We found that Mahsuri's Tomb was on the way to our hotel from the airport, so we took the opportunity to visit it - especially for our daughter, who studied something about this in school. It was quite interesting, to see the tomb (we are still not sure if that is actually where she was buried!) surrounded by some replicas... More

Nice place with a lot of history. We enjoy it. The tomb well preserved. The museum was nice and well explained with pictures for the kids to understand.

Nothing much in the vicinity with few shops selling local products. If you are interested in history, this may be the place to visit.

Nothing much too see. Waste of time. What you can see are all in the historical books. The place close at 6pm.

Free car park. Fish pond on the entrance to welcome you, water very green do know when the last time they clean this pond. Clean surrounding. Good... More

This is the tomb of Mahsuri, the lady whose legend surrounds this island. Within the compound there is a well and a traditional styled house with padi fields surrounding it and mountains in the distance. Don't go out of your way to visit this site but if you have the time it can be part of your sightseeing on this... More

i have read the story on the web, so i could understand the background but there was not much info about mahsuri there. i enjoyed mahsuri's well, tomb and kampung features but i did not feel this place is worth to visit. admission fee for malaysian was RM10, unsure for non-malaysian. i could say it was not worth to pay...

Entrance fee for non-Malaysian is quite pricey. This is just another historical place to visit in Langkawi if you have the interest to.

I am sorry, but this is one of the places you can skip visiting in Langkawi. Nothing much to see here. Mahsuri's legend? You can find more information on the internet than this place, really!
