Langkawi, “the jewel of Kadah”, is made up of 99 islands in the Andaman Sea off the northwest coast of Malaysia, with the main island, Pulau Langkawi, being only one of two that are inhabited. This tropical paradise has clear turquoise waters that encourage scuba diving, sailing, yachting, and other water sports, gorgeous white sand beaches, secluded coves, forests, mountains, paddy fields, and spectacular marine life. The rain forest has lush flora and fauna and interesting wildlife.
The magical beauty creates a perfect getaway on the most beautiful islands in Southeast Asia. Many of the hotels are waterfront or close to the beach, and quite a few are within just kilometers of the airport. Although there are luxurious accommodations, you will also find a great many budget to mid-range hotels. The restaurants serve delicious seafood such as giant tiger prawns, local favorite selections, and western fare.
