The Ultimate Guide Before You Plan for your Next Trip

Langkawi in a beautiful archipelago of 99 small islands located south of Thailand. The islands are a part of Malaysia's Kedah state, but are adjacent to the border of Thailand. Malaysia’s best-known holiday destination, Langkawi is a tropical land having pristine beaches, swaying coconut palm trees and unmatched resorts in the world. Langkawi's has numerous spectacular sandy beaches, which dots the coastline of the main island. The most popular beach is Pantai Cenang, while many of the island's resort hotels also enjoy separate stretches of their own beach. Pantai Kok is another local favourite and is dramatically set amidst a fold of Limestone Mountains.

Attractions in Langkawi

Langkawi is now increasingly gearing itself towards families, with the resort hotels often offering dedicated children's facilities and eating and drinking outlets that are very much family-friendly. The beaches are an obvious attraction as is the Underwater World (Pantai Cenang), one of the largest aquariums in Asia. Langkawi is not Asia's hardest partying destination, though unlike in some parts of the country alcohol is still widely available. The heart of the action is in the main town of Kuah, which has the best venues. Most of the resort hotels have bars of their own, with a sundowner on the beach the most important drink of the day for most holidaymakers.
