Langkawi Trip 2009: Finale

Continued from part 3.

On the last day of Langkawi we wanted to go for the Langkawi cable car ride. We planned to go there very early to avoid the crowd. It opens at 9:30am (on a public holiday) and we were there by 10am so there was no crowd. But already a small queue was forming so we were quite glad we went early. Do bring your IC because you’ll get RM15 discount (usual price RM30).

Seen and enjoyed more things as compared to when I went with my housemates few years back where we took the 12 hour train. Yeah, we were still young and crazy then. Continue reading
