7 Things To Do At Langkawi

Paradise is often synonymous with the idyllic lifestyles on Malaysia’s tropical islands. Amongst those, Langkawi is arguably the best-known. It features diverse biomes including pristine beaches, mangrove swamps, misty rainforests and gorgeous waterfalls. Here are some of our favourite things to do and see on the beautiful island of Langkawi.  

Cable Car Rides
Langkawi’s cable car rides are especially breath-taking. The views of deep valleys and mountainous regions will leave you awestruck. For those who are acrophobic, this experience may cure your phobia, as the beauty of the vistas overcomes your fears.

Climb the Sky Bridge
Ascend the staircase from the last stop of the Langkawi Cable Car ride and you’ll get to the 125 metre-long Sky Bridge. Perched 700 metres above sea-level, the dazzling view of the island beyond awaits you. Just be sure to take a selfie while sitting on the glass floors!

Feed the Eagles
Langkawi is named after the ‘helang’ or white bellied fish eagles that colonised the island long before we did. And you won’t get a better view of them than on a boat ride around the island. Tour guides chum the waters with bait to give you magnificent views of the birds of prey.
