Langkawi - Day 1- Part 1

I never knew you all will be excited over my lousy trip...akekkeke... Why lousy trip? You will know later... Nothing much happen in the ferry on the way to Langkawi. I didn't sleep the whole night, so i manage to catch a nap. But hubby and his friends was playing all the way like little boys~~ ahahaha.. Some else grab the window seats, otherwise i will be able to take some scenery pics. So the ferry left at 8.00 a.m. We arrived Langkawi at around 10 ++.

The first thing we did, when we reach the Langkawi jetty was to the loo. Go and pee, wash face and brush tooths. Cos we only get to check-in to our hotel at 2.00p.m. After that we try to look for the travel agent that we rent the van but we couldn't find it. So we called them. The man come and meet us, we show him the voucher of the van rental and it turn out, he couldn't give us the price promised by the Kuala Kedah agent. The Kuala Kedah agent promised us Rm 60 for 8 seater van but this agent say he can only rent us the van for RM 80. So, we look for another tour agent. And I was afraid that the same incident will happen to our hotel room, so i asked hubby to confirm with the hotel first. The price for the hotel was still the same, but the staff told us we can only check-in 3.00 p.m.So this is our first van... a very lousy van... remember the number plate..don't rent this van. We first went to fill our stomach in Kuah Town. We found a chinese coffee shops. Some of us order the chicken rice it was soooo expensive.. And the coffee shop is so dirty...... but the iced tea is awesome...
It was still early when we finish eating. So we tot, we could visit some places. From the map, the one circled in red in our hotel and we in Kuah. On the way to our hotel, there are few places we could visit. They plan to go to Mahsuri Tomb first. But on our way to Mahsuri Tomb we passed the Snake Sanctuary, so i we drop by. I forgotten how much is the entrance fees. I think is RM 10 and we get one free admission. But they have different entrance fees for tourist and myKad holders.
The entrance to snake sanctuary

I am sure you are waiting for the snakes photo right? I am sorry to dissappoint you becos i could get a nice picture through the glass. And i was warn not to use flash. I didn't know what mode should i use to shoot....so i give up... But i found a blog which have some photos of the snakes in this sanctuary. Drop by if you are interested. Let brief you about what snake sanctuary is about. It display a wide variety of colourful snakes throughout Malaysia. It is oso one of the latest attraction in Langkawi. It features thousand of species of poisonous and non-poisonous snakes endemic to Malaysia.
I think they have snakes show during holidays or weekend. The show starts at 3p.m on the day we visit. Since it was still early, the staff told us we could come back later with the same ticket. And you can take picture with one of the snake...i dunno what the name of the snake... i was afraid of this creature so i didn't take la. I asked hubby to go and take.. manatau he oso scare..hahaha.. But hor...i dun see any big big snake in this sanctuary lo... Not as big as i the one i saw In Kuala Terengganu.. The one i saw in Terengganu was really big and fat. It was curled up in a small cage.

Next, we went to the Mahsuri Tomb. But we ended up didn't went in. I didn't wan to went in because i had already been there before during my high school trip. And it was nothing special. And i am not sure why the other guys didn't wan to went in....

Our our next stop, should be the Hot Spring Village but hubby's friend the one holding the map, saw the Gunung Raya signboard and he asked the driver to turn -in. Going up Gunung Raya we need to pay 50 cents per car. We tot there will be something interesting on top of the mountain. When we reach the top ...guess what it was the Celcom satelite station and very thick mist....walau eh...really waste our time and petrol lo....... And we even risk our lifes lo...cos it was raining and the road was winding lo...... We spend like 2 hours in the mountain... because on the way down the mountain.. there were smell came from our car. We stop the car, one of hubby friend were ex- mechanic... he told us the smell was from the brake pad.. and the tyre was so hot..... so on our way down, we break a few times...... During our breaks, i captured some pics..
For those who wan to challenge your hiking skill, instead of coming up with a vehicle, you can climb up these stairs "Tangga Helang Seribu Kenangan".. Ya right, what is there to "kenang"...The mist

By the time we reach the bottom, it was nearly 3.00p.m... some are tired, some are fad up... and all wanted to rest.... So head straight to our hotel-The Langkasuka Beach Resort........... There are still a lot to write for day 1.I think i will split it to Part 1 and 2 .. And i don have much pictures for day 1. In this trip, i didn't take lots of picture cos those guys not the camwhore kaki....... Me alone camwhore so sien~~~ So i only took around 40 over photos...mostly all scenery...


To be continued~~ Langkawi - Day 1 - Part 2
