Exotic Escape: NYC or LA - Langkawi, Malaysia for $503+ Roundtrip, Winter Travel

Looking for two tickets to paradise? Here's a deal that could fit the bill. Fly from New York-JFK to Langkawi, Malaysia for $503 roundtrip, or from Los Angeles to Langkawi for $513 roundtrip this winter on China Southern Airlines.

Langkawi A.K.A., the Jewel of Kedah, is an archipelago off the coast of Malaysia and home to some of the country's best beaches. Featuring a geopark, skybridge, and excellent snorkeling and diving, this exotic island destination will give you loads of activities to escape the doldrums of winter weather.

Flights at this price are available daily starting in late February through the middle of March with returns open through the beginning of April. A 7-day minimum stay is required. 

Some routes may require an overnight layover in a connecting city in China, which would most likely be the central hub in Guangzhou (CAN). If this is the case, think of it as a 2-for-1 opportunity, because China Southern offers free accommodation for layovers ranging from 8 to 48 hours.

As an example, I found seats departing LAX on Wednesday, February 27 and returning from LGK on Wednesday, March 6, 2019. Other dates are easy to dig out in the listed travel window of February and March.

If Langkawi is a bit too far and exotic for your tastes, we've got a whole list of discount fares to other Island Getaways and Best Beach destinations listed for you.
