Outdoor Activities in Langkawi

We all already know about the Legend of Mahsuri, the LIMA airshow, the Kilim Geopark, the chocolate and Pyrex Cik Kiah shopping, and etc. I guess the only thing for me to do is to share on outdoor activities that you can do in Langkawi (some of it are pretty new and some has been there for quite some time but not being highlighted enough).

Claimed to be the first of its kind in Malaysia, where one can ‘sky-trekking’ from tree to tree (reminded me of Chewbacca, I don’t know why) by either ‘flying’, swinging, gliding and dangling on the various obstacles course suspended to unleash the inner child in you. Skytrex Langkawi offers 3 circuits namely the Island Extreme (Advanced), Eagle Thrill (Intermediate) and Little Legend (beginner – the one I did). It is suitable for team building as it has a reasonable meeting room as well (for briefing/grouping).

Little Legend is designed with 23 obstacles for all age group (including children) and it is 3 to 5 meters from the ground and not to worry the maximum weight is 100kg (just incase there might be people asking kan). Eagle Thrill, an intermediate course is designed with 29 challenges at the height of 11 meters from the ground. It includes 8 ‘flying fox’, 5 horizontal challenges, 5 climbing obstacles and 5 descending tasks. The advanced course, Island Extreme consist of 30 of challenges to test your stamina and patience. It is also the largest circuit with 33 challenges at the height of up to 15 meters in the air comprising 15 ‘flying fox’, 5 horizontal challenges, 3 challenges of climbing and 3 descending challenges.

Excited? Make sure to include Skytrex in your itinerary for Langkawi.

Ahh…. This one is suitable for honeymooners or a group of friends celebrating a joyous occasion. Where you can either join with another group of perhaps charter the whole boat for sunset dinner. So there are 2 things you can do here, one is the sunset dinner cruise and the other is the saltwater Jacuzzi, both are not to be missed.

The sunset dinner cruise takes 3 hours in total that includes and open bar free flow (softdrinks only for us), buffet dinner (mihun goreng, nasi goreng, BBQ sausages, garlic bread and etc) then of course there’s the popular saltwater Jacuzzi.

Few type of boats available, Sea Splash is the first and the only Non-Alcohol Cruise in Langkawi, then there’s Sama Sama Langkawi, a family cruiser suitable for event, and a few fleet of catamarans.

Romantic huh, try lah.
