Things to do in Langkawi -Top 5 paths to a memorable vacation

Langkawi is a beautiful spot in Malaysia that is high in the list of naturally alluring spots. But things to do here is not limited to mere sightseeing.


Scuba diving

To look at Langkawi, you might not realize that the world above water could be hiding an equally astonishing sight below the surface as well. But one scuba diving trip will prove you wrong. The best place to try scuba diving is at Pulau Payar. It is essentially a marine park that allows its guests to dive right in and observe the marine life of Langkawi at close quarters. Schools of cod, barracuda, snappers, as well as manta rays, will greet you as you take the plunge. You will have to take a speed boat or a catamaran to get to the island of Pulau Payar, and there are packages that include transfer, entrance fee, meals, and diving equipment as well. You can make inquiries about these packages from any one of the Langkawi resorts.


Island Hopping

Island hopping at Langkawi revolves around three main islands or islets: Pregnant Maiden Lake, locally known as "Tasik Dayang Bunting"; Wet Rice Island, locally known as "Pulau Beras Basah"; and Singa Besar Island. Each of the islands offers a different experience for the visitor, ranging from fresh water swimming to paddle boating to sunbathing to snorkelling to eagle feeding. The uniqueness of each island will show you how diverse Langkawi truly is. The tours are usually scheduled for half a day. Prominent hotels in the area like Berjaya Langkawi Resort facilitate island hopping, making it easily accessible.


Sunset Cruise

What better way to have a memorable vacation than to sail into the sunset with the one you love? There are many cruises arranged by different companies in Langkawi, but the one tour not to miss is the sunset tour. It is popular among lovers and honeymooners and usually involves an elegant dinner in one of the deserted islands in the area. Cruising through the sensuous sway of ocean waves, dining under a canopy of stars, this is a picture perfect opportunity to create lasting memories. The cruises are usually arranged for a group of people. However, personal sunset cruises can be arranged at a higher cost if you wish to have more privacy.


Spa Treatment

You are on vacation; you deserve a bit of pampering. There is a number of reputed spas in Langkawi, each with licensed and experienced masseurs. The massages available here span a wide range, including Swedish, Turkish, Chinese, Malay, Ayurveda, and of course Indonesian. You could opt for a short foot rub or a full body massage that would last for three hours. Whichever the massage you choose, make sure that the spa you opt for is one that is reputed and licensed.


Horseback Riding

An innovative way to explore the nooks and crannies of Langkawi, you could saddle up a magnificent beast and set off to the wild in Old England style. There are horseback excursions organized to waterfalls as well as mountains. While you can explore these attractions on foot, doing so on horseback adds a whole new dimension to the experience.
