After Kuala Lumpur, Langkawi was a total shift, from the concrete jungle to nature paradise.
Here I’ll show you the places I’ve covered in 2 days at Langkawi, Malaysia.
1.Pantai Cenang: It’s a beach town on Langkawi Island, with small cafes, restaurants, street foods and duty-free shops to explore. Food enthusiasts can try some sumptuous street foods, I did try a few and I liked it. Didn’t find anything exemplary but if you want to have a chill evening, this is a place to visit.
2. Sky Bridge: One shouldn’t miss the ‘sky bridge’ if visiting Langkawi. Situated in between the lush rainforests and the mountain range, which is 2,300 ft above sea level. The view is breathtaking and stunning, you can view through the pictures below.
How do you commute? From the oriental village Burau Bay, take the cable car (the only option), which will stop at the centre point or also called top station and from there you will have two options, you can go via sky glide to reach sky bridge or if you are fit enough to trek take a sky trail.
Sky Bridge: The Longest Free Span and Curved Bridge In The World!
It’s a 125 meters long and 1.8 meters wide walkway above the forest, which is supported by a single pylon (height of 82-meters) in the middle, isn’t it amazing?… I loved the view, so refreshing that one can stand and enjoy it for hours.
3. Eagle Square: A 12-meter sculpture of a reddish brown eagle, Eagle Square is the place that reflects the origin of Langkawi’s name. Everything is so well maintained that all you do is enjoy the view. But this wasn’t the best part, it was the yacht we took to explore the sea around, good music, swimming, saltwater jacuzzi and of course, delicious food. It was a private yacht which accommodated only 10 people and serving is customised.
4. Underwater world: it is Malaysia’s largest aquarium with more than 200 different species of marine and freshwater fish including harbour seals, rockhopper penguins, sharks, giant rays and the enormous Amazonian arapaima – the biggest freshwater fish in the world. The place doesn’t smell of aqua species and highly maintained. Not only that they have duty free stores inside too, accessible while exiting the structure.
