Langkawi is the main island of a group of 99, which form the archipelago with the same name. Often overlooked, especially by Western tourists, in favor of the better-known Thai islands and Singapore.
Langkawi offers breathtaking scenery with its beautiful beaches, fine sand, crystal-clear water and coastal mangrove swamps.
The inland areas are no less striking; the tropical jungles are thick with luxuriant vegetation and rich in fauna (the island’s name itself indicates an eagle with characteristic reddish feathers), and will impress nature lovers looking for a pristine, largely untouched rainforest.
