Just off the west coast of Malaysia is a cluster of 99 islands which make up Langkawi - the Jewel of Kedah, comprising vistas of undulating mountains, expansive paddy fields, sleepy rustic hamlets, stunning enclaves of untouched rainforest and home to one of one of National Geographic’s top ten beaches in the entire world.
While you can indulge in more lively parts, it’s true allure is the multitude of uninhabited islands and the vast green interiors where the resorts are tucked discreetly away, carefully designed to harmonise with natural surroundings without imposing on the eye or the eco system.
Live the Dream...
Take a memorable cable car journey above the green canopies to Mat Cincang Peak. Arcing over the rainforest and the plunging Seven Wells Waterfall, once at the top gaze out at a panoramic view of Pulau Langkawi’s dense verdant foliage and white sanded islets scattered across the glittering Andaman Sea. Walk along the Langkawi Sky Bridge, a curved footway suspended high above the trees and, on a clear day see as far as the Malay Peninsula and the tip of Thailand.
Explore the lagoons of the Sungai Kilim Nature Park and spot rare birdlife, while The Pulau Payar Marine Park, is a fantastic site to swim and snorkel the coral reefs.
As for that top ten beach, Datai Bay is a true paradise where the rainforest spreads uninterrupted down the hillsides to the edge of a crescent of deserted pure white sand and quiet aquamarine waters.
