Hi

You would be better looking under the tab on the left of the page marked "Things to Do". This will give you some idea of what is on offer as we do not know what you like to do.

Once you have made a short list, then come back on the forum and we can help you further.

Hi Jay Shan

It all depends on what you want to get out of your holiday.

Langkawi is a very relaxed place with a fairly slow pace, so no need to rush around.

Given your limited time here here are some things you may like to consider, Oriental village, cable car as one activity, Island hopping, a 4 hour tour of the Island which will cover most of the sights, maybe a little time to relax by the pool or on the beach, some time to enjoy different foods, a sunset cruise, mangrove trip, Underwaterworld, Bird Park, the list is nearly endless & you will not get to see & do everything.

Knowing nothing about your likes or dislikes it is very difficult to know what to suggest.

Happy planning

Hi

You may wish to cross snorkelling from your list as this is a full day trip to Pulau Payar as there is no snorkelling from any of the beaches on the island. Both Langkawi Coral and East Marine Divers do this trip so check out their websites for further details.

Which hotel are you staying at? Depends on this as to where you have a starting point for your activities.

Hi

It is just a short walk to the beach from these hotels where there is lots of water sports.

Pulau Payar is a marine park and therefore a protected area so no jet skis, thank goodness.

Hi

Snorkelling is expensive. As said above, check out the websites for East Marine Divers and Langkawi Coral and you will get all the information, plus prices there.

You can do an island hopping trip for something in the region of 60RM per person and the cable car is round about the same price.

The cable car was RM30 if I remember it right.

Two weeks ago it was closed for few hours on some days due to weather. Check that it is running before going there if the weather looks doubtful.
