Capturing Hidden Beauty Of Kuala Lumpur

When it comes to photography, I do not have any specific agenda. I do not have any specific rule. I just keep clicking as long as the subject appeals to me. Some turn out to be good, while some bad. How about you ? Do you follow certain rules to get a perfect shot ? These images were from my earlier trip to Kuala Lumpur. Currently, I am using Canon 750D and Mi A3. How about you ?

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.

Vibrant Penang – Part 1

Penang Island’s George Town is probably the most vibrant city of Malayisa. A trip to Malaysia is incomplete without a visit to George Town. This capital city is home to hundreds of cute cafes, bars and restaurants. Famous for its unique street food, George Town has been inscribed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. And this is where you will find a lot of graffiti and murals, which lure thousands of travelers to this city. And to be honest, I explored the city randomly. Beer and street food made the trip memorable. Have you been to this part of Malaysia ?

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.

IMG_20191014_155757

IMG_20191014_155909

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.
