It is best enjoyed from a glass-floor gondola where you can marvel at the flora and fauna on the ridges, overhanging cliff walls, isolated pinnacles, and even the waterfalls.

Langkawi Island Hopping Private Boat Tour
Hustle free because booking online. Actually a van was provided for pickup but we had our own van and didn't want to bother changing vans, so the driver showed us the way to the jetty. There are three points, near Tasik Dayang Bunting there are too many monkeys that are a bit aggressive. Don't bring food if you can. Later the monkey will try to seize it. To get to the lake, you have to hike in 10-15 minutes and it is quite high. Not suitable for parents. But there is a place to wait below. Please bring more money because you want to do activities near the lake such as boat paddle, kayak and swimming, you have to pay RM10 for all activities. Near Pantai Beras Basah, you can do parasailing activities, sofa bed and banana boat. RM25/ head. Near the wet beach jetty you can see beautiful fish but it is not suitable for snorkeling. Near the eagle checkpoint, you can see many eagles up close. Totally worth it.

Langkawi Island Hopping Boat Tour
This tour covered St.Johns and Lazarus island first. they are connected by a causeway. Museum was not good, better to spend time to explore the island. Beaches are beautiful. Should carry food and water as nothing is available here. Kusu island is good, it has Malay and Chinese temples. Beautiful and picturesque. Kusu island has a stall for drinks and food like Laksa and fish ball soup.
