Pulau Langkawi, it’s been 17 years since my la

st visit. We decided to have a short break just to relax and have a quality time together. We’ve planned this since early 2008 but to be honest i can only said ‘Yes we’re going’ at the 11th hour. Finally i manage to finish all my work/task on time and im off to Langkawi :).

We departed from LCCT around 12:30, We didn’t bought the priority boarding but my wife has a cool technique to get us almost in front of a queue. During check-in, Pak Arab infront of me need to pay extra RM160 ringgit because he exceed the weight limit by 16kg. RM10 for every extra kilo? Wow.. that’s a lot. Guess AirAsia now has a new source of income. My wife took my son to ‘berebut’ / fight for best seat, while i packed the stroller and carry all the hand luggage. Flight takeoff and along the flight, Aaqil admiring the plane engine and wing, he actually spent most of the time watching outside.

We arrived at Langkawi International Airport around 1.30 PM.After some negotiation with car rental dealer, i manage to secure a mazda3 for RM200 (for three day – 2 night use). I think it’s a good deal since wira will cost you RM80/day during weekend. The dealer also offers us a Sentra for RM180/3 day. Sentra takmo lah… old model :P.

mazda3 **wink wink**

My wife grab the free map available around the airport and off we go to the hotel. I won’t talk about hotel here — I will write a dedicated entry for Casa Del Mar. I heard about this hotel from tripAdvisor site, which i think a reliable source for traveling information. It’s the best hotel with a realistic price tag (cheaper than Datai, Westin and Tanjung Rhu). OK back to the story, After taking a short break, we quickly make our way to Kuah town. Yes, we do the shopping as soon as we arrive because coming Saturday is super peak season and it’s difficult to bargain during then.

After stocking up some cigarettes, chocolates and others, we head to Langkawi Bird Paradise wildlife park @ Jalan Air Hangat

Located just 10-minute drive from Kuah. The park claimed they have hundreds of the planet’s rarest and most beautiful feathered creature ready to greet visitors but I highly doubt that. It’s off peak season and the park is empty. It’s like visiting private park, no crowded and all bird like giving full attention to you.

next, we feed the ‘serindit’s. This bird very shy at first but later will swarm you after they feel safe.

We have our dinner at Orkid Ria @ Pantai Cenang. The food is good – the price is a bit on high side. But IMHO it’s value to your money. Aaqil not in a good mood during dinner and im too lazy to carry extra weight so no picture taken during dinner.

    a lot of people asking about rental car contact number, so here is it :
    (Che Mat) – 0124557977 or 0124807797

    Important : my car rental rate is off peak season charge, so it’s very hard to get that rate during weekend or public holiday. I also went there before petrol hike, so not sure bout the price now.

    Deposit also needed. Try to bargain to reduce the deposit 🙂
