Stunning Cenang beach in Langkawi island, in Malaysia
Langkawi leaves beach lovers positively spoiled for choice. For a mix of natural beauty and a lively social scene, head to popular Pantai Cenang. Or get a taxi to the northern tip of the island and Tanjung Rhu, whose secluded sands are perfect for relaxation.
Seven wells waterfall with rocks into a stream of water in Langkawi, Malaysia
If you have the time, do yourself a favor and enjoy Langkawi's emerald interior. Hike to the Telaga Tujuh Waterfalls, which are also known as the Seven Wells due to the seven pools at their foot. Or summit Gunung Raya, whose 2,400-foot peak offers one of Langkawi's most impressive panoramas.
Of course, you don't need to over-exert yourself to enjoy a great view — or a perfect selfie. Ride Langkawi's Cable Car to the 2,000-foot high SkyBridge for panoramic views and a death-defying walk above the rainforest. Then head down to Kuah Jetty, where you can snap another selfie with Langkawi's iconic Eagle statue (the island's name means "Strong Eagle" in Old Malay).
Like the rest of Malaysia, Langkawi is a culinary melting pot that blends Muslim Malay food, Hokkien Chinese cuisine and spicy Indian flavors. Cruise to Langkawi to try traditional nasi lemak, with fragrant coconut rice, vanilla-esque Pandan leaves and spicy, garlicky sambal wrapped in a banana leaf. Or feast of char kway teow, stir-fried rice cakes spiced with chilies and topped with shrimp and bean sprouts.
Langkawi is a duty-free zone, so no matter where you get your shopping done, a bargain is never far away. 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.
