From amazon forest’s smallest monkey Marmoset to South Africa’s Rockhopper penguins to Wood Duck found in northern America, we got them all here in Langkawi Underwater World. That’s some of the best offerings it has to date the last time I visited (in Feb 2009).
Certainly worth the ticket price I would say. You can even get 2 ringgits (RM) off the usual 28 ringgit (RM) if you purchase the ticket at Kuah Jetty terminal. Try to search for counters selling tour packages.
Move your finger around and the penguin would chase over it!
Tada~ Here’s a 360 degrees view panorama created from the end of the Langkawi Panorama Bridge (sky bridge). It’s taken using my faithful Canon 400D. I was using Sigma 18-200 with polarizer filter on in the hope of getting more details on the sky over the bright day.
Technically, it’s quite straightforward in composing this panorama. Basically I’ll just overlap my snapshot 50% or more to the previous photo taken and repeat the cycle twice/thrice just to be safe from human movement/ blurring/ exposure problem/ any other potential problem. Of course, I mounted my camera on a tripod.
What do I use to produce the panorama? I bet you are excited to know! The panorama above is created using Pano2VR, PTGui and Adobe Photoshop. These combo work just like wonder. PTGui is one of the best stitching program I ever found. :)
It was a fun experience walking on the panorama bridge the last time I went to Langkawi for a short 2 days holiday trip. Few years back when I went there, the bridge wasn’t there yet. Most of the time, I was a little scared of staying on the bridge platform when strong wind started to blow. The bridge did sway! A little scary but a good experience for me.
It’s simply magnificent on what human can do. Building a bridge suspended on a crane at over 700m from sea level on top of a mountain. Engineering marvel!
