Get a glimpse into the daily life of Langkawi as you cycle through the countryside. After hotel pickup you’re transferred to a central meeting point to gear up for the moderate 16-mile ride. Receive a safety briefing and set out from the tourist enclave of Pantai Cenang with your guide.
Cycling along this beachside stretch, you’ll pass by souvenir stalls, bars and day spas. Soon you’ll escape the beach crowds and relish the tranquil surroundings of rustic villages flanked by rice fields. Take a break around Underwater World Langkawi to purchase a drink at a duty-free shop.
Further down the road is Laman Padi where you’ll gain entry to the Rice Garden Museum and its exhibits of equipment involved in rice cultivation, once Langkawi’s main industry. Pedal on country roads to a neighborhood kampong and receive a warm welcome by village residents. Stop for a tea break at a local home and learn about the history and culture of rural Langkawi from your guide.
Finally, you’ll come upon a rubber plantation and mangroves teeming with colorful birds, such as kingfishers and hornbills, as well as monitor lizards. On the return trip, bicycle through green pastures spreading as far as the eye can see. Hotel drop-off is included.
