With 99 islands to explore, a Langkawi holiday from The Co-operative Travel will introduce you to a rich variety of beautiful scenery and incredible wildlife
This tropical island, just off the west coast of peninsular Malaysia, has rolling mountains, vast paddy fields, sleepy rural villages, mysterious caves and pockets of virgin rainforests dating back millions of years.
On top of all this, you can also relax on mile after mile of white sandy beaches.
A trip to local villages will teach you all about rice planting, batik painting and pottery making, and you can then stop off at the Cultural Craft Complex to buy some of these wares to bring home.
The beaches each have their own individual character, and are perfect for long, lazy, relaxing days spent watching the boats and yachts drift by.
Langkawi is the home of duty free shopping in Malaysia. Throughout the Island there are a variety of shops, bazaars and shopping centres to choose from. You will find the biggest collections of shops and malls, offering a range of products from fashion and cosmetics to electrical goods, in the central commercial area, while in the bazaars you can hunt down local goods including batik, handicraft and crystals.
A trip to Kilim Nature Park is a great day out to see giant sea eagles, tree crabs and iguanas, best experienced by taking a boat cruise along the river. There are many activities to keep you busy during your stay in Langkawi including cave exploring, sailing, fishing, jungle trekking, white water rafting and scuba diving.
Food in Langkawi is a real mix, from traditional Malay, to exotic seafood, tasty Thai and regional western. For great value you can eat among the locals at a number of small, intimate cafes, or push the boat out at one of the many upmarket hotels and restaurants.
Langkawi holiday accommodation comprises mainly hotels in the area's beach resorts. Most are modern, well-equipped, and offer good value for your Langkawi package holiday or all-inclusive holiday.
