Welcome to Langkawi, the island of beautiful beaches, untamed forests, cheap shopping and fascinating legends. This island is known as the Jewel Of Kedath and rightly so! Even though it is popular with tourists, it has retained its pristine environment and peaceful surroundings. Just outside the main areas lies the idyllic rural Malaysia with rice paddies, wooden houses framed by palm trees and rustic sights that you won't find anywhere else. Langkawi may be a hotspot tourist destination, but it still is one of the most beautiful islands in southeast Asia.
