we paid rm7 per entry to visit the mahsuri tomb. while we were there, the most annoying part was probably the staff. through the entrance door, you will see a several girls chatting among themselves (they are supposedly in charge for the traditional music instrument), we were really sure that they will play the traditional music, but they are too...

Mahsuri legend is very well known in Malaysia. In fact, it is one of the famous country traditional story, just like the tale Puteri Gunung Ledang. But unfortunately, I did not enjoy this place as much as I love the story. For first timer however, you might find the legend intriguing. But personally I think there should be an improvement,...

rushing on our way to airport, we dropped by this place as this has a significance in Langkawi's history about 2 centuries ago. Kid was excited to learn about the happenings, leaving a sort of heavy heart when you walk out of this place..good to visit if you have interest in history of the place

The story itself is intriguing and interesting and is so relevant to Langkawi so I think it is worth visiting for that alone. It wasn't what I was expecting, it is more touristy and busy than I expected ( even in low season), but also has more going on than I had imagined, although the exhibits are quite basic and... More

The scenic view near Mahsuri's house is stunning overseeing the paid field. The place is well-maintained.

If that is your thing.... It was a meh exhibition of the legend Mahsuri, the display looks fake, almost everything in the museum was cheesy. Nevertheless we quite enjoy the gamelan play & the kampung houses.

I think it is quite ridiculous to need to pay for an entrance fee just to see a grave.... the place was poorly maintained and I was quite confused with the place that's supposed to be 'interesting' and 'historical'. The perkampungan kedah houses was fascinating but it didn't really fascinates me.

I have expected so much more but was deeply disappointed. The place was poorly maintained and certainly doesn't befit the famous legend of Mahsuri. The whole place was terribly planned at the first place by getting some local actress to act as Mahsuri and it's either her picture or random plastic dummies are used throughout the place to tell the...
