Beach - Pantai Cenang
The Fishermen's Catch (Langkawi 2005)

In a nutshell
I'll more than recommend Langkawi to anybody who has 4-5 days to spare in Malaysia
Langkawi Cable Car
Closes at 6pm except on Valentine's day (till late: so i was told). Usually will close on heavy rain, but should you get a good day in Langkawi, I would recommend head for the cable car.The ride takes about 15 minutes. There are two stops:1st being the overview deck from a...
Ahhh yes, Happy Hour. Now this is getting your priorities right! Part of a woman's job is to save money on stuff so that there is plenty left for shopping....know what I mean? ;o)So, the first thing you do is to check out when Happy Hour is. The saving over a week should get...
Cable Car and Sky Bridge
Another must do in Langkawi. For those who have fear of heights (I do too!) - don't let the heights fool you. The place is too good to miss because of this fear.For maintenance, the place is frequently closed. So I suggest that you try to do this in your first day so that...

Breakfast Bar: Inexpensive food but - you get what you pay for
One can still enjoy lunch here despite the place being named as "Breakfast Bar". Located on the street side on the beach strech in Cenang Beach, this is a place with very reasonable price for food in Langkawi. We hand fruit platter, cheese omlette, a chicken rice set, 2...
The Cliff Restaurant & Bar: Serenity of Splashing Waves
Situated behind the Langkawi Underwater World, I doubt that I would notice this place if I were to pass by Pantai Cenang by myself -it is not exactly visible from the road side. Nestled just above the rocky cliff by the beach, this would be a good place to just relax and...
Oasis Bar and Restaurant: Dining combined with an Exotic view!
I can speak highly of the Oasis Restaurant.The staff is amazing, and we had daily lunch and dinner the 5 days we were here. The cuisine is good and very cheap. Worth to give it a try!Good service, nice people, western and Indian food. I highly recommend it.
Sheela's: Our selection - Number One
I rank this restaurant best on the area, of course we have to remember that I visited only some twelve others, but we got recommendations and heard the value of the place from other travelers too. I qualify the restaurant local, it is run by a couple (Malaysian-German) who...
Hungry Monkey Cafe, Turkish Delight: Turkish Cousine
We were driving down the main street in Pentai Cenang looking for a place to eat as we were starving. Down the end of the street we turned right towards the Lighthouse Restaurant and on the right hand side of the road I spotted a quaint little restaurant with loads of green...
The Orkid Ria - Pentai Cenang: Fresh Seafood Lovers Paradise!
You can't miss this restaurant as it is in the main shopping street of Pentai Cenang and is the one with the most people in and a huge fish tank out the front with a ton of Cray Fish (Lobster).This one was hubby's favourite so we went back again. The owner recognised us and...
The Lighthouse Restaurant Langkawi: Beach Restaurant Cenang
I had added this restaurant to my Trip Planner here on vt so I knew about it before we arrived. Trip Advisor gives this restaurant a 4 out of 5. The reviews are pretty accurate. If you want to eat at a place that is right on the beach, then this restaurant is the place to...
Seashell Beach Restaurant Mutiara Bay Resort: Right on the beach
After sightseeing every day and driving around the Island, we looked forward to winding down at the beach bar with a Happy Hour Coctail or two and then dining at Seashell Restaurant right on the beach.They had a wide variety of food and you couldn't complain as it was cooked...
AIR ASIA GO CHEAP !
I went to Langkawi through Air Asia one of the cheapest and easiest way to get there from Kuala Lumpur it cost only $ 55/- per person. The service was good and the flight was of 45 minutes you have to purchase the food but the staff has to rush due to the short time....
Flight options from KL to Langkawi
You can fly KUL - LGK or from SZB - LGK. These are much better options than trying to go to Langkawi overland from Kuala Lumpur (it takes too much time and involves too much hassle). If you book your flight online, as early as possible, you would get the best prices.Fly from...
Swim in Pantai Cenang
Boat and Jetski in Pantai Cenang. They operate close to the beach, don´t care about swimmers.This morning, a boat towing a banana past me twice when I swam in front of Melati Tanjung.It came very close, so I turnt and just before I reached the shore, it came again with power...
MOST IMPORTANT "T-SHIRTS AND BERMUDA SHORTS ONLY"
Backpacks are most comfortable, if not do take suitcases with strong wheels.
The most comfortable and easy to wear clothing in Langkawi is T-shirts and Bermuda Shorts as you don't need to iron them and the require less space too and of course joggers.
Go bird watching - alone or in tours
Take your camera and start hunting. There are a lot of birds in your hotel and beach area, it's easy to start and you get some practice for worse circumstances. As you can see, I am not pro and this trip was my first with this camera and all setups were not familiar to me....
Langkawi - Duty Free Island
The whole of Langkawi, like many islands in Malaysia, is duty free. Being duty free, beer is cheap in town. We kept this in mind and bought our beers in town and took them back to our accommodation rather than drink them at the hotel which would cost more than double the...
Huge Eagle - Main Langkawi Attraction
The main attraction of Pulau Langkawi is a huge eagle located near Kuha Jetty. I just managed to get a quick snap as we came off the ferry from Pulau Payer.The name Langkawi comes from the eagle "helang" and "kawi" which means reddish brown. Langkawi is home of a numerous...
