Langkawi

Overview

  • Flight Time: 12 Hours
  • Time Zone: UTC +8:00
  • Best Time to Travel: November - March

Langkawi is one of Malaysia's most unspoilt tropical islands with spectacular scenery and some truly wonderful beaches. Slow paced and relaxed with hideaway coves, lush forested hills, limestone caves and sun-soaked beaches surrounded by tiny deserted atolls.

The largest in a cluster of mostly uninhabited islands located at the tip of peninsula Malaysia, Langkawi combines rugged beauty with modern comforts. With its beautiful sweeping coastline, sandy bays, inviting warm water and tropical vegetation, it’s no wonder why the island is renowned for some of Malaysia’s finest beaches among locals and sun-loving tourists from across the globe.

Over 100 islands make up an archipelago where the largest island of Langkawi boasts an ever-increasing array of hotels, restaurants and nightlife options. What brought the first holidaymakers here (the starched white beaches, swaying palms and balmy waters) are still the impressive main attractions. The most popular time to visit is in the dry season from November to March, but even during the wet season thunderstorms quickly clear and holidaymakers are soon back on the sands waiting with a cooling sundowner for one of the epic local sunsets.

Cool highland hideaways roll down to warm, sandy beaches and rich, humid mangroves. For the perfect holiday full of surprises, the time is now, the place is Malaysia.
