Maybe this can be example for local Langkawi or anaklangkawi to venture with similar business or gain idea's how much Langkawi can do for us.
This is a story of Juergen Bernd Hermann Zimmerer a 54yrs old German Nationality married to a Malaysian (Sabariah) & already been in Malaysia for 20 years.
*I visited Malaysia back in 1998 as a high school teacher. I was travelling in between countries before stopping over in Langkawi, where i fell in love - with the place & my wife, while working at the Pelangi Beach Resort. I was the recreational manager back then. Married with two kids.
*We started Langkawi Canopy Adventures after watching a documentary on how villagers in Colombia travel daily from one point of a valley to another using just a harness & a rope. Ours is an air-trekking course; in each four-hour session, we take participants ( dress in safety gear) jungle trekking, mountain & rock climbing, gliding 140m towards a fig tree & finally, abseiling 30m above the forest floor.
*Two other things to do when in Langkawi : Kayak around the islands, & visit the mangroves. There is this cave which I call No Name Cave; the only way in is by boat along the shallow channel. Once inside, there are beautiful stalactites in all sorts of shapes, ancient limestone's & whip scorpions! I think it might have been an ancient burial ground.
*I have also written two books Nature Guide Langkawi is a comprehensive guide to Langkawi's flora & fauna, and took me 5 yrs to complete.
