Day 5 traveling in Langkawi was one of the best days so far, with an amazing mix of Malaysian food, museums, adventure sports, and finally ending the day with a dinner sunset cruise and a relax time at the natural jacuzzi spa. We started the day for breakfast at a restaurant called Nasi Dagang Pak Malau, a beautiful little restaurant on the edge of the rice field that serves a Malaysian food called nasi dagang. The owner and his wife and family were extremely nice, and they welcomed us to their restaurant and served us an outstanding restaurant. So far, this is probably my favorite restaurant in Langkawi. Nasi dagang is typically supposed to just be rice with fish curry, but I also added in a hunk of mutton korma to make things even better. The rice was fragrant and the curries were outstanding (full video coming soon).
After a marvelous breakfast, we continued to Mahsuri’s Tomb and Museum, which is a very famous place to visit. I’m not sure I fully understand the full story yet, but it’s about a girl named Mahsuri, who was so beautiful that she was the center of jealousy on Langkawi island. She was sentenced to death because of her beauty, and as she died she laid a curse on Langkawi saying the island would be barren and unproductive for 7 generations. Somehow, that turned to be true, and just recently Langkawi finished 7 generations and has now become extremely prosperous and is one of the biggest tourism destinations in Malaysian now.
Naam Watersports is a fantastic watersports company in Langkawi, and they are extremely safe and knowledgeable about the sports they offer. It was my first time to go parasailing and it was an incredible experience. The views from above were amazing, and it was quite a thrilling ride as well. We spent a few minutes browsing through the Langkawi Craft Complex, and then went to the Mardi Agrotechnology Park, a fruit and vegetable farm. We took a short fruit tour, where we were able to see fruit trees, and then sample some fresh fruit right from the far. The farm was small, but fun to see, especially if you love fruit. For lunch we ate at Restoran Siti Fatimah, a local nasi campur (rice and curry) restaurant. I chose a few different fish dishes, piled them onto my rice, and ate them together with some herbs and chili sauce. This is one of my favorite styles of Malaysian food, it’s just so good.
After spending a few minutes at a waterfall, we then drove to the boat jetty to catch our sunset dinner cruise with Naam Watersports aboard the Sea Falcon. It was by far the nicest boat I had ever been on. The views of the ocean and the peacefulness of being on the boat was the real highlight for me. It was an amazing experience!
