I'm planning on going to Langkawi at the end of July for just over a week after travelling the East Coast of Oz. Would love some suggestions on accommodation (fairly reasonable price if possible) & things to do if anyone has been before.
Any help is greatly appreciated ;)

It depends on the budget. 1st you need to know where you want to go.
There's a lot of activity you can do there.
Among the interesting places are
- cable car
- kilim eagle nest
- lovely food
- island hopping
- beach activity..

I stopped at a place called Gecko Guest House on the main beach (think it was called Cenang). I stopped in the dorm but they also have twin/doubles which are reasonable as well. It gets quite busy so sometimes it can be full, but if you turn up and they haven't got any beds then there's a couple of other cheap hostels/guest houses right next to it.

I can't remember the exact price I paid but it was basically the cheapest option on Langkawi.

Most of the budget accomodation is at Pantai Cenang which is a nice enough beach and not a bad place to relax. I much prefer the beach at Tanjung Rhu but the only accomodation there is 2 moderately expensive resort hotels (Tanjung Rhu Resort and Four Seasons Langkawi).
