OVERVIEW

Langkawi is a stunning archipelago of 99 islands situated off the western coast of Malaysia. Lapped by sparkling azure waters and boasting pristine beaches and lush tropical jungle, the islands are synonymous with paradise-like beauty. They are also known for being a duty-free shopping hub, and the combination of the two draws tourists from all over the world.

The main island is also called Langkawi and offers excellent diving as well as a variety of intriguing attractions and luxury resorts. For some romantic honeymoon snaps head to the iconic Dataran Lang, otherwise known as Eagle Square, so called because of the towering eagle sculpture which stands here poised as if to take sudden flight. With this looming statue and the square’s miniature bridges, fountains and terraces, this is the ideal place for a photo opportunity.

Another perfect backdrop for photographs is the Langkawi Cable Car, which takes you on a breath-taking 15-minute journey up to the summit of 708m Mount Mat Cincang. Drink in the spectacular vistas from the observation deck before enjoying a light bite and some souvenir shopping, then making your way back down the mountainside.

Some of the other attractions to be found on Langkawi include the likes of Underwater World Langkawi in Pantai Cenang, the biggest aquarium in Malaysia, and the Telaga Tujuh Waterfalls, situated among the island’s western hills. Said to be the residing place of fairy spirits, these seven waterfalls are guaranteed to enchant you and are a great place to take a refreshing dip in the tropical heat.

While you are visiting Langkawi, honeymooners can also enjoy a variety of other activities, including fun-filled island hopping tours, snorkelling and scuba diving trips, and even an Eagle Feeding and Mangrove Tour, or perhaps a super-romantic Sunset Dinner Cruise.

Climate

Langkawi is consistently hot all year round with humidity and the occasional rainfall, however this is never too drastic. Between November and April the daytime weather can average between 30 and 35-degrees, while the heat still prevails between 28 and 29-degrees. The hotter months allow visitors to enjoy the amazing outdoors with excellent diving and watersport activities.

 

Due to the monsoon winds, Langkawi can experience heavy rainfall between September to October and even see chances of thunderstorms. Although the monsoon brings windy thunderstorms, the sea does not get aggressive and stays relatively calm.
