Langkawi Part 1 : Mangrove Fun


..my ONE day trip to Langkawi..


The boat cruise to Kilim Nature Park was unlike anything I’d experienced before (Niah cave cross river was too nothing. Manukan speedboat was crazy sickened.) We went to Kilim Geoforest Park, about 15 minutes ride from Kuah jetty. I’d dreamed of something close to fascinating spectacular view of rugged limestone.. and yeah through this mangrove forest I found more than those (hand wave Phi Phi island) This activity called Mangrove Tour, (tips: RM120 per pax) by boat and luckily only two of us in the boat!

I mean three with the boatman



Just across the river from the Kilim jetty was the Bat Cave., named after its habitants. But it wasn’t meant to be my favorite. Nothing much or maybe I was too afraid of the dark.. night crawling and knowing that there were bats sleeping upside down hanging above you, what do you expect? Spooky! (Tips; torch light rental RM1)



This is the starting point for the cave adventure. There would be no monkey crossing sign but, yes..all of a sudden a monkey will follow behind you. Tak comel ok, menakut kan . Or if it's your bad day, 4 monkeys!


I was wondering, what would happen if I forgot to turn off the camera flash? haha..answer me!



About 15 minutes after (I must fast forward to another location) we were at somewhere corner of the river to feed the eagles. I was imagining myself, placing some food in my palm waiting the camera to catch my smile.. bengong . NO. This is not magic. It much done this way, our guide stopped the boat engine and began tossing chicken skin, followed by the eagles began screeching and flying down the water and grab the food.. kulit ayam memang sedap la.



Another boats waiting their luck for the eagle feeding. In this video, our guide explained us that sometimes there would be hundreds eagles , more or less depends on mealtime taken.

It may sound funny but I left my shade behind because I don’t want to miss every hue of the magnificent color form by this passage to breathtaking (read : memang suka over excited )



tolong fokus kat limestone hills tu..ahh..pengsan!


On the right of the above picture was the gateway to Andaman Sea of Thailand, famous with its 99 surrounding islands. European yachters loves to come here throughout season and its normal to see their yacht abondoned like this.





The above picture expained our next activity, the fish farm. This is the view from distance..I've just told you about the yachts..





The floating fish farm has several divided square with nets deep in the water, each for different species fish. The coral fish caught my attention, so to the big eyes of nyok nyok fish or John Travolta ..eh ..Giant Tivolli. Nama taknak kalah.




The boy was feeding the Stingrays or ikan pari. Mari ingat tentang Steve Irwin :P





This is Belangkas..urmm is this a Belangkas?

It was the most highlighted fun wonderlust adventure to one of our own UNESCO Heritage site! to be continue..
