything else was good/great.

On arrival to the ferry we were told we would have to pay 20myr for each of our bags (despite other customers with bags of equal size not being stopped or charged). Either it is a policy or not, should be enforced for everyone. If there is going to be a charge for baggage, customers should know that ahead of time. Also, the movie that was playing was extremely loud and probably not the most appropriate considering there was young children on board.
Ferry Ferry, Super Fast Ferry Ventures, Jan 26, 2020
Pleasant enough, calm conditions and the seat was ok. Nothing outstanding but a decent ferry
Ferry Ferry, Super Fast Ferry Ventures, Jan 24, 2020
Good Service and on time
Ferry Ferry, Super Fast Ferry Ventures, Jan 19, 2020
Picked out seats at booking but the seats are actually arranged right before boarding. So first come, first serve. Ended up sitting near the toilets with the sun glaring into our seats. Also, the pockets from the seat in front are GRIMMY to the truest sense of the definition. Don't put anything in there.
