The idea for Galeria Perdana was mooted by Prime Minister Yang Amat Berhormat Dato' Seri Dr Mahathir bin Mohamad.This unique gallery was built to display and share with everyone the various awards, souvenirs and gifts our Prime Minister and his wife have received from world leaders, statesmen as well as Malaysians during his tenure.
Adopting an oriental architectural design, the awe-inspiring building displays the various exhibits in an ambience of harmony and creative interaction.
One section is devoted to gifts made of wood, leather, crystal and lacquer, as well as musical instruments and stone objects. Another section comprises textiles, games, weaponry, ceramics, plaques and Islamic art.There are also gifts of silver, copper, brass and pewter. There is even an array of automobiles.
Some of the exhibits are special awards received by the Prime Minister and his wife. Take time to wander around the Galeria and read the footnotes accompanying each exhibit.The extensive grounds around the building are also very interesting as they are specially landscaped and planted with local trees, shrubs and herbs.

Perched on a strategic location near the sea at Teluk Yu, the Craft Cultural Complex was set up to maintain and promote the nation's rich cultural heritage.
Beautifully and intricately handmade crafts can be found here, reflecting the skill and creativity that have been handed down from generation to generation.
Silver and brassware in various forms and shapes are carefully carved with motifs inspired by nature. Unique baskets of rattan, mengkuang and pandan leaves are woven in colourful ethinic designs. There are also woodcarvings with fine and meticulous patterns.
Ceramics in the form of pots come from various states in Malaysia, each with their own individual designs. An ever popular favourite is the hand-drawn and printed batik with innumerable exclusive designs to choose from.
Songket or silkinterwoven with golden and silver threads is the epitome of Malay design, used for all official and royal functions.
The ethnic tribes of Sabah and Sarawak are represented by the intricately woven baskets, beadwork and bamboo carvings with designs that are hundreds of years old. Pua weaving of the Iban tribe and Mogah textiles of the Bajaus are also displayed here in their glory.
With a cultural heritage spanning generations, the crafts have been painstakingly preserved. You can see and appreciate them in our Langkawi craft museums.

Summer Palace (Anna & The King Movie Set)
In 1999, when Thailand turned Hollywood away for the filming of the movie "Anna & The King", starring Jodie Foster and Chow Yun Fat, the production team discovered Langkawi.
The Summer Palace in Chiengmai was thus recreated in Pantai Kok, with its beautiful green surroundings, to represent the Jetty Pavillion, the main building of the palace, courtyard and Anna's house.
Construction commenced on 15 February 1999 and was completed on 30 March 1999.
Constructed in one and a half months, this movie set is 95% wood. When filming was completed in June 1999, the set was not dismantled but reconstructed to make it a permanent structure.
Today, visitors will find a touch of the modern within this old Thai replica as the Summer Palace in Langkawi
It was opened to the public in April 2000.
Admission is RM3.50 for adults and RM2.00 for children.
Directions: Pantai Kok
Continue from Mount Mat Chinchang Cable Car 2
Looking from the top along the south coast of Langkawi. The Oriental Village and cable car base station is at the bottom middle.
At the middle station, having climbed 650 meters (about 2,150 feet) up from sea level, you can alight from the car to take in the view, or stay in the gondola while it makes a nearly 90° turn to head up to the top station. If you elect to step off, you can catch another gondola up to the top station on the other side of the control booth.
If you've managed to keep your lunch down on the way to the middle station, then the trip to the top station is easy. From the top you can see much of the island, its surrounding islands, and even Tarutao Island in Thailand to the north.
There is a small snack bar at the top station, which has a rather space-age look with its round viewing platforms.
The round-trip fare for adults is RM 15 (US$ 4.00), for children the fare is RM 5 ($1.25). Operating hours are 10:00 am to 8:00 pm daily, and the operation may be curtailed in extreme weather.
Directions: Gunung Mat Chinchang
