Travelbay Malaysia Tours - Rachel Hall - with family

In December 2019, Rachel, Sandy and Kyan travelled to Malaysia on Travelbay's 10 Superb Luxurious Days in Langkawi & Kuala Lumpur - 5 Star Private Tour.

During their holiday Rachel (a social media queen) posted lots on Facebook and Instagram and we all had great fun enjoying the journey with them.

With the permission of Rachel and family and our thanks, we share the below for your enjoyment too.


Kuala Lumpur

@travelbaytravel you knocked this one out of the ball park

See that bridge I was up there! World’s highest twin towers and I hate heights. Then it was up to floor 86 to the observation deck - amazing views but gives me legs of jelly

Kuala Lumpur at night - great for walking as there are these really long elevated walkways that are even air conditioned. Done over 20,000 steps today as we explored the city and the enormous shopping malls.

Langkawi - Skybridge  

Today was one of the most terrifying of my life!!!

I’m scared of heights please remember this as you read on.

We took the worlds longest and steepest single cable cable car to a height of 705m above sea level.

Exited and climbed up wooden stairs with gaps in so I could see the drop no matter where I looked. It was so windy I could hardly take photos as the wind was trying to whip my phone from my hands. My legs were jelly and my heart going so fast my Apple Watch thought I was doing a work out.

Next we descend to 650m to go walk the sky bridge - to get there I had to cross a wooden platform, more wooden stairs, a metal platform (imagine scaffolding) and my worst nightmare a spiral staircase!!  All this atop of the windy mountain with drop offs and nothing below me.

Finally we get to terra firma through a lovely rainforest walk before we came out at the worlds longest curved suspension bridge which sits 250m above the rainforest canopy.

Thankfully we could get a funicular back to the cable car station before we tackled the descent so I didn’t have reverse traverse the spiral stairs etc. I’ve never been so happy to be back on the ground.

Now if you like heights this will be right up your street, the construction of the cable car and bridge is amazing - sadly I was too scared to appreciate it.

Another beautiful evening in Langkawi. Sunset followed by a beautiful sliver of a new moon which I couldn’t capture on my iPhone.

Afternoon nap followed by a beach walk and light dinner of lamb curry and salad. I could get used to this.

Walking around this impressive and large resort, enjoying the sights and the rhythm of my feet. This resort is so large it takes me 15 minutes to walk from one side to the other.
