Guided by a local expert, knowing the history and local roads like the back of their hand, Langkawi’s Grand Tour is not only one of the most complete tours, it also is a grand meeting with its residents.

TRAIL ITINERARY

The Grand Tour of Langkawi

09:00 - 17:00

From your resort, your guide-cum-driver will head first to an institution of immense importance for the preservation of local fauna. Crocodiles roamed the lands around Langkawi for generations, and the protection of these predators has been essential for this island. Covering 20 acres, the Langkawi Crocodile Farm is home to over 1000 animals, ranging from the just hatched to some older ‘boys’ and girls’.

The Oriental Village Langkawi is an outdoor lifestyle and shopping centre, constructed at the foothills of Mount Mat Cincang. The mountain is the starting point for the scenic cable cart ride up (included) to the view platforms, some 800 meters above sea level with amazing panoramic views over Langkawi the other island, off its coast. Nearby, the centuries-old traditions of batik painting are to admire at the Batik Village where customers can browse around in search for a souvenir like the highly popular, hand-dyed sarong. We continue to visit the tomb of the legendary Princess Mahsuri in the village of Mawat. Fables and myths go around the island about this legend of this princess which your guide is happy to bring forward.

Three more places of great interest will pass the revue right after lunch. Langkawi’s Black Sand Beach – Pantai Pasir Hitam – is a mixture of black and white sands with legends trying to ascertain the truth behind it. The unique scenery makes it a popular weekend spot for residents. Langkawi is inadmissibly connected with the eagle and to make this connection even stronger Eagle Square with its massive statue confirms the importance of the island with this feathered friend.

Finally, we end at Kuah Town, located near the famous Eagle Square. A full-day comes to an end and your guide-cum-driver for the day brings you back in all comfort to your hotel on the island.
