You will first be picked up from your hotel in Langkawi, after which, you will be taken to visit one of the most legendary landmarks in the island - the Makam Mahsuri (Mahsuri's tomb). Here, learn about how the interesting folklore of the young village beauty, Mahsuri.
Afterward, see the beautiful rural countryside of the island as you drive past quaint Malay villages, sprawling rice paddy fields with frolicking water buffaloes, and verant rubber plantations. Stop by the Atma Alam Batik Art Village, where the unique Malaysian art of handmade batik making was birthed. With your guide, explore the showrooms and art galleries to learn about this interesting aspect of the country's art and culture.
Finally, visit the Eagle Square (Dataran Lang), one of the city's most-recognized landmarks. Admire this nearly 40-feet tall (12 meters) statue of an eagle prepared to take flight and its postcard-worthy surroundings of miniature fountains, terraces and bridges.
Before being dropped off at your hotel at the end of the tour, make a stop at the duty-free Kuah Town for some souvenir shopping.
Worth doing if you like to know the history of Mahsuri. Village is setup ok, but a some parts were still under construction. The house/huts were very interesting. Guide was alright and friendly and even dropped us off at another location. However, not sure if the price is the best as it was $35USD.

Useless tour and pointless, not worth the time and money. Not recommended at all
