The Langkawi archipelago is made up of a cluster of 99 islands, sprinkled just off the shores of the Northern Kedah State in Peninsular Malaysia. During low tide, the number of islands expands to 104. The main island known as Pulau Langkawi is a very popular tourist resort.
The main attractions on the island are the long stretches of white
sandy beaches. The most frequented and condensed beaches are in the
southwestern part of the island. The clear emerald waters around the
islands provide numerous opportunities for a host of water sports and
recreational activities. The enchanting marine lives beneath the waters
of Langkawi also beckon diving enthusiasts.
How to Reach Langkawi
You can either board a ferry or fly straight to Langkawi. If you plan
to take the ferry, you will have to first get to either Kuala Kedah or
Kuala Perlis, from where the ferries depart. Alternatively, you can take
the direct air service from Kuala Lumpur to Langkawi.
