Langkawi - Pantai Cenang/Rice field

Found this on Pantai Cenang, in front of a hippy breakfast bar
Can you spot "Bonjour?"

Langkawi is an island situated on the North western part of peninsula Malaysia in the state of Kedah-- The rice bowl of Malaysia. We go to Langkawi quite a lot since we came back to Malaysia due to hubby's work. So you will see quite a bit of Langkawi from this blog. 

So in this post I will show you more of the rice field - kampung scene.. 

An atap hut right in the middle of the rice field
Pantai Cenang - Langkawi's main tourist street. This is where you find restaurants of different cuisine from the usual local street food like Ikan bakar (grill fish), Japanese, Italian to Mexico. There are many choices to suit different taste buds as well as budgets.

The beach in Pantai Cenang is the most happening beach. Beach itself is not very clean but is still better then those over crowded, over commercialised beaches in Pattaya or Bali. There are jet skies, parasailing, speed boats, ATVs.. well, you get what I mean but still have plainty of space to build sand castles. What I want to say is it is just not like The Maldives, I know I am spoilt.. I long for those clean white sands with crystal clear water and only the sound of waves but not speed boats or jet skies.

The different is you get to see local families coming for an evening walk, some Arabic tourist have a picnic on the beach, some blonds having icy cold beer while getting tan in their bikinis. Is a place to do people watching.

At the start of the Pantai Cenang, there is this Rice Garden Museum. We didn't go in the museum.. It was a very hot day.. just took like a few hundreds  photos.

We will be going to Langkawi again soon.. I will show you more pictures of the beach next..
