Eagle Square Kuah Langkawi Kedah Malaysia
Eagle Square or Datarang Lang is Langkawi’s most prominent landmark for visitors arriving via sea. Situated near Kuah Jetty, the main attraction of the Square is the magnificiant statue of the reddish-brown eagle majestically poised for flight.

The square features many scenic ponds, restaurants, covered terraces, bridges and barrel vaults made bricks.
Langkawi International Airport Langkawi
A tiny airport! You get off the plane and walk to the terminal! Great place to book your tours and for some last minute duty free shopping! The airport houses only a couple of stores and a couple of places to eat -not a great place to spend hours at.
Langkawi sky bridge
Langkawi sky bridge in Malaysia is one of the most scenic places in the continent. Not only is it aesthetically wonderful, but it has its name among the world’s strangest cable stayed suspension bridges. The entire bridge, in its elementary form had to be lifted to the top of the mountain and was later assembled to its current position. The magnanimous structure that it is, its view is bound to mesmerize. The bridge hangs at about 100 meter above ground. Acrophobic people, beware!!

Durian Perangin Waterfall Langkawi Kedah Malaysia
This 14 tier waterfall is truly a sight to behold and is accessible after a short trek to through the rain forest. It is a quiet place with freshness in its being. The paths we took for the short trek were surrounded by Rambutan fruit trees. Also on your way you’ll find many monkeys who are kind of mischievous so it’s better to take care of your belongings while you trek up.
The Westin Langkawi Resort & Spa Jalan Dato Syed Omar Kuah Langkawi Kedah Malaysia
Off the coast of Malaysia, Langkawi Island was the perfect place to relax and do nothing for a few days. For my two nights on the island, I couldn’t decide between two equally beautiful Starwood properties on the island, the Westin and the Sheraton. So, what to do when you can’t decide? Try them both, of course! I spent my first night at the Westin Langkawi and the second at the Sheraton Resort Langkawi. When I arrived at the Westin, the dreamy views from the lobby alone were enough to make you want to sit down with a cocktail and never explore any further. In the evening I enjoyed an excellent sunset from the hotel’s beach followed by a great meal in town. It was an extremely relaxing couple of days, though I feel a little bad that I didn’t get out to see much of the island. Oh well, sometimes you need a break…even from being a tourist.

After struggling for almost 5 hours we arrived at Hutan Mati, literally translate to English as The Dead Forest. The Dead Forest is a striking grey and white area filled by dead trees from the effect of the Papandayan Mountain eruption in 2002. As a result of the eruption, the Nangklak crater wall collapsed and caused the Cibeureum Gede River to be filled with the avalanche material. This caused severe flooding at that time. Seeing the Dead Forest does takes you to another world. The striking black color of the tree branches and light grey ground filled with sulfur, made this area surreal. Views like this are not encountered every day; it can be seen in professional photos or paintings but rarely in real life. Yet, here I was, in awe of the view.
