i sound desperate, do i? haha.
It's monsoon season now, which means the more beautiful islands on the east coast are probably closed.
What's left now are just beaches on the east coast (not so sure if those are closed as well, but I don't think so), islands on the west coast (Pangkor, Penang, Langkawi). There are also beautiful islands and beaches in Malaysian Borneo (Sabah & Sarawak) but I've heard before that those places are hit by the monsoon too.
Check out www.islands.com.my for more information on all islands in Malaysia. If your choice is in the east coast or Sabah/Sarawak, give them a call first to check if those places are badly hit by the monsoon.
Have a happy trip.
Don't think with the budget indicated you are able to go to East M'sia. Langkawi will be great since you are planning to go shopping.
