If you’re looking for peace and serenity, why don’t plan out for a short weekend getaway trip with your pals? Although this might take you and your friends a longer time to plan, but best believe that it is all worth it. Opt for an island hopping adventure, where you can visit the best beaches and islands surrounding Langkawi. Their famous Tasik Dayang Bunting will leave you with a memory that you can’t forget, especially after knowing the myth and legendary stories of the magical place. 

On top of that, head to Mat Cincang Mountain, where the Langkawi Skybridge is an art for its engineering and architecture. Standing high above the rainforest, the bridge curves along the mountain at a length of 125M which provides a panoramic view of nearby islands. The view you’ll be witnessing truly calms the mind and heart, letting you realise the importance of living. 

Psst! If your friends are daredevils, the Sky Bridge offers a section where it’s clear below you. It allows you and your friends to look below into the rainforest, we wouldn’t recommend it if you have a fear of heights, from personal experience. The Langkawi Sky Bridge offers a place to create lifetime memories with your friends with the beautiful scenery that comes along with it.
