TOURISM BOOST FOR LANGKAWI
By Kamila Delart
While the number of arrivals tends to be presented by the authorities in a very positive light, those involved in tourism business have another story to tell. Considering that nearly 80 % of the island’s population relies on tourism as a main source of income - not the brightest times the island has seen.
With this last column of my hand I inform you that I have sold my company and that Dev’s Adventure Tours Sdn Bhd will change ownership. The new owners, Miss Claudia Mueller and Mr. Daniel Chiah, will handle the company with their wealth of experience in the travel industry effective from 1 November 2015.
Time flies and we are already 5 months on the way in this year. There are many things happening on the island and construction and development seems to be ongoing everywhere. It was the year of LIMA (Langkawi International Maritime and Aerospace Exhibition) and part of the Asian Summit was held on the island last month that brought a lot of different visitors to the island.
The new year has started with good weather and we had already some nice and sunny days. That was a big relief after the two very rainy weeks we had since the middle of December. The week of Christmas we had days with almost nonstop rain, which is very rare at this time of year as this is supposed to be our dry season. Hopefully the dry season has really started now. At least the rain gave the island a very fresh and nice look and it is a great pleasure watching the green paddy fields at this moment!
We are almost halfway 2014 with the month of Ramadan around the corner and as usual time is flying. The last months have given the island at least enough rain to give it a nicer and greener look and it came most of the time in short and heavy showers so it did not affect our trips in any way.
After an incredibly busy peak season we had a few weeks in May that we could slow down a bit and we used this time for many other things like maintenance of our equipment and clearing up the start of our jungle trail, which was number one on the priority list of our guides. We managed to fill up 16 bags of rubbish within 1 hour and decided to repeat this on a more regular basis.
It is more than 3 months ago that Langkawi had some significant rain. Recently it looked like the rainy season was starting with a short shower in the afternoon on 3 consecutive days, but we are back to the sunny days that made many of the tourists happy while visiting our island. Nature is suffering and at many places it looks like autumn as the trees are dropping their leaves.
We are very happy and proud that TripAdvisor has recognised our company again with a 2013 Certificate of Excellence. This prestigious award places us in the top-performing 10% of all businesses worldwide on TripAdvisor and is given to businesses that consistently earn high ratings from TripAdvisor travellers.
Welcome to the Year of the Snake and wishing all our friends and guests a Happy Chinese New Year!
Nature is an ongoing interesting phenomenon and there is always something going on, even though you would follow the same trail or do the same trip every day. Migratory birds, unexpected sightings of animals in certain areas, nesting birds, and newborn monkey babies are some of them and there is so much more.
With immediate effect (1 December 2012 ) we will allow single travellers to make a booking without putting them on the waiting list pending other confirmed bookings.
This will be valid for our mangrove boat trip, mangrove kayak trip, jungle trek or jungle trek/ evening walk (all daily run) and nature cycling trip (subject to guide availability). This will not be valid for our bird watching and untold stories trips.
Join one of our trips and you will be happy to meet some new friends!
We are very proud to have received again the Certificate of Excellence for the year of 2012 from Tripadvisor with a 5-star rating; thanks to all for your continuous support!
We also just received review number 500 on Tripadvisor and we are extremely proud that so many guests (98.8%) are rating our trips and service as excellent and very good. Thanks to all our guests who are taking the effort to write a review, which is highly appreciated! Some flashes and parts of reviews of the last months:
‘We loved every tour and the guides Jerome and Kieran were not only knowledgable about the flora and fauna of the local area but also passionate about conservation.’
‘We did the mangrove kayak tour with Mandy. She was both inspirational and informative about the local ecology and flora and fauna.’
‘"Selva", the guide was very knowledge and being a environmentalist- brought passion in his informative talks during the trip’
‘My target bird for the day was Orange breasted Trogon, and the guide, Shah, heard one calling and we had fantastic views for about 10 minutes of a calling bird at close range.’
‘Dev's adventure tours use guides who really know their stuff.’
‘Overall, I would recommend Dev's Adventure Tours to anyone. The guides are passionate about wildlife, nature and the environment and know their stuff about the animals and plants on Langkawi, and they are keen to make sure that you get the most possible out of the experience.’
A BIG, BIG THANK YOU TO THE TEAM MEMBERS FOR ALL THE GREAT WORK, FOR THE DEDICATION TO THE COMPANY AND FOR PROMOTING THE NATURAL PART OF LANGKAWI IN AN EXCELLENT WAY; ALL OF YOU ARE TOPPERS!! THANKS!
June 2012 – LAST COLUMN
Time is flying and years are passing like weeks. The world around us is changing and it is hard to get by with all the changes and innovations. All kind of social networks are daily (if not hourly) business for many people and therefore I have decided that this column will be the last.
We could not have wished for a better start of the year 2012; we had the highest numbers of guests within 1 month ever and all guides were doing many extra trips to fulfil all the requests. We even had to refuse some guests with last minute bookings as we were simply fully booked on many days. Although we would be able to get more business by taking more guests we will always stick to the rules and to our own principles and we have our maximum number per trip to secure the service and quality level our guests are used to.
