Langkawi 2011 - Holiday Island

Langkawi - one of the most famous holiday islands in Malaysia, has long been a magnet for International tourists. I have always wanted to visit the island, but didn't manage to do so until recently. A case of "too near, yet too far syndrome" I guess.

Once you touch down on the island, you can see why it is such a popular destination. The scenery is just beautiful. It has turquoise seas, majestic mountains, and an idyllic kampung setting. Though there are not as many resorts as in places like Bali or Phuket, but that is a huge part of its low-key charm.

Did you fly there via KL or Penang? Which do you like better - Langkawi or KK?

Went through Penang. It was a very short flight.

I like both KK and Langkawi for different reasons. KK is a city and there are lots of interesting things to see and do. Langkawi is more of a holiday island so a good place for relaxing.
Looks beautiful and calm place for holiday. Even from pictures I assume that there are many things to do especially with family.
