Boats of tourists were flooding the island in and out..Fortunately the beach stretch long enough to accommodate the people..

Lots of people were swimming with their shirts on, which is not really a good sight for me and Dale..They should show more flesh and all, instead of clothes..

If you are bored of swimming, you can pay extra money for Banana Boat or Paragliding..

The banana boat is a torpedo-shaped tube that can accommodate 4-7 people..

There’s a trick to play this banana boat in order to stay put on the boat without falling int the sea..

When the boat swerve to the right, the person at the back most should give instruction to its crew to pressure the left side to make-balance the boat..

More photos of the beach and also nice mamak food..

Langkawi Trip – Part 4, Island Hopping – Pulau Dayang Bunting Geoforest Park and Eagle Feeding [Day 2]

Back to my Langkawi trip, the first day ended with a big smile on our face, thanks to Fat Mum..

On the second day, we got up quite early in the morning for our activity, island hopping..

We set off at a beach nearby Awana Porto Malai Resort, where you can see lots of boats parked at the seashore..

The island hopping includes the Lake of Pregnant Maiden (Pulau Dayang Bunting), eagle feeding at Pulau Singa Besar, and also beach visit at Pulau Beras Basah..

Pulau Dayang Bunting, is an island that surrounded a so-called lake of freshwater in the middle of the sea..

When you are in the middle of the sea, it’s better to be cautious even if you know how to swim..

Who knows, as like what you always watch in movies, your legs might get cramped or something..

Or too much or scientific facts are not good too..It’s easy to float in the sea because of the saltwater but you won’t float if you don’t know how to swim!

That long stretch of hills is the famous Pulau Dayang Bunting, where you can really see the shape of lady pregnant lady..

Why it’s a lady and not a man you ask? Can you see the boob shape right below the chin? Hahahaha..

Then on the way to the Pulau Dayang Bunting, I think I found a new island..

See this island, isn’t it look like Be@rbrick? Yes it does look like one..Don’t defy it..

I bet not many people notice this island..

It took us somewhere 10-20 minutes to travel from Awana Porto Malai to the Pulau Dayang Bunting Geoforest Park..

I never thought Pulau Dayang Bunting to be a geoforest park..I thought we’ll be playing around the beach side..

The island has been exploited and turned into a tourist spot..

The developer still managed to maintain the habitat (I’m not sure how much of it) and promote eco-friendly environment..Keep the island clean!

It wasn’t quite a lucky day as it rained  very early in the morning..We had to take cover under the toilet..

Much more of the lake and the eagle feeding after the jump *jumps – toink*..
