Geckos (?) abound at the hotel. At one point we saw a weird scene in the hallway with a lot of these flapping bugs around, seemed like a feast for the lizards, and you could understand why they move so fast...
Monkeys also abound here.
Kind of frightening? Some kind of mad scientist plot turning the (chicken) citizens into zombies
More monkeys. Our original room had a leak so we got an upgrade to one with a semi-private pool outside it.
Lobby of the Andaman.
On our way to a "Junglewalla" tour..
Kayaking - Mudskippers there, probably tough to make out, but that intriguing link between water and land dwelling.
Male fiddler crabs waving their tiny giant claws to attract the babes.
Beautiful kayaking weather.
A local-made lunch is part of the tour.
Part of the tour was a swim in an out of the way swimming hole and waterfall.
St Andrew's Cross Spider!
Walking back to the van.
Definitely looking the part of luxury resort!
They do some conservation stuff, I think this is the coral nursery.
One smart thing we did was to rent a car- we didn't realize we'd need one at first, but our resort is 20-60 minutes from everywhere, and taxis would add up. Anyway, after heading back to the airport for a rental, we headed out to Kuah for Seafood- "My Chef" is this place.
We ordered an entire fish...
Made pretty short work of it.
(We had actually been looking for seafood from "Teo", but the maps were off so we didn't find it til when we were walking around a bit after dinner)
Never seen a skull drawn quite that way.
Biggest KFC I've ever seen.
This map of Langkawi is a prominent feature of the hotel lobby. But what- what's that? Zoom. Enhance.
