Discover the urban and rural areas of the Langkawi islands, a beautiful archipelago off the mainland coast of northwestern Malaysia. This tour takes you to charming rural villages and lush untouched scenery as you learn the unique history and legends behind the sights.
A voyage out from your hotel takes you to this serene collection of 140 islands, only a few of which are inhabited. Visit Makam Mahsuri, where the legendary island beauty said to have cursed Langkawi for 7 generations was laid to rest, and drive through quaint Malay villages and paddy fields with muddy water buffaloes and rubber plantations.
Visit the Atma Alam Art Village and Eagle Square, where a 39-foot-high (12-m) eagle statue stands tall. You can stop for some quick duty-free shopping in Kuah before you set out to admire the serene landscapes of Langkawi. Get a sense of where the islands get their name—the Jewel of Kedah—before you enjoy comfortable and convenient transportation back to your hotel.
