Welcome to Pulau Langkawi....
According to local folklore, Langkawi derived its name from the eagle or "helang". In old Malay, "kawi" denotes reddish brown, hence, Langkawi means reddish brown eagle.An 18 metre man-made eagle is visible at Dataran Lang (Eagle Square) situated near the Kuah Jetty


Langkawi island is one of the famous and beautiful islands in Malaysia, separated from the far northwest coast of peninsular Malaysia by the Straits of Malacca. The latest about Langkawi is, there are now a sky-bridge that pedestrian can take a walk above the clouds on the new half-moon curved suspended pedestrian bridge at the top of the 500-million-year-old Mount Mat Cincang, Langkawi. The Langkawi sky-bridge is suspended at 700 metres above sea level. It spans 125 metres across a spectacular chasm. We can see the nonacrophobic adventurers 360 degree views of the Langkawi islands and the Andaman Sea. Built for tourists and opened in 2005, the bridge is accessed by a 15-minute ride in an electronic cable car, which leaves from the Oriental Village mall complex.

 The 1.8m-wide bridge had two 3.6m-wide triangular platforms that provided a spectacular viewing-cum-resting area for visitors.
Unlike straight bridges where you can see from the starting point, the bridge has been curved to provide different perspectives over the land and sea. Convenient triangular platforms located along the curved bridge provide rest areas so you can sit and appreciate both the beauty of nature and an incredible feat of engineering. Langkawi Sky-Bridge is safe.

Welcome to Mount Kinabalu.This site is  for everyone who like mountain climbing, especially for those who are planning to climb Mount Kinabalu, the highest climber-friendly mountain in South East Asia.You will be given useful tips, relevant information and general mountain climbing guidelines to the summit of Borneo.

Mount Kinabalu is situated in the East Malaysia state of Sabah on the island of Borneo. It is the place where you could see breathtaking sunrise from above the clouds, 13,435 feet (4095 meters) above sea level. Many of the trees and flowers are unique or extremely rare but to the uninitiated novice in matters botanical there is no doubt that the pitcher plants steal the show. Even the most casual observer cannot fail to notice these impressive insect guzzling monsters with up to a pint of liquid waiting to lure and drown the passing fly or mosquito.Just above the tree line at 3350m is a comfortable rest house where most parties spend the night.

Before dawn next morning everybody is up and climbing by torchlight towards the summit. A steep rock step is aided by a fixed rope which, when we were there, continued all the way to the summit even where the way became quite flat.The rope and the compulsory guide make this now extremely unlikely even in the thickest mist. Nevertheless the early start is a good idea to enjoy the views before the regular mist descends on the summit.
The weather can change very quickly from brilliant sunshine, to mist and clouds, to a torrential down-pour.

At roughly every 1 km break, there will be a rest hut. These have toilets and also water tanks.
You do not need to carry up enormous amounts of water as you can refill at these tanks. These extend all the way to 5.5 km which is the Laban Rata Guesthouse.

Be sure to bring some food and a torch for your climb. Most people stop at Laban Rata and then continue the climb the next morning at about 2:00 a.m.Laban Rata is the first and only restaurant along the way and you can also rent sleeping bags, jackets and blankets. If you have reservations at Gunting Lagadan or Sayat-Sayat huts further up the mountain, they will bring you.

Pulau Tioman is one of the most beautiful islands of Malaysia. It is located on the eastern side of the Malaysian peninsular. It has been regarded as a jewel in the sea. One early Malaysian legend claims Tioman to be a transformed dragon princess. Apparently the beautiful princess stopped enroute to Singapore from China to admire the charms of this spot. She was so pleased, so she decided to discontinue her journey, take the form of an island, and remain there as a place of shelter and comfort to passing travellers.
The island is well-known for underwater adventure, snorkelling and windsurfing. From Mersing to Tioman, you can go either by speed boat (max passenger 20) or speed ferry (max passenger 150). Alternatively you can take a ferry from Singapore or Kuantan.
