Sea at Langkawi

 

Langkawi – an archipelago made up of 99 islands on Malaysia’s west coast – is the country’s best-known holiday destination.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Surrounded by stunning turquoise sea, the interior of the main island is a mixture of picturesque paddy fields and jungle-clad hills.

If you’re intent on carting off duty-free booze, cigarettes and chocolate, then this is the place to be.

Still, Nature-lovers will find the island just as agreeable as the shoreline is fringed by powder-fine sand and swaying coconut trees.

The island is especially recognised for its excellent diving opportunities and this tropical gem hides a treasure trove of other exciting holiday opportunities.

The gastronomic options are vast and the sightseeing attractions certainly do not disappoint.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

From the expansive Underwater World Langkawi along Pantai Cenang

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

to the soaring Cable Car in Pantai Kok, Langkawi is an electrifying locale that keeps visitors coming back for more.

The 15-minute journey up the mountain is definitely breathtaking and the scenery below that shows off the 4,167 ha of virgin jungle of the Mat Cincang Mountain Forest Reserve (right pic above) and Telaga Tujuh/Seven Wells is a feast for the eyes. There are viewing platforms, a restaurant and probably a suspension bridge over the valley.

=========================================================

This is a cost share travel. Come with an open mind and i'm sure we'll many fun together!

Participants  MUST have s stronge sense of adventure and be adaptable to last min changes. There will be no fix plan for this trip. Let's go with the flow.

Will explore self-drive if we can get enough drivers.

Book your own air ticket. preferably with airasia so we can all arrive at the same time.

1 month before departure, I'll collect S$100 from everyone as deposit for accomodation & car rental reservation.

 

I'll also organise a meet up before this trip!

  • Daphne

    July 4, 2012

  • Jun

    if seriously keen, all you need to do is to hop on to 10am + flight(air asia) this sat. we will be catching 8 plus flight back on tuesday. i've no access to my email currently but i m sure one of my travel mate will be glad to assist you further if you need more info. cheers!

    Simon, i dont think we have too much of what to do etc...
    Some will be heading for island hopping on the afternoon we arrive. others like myself will just take things easy and go with flow.
    on day 2, our main attraction will be the sky park... and that should take a while.
    day 3 will be another free & easy day... again, it will depends on what i've "accompolish" in day Hotel wise, i think there is an extra bed someone can share with you.

    Hey guys. Sorry, but something will be coming up at work, so I won't be able to take leave in late June/early July. Thanks for organising, and hopefully I can join you all some other time.

    May 24, 2012

  • Daphne

    Please let us know once you book your tickets.

    May 9, 2012

  • T!NA

    me and my friend have plan to go langkawi also .. can we join?

    May 9, 2012

  • Daphne

    I agree that it's ideal that ww stay together. But if people decide too late the cheap and good ones would have sold out by then. My bookings are cancellable. So if everyone has decided please let me know. First things first we need to decide the area. I figured Pantai Cenang is convenient if we are going to do day tours.

    April 22, 2012

  • Pavan K.

    Yeah, it would be great if we all stayed at the same hotel.

    April 22, 2012

  • Jun

    Nope. There is no point to reserve room for myself only. What if there isn't any room left in the same hotel? We'll have to travel to travel together everyday? Isn't that very cumbersome?

    Yup Wan, haven't booked the room yet. Will be buying flight tickets in the next few days. Will update when things are more settled. :)

  • Jun

    @ Keith, yeah i agree, as mention in the post, will arrange for a meet up closer to trip. Cheers!

    April 21, 2012

  • Jun

    @ JP, I dont think any of us has book for a hotel yet. But Daphne has booked for a room at Casa Fina in Pantai Cenang

    April 21, 2012

  • keith L

    Hi guys. Firstly, thanks Wan for setting this up. :)
    I'm looking into the flights now, and will probably buy by this week.
    @Pavan- Fazil and I are friends, and should be sharing a room. But we'd be happy to accommodate you if nothing else comes up.

    April 18, 2012

  • Pavan K.

    Yeah, I am in touch with him. He's still thinking :D

    April 18, 2012

  • Jun

    Great! Pavan, check with Fazil. HE showed great interest but been quiet lately .

    April 18, 2012

  • Pavan K.

    Departure from Changi : 7 july (sat) Flight AK 5343 @ 1055
    Departure from Langkawi: 10 july (tue) Flight AK 5342 @ 0855.

    I am looking for a partner to share hotel room with, so contact if anyone else wants to share.

    April 18, 2012

    Hi Stella, return via air Asia is abt $120/-
    Don't worry abt room. Currently we've 2 gals on the list , if there isn't a fourth gal, I'm sure we can work out something among 3 of us.

    April 16, 2012

  • Jatin

    I will most probably join. Let me do some research on the attractions which may help to decide the number of days to be spent in Langkawi. Thanks.

    April 15, 2012

  • Pavan K.

    Wan, I am waiting for someone to share a room with. In any case, I ll book in 2-3 days.

    April 11, 2012

  • Daphne

    Good idea, Wan. Guys book your tickets soon. If you book too late you may end up paying A lot. I temporarily booked a room with Casa Fina in Pantai Cenang. As that hotel is in high demand n great value. I may look at a couple
    Others.

    April 11, 2012

  • Jun

    Hi all, I've moved everyone to the waiting list . once you have booked yr tickets, pls shout out here. you will then be move back to the confirm list. This is to assist the planning . Btw, I still keeping the group to max 8 pax. Regards

    April 11, 2012

  • Daphne

    Haha. Agree, Wan. We are not sure how many have bought tickets. Could we have a shout out how many? I'd rather meet when a sizeable number have bought tickets.

    April 11, 2012

  • selene

    April 11, 2012

  • Daphne

    April 11, 2012

  • selene

    April 11, 2012

  • Daphne

    Should we meet this weekend to discuss? Wan, are you free on Sunday? The hotels (cheap and clean ones) get booked earlier. Perhaps we can also share ideas what to do

    April 11, 2012

  • Pavan K.

    I m looking for someone to share the room with. Anyone planning to join?

    April 11, 2012

  • Daphne

    Are we booking hotels soon? I may just get a room to myself if no one's coming with my timings. But I want to ideally stay in the same area / hotel.

    April 10, 2012

  • Daphne

    Amala! Let me know if you push through with the SilkAir flight. Happy to share a room.

    April 8, 2012

  • Fazil

    April 5, 2012

  • AmaLa P.

    This sounds ok since it's on the weekend, will book my flight tomorrow, I'll probably join yours Daphney. Lets decide on accomodation and all soon. Or let's meet up?

    April 5, 2012

  • Daphne

    I'll post here once I've done my research :)

    April 5, 2012

  • Daphne

    Hi Wan!

    Silk Air
    Friday leaving SG 630 pm

    Sunday leaving Langkawi 8pm I think

    In terms of activities, I am more keen on beach n island hopping. What's skypark? I also heard you cam feed eagles. I'm not keen in just driving around as I'm only there for two days and the first time I was in Langkawi I wasn't able to do much. Please let me know the plans. Either I join some part of it or join for dinner. I'll also post my plan here after I do my research.

    April 5, 2012

  • Catherine

    Wan, if fly air asia, take 0.5 leave or 1.5 day leave if flying on sat and back on mon?

    April 5, 2012

  • Jun

    Shout out upon booking yr tickets!
    We'll do some booking soon so to get better price!

    So far, Daphne & I are ready to go :)

    April 5, 2012

  • Jun

    Daphne, what's yr itinerary like?

    April 5, 2012

  • Jun

    @ Chia GS,
    I've no fix plan currently.
    As mention in the intro, we'll likely go with the flow.
    hence, expect possible last min changes and getting lost in the island. Sky Park is a must for me... otherwise all else are easy.
    This is NOT a physically demanding trip.
    Let's do it in the most relax way :D

    April 5, 2012

  • Jun

    Hey guys, Thanks for yr interest!

    my itinerary as follow:
    Returned via Air Asia, Departure from Changi : 7 july (sat) Flight AK 5343 @ 1055

    Departure from Langkawi: 10 july (mon) Flight AK 5342 @ 0855

    I'm cool if you want extend your trip.
    However, prefer all to arrive on the same day to make planning easier. For those who are ready to commit, do book your ticket early.
    There is an airasia promo on currently. This trip requires 1 ½ day leaves.

    April 5, 2012

  • Chia G S

    Hi, what is the plan like ? is it still 4D/3N? what do you mean by "stronge sense of adventure" ? Is it gonna be physically demanding? hahaha..... :D
