Langkawi is popular with newlyweds and families for a reason; it’s simply stunning. But it’s also popular with the backpackers too as there is cheap accommodation and food available.
How to get there:
Some people choose to fly to Langkawi but it’s just as easy to get the ferry for 70 ringgits from a variety of ports.
What to see and do there:
Chilling out on Pentai Cenang beach
Boat tours to Island hop
Langkawi Cable Car
Lilim Karst Geo forest park
renting a motorbike or moped and ride around the island
If you’re looking for a relaxing destination then this is the place to be in Malaysia. The beach and beach houses look like they’re straight out of a travel brochure filled with luxury and romance.
I spent the majority of my time on Pentai Cenang beach shaded under the most fabulous tree that I have ever seen. It was a beautiful place to sit, relax and reflect on how wonderful my journey has been so far. It was so easy to forget about “to-do” lists and organising my next destination that I forced myself to think about how strange it will be to go back to work in a months time and not have these fabulous destinations within an arms reach... And although leaving this all behind will be sad a large part of me can’t wait to get back and start working, the idea of having routines again was a warming thought.
