Langkawi Malaysia

Historical folklore says that Langkawi was cursed for seven generations. Thankfully that expired in the 1980s, and there is no evidence of any unusual ill fortune in this Malaysian paradise. On the contrary, this archipelago of around 99 islands in the Andaman Sea, 30 km off the mainland coast of north-western Malaysia, is an “Island of Legends”, with a diverse and spectacular range of landscapes and scenery.

Formed by volcanic activity, ocean erosion, and tectonic movement over the last 550 years, the various rock formations and habitats in Langkawi offer a visual feast for visitors. There are mountains, white sand beaches, rich ancient forest, mangroves, caves, tidal flats, clear azure waters and kaleidoscopic reef – and that’s just the nature. The towns and cities are also filled with all manner of curiosities and attractions to seek out and explore.

A popular tourist destination, Langkawi has a broad selection of five-star luxury resorts, backpacker budget options, and everything in between. With so much to do, from snorkelling, scuba diving, and island hopping through to rock climbing, forest trekking, and mangrove tours, there is something to make any trip memorable.
