Is Langkawi a place you should visit? Does it have beautiful beaches? Is there anything to do? I have spent a week in the island and that’s what I found out.
If you are planning to visit Langkawi you have read and mostly probably thought that this is an island north of Malaysia. It is in fact quite a big archipelago, right on the border with Thailand, not just a single island. In saying that most of the traveller tend to visit Palau Langkawi, the biggest island, where most of the population is.
This is a duty free island and it may appeal the tourists looking for tax free bargains or just after cheaper alcohol. I am not usually a party animal when travelling I must say however I quite enjoyed my cheap sunset cocktails in Pantai Cenang, the main beach in Langkawi.
