Overall, Langkawi provides a family-friendly choice to Thai locations such as Phuket and Koh Samui.

My to do List


There’s so many to see and to do in Langkawi; diving and snorkeling in a primitive H2O filled with abounding sea life tops a list for many people.

Beware of intelligent furious monkeys. Those during Tengkorak beach conflict humans who have food.

Jelly fishes are also apropos increasingly prevalent and have caused during slightest one genocide – a Swedish traveller in early 2010. Do not float during night or when we have been drinking.

Don’t attend in certain activities such as eagle feeding and gorilla feeding as this harms a animals by encouranging them to turn reliant on tourists and we might give them a wrong food.

Beware of restaurants revelation we that they usually have a bigger distance lobsters or crabs available, as that is what they tell everyone. When your lobster or crab is served, we will learn that we will really be profitable for 900g of bombard instead of meat!
