GEOPARK INSIDER TIPS
By Kamila Delart
Langkawians cherish a slow pace of life so you will barely ever encounter a speeding car or hear the impatient sound of a horn. Adapt this leisurely mode to enjoy the magnificent vistas along the roads and to make sure reptiles and baby monkeys that choose to cross over are safe.
To truly appreciate the breathtaking beauty of Langkawi, you have to explore the ten million years old rainforests! Best you join an experienced Nature Guide who is familiar with the hiding spots of sleeping colugos and fruit bats and who knows where to point at night a torch so that you spot a flying squirrel. Led to secluded places, you will be able to admire wild orchids, and learn about rare medicinal rainforest plants and other jungle secrets.
LANGKAWI’S ADVENTURE GUIDE - by Kamila Delart
BLUE WATER STAR SAILING
Established in 2005 by Eva & Gerd Zimmermann, an adventurous German couple that circumnavigated the world on their 46’ sailing yacht Daddeldu prior to settling down in Langkawi, Blue Water Star Sailing quickly became Langkawi’s premium yacht charter agency - enticing sea enthusiasts with the largest and most varied fleet of yachts in entire Malaysia!
There is ‘Freedom’, a luxury motor yacht luring with the thrill of speed. ‘Naga Pelangi’, a traditional junk-rigged schooner that brings back the memory of explorers who challenged the seas centuries ago when looking for jewels and spices. And if you are planning a lavish wedding celebration, the elegant 3-mast barquentine, ‘Lili Marleen’, is without a doubt the venue of your dreams. With 20 yachts of different sizes and styles - there is an ideal match for any taste and budget!
With a passion to provide a truly unique and carefree vacation experience, all cruises are meticulously planned and tailored to suit your individual needs - so all you have to worry about is which way to relax!
Following two and half years of renovations, the ELS CLUB TELUK DATAI, newly designed by the former world champion Ernie Els, is ready for your swing!
With a backdrop of the marbled limestone peaks of the Mat Cincang mountain range, surrounded by 10 million years old rainforest, stretching all the way to the shores of the emerald green Andaman Sea, the golf course lures with truly captivating landscapes and enchanting serene atmosphere.

ROBINSON CRUSOE FANTASY
An advertorial by Kamila Delart
For more information about
'Crystal Yacht Holidays'
Having spent far too much time in front of my computer lately, it’s about time I took a proper day off. I close my eyes, picturing a picnic on the beach, a hike through the jungle… But the enchanting beauty of the Langkawi Archipelago with its 99 islands seem to have casted a spell over me. So I quickly decide to treat myself with a leisurely day on the Andaman Sea. I enjoyed quite a few wonderful cruises in the past, so this time I am looking for something special. And then I remember. CRYSTAL YACHT HOLIDAYS, an innovative charter company specialized in quality sightseeing and adventure sailing, is supposed to be offering a rather unique Geopark Day Cruise with a BBQ on a deserted island. Robinson Crusoe for the day? Sounds perfect!

THE POETRY OF RIDING WAVES
Exploring Langkawi's Nature on Jet Skis
An advertorial by Kamila Delart
Geysers of water bouncing off the bow. The thrill of speed. Conquest of the ocean… Images that come to my mind when picturing a jet ski adventure. I have to admit, an adrenalin-kick does have its own appeal. But then - I am not the most daring person. So when I come across MEGA WATER SPORTS that offer apart from the ‘hard core’ jet ski trips also guided sightseeing tours through the breathtaking Langkawi Archipelago, I am truly intrigued. What an original idea!
