Langkawi Island – updated

Here I am on Langkawi – after a change of plans.  Unfortunately the 3 nights I’ll here, the forecast is rain, rain and rain…. but let’s hope the sun will shine through the clouds occasionally.  I haven’t explore the island fully yet, just a stroll from the hotel to the beach, so only a few pics at the moment.

The wild life is interesting – I’ve seen monkeys and squirrels darting along the trees and power lines!  Will explore more tomorrow….

Day 2

Although the forecast was bad, it turned out quite good.  I managed to explore half the island even though I did not do the ‘tourist thing’.  Its incredible how there are still small villages, and untouched rain forest.  The wild animals come out on the streets!

I also managed to locate many nice beaches and bays (“Teluk” in the local language)

Laze around…… went to the Wet Market at Kuah.

On the beach, many tiny crabs busy themselves digging holes and depositing sand (look for the crab near the hole – tiny little thing less than 1cm).  Couldn’t hep observing this tiny crab depositing marbles of sand….   Later for lunch it was sweet and sour Mud Crab!
