If you happen to rent a bicycle or a scooter to explore the island on your own, I really suggest you to take a bit of time to try a random small side road and get lost in the villages and the rice fieds.
Some villagers may look at you wondering what you are doing here, but if you nicely ask to take a few pictures around their rice paddies, they will be happy to please you. Langkawi’s countryside is often swampy, which explains why the rice grows so well.
You will be enchanted by all this greenery, peaceful countryside atmosphere and wild mountains in the background. I believe these countryside make nice opportunities for discovery and photography, and it’s too bad they are often overlooked by most visitors.
