3 Day 2 Night Trip @ Langkawi Island, Kedah

3 Day 2 Night Trip @ Langkawi Island, Kedah

Langkawi comprises of 99 tropical islands, shrouded with an intriguing heritage of myths and legends, the most famous being the legend of Mahsuri. Apart from that, feuding giants, mystical lakes and magical wells are the stories that are associated with Langkawi’s places of interest. 

Beginning of this trip, i take ferry from Kuala Kedah jetty for price RM23 per trip. After two and half hours, reach at Kuah town jetty. Once touch down Langkawi, first thing to do is have a deep breath at there for few seconds. Kidding. Find an affordable car renting services, which gonna rely on that vehicle for my following days. Found a RM60 for a small car with perfect condition. Heading to Citin Hotel for check-in at 2pm. Let begin my escape journey
