The picturesque Island was a sight to behold. During flight landing, view mesmerised me. Clear blue sea, hills, forest, clouds. It was heavenly abode. Luckily, we landed on the day of onset of rainy season. Weather was perfect. It was paradise.
We booked one of the beach resort, around 4 Kilometres from the Langkawi International Airport. By the time, we reached the hotel it was already 4 pm. Arrival day was the rest day for us. We walked around the resort. The pristine, serene atmosphere was the perfect relaxing place for us. Amazing sea view, away from the hustle bustle of the city was soothing our senses.
If you are looking for luxury stay you can try Berjaya Langkawi Resort . For backapackers you can stay in Pantai Cenang area, place has several cafes, pubs and restaurants and flea markets.
Day 1 - We woke-up early in the morning around 7 am. By 9:30 am, we were ready for our first day excursion. The first half , we planned for Mangrove tour and second half for Sky Cable Ride.
A) Mangrove tour
Boat tour was in Kilim Geoforest Park. Weather was just awesome, it was rainy and windy day. I thought, it would be leisurely boat ride, but turned out be fast speed boat ride with Adrenaline rush. The forest was a beautiful mix of mangroves, isolated beaches and blue lagoons.
