Overview Of The Port Of Langkawi

About Langkawi
Langkawi is an archipelago of 104 islands in the Andaman Sea, 30km from the mainland of north western Malaysia in south east Asia.

The first thing visitors see when approaching the island is Kuah's Eagle Square, with it's 39ft tall outstretched Eagle statue. There are a number of souvenir kiosks at the nearby shopping and performance pavilion and the Langkawi Fair Shopping Mall is an easy 10 minute walk from the square. A popular souvenir are the beautifully handcrafted plates, made from the bark of Malaysian cinnamon trees.

The Craft Cultural Complex is located along the northern coast of the island. You'll be able to watch locals create magnificent pieces, from woodcarvings to batik paintings and shop for souvenirs.

Makam Mahsuri, based on a 200 year old legend, is located in the village of Kampung Mawat, about 11 miles northwest of Kuah, and includes a museum telling the history of Langkawi and its people. You'll also be able to see recreations of typical Malaysian villages and learn how they have evolved over time.

The Langkawi cable car (Kereta Kabel) around 30 miles away, takes visitors up more than 2,300ft, and offers views of some of the most spectacular peaks in Langkawi, including Mount Machinchang.

Seven Wells Waterfall, or Telaga Tujuh, is located near the Langkawi cable car and is a series of cascading falls, broken up by seven natural pools. (Note: The 30 minute trek up to the top can be quite steep at times).

Take a boat cruise through Kilim Nature Park, located 8 miles northeast of Kuah.

The lively Pantai Cenang beach is located 8 miles west of Kuah. Watersports, restaurants, cafes and shops are all nearby. Another option is the quieter Pantai Tanjung Rhu beach on the northern tip of the island.

Book a snorkel or dive trip to Pulau Payar Marine Park, one of the best spots for fish and the surrounding coral reefs.

Other nearby attractions include Langkawi's largest freshwater lake - the Lake of the Pregnant Maiden, located on Pulau Dayang Bunting, Laman Padi Langkawi Museum, Langkawi Crocodile Farm with over 3,000 crocodiles and Taman Lagenda Theme Park, a scenic park with beautifully landscaped gardens. The 50-acre park has 17 monuments depicting various folklore personalities inspired by local legend and history. There are also four artificial lakes and a man-made beach. Located near the Kuah Jetty Point and Eagle Square.

For an authentic taste of Malay cuisine, look for dishes cooked with coconut milk or chilli paste, for example meat, fish and vegetables sautéed in either seasoning.
