Rising from the Andaman Sea in emerald perfection is Langkawi, an archipelago of 99 island jewels just 30 kilometres off the north western coast of peninsular Malaysia. The Langkawi Archipelago is also a UNESCO-listed Geo-park. The centerpiece of this treasure, is Pulau Langkawi, one of the most popular holiday destinations in Asia.
Langkawi has a lingering legend woven into its history. Ask anyone in Langkawi about the tragic legend of a beautiful young lady named Mahsuri, and you'll hear a tale of love, jealousy and a curse that was placed upon the island by the her for seven generations.
Blessed with stunning beaches, jungle-clad mountains, sensational food, vibrant nightlife, and duty free shopping, Pulau Langkawi has something for everyone. There are beaches to suit every taste, and accommodations for all, from budget-minded travellers and families, to those seeking the finest in resort opulence.
Langkawi is not only geared towards tourism. Many of the islanders are farmers, fishermen and entrepreneurs. Experience the beautiful countryside and the peaceful landscape of paddy fields by renting a car and taking a leisurely drive around the island. Some of Langkawi's most rustic and memorable views are along the road that circles the island. You'll pass small villages with wooden houses framed by palm trees, and children pedalling their old bicycles on errands.
Visitors can simply while away the perfect days in a hammock, or throw themselves into the many activities and sights that Langkawi has to offer. Take the cable car to the astonishing Sky Bridge, or dive into the undersea wonderland of the Pulau Payer Marine Park. Tee-off on a world class golf course, or trek though unspoilt forests and conservation areas with expert eco-guides. Explore uninhabited islands and secluded bays, or strut your stuff on the dance floor with partygoers from all over the world.
Endowed with the finest natural and cultural heritage, and generous to all who visit, it’s not hard to see why Langkawi is known as the Jewel of Kedah.
