Langkawi

 

EXPLORING LANGKAWI

Langkawi is Malaysia's most revered beach destination - an inspiring collection of untouched islands off the country's west coast. Pulau Langkawi is largest of a handful of inhabited islands in the archipelago and draws sailors, water sports enthusiasts and sun worshippers from around the globe. Endless stretches of powdery white sand mean shoes are definitely optional on a vacation in Langkawi. A backdrop of striking limestone hills and dramatic rocky outcrops adds to the natural splendour, while refined accommodation, fine food and a well developed tourism infrastructure make island life comfortable, convenient and re-assuringly calm.
