Langkawi, the Jewel of Kedah

Home / Tickets / Update* / Blog


The official name of the island of Langkawi is "Langkawi the Jewel of Kedah", or, in Malay, Langkawi Permata Kedah. Langkawi actually is an archipelago, a group of islands, located in the Andaman sea, about 30 km offshore from the Malaysia mainland, not too far from Penang. The Langkawi archipelago, all 100 separate little islands of it, are part of the Malaysian state of Kedah.

Bus to Langkawi

The biggest of Langkawi's islands is the eponymously-named Pulau Langkawi (pop. 65,000) with Kuah as its largest town. And, apart perhaps from Pulau Tioman, Langkawi is arguably Malaysia's best known holiday destination. Langkawi certainly is Malaysia's most ardently promoted holiday destination, and with good reason, given Langkawi's gorgeous long white sandy beaches, lush verdant jungle-covered hilly interior and rugged, almost iconic, mountain peaks. So bring your camera.

Bus to Langkawi

Langkawi's most popular beaches are found on its west coast. This part of Langkawi also offers a generous selection of restaurants and other kinds of eateries, as well as some of the finest resorts in Langkawi.
