Description

Langkawi Island dominates this Malaysian group of 104 tropical islands on the west coast of the country. It is the most visited part of the Langkawi islands and delivers white sand beaches and thick jungles. Featuring a striking landscape, the island also plays host to an assortment of historic sites as well as several attractions.

And it is made even more intriguing by its myths and legends. The name Langkawi combines the Malaly words helang (eagle) and kawi (strong) hence the eagle is the symbol for the island. Its breathtaking scenery, rustic ambience enhanced by its marine life and spectacular limestone formation makes this island an idyllic retreat. Langkawi is also listed under UNESCO on the list of Geo Forest Park for the oldest rock formation and its rich biodiversity of fauna and flora.

You will visit Gunung Machinchang, and have a chance to take the Langkawi Cable Car, where you will find stunning views of the island. Here you will see that there is more jungle than you might have imagined. Though the cable car takes 15 minutes each way, you will want to spend time at the top absorbing the scene.

See the Mahsuri Tomb, which carries a story that has more than 7 versions. The Mahsuri legend has become something of a cultural icon for Malaysians. Your guide will relay his/hers! You will also visit the Batik Village, which is not only interesting but will allow you to purchase souvenirs that are particularly exclusive and for which it is famous.

Also see Kuah Town, once a fishing village and now the capital of Langkawi. Still charming, it also has a bustle of commerce at its port. And then see the Langkawi Crocodile Farm, which houses one of the largest numbers of crocodile and alligator species gathered together in the world. Here, reptiles range from newborns to world record-holders.

In Cozumel we enjoyed the snorkeling that we did off a catamaran. The staff was friendly, very professional, and helpful with my first time snorkeling daughter. Grand Cayman we went to sting ray city with a trip and snorkeling. Staff and trip was amazing, crew very helpful and fun. in Jamaica we did a Dunn's River Falls excursion and private beach. We had fun but were not impressed with the staff, and their timeliness (waited around alot),

Traveling into Russia can be nerve-wracking (and getting more so every day) -- but ShoreTrips made it easy by providing all of the paperwork and instructions, as well as organizing good guides.
