Your Hoop Dream Instructor Team : 11 – 16 April 2018
Selamat datang, welcome to Malaysia, truly Asia! We want to show you a country rich with culture, where colonial architecture meets glittering city skyscrapers, misty tea plantations, rainforests, sun soaked islands, and beautiful beaches are all stitched together through the country’s stunning diversity.
Malaysia is a melting-pot of races and religions where Malays, Indians, Chinese and traditional ethnic groups live together in peace and harmony. Malaysia’s multiculturalism has made the country a foodie paradise and home to many colourful festivals and celebrations.
Langkawi island is world renowned as simply tropical paradise. Langkawi has a little for everyone. Love white (or black) sand beaches? Perfect. Fancy exploring over 99 islands by kayak or traditional Malaysian fishing boat? This island is for you.
Whether you love jungle trekking, nature watching, lazy beach days, luxury spas, or adventure sports…Langkawi can provide you the experience you have dreamt of.

Most people will fly into the capital city (Kuala Lumpur) and then take a regional flight to Langkawi island. The event is on LANGKAWI ISLAND! 😉
To Malaysia: The main international airport in Malaysia is the Kuala Lumpur International Airport or KLIA (airport code: KUL).
To Langkawi: From there you will need to catch a 60 minute domestic flight to Langkawi island (airport code: LGK) with either Malaysia Airlines, Malindo Air or Air Asia. There are around 20 flights each day.
Please check which airport your domestic flight leaves from as there are 3 airports in Kuala Lumpur.
We will be organising transfers for you and your hoops from the Langkawi airport to Hoop Happiness Headquarters.
