Langkawi, Malaysia

Beach paradise


Langkawi is on my list to visit again. This island is just 1.5 hours away by plane from Johor. Short 20 minute drive from home to the airport, and quick flight over to the Island.

You can rent a car for the weekend for about 50$. Just pick it up right there with little paperwork and hassle. Then you can drop it off right at the door of the airport. Just text them to meet you for the drop off. So easy. And it's a good idea to rent a car to get around the island. Super easy.

We came with the intent to run a 5K. It wasn't my idea....but I joined in for the experience. We had to go out to the https://www.berjayahotel.com/langkawi Berjaya Hotel to pick up our packets for the race. We ended up staying and swimming on their beach after. We met a mother and daughter from and ended up hanging out with them the rest of the trip. They were super nice.


The race was really just a nature walk, after hiking in Alaska, this was nothing. But it was beautiful to see the scenery and end up on the beach where we swam and relaxed for the day.

We didn't stay at this beach resort, but I would recommend staying here. The private beach was amazing. We had their breakfast buffet and it was fantastic.

I stayed at the Aseania Hotel, and it was kind of old and run down. But since we were so busy and I really only slept there, it was fine. http://www.aseanialangkawiresort.com

On Sunday, (Since they didn't have the LDS church on the island) we went on the cable car. The steepest cable car ride on earth and takes visitors up 708m above sea level to Langkawi's second highest peak of Mt. Machinchang, where the view of the surrounding islands is simply breathtaking. http://www.panoramalangkawi.com It was still hot up there! LOL You can't get away from the heat.


I traveled with a great groups of friends. So much fun to be with these kids. And people think they are my kids! I'll claim them.
