One of the most unique attractions in Langkawi Island is the Taman Buaya Langkawi or the Langkawi Crocodile Farm where you will be able to walk with crocodiles, literally. Located about 32km towards the north of Kuah, it is located in Datai Bay, one of the main areas of the island. Here is where you will be able to see more than 1,000 crocodiles and alligators that include some rare species.
Registered under the CITES (Convention on International Trade and Endangered Species) organisation, it houses the most crocodile and alligator species in the world where you will be able to see and learn about the many types of crocodiles in the world. There are shows and performances from the tamed crocodiles while there are also some which are dangerous. One of the highlights here include the ‘Man vs Crocodile’ wrestling match where you will be able to see for yourself how the man struggles against the giant lizard, or vice versa.
You can visit The Breeding Pond where baby crocodiles are breed and grown, the Bridge-Over-Pond is where you can see the gigantic crocodiles while The Feeding Pond is where you can see how they feast. The Show Pond is where the wrestling match is demonstrated. The centre opens from 9 am to 6 pm daily where adults need to pay RM8 while children below 12 pay RM6 for entry.
