Langkawi

Langkawi conjures images of Malaysia at its best: sunny, fun, safe, exciting and even thrilling. Located about 15 miles in the Andaman Sea off Kuala Perlis, it is a collection of 99 islands that can be reached from Satun, Thailand or Georgetown, Penang. The main island is 193 square miles and was established around the 1st Century A.D. There are sleepy villages, water buffalo, and lovely beaches on these islands, which are noted for the eagles above and the marble underneath. Thailand, the British Empire and the Imperial Japanese Army all took an interest in this smattering of nature-rich islands. As Malaysia's top tourist destination, Langkawi is not limited in its list of activities on offer. These include sunbathing, beachcombing, sailing, island hopping, nature and animal photography, trekking, and searching for dolphins, sea otters and even land-walking fishes. Don't miss the Seven Wells of the Telaga Tujuh Waterfalls, where you can engage on a jungle trekking course. If you are in town during the Langkawi Biennial (International Festival of the Arts), discover local art by Langkawi's best artists and artisans.

EXPERIENCES

Beaches

In Malay, Langkawi means, “The Land of All One’s Wishes.” Visitors may see why upon visiting the island's many pristine and white sandy beaches. Pantai Kok, to the west, is isolated and leads to a cablecar ride to the top of Mat Cincang Mountain.

Kayaking

At Skeleton Beach, board kayaks for a journey up the Kubang Badak River. Kayak along a mangrove forest, where you will have a chance to see indigenous wildlife. Cruise alongside the coast until you arrive at a fishing station upriver. Disembark and take another short drive to the starting point of a short hike through the rainforest. Hike just 1200 feet to a secluded stream where you can take a dip and enjoy a picnic lunch alongside the water.

Mangrove Forests

Explore the limestone cliffs and mangrove forests of Langkawi, which act as a nursery for shrimp and fish. Its inhabitants include eagles, dolphins, otters and land-walking fishes.

Sunken Islands

As a bonus, an extra five islands beyond the main 99 are revealed during low tide. Hire a private boat and travel to one of the islands, where you can enjoy a picnic on this ephemeral island.

Telaga Tujuh Waterfalls

Telaga Tujuh Waterfalls, also known as “The Seven Wells,” are believed in legend to have been the playground of mythical fairies. Bathe in the pools or go on a jungle trekking course that runs 2,500 meters up two separate mountains.

Wildlife Trek

Photography enthusiasts will enjoy trekking on an expedition aimed at capturing Langkawi’s immense natural beauty and wonders of the animal kingdom. There are long-tail macaques, dusky leaf monkeys, flying lemurs and owls. Bird lovers can look forward to spotting the kingfisher, herons and the white-bellied sea eagle.

Yacht Cruise

Cruise on a private yacht and spot eagles overhead, take photos of the scenic shoreline and to feed sting rays. Langun Island and Pirate Lagoon offer fishing, a saltwater Jacuzzi, a tunnel cave and even dolphin spotting.
