Langkawi Beaches

There are several beaches on Langkawi, mostly located in the south, west and north of the island. Although many hotels are partly laid out right down to the beach, every beach is public by law. In the following article we show you the most beautiful beaches on Langkawi.

Langkawi: Mount Raya

Eigentlich nur aufgrund eines Geocaches vom Typ "Earthcache" fuhren wir auf den 890 m hohen Gunung Raya. Der Gunung Raya ist der höchste Berg auf der malaysischen Insel Langkawi. Schon der 20 Minuten lange Serpentinen-Weg hinauf bot allerlei Attraktionen am Straßenrand: Kühe, Affen, Leguane und dazu der tiefgrüne Dschungel links und rechts. Wirklich toll!

Panorama of Langkawi: Cable Car und Sky Bridge

Panorama Langkawi or Langkawi Sky Cab has been the tourist highlight of the island since it opened in 2002. A more than 2 km long cable car takes you up to the dizzy heights of Gunung Machinchang. The view from Machinchang Mountain is unique. When the weather is clear, you can see untouched nature for a few kilometers.

With the rental car on the way to Langkawi

Since we wanted to explore the island on our own, we absolutely needed a rental car in Langkawi. From our hotel, The Danna Langkawi, we were driven to the airport. In the arrivals hall, I immediately went in search of the big companies in the industry. But I could have saved myself the time - Avis, Budget, Hertz and Co. are not represented here.

Mulu Canopy Skywalk

Before our time in the jungle was up, the Mulu Canopy Skywalk was still on our agenda. This 480 meter long and 15 to 25 meter high path leads over suspension bridges through the treetops of the rainforest.
