I have heard so much about the pretty island of Langkawi. It did not disappoint me when I was there for a short 3 days 2 nights getaway. A safe, and easy to-get-to destination for a single female traveler. It is a great place to try solo traveling, as I told my sister. Although I got a little annoyed at times, when I got asked for the 100th time “Why you no boyfriend” by the cheeky, hospitable beach boys.
Besides lazing on the pristine beaches and sipping a cocktail or two in one of many atmospheric bars, you can decide on numerous mildly adventurous day tours into the wild. Langkawi Island is blessed with clear waters with highly visible sea inhabitants. There are also limestone caves, and bat caves waiting to be explored, all in very good condition.
For those rich in the pockets, you can hire your own private yacht, set out to sea, and catch the sunset on the horizon while enjoying a sumptuous buffet.
I finally got to do what I have always wanted but deterred due to a lack of guts. Parasailing….As I was lifted off, I imagine angels wings growing on me, and I leave the burdens of the world and fly towards freedom. I was closer to heaven for that few minutes.
