The tiny Malaysian archipelago of Langkawi is home to an abundance of unique people, plants and animals thanks to its unique geography. The giant mountains jutting out of the turquoise water offer a truly breathtaking view of the Andaman Sea, and the hills are dotted with lush rain forests where immense biodiversity thrives. Outside of the several villages that populate the main island, visitors can explore expansive paddy fields, beaches, lakes and lagoons.
The Malaysian government takes great care to preserve this international attraction, and UNESCO recognizes several locations as world heritage Geopark sites including Mount Mat Cincang, Kilim Reserve Forest and Dayang Bunting Island, which is popular for its impressive limestone caves, outcrops and seascapes. While most major nature attractions can be reached by car or taxi on the main island, some require taking a boat to one of the other 103 small islands that make up Langkawi. Boat rentals and tours and easy to find in areas that cater to travelers.
