Langkawi Must-see Atttractions

Langkawi is one of Malaysia’s best-known and most popular West Coast beach destinations. Blending historical attractions, great fare, excellent diving opportunities, exciting nightlife and dirt-cheap shopping, this duty-free island is truly an oasis of the seas.

Langkawi’s many beaches are rated among the best in the world while inland, Langkawi’s roads are incredibly easy to drive on and are oftentimes deserted. There are a few sights that you definitely need to check out before leaving this island and without having a good look around you’d be missing out.
