Places to see in Langkawi Island, things to do in Langkawi Island, Malaysia

1. Pantai Cenang

Pantai Cenang – Langkawi’s main vein – may not be as rowdy as the Las Vegas strip but it is Malaysia’s most developed west-coast beach; its shores are a gorgeous mix of white sand, crystalline turquoise-blue waters and verdant palms.

 

 

 

2. Telaga Tujuh Waterfalls

The name of this waterfall means ‘Seven Wells’, referring to a collection of seven intertwined natural pools fed by seven separate waterfalls in Mount Mat Cincang. Locals claim that fairies reside in the area but tourists are more likely to find the flora around the water more magically appealing. Some unique lime plants and Sintuk, a climbing type of foliage, grow abundantly. Intrepid travelers can climb to the top of the falls in 45 minutes, hopefully spotting some macaque monkeys, hornbills or a giant squirrel along the way.

 

 

3. Air Terjun Temurun Watefall

The Temurun waterfalls are conveniently located in the Mat Cincang Nature Park of Datai, offering the ‘hot’ visitor refreshing waters from the mountains. The waters cascade down a 30 m drop, forming a nice pool below which you can swim in. This is indeed a spectacular waterfall to visit, but only when it isn’t the dry season as the waterfall will flow to a trickle during this period.

 

 

4. Langkawi Cable Car

The Oriental Village in the upper northwest of Langkawi Island, near Pantai Kok, is the entrance for the cable-car ride, which takes visitors all the way up to Mount Mat Cincang, Langkawi’s second highest peak. Entering the village and passing through the pleasant oriental garden and souvenir shops, visitors make their payment at a counter before stepping onto an escalator which brings them to the cable-car pedestal.

 

 

5. Gunung Raya Mountain

The story behind Raya Mountain is deeply connected with its neighbour, the Mat Cincang Mountain. Once upon a time there lived two giants name Mat Cincang and Mat Raya in Langkawi. Despite being very close friends, they got into an argument one day at the wedding of their children. The giants grabbed the nearest items around them, which were pots and pans. In the fracas, a pot of curry fell on the spot of Kuah town, which is why its name means gravy in Malay.

 

 

6. Sungai Kilim Nature Park

The Kilim river brims with life; hornbills, Brahminy Kites and the giant sea eagles reside in the sky while mudskippers and colourful crabs climb across coastal vines, the deer and squirrels darting about the trees. To appreciate the scenery, a cruise along the river of this fabulous nature park is highly recommended. There are many blue lagoons and caves just waiting to be explored! Spanning an area of 100 sq. km, this park is not to be missed.

 

 

7. Makam Mahsuri

The famous legend of Langkawi; the legend tells the tale of a woman accused of adultery and sentenced to death. When stabbed, she bled white blood as a sign of her innocence. Today, visitors can see read the full story at her tomb in Kampung Mawat, several kilometres away from Kuah. Nearby is also a traditional Malay house for internationals to explore.

 

 

8. Dataran Lang (Eagle Square)

Visitors arriving at the Kuah Jetty will notice a giant red eagle statue permanently suspended in mid-flight. That marks the location of the Kuah Jetty Eagle Square; a mini park filled with scenic ponds, bridges, covered terraces, restaurants and barrel vaults made of bricks. The square is a great place to take a stroll with friends and family as the sea breeze gently caresses your face.

 

 

 

9. Langkawi Crocodile Farm

Crocodile shows are on at 11:15 and 14:45 while feeding time is at 10:30.

 

 

 

10. Laman Padi (Rice Garden)

Rice, rice and rice – This is the bread of Asians, a necessary ingredient to every meal. The Rice Garden is dedicated to the humble grain, imparting knowledge of its history from the museum, demonstrating its cultivation in the farm and finally tasting its goodness in the restaurant! Located just ten minutes away from the airport, the ticket price costs RM2 but children get to go in free.
