Langkawi: What to see and do

Taking its inspiration from both the earth and skies, the name ‘Langkawi’ is commonly thought to have arisen due to the profusion of Lang Merah eagles on the island, along with the abundance of marble – kawi in Sanskrit – found within its confines. Having come under both British and Thai rule during its lifetime, the influences of the latter remain apparent in both the local culture, and the cuisine that feeds it. The post-war era saw an influx of pirate activity, with the archipelago’s dense foliage providing nooks and crannies with which to seek refuge.

Legs aside, wanderers traverse the circumference of the island via bicycles, taxis, rented cars, and the occasional water buffalo – emblematic of the idyllic village life that juxtaposes itself against the urban façade of tourist-laden sites. Shopping malls abound in Kuah, amongst other destinations, with the establishment of Langkawi’s duty-free status in 1987.

Cable car rides proffer a glimpse of murky jungles and cascading waterfalls like the Telaga Tujuh in Gunung Mat Cincang, along with the chance to observe a menagerie of flora and fauna within the confines of the UNESCO-declared Geopark, where Palaeozoic sedimentary sequences reveal themselves amongst the agglomeration of mangroves, tidal flats, and estuaries.

Amateur historians revel in the Makam Mahsuri, the tomb of a maiden who cursed the island for seven generations after being executed for infidelity. Evidence of the malediction is said to lie in Padang Matsirat, where burnt grains of rice still reside almost two hundred years after angry villagers led a revolt against the Siamese. Less malicious locales allure from afar; waves ebbing like a heartbeat against the dazzling sands of Pantai Cenang, Pantai Kok, and Pantai Tengah.

Ipoh: What to see and do

Famed for its historical stature as an industrial mecca of yore, the Bougainvillea City now houses hushed emblems of its prior manifestation while bearing the markings of colonial significance; all nestled within a characteristic exoskeleton of imposing limestone massifs. Located approximately 200km north of Kuala Lumpur and within an hour’s drive south of Penang, the sleepy stretches of Old Town nostalgia and New Town urbanity offer a meld of tradition and modernity much like its island-town neighbour; while holding true to its individual accent of rustic charm.

Though nicknamed the City of Millionaires due to the mass of riches acquired during the heyday of tin mining, natives affectionately term the town ‘Paloh’ in remembrance of the massive tin ore extraction pumps set up in former mining hot spots. Along with the industrial boom came the proliferation of businesses lining the Kinta River, making way for what is now known as Ipoh’s Old Town – a nostalgic collection of colonial era shop houses named after their respective esteemed owners of yore, among which include the reputable de Silva – famed jeweller and jack of silverware, with even more regally esteemed patrons spanning Siamese royalty and the native Sultanate.

The eateries and cuisine abound mirror the long-lived legacy of the town’s former stalwarts, as local kopitiams and hawker establishments serve tried-and-true renditions of chicken hor fun, dim sum, lor mai kai, egg tarts, and char siew bao – with several outlets operating within their initial foundations and helming inherited recipes spanning generations. Similarly ingrained in the local food pulse is the folk tale behind the hometown flavour of Ipoh eats – believed to owe their aroma and taste to the melding of mineral water coursing through the state’s surrounding limestone caverns.

Venturing within the mountainous expanse of these caverns, adventure seekers and history aficionados can find a weaving of layered fables and ancestral artistry, as steep 400 million year-old hills shield solitary temples such as the Kek Look Tong Buddhist temple in Gunung Rapat, and the Cavern of the Three Precious or Sam Poh Tong, while Perak Cave yields sights of ancient calligraphy and vibrant painted illustrations of deities and idols.

Penang, Malaysia: What to see and do

Before the slew of awards as one of the top culinary spots in the world, one of the most compelling destinations as voted in the NY Times, and being the home of foods worth travelling the world to gorge on, the little island of betel nut palms was the Malay peninsula-s -convenient magazine for trade-.

Standing proud as one-half of the nation-s only historical cities (alongside Malacca) recognised as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, Georgetown was named after King George III, and is the country-s oldest colonial settlement and the Federation of Malaya-s second city only after Singapore. Embodying all things Penang-nite, the state-s capital is treasured by her people for her heritage and old-world charm. Follow the Heritage Trail walks which take you past the iconic landmarks like Fort Cornwallis, which comes with her own 17th-century Dutch cannon and the cultural-crossroads of the Street of Harmony where the many major religions strive side-by-side, before ending your tour at the Penang Ferry Terminal, where a return ride to mainland Butterworth gives you a view of a metropolis floating on water.

The island-s most famous beach destination, Batu Feringghi is known for her Hard Rock Hotel luxury resort, clusters of para-gliders and windsurfers, and the plentiful stalls of the night market. A coastal heaven which shines with her string of international resorts and sun-worshippers by day, Georgetown-s north-western neighbour transforms into a carnival of lively haggling and colourful exhibits as the sun sets. Surviving the 2004 tsunami waves in form and name, Feringghi-s shores return with her clutches of sun-frolickers on beach buggies and jet-skiers, as well as the odd tanning bodies or two. Then, find a souvenir worthy of a Malaysian night market at the Jalan Batu Ferringhi pasar malam as you polish off your skills in running down prices off imitation handbags, t-shirts, and local artwork.

Then, chart your discovery of Penang cuisine as you drive down -The New Esplanade- of Gurney Drive, the island-s celebrated seafront promenade. Spoken in the same breath as -hawker food- and -dining by the sea-, the local-s Persiaran Gurney may intimidate with her handful of fancy skyscrapers and luxury homes, but as you stroll past the high-rise developments and five-star hotels, a rewarding alfresco fare of char kway teow, assam laksa and lok lok awaits. Welcoming the groups of families on a quiet evening out, or the young partiers off for a night in the city, the mobile stall providers open till late and cleverly combine the experience of an authentic Malaysian eat-out with the soothing sensation of a beach getaway.
