Pantai Kok Attractions

What to See in Pantai Kok

Pantai Kok has a pleasant range of tourist attractions to grab your attention. Besides relaxing on its clean-as-a-whistle beach, you can also head to the elaborate Oriental Village which plays host to a great deal of tourist attractions. The stunning Mat Chincang Mountain forms the perfect backdrop in the distance while the Telaga Harbour wharf – home to gleaming mega-yachts – makes you go green with envy at the sight.

Even though Langkawi is a small island, this quarter of the island manages to offer visitors more than a few entertainment options. Home to upscale resorts and a yacht haven, the crowds here are invariably a mix of well-heeled foreigners. Tourist attractions are spread out over Pantai Kok’s wide expanse making a car or a tour guide absolutely essential if you’d like to visit them all.

Anna & The King Gallery

Anna & The King Gallery

The only reason this exhibit warrants an entry is to warn Langkawi visitors that the Anna & The King Gallery has been dismantled. Which is actually an unfortunate loss considering the fact that it was actually a pretty good attraction. Displaying props and costumes from the 1999 film starring Jodie Foster – parts of which were shot at Pantai Kok – the maintenance costs of this attraction surpassed its novelty and authorities dismantled the set last year.

Falconry Encounters

Falconry Encounters

To cut a long story short, falconry involves the use of trained birds of prey in sport or for game hunting. Animal Adventures in the Oriental Village has a falconry exhibit – featuring two local varieties of eagles – where you’ll get to take a look at some of Langkawi’s famous raptors.
