Experiences in Langkawi

Cruise through the mangrove forests enjoying the scenic backdrop of limestone karsts and caves whilst spotting the diverse wildlife including various species of monkeys, some who feast on the local crabs.  The Geopark is also renowned for its population of sea eagles which soar above this dramatic landscape hunting for fish.  In fact according to one interpretation, Langkawi means ‘island of the reddish-brown eagle’.

In terms of attractions that have only existed come in to existence more recently, why not take a cable car ride to the summit of Mount Mat Cincang, offering panoramic views of the surrounding islands and giving you a stunning perspective on the archipelago as a whole.   Once you reach the top, you can venture on to the SkyBridge, a 125 metre long curved pedestrian bridge, the best spot for a photo, as long as you’re comfortable looking down through the glass floor!

Of course there’s also a plethora of white-sand beaches to enjoy, both at the hotel and around the island, where you can grab a drink in an ocean-side restaurant or try some water sports.  If you’re looking to explore further afield, head out on a yacht for a spot of island-hopping or a jet-ski as an alternative mode of transport.   After sunset there’s also the bustling night markets to browse for your souvenirs to take home!
