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

Had lunch just down the road, so thought we would visit this place whilst in the area.

No comment on this spot (the tomb of Mahsuri) because i had the feeling everything was artificial but i still believe langkawi is a tropical jewel not to miss when you are in malaysia.

Lots of legends and stories but this place is rather boring. Some Malay houses and some stories to go with a tomb.
