A Dive / Poetic Journal

Langkawi's skies and sleepy blue waters are seamless. You can't tell where heaven and earth meets sometimes. Everywhere I went, I was struck by the tranquility of the little island that had its fair share of storms and curses in the past. Be it exploring her underwater gardens or lush waterfalls, Langkawi is truly heaven on earth.

Beach near Mutiara Hotel

Langkawi's gems are not centred within her many touristy attractions but hidden quietly in the hills and seas. Of course I'm drawing some flak here but who can disagree about the beauty of her white sand beaches? All will beckon to you like a siren to stay a little longer. And under those waters lies another hidden world...

Beautiful Sea Creatures

Lots of beautiful sea creatures lie under Langkawi jade green waters, particularly near the protected marine sanctuary of Pulau Payar. For years, only the British Navy had access to this place but now it is opened to the public. Look what I saw when I was there!!

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:idyllic place to unwind and let time stand still
  • Cons:i can't think of anything at the moment.
  • In a nutshell:A little bit of heaven on earth......

    Very informative page on Langkawi. The island has many wonders above and below the sea. This is a great place to get in some birdwatching also .
