Langkawi Information

Travel and Local Information Guide

Langkawi is an archipelago of 99 islands, 30km off the west coast of Peninsular Malaysia. It was a sleepy backwater until 1987 when the Malaysian government granted the island tax-free status in order to promote its tourism industry. The following tourist boom was impressive and spurred Langkawi to become prominent on almost every international travel agency's travel radar.

Getting around the 478.5sqkm island, navigating through its airport as well as dealing with local customs can be difficult, which is why we compiled all the info that you might need onto this page. So take your time and familiarise yourself with the local landscape, and enjoy your holiday when you get here.
