Sightseeing in Langkawi

The east coast 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 trekking 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 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
