I have 3 weeks holiday in Jan/Feb 08 and am looking to plan a trip for my wife and I to an exotic island or islands in the vicinity of Malaysia. I am really keen on fishing (catch and release) and take my travel rod where ever I go, can anyone tell me where to go if you want the follolwing:

Fishing from the shore and boat (I know a lot of islands are marine parks and this is banned).
Fairly nice accommodation/hotels-my budget is flexi
Stunning scenery and beaches with plenty of wildlife
Good selection of activities, sailing, snorkelling,scuba,walking and exploring
Good weather given the time of year Jan/Feb
No hords of tourists

Dont ask for much!!! Any assisstance would be greatly appreciated, I have looked at Pemanggil Island, Pangkor, Langkawi and am not sure where to go?

toby, i think pangkor would better suit u and ur family cos the place is not as pack as langkawi. it is a lot more cheaper compare to langkawi. try pangkor beach resort, formerly known as the pan pacific pangkor. been there before, it's nice. you can get all the privacy that you need cos it is located at the other part of the island. fishing trip is available too.

My personal favorite are Rawa Island, Pulau Perhentian and Pulau Redang. (You will love it there)

If you're want big waves, try Cherating in Pahang.

More budget ones will be Pulau Pangkor, I recommend Pangkor Island Beach Resort. During my last stay in October. It was good. Nice view. Other than that, Pulau Langkawi, there's a duty free place where your wife will enjoy shopping stuff.

Hope that helps!
