Sightseeing in Langkawi
The east coast of Pulau Langkawi (Langkawi Island) is fringed by dense mangrove swamps and limestone hills and it is worth experiencing a river tour topped off by “feeding the eagles”. Scores of red eagles swoop down to claim their prize and it is a sight to behold. Canopy or air trekking is another unique experience which involves abseiling or rappelling and generally hanging from high branches up in the forest canopy is catching on. And in Pulau Payar Marine Park 30km south of Langkawi, you can dive in gin-blue waters, snorkel and actually feed sharks – well, okay, baby sharks.

Up in the cool highlands of Mt Gunung Raya smack at the centre of Langkawi, hornbills can be occasionally sighted. Another day excursion is island hopping to Pulau Dayang Bunting, the Island of the Pregnant Maiden. It is a 15-minute boat trip from Langkawi.
The highlight here is a cave haunted by a fearsome banshee, and Tasik Dayang Bunting, a freshwater lake that apparently bestows the gift of children to barren women who drink from it.

For the fabulous views, hitch a ride up the 708m Mt Mat Cincang on the Langkawi Cable Car from Oriental Village. Or walk up to one of the three waterfalls – Telaga Tujuh (Seven Wells), Air Terjun Temurun, or Durian Falls (dry season though, there won’t be much water). Budding equestrians and children can trot off horseback through forests and villages.

And golfers can check in at the stunning Datai Bay Golf Club, Gunung Raya Golf Resort, or the unpretentious home-grown Langkawi Golf Club

The best recommendation would be to go for a half day or full day private tour of the sights with a vehicle and driver / guide at your disposal. This allows you to choose the places you want to go to and those you can give a miss. Consult with the guide as to how best to optimise your tour.

Another excellent option would to go for a Island Hopping Tour and to go for a sunset dinner or cocktail cruise to top off an evening of leisure.
