Get away from it all in Langkawi!

If you want a relaxing holiday somewhere pretty quiet where you can get away from everything this is the place to go! We stayed at the Tanjung Sanctuary - a fantastic hotel,in acres of forest with private beaches and monkeys,giant squirrels, giant lizards roaming free (and in the case of the monkeys trying to get into your room if youre not careful!)
The island is still building up its tourism but hopefully will not develop too much and will stay relatively unspoilt.
On a clear day get up the cable car and get fantastic views.
We hired a little motorbike and in the heat this was great and we felt like we were seeing more than if we'd been in a car - the roads are so quiet its really safe and local children were always waving and shouting hello!
The weather was great, the people were friendly and we didnt have one bad meal the whole time we were there.
If you can get to a local market its worth a look,even if you dont buy more than food & drink. We found out from one of the hotel staff that the market goes to different towns each day and checked where it was the day we wanted to go, so just ask! Everyone is happy to help and give you any info you need.
We're so tempted to go back next year as we came home totally refreshed.
