  104, er, no 99 mini-langkawi islands
by bpacker

Do you know that there are 104 islands in Langkawi and only 99 can be seen during high tide? I'm not kidding. Just look at the map! There are that many islands and you'll get to see them if you arrange for an island hopping tour. Even if you don't dive, it's something not to be missed as each of these little isles are pockets of protected little sactuaries containing lovely flora and fauna. If you're really lucky, you'll even get to see frolicking dolphins in the waters..

Here's just some of the better known islands:

->Pulau Dayang Bunting (Island of the Pregnant Maiden), so named as it is shaped like a pregnant lady. There's also a lake in the centre. Avoid drinking the lake waters at all cost if you're a guy ! Apparently, anyone who drinks from it can get impregnated, haha.

->Pulau Singa Besar

->Pulau Kaca, Pulau Segantan, Pulau Lembu and of course Pulau Payar ( diving sanctuaries )

Contact details for a 3day island hopping tour can be found in the link.
