Shopping goes hand-in-hand with sea life on this trip. Things get started at the Langkawi Craft Complex – a centre that’s teeming with authentic Malaysian handicrafts and exhibitions. See traditional batik fabrics being decorated, check out ornate wood carvings, and watch weavers work on old-school looms. Next, you’ll head to the waterfront for a look at Dataran Lang – an iconic monument that’s shaped like a giant soaring eagle. To finish off, you’ll spend time at one of the country’s biggest aquariums – Underwater World. There are hundreds of different species on show, ranging from rockhopper penguins to sharks and giant rays. As you walk in, you’ll see a tank filled with the largest freshwater fish in the world – the Amazonian arapaima, which can grow up to 10 feet long.
