Lang Tengah Island
My trip to Lang Tengah Island
Well I thought I had a lot of photos to share but too bad that wasn’t the case. I guess I didn’t really take as many photos as I thought I did after all. All of them were already shown in my previous posts lol. I had a good (not great) time in [tag]Lang Tengah[/tag]. It was a new experience for me because I have been wondering how does it feel to be snorkeling. The feeling of having fishes swimming around you while looking at beautiful corals is just wonderful. It’s like you and the fishes share the same living space. Earlier, I already typed a long post describing the itineraries of my trip but it was lost. Thanks to Window’s blue screen of death, sigh. Anyway I will share some of my thoughts on my trip:
- Surprisingly, Kuala [tag]Terengganu[/tag] is much more developed than I expected. A pity I didn’t get to try the famous nasi dagang and buy authentic Terengganu lekor.
- Boat rides here are very wavy, be prepared to bring along sour plums. I like snorkeling a lot but the seasickness spoiled my mood and I had to get out of the water after a while only.
- Visitors to the marine park in Pulau Pinang are not allowed to use the fins. So don’t bother bringing them along. I am still quite unhappy about this because the staff at Redang Lang Resort didn’t tell us about this, even when they saw us carrying the fins.
- Quite disappointed that I only spent like half an hour at the marine park. Among the places we snorkeled, the marine park had the most fishes and most beautiful corals. Too bad the weather turned bad and there was a high tide, forcing us to leave.
- The BBQ dinner held on the 2nd day was not really a BBQ after all. The kitchen staff barbecued aluminum foil wrapped stingrays for the guests. And there weren’t enough for everyone. I didn’t get to try any
- My friends spotted baby sharks a few times, and I didn’t get to see any..
I will definitely return for another visit, but perhaps to Redang or Perhentian instead. Since there’s Fireflyz now, I think that will happen pretty much anytime soon Oh yeah if you are wondering, that’s me in the photo lol. Walking alone.. Siang Leng secretly snapped it, quite nice I’d say
And finally, the photo I love the most. The silly boy and silly girl in Lang Tengah Island.
This is how [tag]Lang Tengah[/tag] [tag]Island[/tag] looks like in the morning. This photo was taken on our last day of the trip. The sun was rising from the jungle behind the resort and I like how the sunlight started to shine on the island.
These are photos taken on the left side stretch of the beach, there are a lot of dead corals washed up here. So walking on the beach here is really painful if you don’t have your sandals on.. I hurt my toe when I stepped on a sharp one, ouch. Anyway it’s prohibited to collect them, even though they are dead. Contrary to the Marine Park in Pulau Pinang (don’t be confused, there’s really an island here with this name, not the Penang island I am from), you won’t find any dead corals there.
One of the activities here is jungle trekking. The journey takes only around 30 minutes but it’s tough. The reward is the amazing sea view..
The view here is just magnificent, and you can’t help but feel excited when the waves smash the rocks. Too bad we couldn’t stay too long because it was near evening and we had to get moving.
Lastly, the breathtaking sunset.. Nice right?
I know I said I would be going for a [tag]Redang[/tag] trip, but the trip wasn’t really to Redang lol. My trip was to the island between Redang Island and Pulau Perhentian, [tag]Lang Tengah[/tag] Island. I didn’t know about this until the day before, ouch. Anyway I reached Kuala [tag]Terengganu[/tag] at 5am after a painful 8 hours journey on bus. And 10am only I boarded the boat to Lang Tengah Island.
The boat ride to Lang Tengah was damn challenging. I really salute you if you manage to reach the destination without feeling sea sick at all. Langkawi’s ferry ride is peanuts compared to this.. After all, the South China Sea’s wave is much stronger than Malacca Straits’. A guy even threw up in the boat. Eww.. luckily his ‘stuff’ didn’t stain our bags lol.
During my trip, I stayed in the one and only resort in Lang Tengah [tag]Island[/tag], the [tag]Redang Lang Resort[/tag].
Crystal clear sea water, scorching sun and white sandy beach.. That’s the three elements that make up Lang Tengah Island.
