If you aren’t a fellow beach bum and likely to love the city than the island life, here are some reasons why you will love the sea, sun and sand. Travel to Pulau Langkawi for an ultimate island life experience!

Beach lovers will know what to do when you’re on the beach. Suntan, sip on some fresh margarita (virgin ones) and just…… relax, or people watch on the well known Pantai Cenang, on the south-west drift. For a quieter vibe, travel north to the calmer Tanjung Rhu.

Fortunately for the beach awkwards, there is more to Langkawi than just suntanning or frolicking in the sand. Here are other things you can do in Langkawi!


Board a watercraft at Kilim Jetty to visit the conduits of Kilim Karst Geoforest Park. You'll have a chance to spot pythons among the mangroves! Also, expect to see the amazing sight of bat settlements hanging inside the limestone caves!


Pack your boots and climb, to the hints of screeching cicadas and trilling fowls, in the thick rainforest on the slopes of Gunung Raya and Gunung Machincang, Langkawi's most astounding mountains. Then, follow the trails to Telaga Tujuh waterfalls, whose seven pools are related mythical fairy tales. It is recommended to bring a guide along as the trail could be trying for amateurs!

Cable cars are generally connected with winter occasions, however, riding the Langkawi Skycab lifts you over the dense canopy of the rainforest decking Gunung Machincang. The pinnacle of the lofty sided mountain stands 708m above ocean level, where viewing decks demonstrate famous spots for appreciating views of the island. On crisp mornings, you can even see the coastline of southern Thailand past the glinting Andaman Sea.

Only 30km south of Langkawi Island is Pulau Payar Marine Park, a spot for snorkeling and diving. It is around 45 minutes from Kuah Jetty and you can take either a sailboat or a speedboat to arrive. One of Pulau Payar Marine Park's best highlights is its Coral Garden, a section loaded with vivid corals.


You can cross the 125-meter long Sky Bridge, the world's longest free traverse, suspended from a 82m high single pylon and hangs at about 100m above ground. It can accommodate up to 250 people at the same time. Get your best selfies from the island’s vantage point!
