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.

Dataran Lang (Eagle Square) – A Photo Essay

A trip to Langkawi is incomplete without a visit to hugely popular Dataran Lang (also known as Eagle Square), a man-made structure.

Situated at the southeast corner of Pulau Langkawi, the 12 meter-tall statue is bound to take your breath away. The massive eagle sculpture greets everyone who comes to Kuah by ferry. The eagle is the emblem of Langkawi Island. Try to visit the place in the morning or evening as the afternoon sun could make you feel highly uncomfortable. As I was staying in a remote place of Langkawai, I hired a taxi to reach the place.

Hostel Review – Tubotel

During a short getaway to Langalawi, I stayed at a beautiful hostel Tubotel, which was highly recommended by various travel forums. Located on Sungai Chenang (Chenang River), Tubotel provides breathtaking views of sunrise and sunset.

Their barrel-like rooms, made of huge drainage pipes, are vibrant and colorful. As it was off season, I was lucky to get an entire room for myself. Staff there are very courteous and helpful. Tubotel has a full-fledged bar and there is also provision for private rooms. I must say till now, one of the best hostels I have ever stayed.

Langkawi’s Magnificent Seven Wells Waterfall

While holidaying in Langkawi I was advised to visit Seven Wells Waterfall, one of the most picturesque tourist spots of the island. Known locally as Telaga Tujuh, this magnificent waterfall is named after the seven natural pools.

I booked a taxi from my hostel to reach the waterfall, which is situated in Pantai Kok area. It is also close to the Pantai Kok Beach and Oriental Village. One has to climb 638 steps to reach the place. While climbing the steps, one can enjoy the vast rainforest of Mount Mat Cincang. You are bound to see a large number of flora and fauna. I stayed there around one hour and indulged in swimming. It is recommended to be very careful while swimming. Definitely one of my life’s most memorable experiences, which I will cherish forever.
