Pulau Langkawi


This is one of the newest additions in Langkawi. An amazing 3-Dimensional art museum known as Art in Paradise located in Oriental Village (location of cable car ride) was opened to public on 31st January 2015. It was officially inaugurated on 7th February 2015 by the former Prime Minister of Malaysia Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamad. 
So what can you expect here? Well, amazing new era of art where part of the artwork is coming out in the space giving it a lifelike real look! There are over 100 such artwork created by 23 Korean artists and several talented local artists. 
You can see dragon coming out of the picture frame, or a gentleman's hand projecting out of his portrait to shake hands with you and many more. But one of my favorites here is the girl on a swing with her body in the space... awesome work!

This is the second largest 3D art museum in the world and certainly the largest in the whole of Malaysia. It spans across 3 floors in a building and covers a total floor area of about 2,000 square meters. So another feather in the cap for Oriental Village and of course Langkawi. So instead of just a cable ride, shopping in quaint stores, food and elephant rides, you can also see this 3D museum while visiting Oriental Village.

If you have never experienced an amphibious vehicle tour before, Langkawi is a good place it give it a try. 

The vehicle is part bus and part boat with a hull-shaped chassis equipped with a propeller and rudder in addition to regular wheels for travelling on land.

The name Duck originated from the DUKW amphibious vehicle which was designed for military use.

Many have been adapted for tourism purposes in places like London, Singapore, Melaka and now Langkawi.
The duration of the tour is 45 minutes, about half on land and half on the sea.

Although the vehicle is designed for travelling on both and water, in truth it does not look very comfortable on either. On land it is a long and wide vehicle that has to be manoeuvred very slowly on Langkawi's narrow roads while on sea it looks ungainly and is not the fastest of vessels.

But this doesn't really matter when you are on holiday and not in a hurry. The slow ride gives passengers a chance to enjoy the lovely scenery from an elevated seating position.

Where Does it Go From and To?

The tour starts and ends at the main entrance of Oriental Village (close to the Cable Car Station).

The ride travels very slowly on the road from Oriental Village to a slipway close to the Danna Hotel, a distance of around 2km. Near the slipway, which is located on Pantai Kok, is where the Summer House scenes in 1999 version of 'Anna and the King' were filmed.

There the Duck splashes into the sea and heads out beyond a man-made island before turning into the marina at Telaga Harbour Park.

(Life jackets are provided and must be worn while the vehicle is on the sea. While on the water the Captain allows you to go onto the open air deck at the rear to take photos and get a better view. The exhaust fumes of the engine are rather strong at the rear.)

The boat makes a circuit of the marina before heading back out of the harbour and returning to the slipway.

As the Duck drives back onto land, the driver spends 5 minutes or so hosing down the underside of the vehicle to remove corrosive salty sea water from all the metal parts.

The Duck then drives back to the start point at Oriental Village.
