RANDY IN SOUTHEAST ASIA
We decided to leave the resort for the morning and do the resort’s Geo Eco Tour through the mangroves of Langkawi. Incredible part of nature.
We headed out on a boat with one other couple and our expert Naturalist, Aidi, into the mangrove at low tide. Check out the roots on the trees when the tide is down – crazy.
Here’s the description of the tour from the Four Seasons website – sums it up much better than I could:
Eagles, monkeys, otters, walking fish – Langkawi’s Kilim Karst Geoforest Park is home to one of the most diverse tropical ecosystems on the planet. During an exclusive excursion with Four Seasons Resort Langkawi, you’ll venture by boat into this nature preserve – part of the UNESCO-endorsed Langkawi Geopark – as a Four Seasons naturalist leads you to up-close encounters with exotic animals and Malaysia’s most ancient geological formations. Your incredible journey begins when you set sail from Four Seasons Resort Langkawi’s private beach. Passing soaring ancient sea stacks, you’ll enter the park’s dramatic waterways – a maze of 550-million- year-old cliffs and tangled mangroves, home to some of the world’s most intriguing creatures. Traverse little- known tributaries in search of monitor lizards and sleeping vipers, and coast into ancient limestone caves. Back at the Resort, visit the Geopark Discovery Centre – the only one of its kind – for a fascinating debrief of your extraordinary adventure.
