I was excited for our trip to Malaysia as it’s the first part of our trip that neither me nor my boyfriend had been too. We had a rough itinerary in mind which consisted of the following places; Langkawi, Penang, Perhentian Islands and Kuala Lumpur. Looking back now, it may have been a bit ambitious of us to plan a month’s stay but this is the beauty of travelling without too many concrete plans and just going with the flow. So if you want to know where I ended up going and what I did, then keep on reading.
We did venture out on a couple of occasions during our week long stay in Langkawi (not much within the area itself so we dined exclusively at the resort, which may I add was not a bad thing). The first trip was supposed to be a cycle to the Seven Wells Waterfall near Telaga Harbour. I say ‘supposed to be’ because our cycle tour guide was not convinced of my (lack of) cycling abilities and quite frankly, neither was I. After I did 3 wobbly laps around the small, roundabout plant feature in front of the hotel, there was no doubt that we had to cancel the cycling plans. That didn’t dampen our enthusiasm though, as we decided it be much easier, quicker, not to mention much safer (for myself and everyone else on the road) to take a cab to our destination. After around a 20 minute ride, we arrived at the Seven Wells Waterfall where our cab driver was more than happy to sit around and wait for us. Nobody warned us about climbing the road with the most steepest incline I’ve ever seen though (you’ve been warned). Picture a wall and you’re pretty close! (damn I wish I had taken a picture of it). Thank god it was only about a 10 minute climb to where we needed to exit for the waterfall.
Well that sadly concludes my trip to Malaysia. I’ll try to put together a little post of my unplanned trip to Thailand so stay tuned for more travel highlights of Asia.
