Langkawi Travel Blog› entry 8 of 19 › view all entries
Langkawi is a beautiful place with breathtaking views of the ocean, soft sandy beach, trendy restaurants and bars, and a nice place for chilling out by the beach.
The best part is Langkawi is a duty-free area, alcohol and cigarettes are really cheap here, and a little tipsy is a lot of fun!
My only regret is not coming here sooner..
Sights & Attractions
§ Tanjung Rhu beach
Watch sunset on first day here, spent time swimming, chilling by the beach and star gazing.
It is said that Langkawi has the clearest skies of West Malaysia
During low tide, walk on the sand banks to nearby islands, looks like walking on water..
§ Cenang beach
The place for nice dining, the beach stretch is lined with both trendy western restaurants or local seafood and Malay food.
Also has lots of shops selling beach wear

Sneaked a dip in the pool in the middle of the night - thought I saw a shooting star, I made a wish anyway..
