Doing a bit of backtracking today to share with you one of my favourite parts of our anniversary trip last October – the Kilim River Cruise. Personally, I think it’s a must see in Langkawi.
The sights are just too beautiful that it will literally make you stop for a bit and appreciate mother nature.
So to make this quick, here are a couple of snaps from that leg of our trip:
You can take a cab from anywhere in the island to get to Kilim Geoforest Park where the Kilim River is. The River Cruise is a great way to see the sights around the park. It’s also lovely to sit on a boat and go through calm waters while breathing fresh air and taking in all the sights, don’t you think?
You will be asked how long you want your tour to be – 1, 2, 3, or 4 hours. You will be given your own private motor boat (for your group of up to 15 people) with the guy operating it as your tour guide.

We chose the 2-hour tour as it was the one that best fits our schedule. I’d say it’s already a sweet deal as you get to see enough of the geopark without spending too much time in one place.
There you have it. My mini photo diary of our river cruise. The photos can’t seem to do justice to the things that we saw there so if ever you’re in Langkawi, I suggest you try it out too.
