Although located in a remote corner of the Langkawi Kraft Complex, which in itself is built away from the main tourism spots, Faizy Crystal receives plenty of visitors. With good reason! While the majority of retail stores on the island lure with handicraft imported from the neighboring countries, the unique glass object you will find at the Faizy Crystal showroom are truly Langkawian products. So much so, you can actually enter the adjacent workshop and watch the artisans while they work. (More beautiful pictures !)
Hi Friends of Langkawi – GOOD NEWS
There is a new development in regard to customs alcohol and cigarette restrictions.
The news is, that the “Chois” 24hrs shops - and probably many others too – can now officially sell beer and cigarettes with no limits and no identification necessary.
When I came across this news I then went to Kuah and here in the 4 big shops selling alcohol there were still the custom people in uniform present. I tried to figure out what the rules are – and I got confirmed that indeed “Chois” (and probably many others) are now allowed to sell alcohol and cigarettes with no limits and no identification.
When I asked if I could here also, in this shop where they were present, buy beer without limit and identification I was told that no, here in the big shop I would have to show my passeport.
Asking what the difference was, it seems that “Chois” is regarded as a 2nd class shop – and what I guess is, that they do not sell hard liquor, but only beer. But as the custom people did not speak English – this is just a guess.
It is now clear that even the system within itself does no longer make any sense – and it looks like a retreat in stages of the custom department to not lose too much face in one go….
Nice to see some sanity coming back to Langkawi :-)
