    • They DO have beer… however, it’s more expensive in Malaysia (apart from Langkawi as it’s a duty-free island) as it’s a Muslim country. By ‘more expensive’… I mean 1.5 euros… which isn’t actually very much in the grand scheme of things. Christian thought it was expensive as he had travelled in Laos; there, apparently he was spending between .25-.30 euro cents! crazy, eh?!
