We had to attend a week-long training in Kuala Lumpur and thus decided to utilize both weekends effectively. Malaysia would never have been top of my mind as a travel destination but I was in for a nice surprise. So first day, landing in Kuala Lumpur,we took a late morning flight to Langkawi. The descent is beautiful as you see the sandy tropical islands from up above surrounded by blinding blue sea. After landing we took a cab to our AirBnB which was some ways away from the main beach but had a nice view of the bay. Our first area of visit was of course the world-famous Langkawi Sky Bridge. With my fear of heights I was super tentative about going up all the way in that steep cable car, and while the journey was nerve-wracking, nothing could beat the mind-blowing view from the observation decks and the sky bridge. Surrounded on all sides by green heavily forested hills, endless seas and tiny sandy islands, we spent a substantial amount of time there before heading back and going to Pantai Cenang beach, where we sat at a nice bar on bean bags drinking into the night.
