BFF and I at Pulau Payar Marine Park

We wake up early morning around 7am, had our breakfast that provided by hotel and getting ready for our transport to pick up us to Jetty Point at Kuah Town. We are going to Pulau Payar, one of the most beautiful and exotic marine park in Malaysia. FYI, this island still remains unspoiled until today due to its status as a marine park and is South East Asia’s 1 stop snorkeling, diving and water activity floating platform.

Em mm.. I love beaches..
that explained why my skin tanned all the time ;)

my favorite Kopi O

Our booking day trips included pickup from hotel, lunch on the island and use of snorkeling equipment. Total time for this trip is from 8am to 5pm. While waiting for the transportation, we walked around our hotel for some photo takings.

Bella Vista Langkawi Hotel
told you liao...really look like castle in the Disneyland

Once we had arrived at Jetty Point, we were escorted to the Jetty Point to where we were ushered into a power boat with both indoor and outdoor seating.

from here you can go to Satun Thailand too

speed boat operated by Langkawi Coral from
Kuah Jetty in Langkawi Island

spacious boat

30 minutes after the speed boat left the jetty, crew in charge briefing on the day itinerary and some safety precaution. He also told us, last 2 weeks one of their "shark caller " was bitten by a shark during feeding show and lost his middle finger.

look at the wounded fingers, pity him right?

We also climbed up to the top deck for some fresh air and feel the wind in our hair while enjoying the beautiful scenery.

After 1 hour journey I noticed the boat starting to slow down and finally we arrived at Pulau Payar. Pulau Payar is located 13 km south of Langkawi and the water around is perfect for swimming and scuba diving.

Welcome to Pulau Payar Marine Park, protected natural area

we were transferred to the jetty by small boat.

the water is amazingly clear

the waters are crystal clear
can you spotted a shark?

awww.. so sweet

envy look ;P

enjoying the panoramic scene

Bikini girls ;P

the fish are very friendly and you can hand-feed them

our simple packed lunch

I always get mozzie bite...
yeah I know mosquitoes love me.

Met newly married friend from Germany ;)
both are teacher

Finally baby shark feeding show!!

At 1pm they feed the sharks and as you can see from he pics it is an amazing experience. If you, scare, you can stand on the jetty platform to get an overview of the sharks or you may stand in the water/beach.
I choose to stand in the water ;P

Sharp 1pm, you could see the first baby shark circling in the middle of the crowd followed by four, five, six and more.....

Don't freak, just a baby shark

The "shark caller" would start getting the baby sharks towards the beach by breaking little fishes and let some of the blood into the water. Only well trained "shark caller" can do it.

Baby shark feeding will be a memorable experience for me. Here I would like to share with you all the video of shark feeding in Payar Island.

Lynn and Christy with "shark caller"

After lunch, Lynn and Christy pay extra to go out snorkeling at somewhere far from the beach while I'm choose to sunbathing and relax.

found a good spot ;)

Never realize when I falls asleep and Lynn took this photos without my knowing. Damn embarrassing and I just couldn't stop laughing whenever i looked back at this photos.

Lynn is a bad girl ;P

At 5 pm, time to head back to Langkawi Island. We eat and sleep all the way back to Kuah Jetty.

goodbye ~~
Definitely will keep this memories of it into my heart

When we arrived at our hotel, we continue with swimming activity. I just love Bella Vista Langkawi swimming pool with good sea view.
