PARADISE FOUND

Cruise to Langkawi, Malaysia

Langkawi is the jewel of Malaysia's Andaman Sea, a paradise island that feels far-removed but is easy to reach. Cruise to Langkawi and take the popular cable car ride up Mount Mat Chinchang, the island's second-tallest mountain — enjoy ocean vistas from the viewpoint halfway up, then take the remainder of the trip to the summit and walk the SkyBridge, a 400-foot-long viewing platform suspended 2,300 feet in the air between two forested peaks. Continue the thrills with a jet ski tour of the nearby islands, where you can descend into Gua Kelawar bat cave and hike through rainforests filled with exotic birds.

Like the rest of Malaysia, Langkawi is a culinary melting pot that blends Muslim Malay food, Hokkien Chinese cuisine and spicy Indian flavors.

Head to Pantai Cenang's Zon complex or Langkawi Parade Megamall in Kuah for deals on electronics, liquor, clothing — you name it. To find authentic local items during your Langkawi cruise, look for handmade batik or songket prints, made from silk or cotton and patterned with gold and sliver threads.

Insider's Tips
Insider's Tips
1 Heed warnings about jellyfish, which can unfortunately appear in Langkawi's waters year-round. Even if no warning is posted, keep an eye on the water at your feet to make sure none are present.
2 Beware touts offering express boat trips to nearby islands, or to not-so-nearby Penang. Langkawi's main island is huge, and plenty exciting enough for your brief stop.
