The Gates Langkawi Resort
Travel Blogs from Langkawi
... The long ride home awaited, and we finally made it. Back to the yellow cafe (creatures of habit yaba yaba) and off the bed after a busy busy day. We discussed options that evening, and decided to do a tour of the islands around about. We booked up that evening and were picked up the next afternoon; around 2ish. We plumped for the 4 hour Island tour which was well worth the 35rm (7 pounds each!!)
Hilarity ensued ...
... that a fairy princess married a local man - and their infant baby died shortly after birth. They buried the child in the lake, and it's said that a woman who drinks from the lake will be rewarded with pregnancy.
From the sea-view, you can see the outline of the pregnant maiden in the hills. On the other side of the hills, is the fresh water lake. (see picture at the bottom for reference)
My Dad and I jumped ...
... island, is it busy this time of year, the beaches, if there are any stingers e.g jelly fish like we have in Aus. According to the driver there ARE stingers and if you get stung you will only be a little bit unconscious and need to go to hospital! Let's hope that doesn't happen! We had a late dinner making sure we sat under a fan in the main hotel restaurant. The humidity here is ridiculous.....I haven't sweated this much just sitting down.....ever! I wouldn't say ...
... didn't like the look of us because he started throwing fruit at us! Fortunately they were small and not coconuts so it didn't hurt, but he was sending a very definite and clear message. Go away. So of course we obliged leaving him to his breakfast. The really weird thing is that as we continued back to our room he was shadowing us, maybe to make sure we left, who knows? That was our final wildlife encounter for the day. Langkawi really is a special ...
... my few days here.
What am I going to do tomorrow? Nothing :D Just nothing hehe
That's good. I need some time to think and get everything straitened out, I need to relax and be able to focus after this trip again, so I need my time here to do nothing, think and swim and tan... I can do that... Just three days, Ill manage ;)
Please don't get jealous by the pictures... I would be though!
