Langkawi Island

Langkawi is a tropical island known as ‘Langkawi,The Jewel of Kedah’ (Langkawi Permata Kedah) which is 01 hour away from Kuala Lumpur city by air. This tropical paradise is a combination of small 99 islands and it has been duty free since 1987 and pulling in tourist in huge numbers.

According to one interpretation Langkawi means the island of reddish-brown eagle which is a symbol you will find as you enter this beautiful island.

Things to do in Langkawi 

01.Sky Cab Langkawi

sky cab gives you more than one unique experience hovering over the jungle and climbing over 550 million old rock. It is scarey and in the same time it’s super exciting but not for the faint hearted though.

Skycab gives you a 360 panorama view of the thick green forest and the sea line. It stretched up to 1700 meters from the main base and it will only take 05 to 07 minutes approximately to reach the cliff of the mountain.

02. Sky Bridge Langkawi

Bridge was completed in 2004 and awarded as the ‘Worlds Most Spectacular Pedestrian Bridge’ by 2013 traveler’s choice. The structure rank among the worlds largest curve suspension bridge and all parts were carried using a helicopter to assemble on top which I find as freaking Awesome !!.

Best time to visit here by  bit morning and not by afternoon since it will get little over crowded by that time, evening would be totally perfect to spend some time with the loved ones and catch the beautiful sunset over the andaman sea.

03. Crocodile Adventure Land

Adventure land is 10 minutes driving distance away from the skycab car park and it has several kinds of crocs around. Everything was well presented and laid out within a fairly compact area and not too much walking to do.You can take a quick snap with a 02 year old baby crocodile and make sure you dont harm any wild animals.

You can feed all cages using crocodile pallets for RM 05 and crocodile feeding show is one of the best things you should never miss at this place.

04. Island Hopping

This probably the most popular thing to do in this beautiful island starting from 09am every day and because of high demand only tour guides use to provide services. you can find a tour guide near the brown eagle landmark near the harbour or from the hotel you stay.

boat departs with a group of 08 to 10 people and head to an island where all tourist can do plenty of activites including swimming with a scenic view,snorkeling or lounging and sunbathing.

05. Eagle Feeding

It is a part of the island hopping tour but I believe its the most amazing experience of the day and added a one more life experience. Boat owner adds chicken parts and skin to the water and from instant seconds all the majestic eagle’s will start flying over you arrange your cameras for some outstanding picture’s and dont miss the chance.

06. Pulau Dayang Bunting (Lake of Pregnant Woman)

The lake was formed when a large underwater cave collapsed many years back, and the name was given as the Lake of Pregnant Woman since the little mountain covered with the dense forest take a shape of a pregnant lady.

07. Underwater World Langkawi

Spread across nearly 06 acres and one of the best never missed location in langkawi. The comples is divided into three sections : Tropical Rainforest, Temperature and Sub Antartic from them all my favourite will be the sub antartic where all the little penguins live and people gather around to snap a good picture

Kuala Lumpur

As we see this name most of us think only about shopping, but today I’m trying to show around some beautiful places you should visit while on your stay in Kuala Lumpur. Malaysia is a country you will find all kind of races and nationals lives in harmony and think only about their development and enjoy it.

Arriving to Kuala Lumpur

After collecting our bags the only question I had is how am I going to reach the city ? since I felt airport pickup is really expensive which was provided by the hotel. So we decided to check around in the premises for the cheapest transportation cos I dont wanna break my bank as I arrived.

  • KLIA Ekspres – fastest way to get into the airport in a luxury bullet train which reach the city with-in just 28 minutes. It cost RM55 per person in a one way trip and RM100 per person return ticket. not ideal for a family going for a vacation
  • Taxi or Limousine services – If you planning to get into the city in a fancy way this might suit you well, It takes around 25-30 minutes with no traffic to reach the city and it will cost around RM54.96 for the ride. If you are a group or bunch of friends traveling together taxi might help you since you share the price.
  • Bus –  there’s two bus services one is Airport Coaches which cost you the same price of a taxi ride to the city, But if you take the normal bus transportation from the KLIA airport it will cost you RM10 per person. It’s cheap and safe to travel. Takes minimum 60 – 80 minutes to reach the city.

Things to do in Kuala Lumpur

Petronas Tower

Most of us travel to KL only to snap a great pic of this great twin towers but believe me there’s alot to amaze us in KL, We took a metro to KLCC station which way faster than a taxi ride I’d say.

The first impression on the twin towers is just ‘WOOW’ the architecture and all is pretty amazing, so when ever you want to take a good snap dont let the vendors outside to do it for you since they request cash from you and no point buying fish eye lenses from them since you can take pretty good pictures just  by walking to the main road and stand in front of the entrance,

 don’t forget to visit the shopping malls inside the tower but believe me you can’t finish everything with in a day

 

KL Tower

One of the highest towers in asia but hidden out from the city and most people tend not to visit this place.You have to grab the tickets outside for the 360 degree spinning restaurent and two decks available in two floors for a Eagle Eye view.This is something I wont mind spending my cash to have a perfect picture of the city

 

China street & Petaling street

If you knew about shopping in Bangkok streets this is one of the best places to grab the eye catching items for a cheap price. well they tend to sell for huge amount if they realize you are a tourist so make sure to ask for ‘DISCOUNTS’

I love experiencing different street foods from each country that I travel and inside KL these streets are the best for exotic and some mouth watering delicious foods which you have to grab before you exit KL.

 

Batu Caves


As usual we found a cheap way to visit Batu caves and that is the metro which take approx around 45 minutes to reach the caves from KL city, Batu caves is some spooky caves which is the home for more rare species and its so beutiful to visit. If you are a enthusiast of nature this is reachable by a cardiac stress test of 272 steps
