Langkawi Island is the largest one in the 140-island Langkawi archipelago chain which in times past was a perfect pirate hideaway and today is a sought after luxury tourist destination.
The fun begins as you make your way through rice paddy fields and rubber plantations to Makam Mahsuri. This is the birthplace of Mahsuri, a princess who was falsely accused of adultery. Legend has it she placed a curse on the island for 7 generations right before her death. Visit her shrine and see her jewelry in the on-site museum as well as the weapon she was murdered with.
From there you will travel to a rubber plantation for a brief demonstration of rubber tapping. While on tour, hop inside a cable car and soar along the rainforest treetops. Savor the birds eye views and pass high waterfalls to reach Gunung Machinchang; at 2,100 feet high its circular platforms offer 360 degree breathtaking views of the archipelago and nearby Thailand. Be sure to bring your camera!
Take a seat in a local restaurant for lunch then be greeted at Kuah, the main town and capital of Langkawi, by an impressive 12-meter-high statue of an eagle in pre-flight mode. Take advantage of your time here to do a little duty-free shopping and mingle with the locals before your return trip to port.
