It is not nice to see wild animals in captivity, but if this is what it takes to help the Orang Utan population, so be it and apparently they really try... We did enjoy watching the antics of the baby Orang Utans! Part of the ticket included a little Zoo with local animals, again it all depends if you like this kind of thing. We were lucky enough though to see an angry spitting Cobra and film it. You can see it here
We stopped just before Butterworth to take some shots of the Penang sky line and then retired to a hotel in the middle of the town (omg) Nothing there at all, lol. At Alor Star Airport we had to hand the car in the following day and as a summary we can only say: This 10 day trip through Malaysia was well worth all the driving. We saw so much of the mainland and whether it was the Cameron Highlands with it`s lush green, Fraser`s Hill so peaceful and quiet, the Genting with it`s crowds, or the whole of the East coast, with miles of untouched beaches. It was just great and we can definitely recommend it. (All photos here)
With our next Visa Run approaching fast, one of our next posts should be about Koh Lipe, a Thai Island just a couple of hours away from Langkawi.
