Langkawi, on Northwestern shore of Malaysia is a archipelago of Langkawi Islands. Situated Just where the Indian Ocean narrows down into the Straits of Melaka.

Nestled againts a dramatic backdrop of mountains are ancient lakes and forests,waterfalls and beaches,all of which enhance the wonder that is Langkawi.Blessed with blamy climate that promises warm temperatures throughout the year. The acrhipelago of Langkawi contains 99 Islands awaiting discovery and that is when the tide is high! At low tide,the Islands can number as many as 104. Sanctuary of some of the most ancient rainforest in the world,they are teeming with the exotic flora and fauna.

The largest island of Langkawi itself,measuring about 478.5 sq km,is the only one with real settelment. Almost as large as the island of Singapore, it is still very much undeveloped. Clad with jungles in the interior, it is fringed by lovely beaches scattered along its coast. The island is still very much a rural landscape with villages and padi fields.

Most of the development is in the main town of Kuah nad in isolated beach resorts around the coast.
