One of my favorite places that I’ve ever been to is Langkawi Island. Langkawi is an archipelago of 104 islands in the Andaman Sea, some 30 km off the mainland coast of northwestern Malaysia. I visited Langkawi Island around 5 years ago. Yes, it’s been quite a long time, but I still remember clearly how beautiful the scenery was. The sea was incredibly beautiful and flawless. I was very amazed. There were a lot of beaches, too. The beaches were clean and nice.
That time when I visited Langkawi Island, I went to several famous places on that island. The first place that I visited was the Langkawi Sky Bridge. Literally, the Sky Bridge is a hanging bridge which is located up high (it’s 410 ft high, to be exact) until it looks like it’s very close to the sky, and that’s why it’s called the Sky Bridge. It was quite scary and thrilling to walk on such a bridge, I admit. But from up there, I could see the entire scenery of Langkawi Island. And with that, my fear was all gone. As I mentioned earlier, the scenery was amazing. I could see the scenery of the clear blue sea and all the surrounding small islands. It was very satisfying.
After I visited the Sky Bridge, I then went to a place where I could get onto a vehicle named cable car. It is something like a small cabin which is hanging up above the sky and it’s supported by cables only. Well, this one was a bit scarier than the Sky Bridge for me, because it was moving as we were on it. But again, I could see the beauty of Langkawi Island from up there and it definitely blew my mind. Looking back to when I was there, I have to say that It was a lot of fun!
The third place that I went to was the Dayang Bunting Island. Dayang Bunting Island is famous for it’s form that resembles a pregnant woman. If you look closely, you will be able to see a “pregnant woman” lying in between the two other islands, and that’s why the island is called “dayang bunting” which mean “pregnant ladies” in Malay. It was very interesting to see that famous island from up close.
Langkawi is indeed a very alluring island. I am very grateful that I've ever visited such a beautiful place with so many tourist attractions. If i had a chance to go back, I would gladly take the chance and go back to that amazing island.
