Lives in Langkawi, Malaysia
Since Mar 2007
50-64 year old female
Together with my husband Gerd I left Germany in July 2000 to sail around the world. We have seen so many countries by the years! In November 2005 we settled down in Langkawi and set up a company for exclusive charter. I bought my first boat in December 2008: DAMAI INDAH, my pride and love-affair! My second boat DAMAI INDAH LAGI I bought in July 2011. I offer exclusive sharing and private charter on the highest level possible. .You easily find all my businesses in facebook https://www.facebook.com/damaiindahlangkawi/ and damaiindah.com.my

Underwater World is rather small but worth a visit, especially on a rainy day. I have never seen creatures anything like the sea horses here — 20cm long and camouflaged, they are a natural wonder in themselves. The penguins are always fun for the kids, too!
As the island is small, don’t expect to find a big modern zoo here, but this Wildlife Park is worth a visit nonetheless. Conditions have been improved recently for the animals, meaning that many now roam free, and you can even touch some of them. As this used to be a bird park, the collection of tropical birds is truly impressive too. The parrots love to sit on your shoulder and get photographed!
This lake is famous both for its natural beauty and for the myth surrounding it. For generations, locals have been telling the tale of women coming here hoping to conceive a long-desired child — and I've actually heard some amazing success stories! The lake is nestled in the mountains and it's really beautiful. You can go on a shared boat tour or charter a longboat for a comprehensive tour, or simply rent a paddle boat for a shorter tour around the lake.
This rice museum is worth a visit. The staff take you around and explain the process of planting and harvesting rice.
At Langkawi Dragon Fruit Farm, kids of all ages will enjoy the ride around the 80-acre site in a little open top bus. The bus stops at the trees that carry fruit so that you can try them, and the guide explains the nutritional and medicinal value.
This park is home to over 100 murrah and swamp buffaloes, which are mainly used for milk production. The milk is then processed to make yogurt, ice cream, and flavored milk. Even if the thought of going inside the park isn't appealing, you can sample the delicious products - such as buffalo icecream - at the shop, and leave the buffalo riding, anok riding, cart riding, and photography for other visitors.
This guided tour is a good way to learn about the environment and surroundings of Langkawi at a good rate. The guides are professional, and they will surprise you with the information they share about trees, herbs, and animals!
Millions of years ago this was a giant cave. Now it is a big lake surrounded by steep limestone cliffs, and it's one of the most beautiful spots on the planet. It depends on your children's ages, but the best way to explore the area is by kayak! Only then can you explore the amazing mangrove rivers, where the motorized boats can’t go, and you will certainly see more wildlife from a boat with no engine.
