4D3N Langkawi Trip (With Itinerary)

During my stay in hall, my friends and I have always been talking about going on a vacation together and after choosing for some time, we decided to embark on a 4D3N road trip to Langkawi!

At T4

Was clearing immigration and I got cut by my disposable shaver which I stupidly did not cap when packing. I bled for 15-20 minutes straight and was very blessed to have Zale and Jar with me who showered me with intense TLC weew.
we walked around T4 like this for 15 minutes

For this trip, we decided to rent a car for transport and were looking through online car rental for our trip and the prices ranged from SGD$120-180 for the entire 4 days. However, we decided against online booking and wanted to try our luck at the airport instead as we thought the prices should be similar. Thankfully, we did that and we were offered only RM$240 (~SGD$80) for 4 days car rental.
Car for the next 4 days!
We checked in at Harmony Guest House which was situated really near the airport. I would say it has a rather good location as it's located quite in the middle and not along the touristy areas so it was rather peaceful at night.  It could satisfy all our basic needs and was rather worth the price of RM$474 (~$160) for 2 rooms for 3 nights.

Our first meal was at Haroo Korean Restaurant.We were rather impressed with the shop's service as the sales person was really friendly and even gave us tips and places to go in Langkawi. Really living up to its good reviews on TripAdvisor.
We ordered a few dishes to share and I must say that the food was really really good.

After our meal, we had complimentary cookies and cream ice cream which we all agreed to be really good and craved for it really badly for the next few days.

Next up, we headed to Pantai Cenang Beach to play water sports. We played banana boat (RM$90/~SGD$30 for 5 people) which lasted for about 15 minutes. There were other activities such as parasailing, wake boarding and jet ski tours etc but we just chilled around at the beach.

Banana Boat!!
Afterwards, we headed back to our guesthouse to wash up first before going to Bohor Tempoyak Thursday Night Market. It was smaller than expected but the food was really good and cheap, especially the mango and coconut shakes!!

I would recommend trying their roti canai cause it's really fragrant and much 'doughier' than Singapore's. 

After our first round of dinner at the night market, we decided to try out Fat Cupid's Restaurant. The atmosphere of the restaurant was really good but the service was nothing compared to what we experienced in Haroo Korean Restaurant in the afternoon.

I brought my own fairy lights to the trip and took a few photos with the fairy light garden setup and I think almost everyone in the restaurant judged us. The staff probably didn't know that we brought our own fairy lights and my friends overheard them commenting "how did they do that" when they saw that we had fairy lights around us. Maybe they thought we dismantled their setup LOL

That's pretty much marks the end of our first day!

Day 2
We started our second day by having buffet at NEST Rooftop cafe! It was RM$20 (~SGD$7) for buffet breakfast. The choices were quite limited but there was an eggs station and the overview of Langkawi sort of made up for it. It was a great experience but I definitely preferred our breakfast which we had for the next few days.

Since NEST Rooftop was in Pantai Cenang area, we shopped for a little while down the streets and headed to Underwater World Sea Aquarium which was just down the streets. 

Tickets at RM$46 each!
We caught the penguins feeding time!

Next up, we drove to Sky Bridge and Cable Car!
Cable Car Ride!
The view of Sky Bridge from Cable Car

The cable car package was RM$55(~S$18) per person and upon reaching the peak, we could choose between taking a short nature walk for free or the SkyGlide (RM$10) to reach the Sky Bridge. We chose the nature walk which was rather a short walk down but torturous return journey because it was uphill.

I am super unfit someone help me
The entrance for skybridge itself was RM$5 (~S$1.70) and the view from the bridge was really beautiful.
Can I be the view too?

After which, we headed to Seven Wells Waterfall which was just a few minutes drive away. The walk from the carpark to the waterfall took about 15-20 minutes but the view was definitely worth it. Just take note not to bring about any valuables along because there won't be anyone to take care of your belongings when you play in the waterfall.

We tried many times for this shot cause I totally forgot that I can use my phone to control the GoPro camera LOL. But all is well, we finally got a shot that has everyone inside.

Later that evening, we headed to Ayer Hangat Friday Night Market. Even though it was at another location, many of the night market stalls were by the same vendors as the previous day's. However, if you really want to go to a night market, head for the friday one instead of thurday's as it is much bigger and has more stalls.

We then had drinks at The Cliff Restaurant and Bar which was located in Pantai Cenang area as well. I guess staying in that area would be great as well because the nightlife is really happening but the downside would be the noise level.

Day 3
We started our morning at SkyTrex Adventure Park. There were a few activity slots to choose from and we chose the 10.30am slot and tried the advanced course. Apparently, the advanced course was less physically straining than the intermediate one but had more high elements and 15 zipline courses in it.
All ready for our adventure!
Despite being the less physical strenous one, some parts were really tiring, especially the parts when we had to climb up ladders to reach the top of the trees.
However, it was a really fun activity to include in the itinerary and all of us agreed that this was the best activity of our entire trip!
End of our adventure!

In the afternoon, we headed to Langkawi Wildlife park! We could have close interactions with the animals and the wildlife park was nice enough to let us take photos with the animals without additional charges!

Who said I'm scared of birds??
Waiting for the crocodile feedingshow!
 The park itself was not that big but was quite worth it for it's price! Would recommend if you have free time in your langkawi trip!

Once again, we randomly chose a spot for dinner at Pantai Cenang area because we did not know what to eat anymore. We headed to this place called Palm View Live Seafood Restaurant 椰林中华料理. Would totally recommend and it was one of our best meals in Langkawi with affordable pricing!

While we were having dinner, the staff passed us brochures of langkawi tours and we decided to sign one for our last day. It was RM$350 for a private 4 hour tour for 7 locations! Other than the restaurant, there were many tour agencies around Pantai Cenang Area offering similar packages as well! It was a rather good deal because when we headed to the location the next day, the same tour package was sold for RM$500.

Day 4
We started our day by checking out of our guest house and headed to Kilim GeoForest for the 7 location tour!

The entire tour comprises of these places: Bat Cave, Fish Feeding, Eagle Watching, Crocodile Cave, Fish Farm, some random beach and mangroves!

Meeting point to board our boat!

Bat Cave!
Most of the time was actually spent on the boat and the beach but it was a really nice break from the usual hectic city life!

At the beach!

It was the last trip for my summer and I'm really thankful that it happened and I had a really awesome and relaxing 4 days! I would say that Langkawi is a great choice for a short 3 to 4 days getaway!

As for this trip, some of the photos are taken using my phone while others are taken using GoPro Hero 6 which was kindly rented to me by LeasanyLeasany is an online platform which provides travelling essentials for Singaporeans from as low as $5/day for a GoPro(Other versions), which is a much lower price compared to buying one. They have many other models of cameras/drones available for renting and you can even rent bagpacks if you don't own one!
From nature, leisure to parties, Leasany got it all covered!

Here's a video I took fully using their GoPro Hero 6 which shows snippets of our entire trip!

Leasany is very kind to offer 20% discount to all my readers by quoting "christinenglt" for any rental service. Promo code is valid till 31st January 2019 so do hurry and book your equipment for your next trip!

Thanks for reading and I hope you enjoyed reading our 4 days and 3 nights in Langkawi!


  1. Hello dear,

    You shared a piece of very good information about Langkawi tour. Langkawi Island, Malaysia, officially known as the Jewel of Kedah, is an archipelago of 104 islands in the Andaman Sea, some 30 km off the mainland coast of northwestern Malaysia. Langkawi boasts many luxury five star hotels with private beaches and gardens, but there is something for everyone’s budget with clean and inviting backpacker accommodation still very popular. The island is just waiting to be explored and is best done by renting your own transport and traveling along the lush jungle roads and to the lesser known hidden beaches. Last month I had gone there & booked the luxury hotel from Ambong-ambong.com & really mesmerize with the sunrise scene from its glass door & enjoying swimming in open space.

    Thanks & regards,
