Known as the ‘jewel of Kedah’, Langkawi is an archipelago of 99 tropical islands off the northwest coast of Malaysia resting in the sparkling blue waters of the Andaman Sea. A glorious mix of white-sandy beaches and dense rainforests teeming with wildlife make Langkawi one of Malaysia’s most popular island getaways.
Rainforest clad interiors rich with wildlife, coupled with long stretches of white sandy beaches and the azure waters of the Andaman Sea, Langkawi is an island destination that offers something for everyone. Pulau Langkawi is the archipelago’s largest and most popular island. Alongside the expected beach activities of snorkelling, diving and water sports, the island boasts 50 million year old limestone caves you can explore and ancient rainforests home to silver leaf langurs and cheeky macaques.
One of the highlights of any trip to Langkawi is scaling the heights of Mount Mat Chinchang aboard the Langkawi Cable Car. Take in spectacular views of the island’s waterfalls, turquoise waters and dense forests as you travel 2.2 kilometres to the top. Travellers looking for a more relaxed atmosphere will love Pantai Cenang - Langkawi’s most popular beach destination. Soft white sands, swaying coconut trees and crystalline turquoise waters make it the picture postcard of a paradise island.
