1.  Ayer Hangat Village – The Ayer Hangat Village is located 14km north of Kuah Town. What is interesting here would be the three-tiered hot water spring wells which happens to also a natural salt water hot spring which is rare and can be found only in three other countries in the world.

Air Hangat Village comes with an interesting legend of two giants Mat Cincang and Mat Raya who got into an argument during the wedding between their children… the argument turned into a fight and they started throwing pots, pans and jugs towards each other.

It is said that a jug full of boiling hot water fell into this place. As a result a natural hot spring has been formed here and the name to the place given as Air Hangat since Air Hangat when translated means Hot Water.

We got to sit around the hot spring wells and soak our feet with the salted natural hot spring water here, which is said to be rich with mineral content and very effective for healing any skin related problems as well as removing toxins from the body…

2. Kilim Mangrove Tour, Bat Cave and Fish Farm Tour

Being a Malaysian, I have always heard about Kilim Karst Geoforest Park but have not had the chance to visit it until recently…

The huge geopark is almost 100 square kilometres huge and is noteworthy for mangroves, beautiful beaches, and vertical karstic hills sticking out towards the Straits of Melaka and Andaman Sea…

We took a riverboat cruise along Kilim River with an experienced senior tour guide who took us to the Bat Caves where we were amazed to see hundreds of bats dangling upside down in the dark cave and visited a floating fish farm where we got to meet Ali and Abu… errr… who are stingrays and feed and see other fishes..

3. Langkawi Wildlife Park – Being an animal lover, I love this place… you are greeted by gorgeous birds as you stroll through the garden paths and have the opportunity to get close and personal with some of the animals under the rangers supervision such as the python, the raccoon, the brahminy kite as well as budgies and mousedeer..

4. Megawatersports – Before I got here I was just imagining an hour in the sun going around on the jetski and hoping you do not knock into anyone nearby or so… but… boy was I wrong…

20180714_161014-1008x756-997x748

I do not really know how to ride a jetski even if my ex husband was a watersports manager in Penang but lately I am just getting out of my shell and giving most extreme activities a shot, even those Inmight have baulked at 5 years ago…

So anyway, Mega Water Sports offers a unique way of seeing some incredibly beautiful geological formations and amazing shorelines, minus the normal boatload of tourists clamouring for the view… Yes, Mega Water Sports have special tours to accommodate those who prefer to go wide open throttle and just let loose!

We were taken on Tour 2… which was an hour of exploring the Dayang Bunting Island and cruising gently along those incredible limestone islets…

Then we headed to Singa Besar Island where we got to watch those majestic eagles soar and fly… before a quick stop at Beras Basah Island to cool off with a swim before heading back to Cenang Beach….

Mega Water Sports Jet Ski Tours are definitely highly recommended… I cant wait to do it again.. I hope.. hehehe

We got on a van which dropped us at the jetty just behind the Perdana Quay /The Danna Hotel where a speedboat then took us across the sea to party the evening away… The sunset was of course… breathtaking…

6 The Gemalai at Laman Padi – Laman Padi when translated means paddy fields.

In this beautiful place which is very close to the Cenang Beach area, visitors get to soak in a traditional Malay Kampung ambiance with beautiful lush paddy fields…

The Gemalai restaurant serves up a fusion Malay & Western cuisine and well we got to indulge our tastebuds in their signature nasi kukus with beef & chicken rice that came with keropok and salted ducks egg, and soup… delicious !!!!

The hotel is lovely with ornate classical European interior in the lobby area and they even have a super stretch limo parked in front of the hotel but guests will love the spacious rooms and equally spacious bathrooms equipped with built-in bathtubs…
