On Feb 2, we departed the ferry from Satun, Thailand and arrived in Langkawi, Malaysia.

We stayed in Langkawi for four nights. It has some beautiful beaches. The island has beautful coastal drives. There are lots to do in Langkawi.

On the third day, we rented a motorcycle to tour the island. About 20 minutes after renting the motorcycle, we were stopped by the Malaysia police, on a routine check.

The policeman was going to give Gary a ticket, as his driving licence only specified that he can drive a car, and not a motorcycle.

After some pleading, he let us go, without giving us a ticket.

We thought he might have wanted a small "present".

Despite the warning, Gary drove to the north end of the island, where there are no police doing any routine checks.

We stopped at the "Seven Wells Waterfall", after having to climb over 500 steps.

We later rode on the the Langkawi Cable car to get a good view of the island. The cable car ride was pleasant.

There are many other tours and side trips that many people take, but we are happy to just

Langkawi recommendable fo 3 weeks?
Dear Phyllis, dear Gary! Thank you again for having me included in your mail list . It is exiting to follow you at least virtually a bit. I am planning my next vacation already and want to decide until summer begins here ,where to go in winter again. This time sights and beach( just one )have to be in vicinity. Did you like it very much in Langkawi?
