Langkawi Mangrove Tour

I decided to opt out of my normal trend and go for a tour.

The tour started with a hotel pickup around 8:30am (they do pickups for any hotel along the Pantai Cenang and Pantai Tengah areas).  It consisted of visits to a couple of things which I thought would be boring, but proved to be a great tour.

All up it included;

  • A boat ride through the mangroves on the Kilim River with a guide who told lame jokes, but was fairly entertaining!
  • Walkthough of a bat cave
  • “Crocodile Cave” where crocs used to live apparently… it’s just a low lying cave which the boats can just squeeze under at low to mid tide….
  • Fish breeding farm – not as boring as it sounds!
  • See some eagles feeding
  • A set Thai lunch at one of the floating restaurants
  • Stop-off for half an hour on one of the beaches on the way back for a swim

A great tour, and a must do if you visit Langkawi!
