The name Mahsuri is synonymous with Langkawi & as a child, we were taught in school about the legend of Mahsuri. Thus, it is only natural for a history lover like myself to see & study even more. As of course, I had jumped at...More

With the entrance fees of RM12 per person, this is something super not value for money. You can finish the entire tour by maybe 15 minutes? Nothing to see,not informative, maintenance everywhere,and all these cost you RM12.

Ticket is pricey for nothing much to view. Just empty old houses with mannequin, pictures print on the board, selling gifts just like another place.

Ticket is RM12 for local. Not bad. Learn a lot of Mahsuri past. Interesting. I did henna there with my mom as well. Very cheap and beautiful! But the location is very far away from cites. Quite hard to get Uber during weekdays.

The place is about the princess' tomb. Apart from it, there is a rather tired headman's house and a small museum. The museum had air conditioning which was not turned on. Our visit was around noon time, so the heat and humidity were rather uncomfortable....More
