During our Koh Lipe, Thailand trip, we spent two days in Langkawi, Malaysia: one night before flying and one right after. Our first day / night in Langkawi was a flight from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Once we got to our hotel, we ventured off to get some seafood we had been craving for a while! Even though I have been living in Korea, finding good and not overly expensive crab has been a mission and a half, so I knew coming to Langkawi, we needed to get some! Louis was in the same boat. So seafood craze, be gone! Our meal was delicious with some fresh crab, mixed meat pot, and some eggs (he knows me so well). It was nice to enjoy some dining outdoors and breathe in that fresh, humid breeze. I was really missing that as Korea has quite a bit of pollution and dryness at times (especially with it being winter). After our delicious meal, we walked along a beach as nightlife was prevalent in these areas. We wandered upon some fire dancers, bars, and just people playing games or walking along the beach. It was the perfect ‘summer night’ you could imagine. 🙂
The next day, we arrived at the ferry port to get to Koh Lipe, Thailand, which you can read about here. Once we came back to Langkawi, we hired a car to get us around the island, which was convenient and highly recommended. Since we only spent nearly two days on this island, we wanted to make the most of it. Seeing the Langkawi sky bridge was especially on my list of things to see, so we decided to go there first. The area was really nice and looked very new and well-kept. This is where I had a lot of fun feeding some koi fish, which is one of my favorite things to do. I don’t know why, it just always is! 🙂
We needed to get up through cable cars, so that is just what we did. The views were amazing:
Beautiful sights, aye? The mist really added to it and yes, we did walk onto that bridge! Although a little scary, it was still a fun experience. A little touristy, but I’m kind of a sucker for tourist spots to be honest hehe. This was Louis’ second or third time visiting this bridge so this was old news for him. 😉 He still enjoyed it though!
Our last stop before takeoff (to Penang, Malaysia) was spent in a square where there is a famous eagle. I’m not sure what it resembles but I know in America, eagles resemble freedom. 😀 I can’t say if it’s the same for Langkawi, Malaysia, so don’t quote me!
Unfortunately, we got caught in some rain. Imagine that, being in a tropical country / island. 😉
The eagle is quite huge and I’m glad I got a few snapshots. No need to spend a lot of time here, although if it wasn’t raining, I’m sure we would have walked around as there are some buildings and open space (I mean, it is a square). Overall, our trip to Langkawi was great and like most places we have been to, we recommend this island as well. 🙂
