Definitely worth a trip to this island and the massive fresh water lake in the centre if you're in Langkawi. We went via jet ski which was great, but there were larger boats doing day trips. Entry is free, you get a workout going up and down all the steps and can see some monkeys on the walk to the... More

We enjoyed the walk up and down - beware there are steps to be negotiated. The monkeys were a bit annoying and the bins obviously need emptied more often. Also our tour guide said we didn't need money - but you do if you need to go to the toilet! There is a shack to buy drinks and you can... More

The setting and lake itself should make this a 5 star however there are a... More
