My Bestie and I did a little impromptu trip to Malaysia last month, the result was nothing short of awesome. Unplanned trips are always fun especially when you don’t know the itinerary for the day. All we would do was, wake up in the morning, google search for the places to visit and then just run to the place by local transport or hire a bike. We didn’t pack our days with it though, doing all the touristy things, we just were very laid back. So if you have 2 days in Langkawi here is what we recommend:
1) Take the Sky cab: For an eagle’s eye view of Langkawi, you will have to go through one of the steepest cable car ropes in the world. So back off if you are faint hearted, it’s gonna leave you bleary for a while. Reaching the top will give you a 360 degree angle of the flora in the Langkawi island. The ride two way is about MYR 45 and is worth it all.
2) Walk on the Sky Bridge: When you take the sky cab, get down at the first stop and head to another small gate just a few metres ahead, you will find another way leading to the sky bridge. The walk is a beautiful 125 metre long one, through the gorges where you witness a spectacular view of Telajah Tujuh Waterfalls and several other eyelets in Langkawi.
3) Parasailing at Tanjung Rhu beach: I have been parasailing in Thailand, Srilanka and Goa, but nothing beats this in terms of the height it takes you to. I was up in the air for almost 10 minutes, taking in all the beauty of the serene blue-green sea, making it seem like I was flying free like a bird. I surely was playing the song ‘I believe I can Fly, I believe I can touch the sky’ in my mind.
4) Visit Kilim Karst Geo Forest Park for Mangrove forest exploration: Hire a boat inside the Kilim Karst Geo Forest Park and take a tour through the Mangrove Forests, witness the limestone formations, caves and beaches.
5) Visit the Dataran Lang (Eagle Square) : Set in Kuah, a 5 minute walk from Kuah Jetty Point is Eagle square, where you will find a 12 metre tall sculpture of an Eagle that is about to take flight.
6) Island Hop: Hire a boat and go island hopping, explore the nearby caves the mangrove forests, fresh water lakes, go snorkelling.
To make our stay memorable, we picked a bay view resort. To add to the scenic view, we chose to travel during the monsoon to avoid all the hustle and bustle. I surely despise all the heat waves in summer too. That’s all for now, my next post is about things to do in Kuala Lumpur so, stay tuned.
