Nature Walks at The Andaman, Langkawi

A Macaque Monkey

A nature walk at The Andaman, is a great way to see the lush green rain forest come alive with activity from tropical birds, animals and reptiles, guided by a natue expert from the hotel.

The morning walk is a favourite to see the Great Hornbill and the Macaque and Dusky Leaf monkeys eating their breakfast, whilst the evening walk is an opportunity to see the rare flying lemurs and flying squirrels and foxes.

Or perhaps a family of wild boars might cross your path or you can spot a few of the three hundred types of butterfly in the area. Flying snakes are also found in Langkawi and were recently the focus of a National Geographic film, although are not easily spotted. Oh and also further up the bay, there is a Tarantula family living in a tree.

The forest and surrounding area near The Andaman hotel is beautiful and a trip here isn’t complete without some nature watching – you can’t miss it.

Datai Bay, Langkawi

Datai Bay, Langkawi

If you’re dreaming of escape to a natural beach paradise, then Datai Bay in Langkawi is the destination for you.

A nearly perfect semi-circle, the bay offers clear blue water, a coral reef, a beautiful sandy beach and an incredibly dense 10,000 year old tropical forest which reaches right to the sand.

The bay is home to two fabulous hotels The Andaman and The Datai and also many types of rare wildlife, such as the Colugo also known as a flying lemur and colourful birds such as the Great Hornbill.

This really is a secret and tranquil place, surrounded by forest covered hills that climb steeply behind the bay – creating the perfect beach hideaway.

Plus this is all just a one hour flight from Singapore. Time to kick back and relax…
