    Waterfalls, a la natural

    TELAGA TUJUH waterfall.

    Remember to rent a motorbike to explore this little island. There are few water falls in this island. The one worth exploring would be TELAGA TUJUH. it is sited in the north-western corner of Pulau Langkawi, so named because its cascading waters is broken by a series of seven natural pools. The surrounding lush green forest of the waterfall adds a mystical touch to the natural splendour.

    Remember to bring your swimsuit!!

    Mangrove Swamp Canoe Adventure 3

    Peter getting all animated.

    During the course of this canoeing trip, Peter explains the special features, phenomenons and animals/insects which we come across as we paddle along the great swamp. Becareful about the tides because we got ourselves lost for a bit when we lost the water channel due to the rising tide as the afternoon drew on.

    Mangrove Swamp Canoe Adventure 2

    We're ready for more action!

    We're all ready to go! Hats - checked! Sunblock - checked! Sunnies - checked! Water bottle - checked! Oars - checked! Hehe This is it! This is the mangrove swamp in the northern side of Langkawi. It was tiring but definitely worth all the exertion. You think I will develope fantastic biceps after 5 hours of oaring on this canoe? Hmmm... On the way we managed to see the feeding of the eagles. Wicked!

    Peter, the guy in action in the pic below, was our tour guide for this eco-adventure. We went by boat to the fish farm where our canoes were waiting for us. Peter tells us about the history of the ecology in Langkawi. Also about what to expect, tips & warning when we go on our canoes later.

    Rice paddies

    by alisonr Written Sep 5, 2002

    Not really off the beaten path, as they are everywhere! The rice paddies and landscape are just beautiful. The day we were there it rained and little and then beautiful sun shine, which made them look even more spectacular.

    Summer Palace

    Built as a film set for 'Anna and the King', it is a bit of a tourist trap but worth stopping to have a look at if you are passing.

    On our bus drive we went past traditional houses, which are a lot different to mine at home. I love seeing the way the locals live.
