I have been to Langkawi for 5 times over the last 5 years. Land of chocolates and wines, these things are so cheap there, I even had chocolates for breakfast and wine after every meal.

The nature tour is something not to be missed, I'd been to island hopping to Pregnant Maiden Island, took the mangrove tour around the Geopark, done the snorkeling at Payar Island, and the Cable Car, Acquarium, Bird Park, walked along Chenang Beach as if it was my second home.

Drove up to Gunung Raya for bird watching and reached the watch tower on top of the hill. It is the highest point of the island, was cold even in the evening, saw Thailand from the tower.

A monkey on the island showing off its skill of opening a can of Coke, it succeeded.

The monkeys along Klim River(Geopark) were highly skilled swimmers and had no problem snatching crackers thrown in the water by visitors.

Eagle feeding, I do not support this, so unnatural.

Facts about eagles, they are monogamous and mate for life. An eagle will only select another mate if its faithful companion should die.A male-female pair stays together throughout the breeding season and shares responsibility in raising young.

I didn't make it up, this handsome tour guide related the touching facts to me.

Buffet lunch after the mangrove tour at Barn Thai Restaurant, a place in the midst of tropical rain forest, lots of monkeys around. Good life is made of this, food at last.

Can't wait to go back to Langkawi again, anyone care to join me this time? I do not mind to be your free tour guide, it is free, what do you expect?
