Pulau Langkawi Travel Guide: 1,376 reviews and 3,180 photos
Langkawi which in the state of Kedah, is made up of 99 other tropical islands off the north-western coast of Peninsula Malaysia. It is about 30km from Kuala Perlis and 51km from Kuala Kedah. To get to Langkawi by road from Kuala Lumpur, the capital city of Malaysia , is a 6hours journey drive to Kuala Kedah and then another 1hour and 15minutes ferry ride from jetty to jetty.
The main island is Langkawi – “Lang” being the Malay word for “Eagle” – an island with many myths and legends of ogres and gigantic birds, warriors and fairy princesses, battles and romances. It is indeed an island of sun and fun, sea and beaches amidst the fabulous tales and legends. Langkawi - a popular holiday getaway not only to the tourists but to many locals as well.
