The official translation of Langkawi is “The Jewel of Kedah.” I find the built up area of Pantai Cenang can get extremely crowded, especially during the peak season (November – February) and so what’s the best way to get away from it all, to see a bit of a paradise island? It is without doubt – on a motorcycle.
‘FE Holidays’ are a motorcycle rental place situated on the front street of Pantai Cenang’s hustle and bustling road and there are many motorcycle companies – but not all of them have a 24-hour service, in case your motorcycle breaks down. Imagine breaking down at 3am in the morning, miles away from your place of stay – not a problem if you went with these guys. However, you might want to get the correct type of Travel Insurance before you decide to burn some rubber!
And so off I went with my friend on a journey to see what Langkawi had to offer, I felt like I was creating my own film “Motorcycle Diaries”, the Malaysian version….
The most famous touristy thing to do in Langkawi is to visit the cable car; an absolutely orgy of breathtaking views is available as you go higher and higher, taking in the lush greenery of the hills, complimented by the blue sunny sky. Go as early as possible as the queue gets very long in the late morning. If you were to get public transport, you’d be paying over the odds and you’d also be too far away from the other sights when you’re done with the cable car – hammering home another tick in the box for the motorbike rental.
