I had read that Langkawi was home to some beautiful beaches before we arrived and we decided to stay near Chenang beach at a place called Rainbow Lodge. It was probably one of the worst rooms we’ve stayed in so far but the location was pretty perfect. Not only were we close to a gorgeous beach but across the road from our accommodation was some nice green land which had a mumma cow and its baby cows!Oh and we had a hammock so all was not as awful as the interior. The sunsets in Langkawi were the best we’ve had on our trip so far! Each night the sunset was different so we enjoyed going down to the beach every night and seeing what was in store for us! Beer is also super cheap as Langkawi is a duty free location. £0.50p for a tiger beer or a Guinness meant we were taking full advantage of afternoon/sunset beers. It’s an easy place to fall into full relaxation mode!
One of the days we hired a scooter and road around half of the island visiting waterfalls. One in particular (Temurun Waterfall) was breathtaking! It was around 200m tall and had a lagoon type pool at the bottom.While we were there taking in the view a group of young local boys started climbing really high up the waterfall and then got out soap and shampoo and started washing themselves. They then took turns diving into the bottom.Langkawi was a nice relaxing few days and there is loads of fun things to do there. Sadly we didn’t get to do some of them as the weather was a little temperamental. It was overcast a lot of the time (except our day out to the waterfalls) so we didn’t get to do a boat trip to the caves or the skywalk as it was hidden in the clouds. Definitely somewhere I would love to visit again though.
