Mar 14, 2018 Top Things to do in Langkawi Malaysia
If you make it over to Singapore I would highly recommend taking an hour flight over to Malaysia to the island Langkowi. We spent five days there with our 3 kids ages 6, 4, and 1. You can watch our video HERE. Three to four days would be plenty of time to enjoy and explore this gorgeous island. Here are my top recommendations of what to see and do on the island.
The island is a jungle. With monkeys swinging in the trees and toucans flying overhead. Making it warm and humid. You can barely tell the difference between the water temperature and the air temperature during their summer. The locals are respectful and easy going.
This is known as the world’s longest free span mono cable car. It takes you over the beautiful jungle of the island stopping at a mid station and a top station. Each station gives you a panoramic view of the island and southern Thailand in the distance. At the top viewing station you can then purchase a ticket to walk across a spectacular suspension bridge! A basic ticket includes a ride in the sky cab, 3D art museum, and a T-Rex ride. The T- Rex ride is a pass in my opinion but the 3D art museum and Sky Cab are great!
At the top of the Gondola ride you can purchase tickets to walk across the Sky Bridge. It is one of the world’s biggest curved suspension bridges that give you sweeping views of the whole island. Not for those with an extreme fear of heights though, especially because there are sections of the bridge floor that are clear so you can see down to the valley floor. It is very easy walking for kids, no stroller or baby carrier necessary and is well worth the experience.
Boat Tour from Tanjung Rhu Beach
This is a 3 hour boat tour that includes bat caves, fish farms, eagle feeding, Mangrove sightseeing, crocodile cave, and swimming at an island beach. There are a lot of companies that offer this tour. You don’t have to schedule ahead of time. You can just show up and go. Our kids LOVED this experience. From bats, sharks, monkeys in trees, and swimming they thought they had gone to heaven. I am not going to lie I thoroughly enjoyed the experience just as much as my 4 and 6 year old.
