Pulau Langkawi

The most comfortable way to reach this exquisite Island is by air from Kuala Lumpur airport. As far as I remember it was one hour flight. The Langkawi International Airport is situated 20 kilometres from the main town Kuah. Langkawi is situated off the northwestern coast of Peninsular Malaysia, Pulau Langkawi is the largest among an archipelago of 99 islands collectively known as Langkawi.
Public transport is limited so the best way is to make arrangement with hotel resort for someone to pick you up at arrival. During your stay you can use taxi for visiting all parts of Island. It is very very cheap.
We stayed at Holiday Villa beach resort for 10 nights. It was beautiful and exotic experience. It is situated near beach and has great outdoor pool and jacuzzi. Rooms are spacious and food is great as well. Hotel staff is very friendly and caring.

Kuah main town

Take taxi to Kuah from your resort. It is very cheap. Kuah is small town, nothing special but interesting to see.
Kuah has its charms a few landmark attractions like Dataran Lang – also known as Eagle Square. You will be surprised at the beauty of the colossal eagle in flight statue.
It is a massive 12-metre monument in the shape of a sea eagle on rocks.

People are friendly, children especially.
