4-Day Langkawi Trip

Tripoto
12th Aug 2016

After a long gap, I thought to take a long holiday. Talked about it with a friend and checked the calendar, luckily found a long weekend in the mid of August. So, I started planning with him for much awaited long holiday.

With a tight budget, started searching for the flights from New Delhi(ND) to Kuala Lumpur (KL) and then from KL to Langkawi(LK).

Next step, the hotels : found some reviews about the location and hotels online and booked the hotel for 4 nights / 5 days in Langkawi.

So the journey started.

Day 1

Day-1

1) Airport to hotel : around 1 P.M.

We were 2 couples, took cab and reached the hotel within 30 minutes.

2) Check-IN (Holiday Villa Beach Resort & Spa) :

Needed a beach resort to relax and enjoy the stay, referred some online hotel booking websites and got a great deal for this 4-star property.

It took 45 more minutes for us to get our room keys, they upgraded our room type for this delay. YAY..

3) Lunch :

Had lunch in one of the restaurant at the resort. Vegetarians have to think twice before ordering anything.

4) Underwater world, Local Market, duty-free shops

We skipped underwater world langkawi, as we had plans for Aquaria, KL. Check their website for entry tickets and feeding time. http://www.underwaterworldlangkawi.com.my

Visited to Cenang beach, Cenang Mall and Duty free shops as well.

5) Dinner:

Found two Indian restaurants, Sagar and Tulsi garden on our way back to resort. After a long day finally had north Indian dinner at Sagar.

Rented a scooter on the way back and a walk on the beach after dinner was just awesome.

The day started early in the morning with a buffet breakfast having more than 50 items. unfortunately for vegetarians the options were less.

We left our resort to explore Langkawi and started with:

1) Oriental village:

This place will require 5 to 6 hours to complete. It is operated by the company Panorama Langkawi. check there website for complete list of activities and entry fees. www.panoramalangkawi.com

Things to do:

A) Sky Dome : A short Movie of a roller coaster ride. Its useless.

B) Sky cab : A long Cable car to enjoy the breath taking views. It has three levels : Base station, which has sky dome. Mid station: For nice photographs and Top station : for sky bridge and panoramic view.
