An archipelago of 99 islands in Malaysia, which expands to 104 at low tide, Langkawi has been called Bali as it was thirty years ago. With the only UNESCO World Heritage Geopark in Southeast Asia, it is home to incredible wildlife, so provides plenty of adventure for nature lovers as well as beautiful beaches.

Lay of the Land

Known as the “Jewel of Kedah, ” this archipelago dots the Andaman Sea just off the northwestern coast of Malaysia. Only four of the 99 islands are inhabited, of which Palau Langkawi is by far the largest at about 25 km long, and accounts for more than half of the total landmass of all the islands. While the main island is mostly mountainous, the coastline flattens out into fine white sand beaches with a few limestone cliffs forming a striking juxtaposition.

Once thought to be cursed, Langkawi is now one of the hottest tourist destinations, as people flock from around the globe to admire its natural beauty and diverse ecological attractions. The temperature is relatively stable year round, usually between 75-90 degrees Fahrenheit, but the best time to visit is the dry season, which runs from December to February. The wet season lasts most of the year, from March to November. From Kuala Lumpur, it’s a 45-minute flight to Langkawi.
