Here we have selected a few of the sights and experiences that you really should see on a visit to Langkawi.
Relax on the beach
There really is no better place to relax on the beach than Langkawi. With a selection of white sand beaches to choose from you are sure to find something to suit your needs.
Kilim Karst Geoforest Park
Set on the northeast coast of Langkawi are the extensive mangrove forests and stunning limestone formations that form the Kilim Karst Geoforest Park. This is a great place to spot bats and eagles in their natural environments.
The highlight of this family-friendly amusement park is SkyCab, a cable car that whisks visitors to the top of Gunung Machinchang. Here the brave can walk along the 100m-high SkyBridge to admire the dramatic views across the jungle canopy.
