Some Rights Reserved Langkawi is an archipelago of 99 islands off the North-Western coast of Peninsular Malaysia. Unique rock formations, ancient rainforests, and spectacular caves have influenced Langkawi's fantastic legends of gigantic birds, warriors, and fairy princesses. A natural paradise unmatched in splendour, it is no wonder it was long known as "Malaysia's best kept secret." White sandy beaches and clear emerald waters offer visitors sun-filled days of rest and relaxation, and there are countless ways to add adventure to your stay. Catch a boat to Palau Payar Marine Park, feed wild eagles, or explore the world-renowned Cave of Bats. Start your days with the famous Malay breakfast, freshly prepared nasi lemak ?? steamed rice in coconut milk, wrapped in banana leaf ?? and you will be well on your way to enjoying this tropical paradise.
