Known as the Jewel of the Kedah, Langkawi is a treasured oasis for diving, snorkelling, trekking, luxury retreat, or sun-soaking holiday. Visitors marvel at the clear blue-green colour of the water and the pristine white sands. Langkawi will take your breath away, and you don’t have to sacrifice luxury and comfort to discover it.
The Langkawi archipelago is made up of 99 islands with mountain ranges and forests that are around 550 million years old. It was originally a part of the supercontinent Gondwanaland in ancient times until tectonic forces created the spectacular island it is today.
Langkawi is 30 kilometres from the northwestern coastline, and south of the border of Thailand. The World Geopark is a very special part of the world, full of protected mangroves, cascading waterfalls, ancient rock formations and virgin jungle. Wildlife enthusiasts come here to spot great hornbills, kingfishers, and of course, the elusive colugo (the world’s only flying monkey). The Langkawi Skybridge is a breathtaking way to see the forest from above, as is the cable car riding to the top of Gunung Mat Chinchang.
A diver’s paradise all year round, Langkawi boasts a vibrant and healthy marine life. Come here for shipwrecks, thriving ecosystems, colourful coral reefs, whale sharks, and damsel lionfish.
