The 99 islands of Langkawi are one of Malaysia’s top tourist destinations. Fine resorts enhance their UNESCO-listed natural beauty, and despite their popular beaches, it is still easy to get away from the masses while visiting. The Langkawi Cable Car is one of the main attractions. Go up from the Oriental Village to the 700-metre Gunung Machinchang where the spectacular Skybridge offers unforgettable views of the Andaman Sea. Boat trips and day cruises to neighbouring islands are an excellent way to experience the archipelago. If you love diving, snorkelling and scuba diving are best done at the Pulau Payar Marine Park, located just one hour southeast by boat.
Where to Stay
Most Langkawi hotels are found on the main island Pulau Langkawi. Many 5-star resorts are located along the coast, while budget chains are based predominantly in the capital city of Kuah. Whether you travel on a shoestring or want to splurge on the holiday of a lifetime, Langkawi has the right accommodation for you.
When to Travel
Langkawi’s climate is tropical. The islands can be visited year-round, but be aware that heavy rains may occur in August and September. The dry season is from December until February. Temperatures are fairly consistent throughout the year and range from 30 to 35 degrees Celsius during the day.
