What to Do in Langkawi A to Z

List of All Attractions in Langkawi by Alphabetical Order

Anyone who thinks that Langkawi just consists of pretty beaches and clear waters is in for a surprise.

It’s not the place for temples, ruins and notable architecture – instead it’s the island’s abundant nature, spas, local culture and yes, its undersea action that draws visitors. We’ve listed out the island’s attractions so you’ll have a better idea of what you want to include on your itinerary during your next visit to Malaysia’s west coast darling.
