3. Kayaking in Langkawi mangrove forest
Other interesting Langkawi activities is exploring the surrounding nature, which is truly one-of-a-kind. Lovers of outdoor activities will surely appreciate a tour to the mangrove forest on kayaks. These special forests are especially interesting as they can be found thriving in water where freshwater is mixed with saltwater. As a result, of that, their roots are densely branched and grow upwards. During this trip, we first visited thousand-year-old caves full of bats, then boarded a motorboat and admired the huge beautiful cliffs rising directly from the water.
The motorboat took us to a fishing village that stands on wooden poles just off the mangrove forests. From there, we went on kayaks. Undoubtedly, one of the main advantages of kayaks is their small size that enables you to explore even the smallest streams, and most importantly, the absence of an engine means you don’t disturb other animals. From the boats, we also had the opportunity to admire monkeys and the majestic reddish brown eagle – symbols of the Langkawi islands.
