What You Can Expect

Best Langkawi Half-Day Cycling Tour

Paddy field and ox in Langkawi

See all that Langkawi has to offer and the picturesque countryside on a bike! Your guide will lead you on an 8-mile (12-km) ride through Langkawi’s country roads. Get a glimpse of daily village life as you cycle past riverbanks, paddy fields and forests. This ride is moderate-level in difficulty.

On the way, explore the rural Malay kampongs, traditional timber houses built on stilts. These traditional dwellings were constructed by the indigenous ethnic Malaysian people and served as a home to extended family members. 

Cycle past the long stretch of scenic paddy fields and learn about the rice-planting process from your guide. Passing quaint fishing villages, see the fishermen tie up their boats and bring in their catch. As you pedal down the country roads, you may spot hornbills, kingfishers and monitor lizards. Don't forget your camera as the views are spectacular, especially as you cycle through green pastures spreading as far as the eye can see. Along the way you will stop off for light snacks.

You will be accompanied by a knowledgeable and experienced guide who will provide extensive information on the history and culture of rural Langkawi. This tour is the perfect way to escape the crowds of this popular beach island.

Excellent easy cycle ride along the back roads and tracks seeing the local life, vegetation and animals of Langkawi.
Carlton was a friendly and very informative guide who answered all questions knowlegebly and with interest. The snack he provided at the end was a delicious variety of local food and exceeded expectations.
Very worthwhile tour

Very nice and interesting tour with a good guide. We saw a part of the country and a part of the small town by Cenang Beach.
After the ride we sat all together and enjoyed a good meal of fruits and lokal rice meal.
We are very satisfied.
Best regards

This was such a lovely ride in the countryside and the exercise was welcoming - not demanding but just a pleasant easy ride. It was so peaceful and our guide, Carlton, was excellent. He fed us lunch at his home with a few local tasty morcels.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended December 2013

Carlton was wonderful, he welcomed us into his home and gave us a personal tour of his village, the rice factory and the main town on the west coast of the island. His mother made us a delicious lunch and we were sad to leave!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2013

Our tour guide Carlton was very friendly. He taught us alot about the places we visited and things we saw. This tour allows you to travel on the back streets and across farm land and see Langkawi that you wouldn't get to see in a car/van. The tour ended with a delicious platter of local food.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended April 2013

Great little tour! Not v.exhausting, well-kept mountain bikes riding leisurely over mostly flat terrain. Takes in local villages, rice museum (better than it sounds), plenty of local flora and fauna, Cenang beach, and fishing village. Fresh fruit and local dishes at end. No helmets. Well spoken guides
