Once in awhile, the Astronomical Society will decide to travel slightly further (in the SEA region) to explore new places suitable for astronomical retreats. This time, the 38th installment of AstroBash will see to that.

During a meet up with our friends from the Nanyang Technological University Astronomical Society, we heard from their experiences of their trip to Langkawi. Realizing that we have not venture to that area yet, we decided to give a try.
