My Precious Moments In Langkawi

Visit to Langkawi is incomplete without a trip to the famous Sky Bridge. This was exactly what I felt when I reached there. Situated at 660 metres above sea level at the peak of Gunung Mat Cincang on Pulau Langkawi, this spectacular bridge, surrounded by vast and thick forests, is 125 metres long, and 1.8 metres wide.
Visitors first have to take the Langkawi Cable Car to the top station and then they are required to use an inclined lift called SkyGlide to reach the bridge.
It is believed that around USD 1.2 million was spent on the construction of the mega structure, which is suspended by eight cables from an 81.5m high single pylon. I spent around two hours there due to
Me and my friend hired a taxi from our hostel to reach this place, using Malaysia’s popular taxi sharing app Grab.

A Relaxing Getaway In Hua Hin

Thailand’s Hua Hin is famous for its laid-back culture, something which even I felt when I landed there after a three-hour journey from Bangkok. I wanted to spend some quality time there but I had very little time on my hands to relax.


After enjoying Hua Hin’s famous sandy beaches, I headed to Khao Takiab, courtesy Google map. Khao Takiab is a small village quite famous for seaside restaurants and pretty beaches that include Hat Takiap, Suan Son and Khao Tao.



On top of Khao Takiab hill, one can enjoy monkey mountain or Chopstick hill where Wat Khao Lad temple is situated. It is popularly known as the monkey temple because many monkeys inhabit the place. On your way to the hill, you will come across a huge and impressive 20 metre high Buddha statue overlooking the sea. Using staircase one can easily reach the mountain.



The top of the mountain offers breathtaking panoramic views of the Gulf of Thailand. From Hua Hin, Khao Takiab can be easily and quickly reached. I hired a tuk tuk from the downtown Hua Hin to reach there. Have you been to Hua Hin ?

How To Explore Mandalay’s Impressive Monasteries

Some of Mandalay’s best known pagodas are situated close to each other, which I was not aware of.

I hired a local guy to show me some of the well-known monuments in the area, but later on I realized that if I knew how to drive, I could have easily explored the place without any assistance.

One of the monuments, which we saw was Shwenandaw Monastery.



It’s impressive architectural beauty blew my mind. Built in 1878 by King Thibaw Min, this monastery is best known for its teak carvings of Buddhist myths.


The traditional Burmese architectural style is quite pervasive in the monastery, which is also known as Golden Palace Monastery, because it used to be a part of the Mandalay Royal Palace.







After Shwenandaw, we moved to Atumashi Monastery, which was built in 1857 by King Mindon at a cost of 500,000 rupees.








Considered to be one of Southeast Asia’s most impressive buildings, the monastery is surrounded by five graduated rectangular terraces.

The Atumashi Kyaung is located near the Kuthodaw Pagoda.
