Well worth it
What we say:
A not-to-be missed Langkawi tour is Island Hopping. The standard 'group' trip is dirt-cheap and a super value at the across the board price of 25 ringgit.
Most agents can arrange these trips, but some may add commission, so feel free to shop around. This 3-4 hour boat trip includes hotel pick-up and a visit to Pulau Dayang Bunting, Pulau Singha and Pulau Beras Basah; highlights of the tour are gorgeous limestone formations, a visit to the Lake of the Pregnant Maiden and Eagle Watching (as opposed to Eagle Feeding, which is now considered not good for the balance of nature).
There’s no food and drink included in the group ‘budget’ trips other than the quickie packaged snacks and canned drinks for sale on the Bunting and Basah island stops. That includes bottled water, so be sure and bring your own.
Private trips can also be arranged at higher rates and varying itineraries.
