The Langkawi Skybridge Tour takes you on a cable car ride to the top of Gunung Matchincang. As the gondola-style cab makes its way to the top you can get a bird’s eye view of legendary Langkawi as well as numerous outlying islands in the distance; Oriental Village, the home of the cable car, is a great place to visit. The mini town – situated at the base of the geo-park’s mountain range – has more than a few attractions; the tour continues on past Telaga Tujuh – also known as the Seven Wells waterfalls – before heading on over to the Taman Buaya Langkawi – the Langkawi Crocodile Farm – where you can watch keepers wrestling with these leathery beasts.
After that, soak up the sun at ‘Pantai Pasir Hitam’ – known as Black Sand Beach; this shoreline is distinctive due to its almost opaque black sand. End your day with a relaxing visit to the Langkawi Wildlife Park set amidst a natural rainforest and featuring an exotic array of Langkawi’s furry and feathered friends.
Langkawi Island Hopping & Eagle Feeding
Langkawi can best be described as an archipelago of 99 islands that range in size. Dominated by Langkawi Island – the main island is the key entry point into Langkawi and home to most of Langkawi’s businesses, hotels, resorts, restaurants and attractions.
Yet it is Langkawi’s outlying islets that have some of the most unique and mystical attractions and the Langkawi Island Hopping & Eagle Feeding Tour is one of the best ways to experience it. The day starts out with an hour-long visit to Pulau Beras Basah; relax and soak up the sun on the white sand beach, rent a banana boat and splash around in the turquoise-blue waters or have a makeshift picnic under the shady grove of trees.
Next the boat heads on over to Pulau Singa Besar; stopping just shy of its shores, you’ll get to see eagles leaving their aeries to circle the skies. It’s a great photo stop opportunity as they descend with deadly precision to catch their prey – chicken bits that the boat driver has thrown into the water! The last stop on the tour is Pulau Dayang Bunting; a clearly marked path heading inland leads you to its star attraction – the allegedly magical Pregnant Maiden Lake.
Langkawi Caves & Mangroves Tour
Much like the Eagle Feeding & Mangrove Tour, the Caves & Mangroves Tour is a memorable journey to visit a mangrove swamp. The excursion allows you to observe the ecology of the area and the surrounding environment and is a good way to gain insight into Langkawi’s lush natural ecology. The day kicks off with a visit to the caves of the Kilim Nature Park which feature a beautiful mix of well-protected green mangrove forests, remote beaches and secreted lagoons. The boat ride along the way is a quiet and beautifully haunting experience as you leave the crowds at the jetty and head into the relative silence of the mangrove swamp.
The tour continues with a visit to Gua Kelawar – the Bat Cave. It is steeped in tales of romance and intrigue that the tour guide will happily recount while you survey the caves. The boat cruises along a snaking river to get to this yawning cave so you’ll get to see scenic views along the way. Next, watch as eagles circle the skies nearby their aeries; watch as they plunge to seize their food for the day – chicken bits tossed into the waters by the boat driver. The day winds down with a chance to observe an open-sea fish feeding farm and marvel at the huge captive-bred fishes.
Langkawi Underwater World Tour
Langkawi, Malaysia’s most tourist-visited destination, is an island saturated in verdure and surrounded by teal-blue waters. It is home to an abundance of natural as well as manmade attractions. The Langkawi Underwater World Tour takes you on a journey to visit some of the island’s most popular sightseeing attractions. The day begins with a visit to the Atma Alam Batik Art Village, which houses a collection of fine silk Batik creations as well as showcasing its painting and dyeing techniques.
Later proceed to the sprawling 19-acre Eagle Square – Langkawi’s token landmark – where you can take plenty of pictures as well as indulge in some bargain hunting from nearby vendors at the Jetty Point. The next stop on the itinerary is Mahsuri’s Tomb before heading on over to Kuah Town for some duty-free shopping – be sure to get your hands on plenty of duty-free chocolates, liquor and perfumes. The tour wraps up with a visit to Underwater World – home to a diverse range of sea creatures including the giant green turtle. This manmade tourist attraction is one of the biggest aquatic and freshwater aquaria in Southeast Asia.
