This morning we wake up late because we had only had one place to want to go is the Underwater world. We had our breakfast and check out bout 9.30am. We thought the underwater world open at 9.30am..but it open at 10am. Underwater world features the island’s rich treasure trove of marine life. Located at the popular Cenang Beach, this aquarium features more than 5,000 types of aquatic life, exhibited in more than 100 tanks of different sizes. The highlight is a giant tank housing large marine species such as sharks, stingray, moray eels and green turtles, with a 15 metre tunnel for visitors to walk through. At the new wing, visitors have the chance to view the latest additions to the underwater world- penguins and seals ! The penguins include Sub Antarctic Rockhoppers and Black footed species from Africa. The former is fed at 11.30 am and 3.30pm, while later at 9.30am and 2.30pm. the harbor seals are fed at 11am and 3pm daily. Drop by these hours for a delightful experience !

Langkawi – Day 2

After breakfast, we continue our journey to Kuah Town, supposed to be our first stop, since we staying in Cenang Town, we decided to go on our second day. Kuah is located on the southeastern tip of Langkawi and is the island’s main town with Kuah Jetty being the take-off point to the neighbouring islands. The name Kuah is a Malay word meaning ‘gravy’, referring to an ancient folklore of two battling giants who over turned a gigantic pot of curry at the sport where the town now stands.

Once a rustic town with a few streets, present day Kuah is a thriving centre of hotels and shopping cum business complexes, fortunately without the din of modern day cities. Kuah offers a wide variety of duty-free goods such as tobacco, liquor, cosmetics and electrical items at highly- attractive prices.

Kota Mahsuri, is our 1st destination. This place with its fabled and historical past is a significant site on the island that has been preserved for posterity. Located about 12 km from Kuah, this memorial is erected in honour of Mahsuri, a fair maiden who had been unjustly accused of adultery. According to legend, she had bled white blood at her execution as a sign of her innocence. In her dying breath, she laid a curse on the island, declaring that it would remain barren for seven generations. Fact or fiction, seven generation has since passed and today, Langkawi is a flourishing tourist destination. There is also a museum here where tourists can view a recorded interpretation of the Mahsuri legend.

The weather is extremely hot as well, we heading to Eagle Square or Dataran Lang is Langkawi’s most prominent landmark for visitors arriving via the sea. Situated near the Kuah Jetty, the main attraction of the square is the magnificent statue of the reddish brown eagle majestically poised for flight. According to local folklore, Langkawi derived its name from the eagle or helang. In old Malay, kawi denoted reddish brown, hence Langkawi means ‘reddish brown eagle’.

The square is beautiful landscaped and features scenic ponds, bridges, covered terraces, restaurants and barrel vaults made of bricks. The square is beautifully illuminated at night and presents a dramatic scene as you approach the island from the sea.

Taman lagenda or Legends Park is a scenic park with beautiful gardens of vivid local blooms, plants and fruit trees. The 50 acre park has been designed and landscaped with exhibits detailing the myths and legends of the island. It houses 17 monuments, each with an intriguing story to tell.

We had our lunch after a long walk. Then shopping…yea…getting some chocolate and things we can’t found in here in my place or state. After all the shopping, we heading back to Cenang town, to continue shopping for chocolate and wine, before the shopping mall closed at 6pm. We drop by Cenang beach- it was idyllic beaches, perfect for carefree sun filled days and quiet evening strolls. A wild range of exciting water sports provide fun and thrills for the energetic. Restaurant outlets in the hotels and outdoors serve a variety of appetizing cuisine with live music and an explosive atmosphere. We were there for a while since the weather is hot, hot and hot before going back to hotel to rest.

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.
