Cenang beach in Langkawi

Continued from our trip to Langkawi in Malaysia part 1

# Cenang beach

Langkawi’s irresistible natural beauty, wonderful beaches, ancient forests and waterfalls make it more scenic and popular. Langkawi’s beaches are rated amongst best in the world. Cenang beach is one such pristine beach with clean sand and small islands around it. Seating for hours on a beach and playing beach toys with my daughter is my favourite pastime and I could do it most of the time here in Langkawi. Cenang beach was having a number of water sports/ rides available on the beach side. It was a pleasant evening and the weather was perfect for playing beach sports. I never tried any beach sports before coming here.  I learned new thing and that’s Jet Ski. Yeah, it was the pretty new thing for me as I never heard about it before coming here. I don’t know swimming and I’m afraid of water. Leave Ocean I didn’t even dare to enter in the swimming pool. So when I saw these water motor bikes and people taking rides on them it was goose bumps in my stomach.

After roaming around the beach for around an hour alone I got bored, as my hubby was busy enjoying the Jet Ski too much. He asked me to join it many times but I didn’t dare. After every 10-15 minutes, he narrated to me how wonderful ride it is and the joy of riding faster than the waves in the sea. It sounds interesting and I thought of giving try to Jet Ski finally. I instructed the trainer that I am scared of water and I ll try riding it by beach side only. He suggested not going for Jet Ski ride as it is for sea and not for beach side as other people may hurt if I ride on the beach side. My first ride on the water bike started, initially, I was very scared in the sea but somehow I continued it for another half hour. The trainers are skilled and they teach you riding with confidence. This small training session convinced me and after practice, I could do it with ease. Believe me, it was the best ride I ever did and could do it again and again. I enjoyed the splashes of water when the Jet Ski runs in water most. We all continued taking Jet Ski rides for rest of the time on the beach.

Eagle Square (Dataran lang)

Its statue of an eagle which is very huge of height 12 meters and it’s poised to take a flight. It has a wonderful garden around with fountains in it.I t’s one more beautiful place in Langkawi. We visited this place in the morning as our trip organizer wanted to cover many places till afternoon. And as it was morning place was not more crowded, we enjoyed clocking lots of photos near the eagle and came to know its very popular spot amongst visitors and locals. As it’s close to sea people enjoy outing and food in the nearby restaurants.T here are shops also nearby where many local things can be availed.

# Langkawi sky cab

Another must visit attraction in Langkawi is the Langkawi is Sky cab. It is the world’s steepest cable car, with the top station at 708 meters above sea level. This sky car goes from green forests. I t travels to the cliff of the mountain and the view from the car is breath taking.I felt as if I’m in another world while travelling in the sky car. As I never been to so high mountains and ridden in cable cars.

My little one was enthralled and according to her, she has become a bird who can fly in mountains. Being bird and flying was her fantasy and its turned in reality because of sky car. The ride up is lots of fun and there is a stop to take in the views on the way. The top mountain cliff has great views over Langkawi ‘s rainforests, islet waterfalls. Cable car experience was enthralling for us and we could seat in it for hours.

Kilim geoforest park is also known as kilim nature park. And it is comprised of the blue lagoons, mangrove forests and white beaches. Again this was totally new to us.M angrove forests about which I always read in books, but never thought it must be this beautiful. Totally nature everywhere no lights, no crowd, no pollution, no artificial decorations and more important no noise at all. It was so peaceful that anyone could hear own breathing sound. The bogak tree and tree crabs add more beauty to this place. The view of limestone rocks, elephant stones are truly amazing.

# Things to do in langkawi


There are so many activities to do in Langkawi for kids as well as adults.I enjoy learning jet ski the most. But people have lots of options for doing adventurous activities. could see people diving and getting ready for snorkelling. It must be definitely fun to explore the sea. I wish I could do many things but there was time constraint and thus I couldn’t go for many other things. Outdoor activities like the following are available:

  • Parasailing
  • jet ski
  • Jungle trekking
  • Snorkelling and diving
  • Island hopping tours
  • Eagle watching

# Shopping in Langkawi

Langkawi with its natural beauty is the wonderful place for shopping as well as its duty free zone.
The whole island is a duty free zone. There are bargains on perfume, chocolates and other wares to be had, especially in the jetty area and on the shopping strip at Pantai Cenang.i did lots of shopping as it’s very cheap. Many super markets have the wonderful variety of kitchen ware, bags, clothes, chocolates and handmade things what’s not. Langkawi night market is the market where vendors seat on a street with many delicacies and handmade goods. It’s crowded and people enjoy hot and delicious food by standing on the road. I purchased handmade hair accessories and purses in the market.
