LANGKAWI

Langkawi, the Jewel of Kedah is an archipelago of 99 islands (an extra 5 temporary islands are revealed at low tide) in the Andaman Sea, some 30 km off the mainland coast of northwestern Malaysia.

Telaga Tujuh Waterfalls aka Seven Wells is named after the seven natural pools along its path. Legend has it that fairies used to come down to the pools to bathe and frolic. There are 2 viewing areas at Telaga Tujuh. The lower area is at the base of the waterfall and the higher area is where the 7 pools are. You can bathe in the pools and even slide down the slick rock between them. There is also a jungle trekking course available at the site which will lead you through a trail of up to 2,500 m, up two different mountains.

For a spectacular view of the islands and Thailand, take a cable car to the top of Gunung Mat chinchang and walk across the 700m high Sky Bridge. It includes a very steep section which is spectacular both going up and coming down. Eagle Square is another tourist attraction featuring a giant eagle statue. It is beautifully landscaped with scenic ponds, bridges and covered terraces, and is especially a sight to behold when illuminated at night.

For those who would like to relax and enjoy the beach and sea, Pantai Cenang is the place to be. It is the most popular beach in Langkawi featuring fine powdery sand and many beachfront restaurants and bars. Located at the south-western tip of the island, it is two kilometres long. Scuba diving and snorkelling is an activity best around Pulau Payar Marine Park. There is a viewing platform for relaxation between underwater adventures.
