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.

Langkawi’s Lesser Known Beach – Pasir Tengkorak

Who does not need sun, sand and water during vacation? Well, during a short trip to Langkawi, I was heavily recommended to visit Pasir Tengkorak Beach by cab drivers as well hostel staff. And I was glad that I listened to their advice.

When I reached the place, there were only three people on the beach. Just imagine. Crystal clear water and white sand beach welcomed me. I embraced the nature with a broad smile. It was pure and pristine.

Surrounded by a forested area, this beach is definitely suitable for swimming. To reach this place you have to use your own vehicle.

I used Grab app (Quite popular in South-East Asia) to reach the place. While leaving the beach I faced much problem while booking a cab as this beach . However, after few minutes of struggle, one cab driver came to pick me up. Also, keep in mind this place has no facilities.

When Your Buddy Turns Model

Undoubtedly, travelling with your close pals can make your trip more memorable and hassle-free. Me and my friend Anjana Singh recently visited Malaysia and covered three cities – Kuala Lumpur, Langkawi and Penang. Not much of a planning was done beforehand, and off the eight-day trip, we actually had just six days on our hands as we had some office work to finish.
Nonetheless, the trip turned out to be fantabulous. We indulged in a lot of adventure activities, including Go-Karting, and relished Malayisa’s famous mouthwatering street foods.
I also managed to make some interesting pictures, thanks to the beautiful streets, colorful walls, vibrant backgrounds, the amazing street-arts of Penang and my buddy-cum-model – Anjana.
As I go through some of Anjana’s photos that I made, I feel that she is a natural model. I find her pictures simple, yet very graceful. Tell me, how do you enjoy your trips with your close pals? Do you have some unique memories ? Do share with me. I would love to hear from you.
