tanjung rhu beach panorama

today me and my wife suddenly decided to go to northern parts of langkawi. but time was kinda late so we just went to bird paradise and tanjung rhu beach (pantai tanjung rhu).

it was one of the most beautiful beaches i've ever seen. all white sand together with beautiful trees very few buildings, a river's path, small islands and very few people. it was nothing like cenang beach (lots of water sports agents, lots of buildings at the edge of trees, but it's beautiful anyway).

water is not deep, you can actually walk 100 meters into the sea. but it's totally muddy because it's the end point of a river (i don't know the name yet). i took this tanjung rhu panorama over one of the dunes surfaced close to the small islands. we walked there all the way. sometimes in the water and mud, sometimes over small dunes. through the sunset water has started to rise and slowly close the way we came so we had to got back before the full sunset. but we watched a wonderful view in cool breeze totally alone right in the middle of the sea.

while taking this 360° panorama, i also took a photo of my wife which i've been thinkin' to do for almost a year and never find time or place to do so. or i was just lazy. so here it is, my first clone panorama photo.

there are some shops and big resorts there. two of them are tanjung rhu resort and four seasons resort. as far as i've seen tanjung rhu resort had a wonderful pool. we are thinkin' of spending a weekend there. next time we will check out the details about shops and resorts there.

a view from chogm villa

i've told about chogm villa (where i live) before. it's really suitable for long term stay. here is a view from my balcony, you can enjoy this every evening:

my new japanese car

i've changed my car yesterday. my plumber decided to rent his car; a 2001 nissan cefiro 3.0 . very nice and clean car, have cruise control, 3.0 v engine etc. i was happy with the perodua kembara but this one is cheaper. kembara was rm1200 / month (~$342) and this car is rm1000 (~$285). there is a huge quality difference. this new one has a real air-con, abs, cruise control (yes, i said this before), 3.0 v6 engine, two airbags, a huge baggage compartment etc. it's my plumber's family car so it's really clean compared to my rent-a-car perodua. (btw it has a sound system better than my 5.1, am i lucky or what).

okay, kembara was a nice small suv with no comfort maybe more suitable for an island like this. it was like a station wagon in the shape of a jeep with 4wd. but most of the roads here are very clean and smooth, so you don't always need jeep, actually you hardly need a jeep when you are living here.

i will put its photos here when i have time to shoot them. here is a photo from www.thaicar.com:
