On the 3rd of February, I travelled to Pulau Langkawi for a week and managed to come across so many exciting attractions. Known as the Jewel of Kedah, Pulau Langkawi is a duty-free island as well as an archipelago of 104 islands in the Andaman Sea. This island is said to have many myths, one of them including the tale of Mahsuri. Legend has it that Mahsuri befell a curse on Langkawi for seven generations. Decades after Mahsuri’s death, the island had gone through a series of adversities.
Having reached the 7th generation, Langkawi has now emerged into a wonderful tourism in Malaysia. Such attractions can be found on the island like the Langkawi Cable Car, Hot Springs, Makam Mahsuri, Burnt Rice Museum, and so much more. I managed to try the island hopping package which brought me to three beautiful islands named Pulau Dayang Bunting, Pulau Beras Basah and Pulau Singa Besar. Not only did I enjoy sight-seeing but I also did a few activities such as fish and eagle feeding.
Aside from the clear water and dazzling corals, Langkawi is now the first geopark in Malaysia. For more information on Langkawi, visit Langkawi Travel Information
