Known for its excellent diving, Langkawi is a juggle-covered and beach-rimmed archipelago of 104 islands, 30 kilometeres off the northwest Malaysian mainland. Near the Thai border and tucked away from the monsoon season by the mountains of the mainland, Langkawi's natural beauty was recognised by UNESCO in 2007, declaring it a Geopark.
A thriving tourism industry was born with the main island's duty-free status, granted in 1987. Island-hopping, cave and mangrove tours and just plain lazing on the beach, are all popular across this hideaway. Here's a quick guide to other top things to see and do:
- Visit Oriental Village – and cable car to the top of the mountain and walk the 700-meter high Sky Bridge for a view of Thailand.
- Swim at Tanjung Rhu beach – at the northernmost tip of the island, with its ancient limestone caves, mangroves and limestone crags.
- Reef dive at Pulau Payar Marine Park – a beautiful marine reserve 19 nautical miles off Langkawi.
- Climb the Seven Wells Waterfalls – and bathe where legend has it the fairies do; but be ready for the 300-plus steps to get there.
