Star Cruise (SSG) to Langkawi Island (浮羅交怡)

Part 4 of Star Cruises Trip 2008 with Superstar Gemini (SSG) - Underwater World Langkawi, Black Sand Beach, Kota Mahsuri and "The Eagle", Langkawi Island (浮羅交怡)

We arrived Langkawi after our overnight trip in Phuket and Langkawi was our last destination to visit during our Star Cruise trip back then.

- Langkawi Port -

"Langkawi, the Jewel of Kedah is an archipelago of 104 islands in the Andaman Sea, some 30 km off the mainland coast of northwestern Malaysia."  - Wikipedia 

Langkawi is a calm and relaxing with it's very "green" environment. :) It was not my first visit to Langkawi, I remember that I was there when I was still a little girl and we revisit the destinations that we visited before.

- Underwater World Langkawi -

Interesting underwater world that I love the most, birds were walking freely in there and even pass through us. How cute was that? All the creatures in there are alive, there's swans, mandarin ducks, flamingo and others which usual for us to see them.

- Underwater World Langkawi -

- Penguins at Underwater World Langkawi -

- My Royal Penguin Friend -

- Otter -

I could spend quite some time at Underwater World, we could see so many creatures in there!! 

And we proceed to the next tourist spot.

- Kota Mahsuri - 

"Formerly known as Makam Mahsuri (Mahsuri's Mausoleum), Kota Mahsuri was erected in honour of Mahsuri, a fair maiden who was unjustly accused of adultery more than 200 years ago." - Virtual Malaysia

Amazed that the legend still remain till now, the seventh generation of Mahsuri was found and live among us.

- Black Sand Beach -

Just like the name, there's certainly black sand at their beach. However, the black sand was so much lesser than years ago, maybe tourist or the locals collectively took away the black sand which believe could chase the dark spirit away and end up people who came to visit year by year are unable to enjoy the black sandy beach. :(

- Langkawi Landmark : The Eagle -

The last place to visit on a rainy afternoon and off we were back to the port and leaving back to Port Klang.

Good bye Langkawi.
