After the ride, drop by at the Oriental Village to browse through the assortment of souvenirs.
The 2nd place of the day, we went to Telaga Tujuh or known as Seven Wells located in the northwestern corner of Langkawi, is a geological marvel. The waterfall is so named because the cascading waters are broken by a series of seven natural pools. The lush green forest that surrounds the waterfall adds a mystical touch to the natural splendor. Legend has it that fairies uses to come down to the waterfall to bathe and frolic.
On the way back from Telaga Tujuh, we drop by Telaga Harbour Park to walk around and photo of course. It has an array of facilities such as the Petronas and Perdana quay, customs house, harbor office and the headland watchtower. There is also a bank and business centre with internet access. A basin area of 27 acres was created and designed for public berthing for vessels of various sizes. A number of berths are allocated for term lease or tenancy.
By the time we went back to the hotel after checking in, is almost 6pm, we rest for a while, before going for dinner. We didn’t know what we will be eating, but we walk around town and had a cup of Starbucks and enjoy the night scenery.
