Langkawi trip

We had pre-planned to go to Langkawi since January this year. However, I didn't really have the mood to go when Eryn was down with fever and Roseola.

The night before we left, her rashes subsided a lot and we headed to Langkawi on the 24th May. We rented a Wira at RM120 for the whole 3 days and stayed at Berjaya Langkawi Beach & Spa resort. It was a wonderful trip for the children and they loved the whole trip, right from the packing of the bags, the wait at the airport, the buggy rides at Berjaya Resort, seeing aeroplanes, boats, yatchs, monkeys, donkeys and the visit to Underwater World, Telaga Tujuh (Seven Wells), the many beaches, the Hot Spring and many other smaller places. Oh, not forgetting the many places to run about, the jumping on the bed, the shower in the bathtub and many more...

Believe it or not, it was actually my first time to Langkawi (how sad....). I didn't expect much out of it but am surprised at the lovely island. I think it must be due to the presence of my children that made me enjoy my stay more than I expected.

We practically drove around the whole Island, my favourite places being the Telaga Tujuh waterfall and the beaches, esp. Datai Bay and Berjaya beach. Too bad we didn't get to reach Telaga Tujuh at the top due to some light drizzle. For batik lovers, shopping at Beras Terbakar (Field of Burnt Rice) is a must as they batik materials from Java are of good materials and are very cheap.

RM120 for 3 days use of a Wira? That's cheap.

Was it ok to bring the kids to the waterfall?

Datai is absolutely gorgeous isn't it?

mom2ashley, we missed the Andaman cos we spent quite some time at Datai. I heard that it's extremely beautiful there. Your pics say it too.

egghead, yea... seeing the children having fun is good enough.

j, it's actually worth going. I've never wanted to go there until given the opportunity.

mumsgather... hehehe, I like the shower pic actually. It's so cute huh?

Jesslyn, pictures do tell a thousand words... thus the short written story :-)

hui sia, someday, you'll have the opportunity to visit some of the beautiful places that Malaysia has to offer.

zara's mama. yup, RM120 for 3 days, but valid for off-peak and weekdays I think. We didn't get to play in the waterfall but the kids were in awe of the huge water 'falling' from the 'sky'. Datai is simply gorgeous :-)

Allyfeel said...

Baby Smooches said...
