The Langkawi Island Hopping

We joined an island hopping tour during our most recent Langkawi trip in June. We purchased the package at the airport. The cost is RM300 for one whole boat. I always wanted all of us to try going out the sea but the plan never come true. Finally this round we get to go out to the sea with adults, kids and old folks. Nothing to shout about island hopping but just want all of them to experience it. Me myself went for the island hopping on my very first trip to Langkawi with my classmates which was about 10 years ago.

My anak :)

This was the kind of boats taking the visitors out for island hopping :)

So was the boat ride shiok?? Haha, Kids love it I would say, especially Heng Heng :)

My mom claimed the boat was speeding and she said no NEXT TIME!! Too dangerous wor.. Actually we all wore life jackets and nothing to be worried.

Yan Yan need to wear my shade as the wind was blowing very strong.

Look at Heng Heng's hair, natural way to set the hair by the wind.

The first stop was Tasik Dayang Bunting.

A lot of monkeys here..

From 'you are here' point trekking up to the lake took us about 20-30 minutes. Walking up the steep and narrow path with two kids tagging along was not easy. I was sweating like crazy but good thing was the kiddos never ask me to carry them. Maybe they have got the monkeys to entertain them all along the way to the lake.

Finally we reached this fresh water lake in the middle of the sea, Lake of the Pregnant Maiden .

Nothing we can do here. For those who are interested in water activity they can paddle the boat or swim in the deep lake. The sun was scorching hot so we left the place and walked back to the jetty.

Lake of the Pregnant Maiden and the paddy boats.

We went on for next stop.

We saw this 'pirate ship'.

Next stop was eagle feeding session or better to be call I as eagle watching.

The boat man threw some fresh meats on the water and there the swarm of eagles would flew near to the water to catch the food.

Another eagle shot.

There is more eagles on the trees.

The sky with eagles.

Heng Heng and daddy. The little one likes to watch the eagles.

The last stop of the trip was Beras Basah Beach. This is another clean and beautiful beach.

Heng Heng fed the fish.

The water is clear and my niece and nephews trying their luck catching small little fish. No fish were caught but they have got some crabs :)

Melissa was trying to catch the fish.

This was all about the half day island hopping trip we had in Langkawi.

RM300 for the whole boat...ok wor. I only enjoyed the eagle feeding part. Pulau Dayang Bunting is a disappointment.

Eagle watching looks interesting. This is a great experience for the kids.

Since I've been to both Langkawi and the east cost, I can say that the beaches in the east coast is very much nicer. The sand is finer... which is why it's easier to build sandcastles there.

I'd like to consider going to Langkawi again one of these days. My last trip has been around 15 yrs ago! I really enjoyed the island hopping. Very shiok! I find the legends on the island very fascinating. Used to enjoy reading about the Mahsuri story in our history books:)
