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.

A Quick Getaway To Fort Kochi

Fort Kochi is known for its enchanting beauty. I completely fell in love with the place during my short trip in September. You can either hire a bicycle or motorbike to explore the place but I covered most of the tourists spots by walking as the weather was pleasant. Due to off season the places were not swarmed with tourists and their large selfie-sticks, which helped me enjoy the place without any deviations.
In Fort Kochi, I stayed in Crystal Maze Homestay which I highly recommend to include in your itinerary. But for those who are planning to pick some local artifacts I suggest not to visit in September as most of the shops were closed due to off season.

Make sure you visit both the temple and the museum. It is really worth it.

I skipped many other tourist spots due to lack of time. Hopefully, next time I will be able to cover them all.

Interesting Places Of Kanchanaburi

My visit to Kanchanaburi was short yet memorable. Situated at the confluence of the rivers Kwai Noi and Kwai Yai, Kanchanaburi has many interesting places to explore only if you have time. As I ran short of time, I could visit only two places of interest (apart from Erawan National Park) – the Bridge over the River Kwai and Kanchanaburi War Cemetery.

The Bridge over the River Kwai is hugely popular among visitors. The Bridge over the Mae Klong was part of the Death Railway. It was built by the Japanese during WWII with the help of prisoners and slave laborers. Japan built the Burma Railway (also known as the Death Railway) to support its forces in the Burma campaign of WWII.

Kanchanaburi War Cemetery was another place which I explored on foot as it was close to my guesthouse. It was dedicated to victims of Japanese imprisonment while building the Burma Railway. It was designed by Colin St Clair Oakes. More than 6,000 prisoners of war are buried there. The place makes you realize the dark side of history.
