Located approximately 30km off the western coast of Malaysia and very close to the Thai border, this stunning island is blessed with some of the country's best beaches and sandy bays and is perfect as a holiday destination in its own right or as part of a twin or multi-centre.  It combines perfectly with Kuala Lumpur for a city and beach break or for something a little more adventurous, you can add Borneo into the mix. 

 

Benefiting from a year-round temperate climate, crystal waters and wonderful scenery inland, this Malaysian island also has many Thai influences when it comes to culture and cuisine.

 

Popular with locals escaping from city life in Kuala Lumpur, visitors from other southeast Asian countries come to experience the relaxed pace of life. Ultimately, Langkawi is seen as an idyllic hideaway, owing to its stunning location within the Andaman Sea and its abundance of beautiful beaches and secluded sandy bays. Whether you want to spend hours sun worshipping on the beach, partaking in one of the many non-motorised watersports or perhaps learning how to scuba dive, most of your time will be spent close to the gorgeous ocean.  

 

Langkawi really is suited to those who want to get away from their chaotic lifestyle, so take along a good book and look forward to some serious relaxation.

Places to go and things to do in Langkawi

Island Hopping

Island Hopping

This is one of the most popular things to do in Langkawi. Not surprising as there are 104 islands in the archipelago, most of which are inhabited; Langkawi being the biggest. With caves, mangroves and endless rainforest canopy, the wildlife is amazing and the scenery simply stunning. Excursions range from half to a full day, but the best ones also include a visit to the Bat Cave, known as Gua Kelawar. Accessed by a wooden footbridge that twists through the mangrove swamps, this cave is home to a large population of Malaysian Fruit Bats.

Langkawi Cable Car and Sky Bridge

For an exhilarating experience take the Sky Cab, Langkawi’s famous cable car, up to the top of Machincang Mountain.  With panoramic views of the island and the opportunity to observe lots of unique flora and fauna along the way and also at the middle and top station, you are in for a real treat.  From the top of the mountain you will also be able to access the Sky Bridge, the longest free span and curved bridge in the world.  Probably not for the faint hearted as it hangs about 100m above the ground, this bridge affords the ultimate views over the virgin rainforest below, so if you can bring yourself to stroll across it, you will be deeply rewarded.

Kayaking in the Mangrove Forest

For an unforgettable and perhaps more active trip, try kayaking through the mangrove forest; a great way to see the natural flora and fauna right before your eyes.  Twisting and turning through the gorgeous swamps, ideally with a guide (!), you will you be awed by the stunning surroundings, the uniqueness of the mangroves and of course the beauty of the wildlife, namely kingfishers, sea eagles and herons.  

Langkawi Arts in 3D Paradise

Something completely different and quite unique, a visit to the Langkawi Art in Paradise 3D Museum, (the second largest of its kind in the world) is a great place to visit to take a break from the sun, sea and sand.  Within the 3-storey building there are many exhibition spaces and interactive zones which showcase over 200 amazing hand-painted artworks presented in three-dimensional forms and it is great fun interacting, photographing and blending into the artwork here.  One of the key highlights is the amazing panoramic painting of the Kuala Lumpur skyline which includes the famous Petronas Towers.
