Our backpacking trip around Malaysia, saw us ending the stint…. sunbathing, boozing and mangrove trekking in Langkawi.
Langkawi which is part of the Andaman islands is famous for its brilliantly crystal clear waters which are theming with fishes of all sorts.
Apart from taking our own leisure time, waking up at 11am, having a late breakfast, read a book while we sip duty free ice wine, we decided to go for some tours to fill in our time.
There are plenty of tour agents around. I guess, its really up to you guys, to see which is the best bargain. From what we noticed is that, the tour agents at the Jetty and Airport are definitely not the best on the island. Because they have the first hand advantage of, first approaching the “just arrived tourist”, therefore they can charge a premium because the tourist is not familiar with the prices of tours, hotels and car rental on the island.
If you haven’t booked anything yet, here the tours offered by AB motel is something for you to read about. They already have the “Cheapest Island Hopping Tours on the Island” =3 islands for RM 25 including hotel transfer. They can afford to lower the price because they are using their own tour boat, instead of renting it from the boat men. Hence the lower price.
Here are a few water sports we got from AB motel, where we were staying.
The Island Hopping tour was worth it, we were picked up from our hotel in the morning, and was whisked by speed boat to see how they feed the eagles. Then we were left for one hour on a deserted island for some RnR. We then headed to the Pregnant Maidens Lake to dip. (Nope, we didn’t get pregnant). Legend has it that who ever dips in the lake will be enchanted and pregnant.
