| 5 min read

Langkawi, an archipelago of islands in Malacca Strait, has idyllic natural parks, soaring peaks, charming countryside, and pristine white sand beaches. There are plenty of activities to enjoy here. Savor walking barefoot on Cenang Beach’s pearly white sand, or cherish the panoramic view of Langkawi from the curvy Sky Bridge. Those who love nature can explore mangroves through a boat tour in Kilim Geoforest Park or hike scenic trails and climb Gunung Raya’s 881-meter (2890-foot) summit, the highest in the archipelago. With so many places to explore, it is always a good idea to go island hopping when in Langkawi. For a laidback day, enjoy a relaxing spa treatment in Air Hangat Village’s hot springs or visit Mahsuri Tomb and Museum, a traditional Malay house. To stay in relaxing and beautifully appointed accommodations, check out the top villas with private pool in Langkawi, Malaysia.
