Langkawi location

Langkawi is located on the northwestern peninsula of Malaysia and is an archipelago of 99 islands at high tide and 104 at low tide. Situated closer to Thailand than to mainland Malaysia (just 25km away), its waters are where the Indian Ocean narrows to meet the Straits of Malacca.

Langkawi is located only 800km from the Equator and is blessed with year-round warm temperatures and warm waters. The archipelago is famous for its white beaches and the relaxed and its slow paced island life. However, the jewels in our tourism crown are also the Langkawi Geopark and its natural treasures of serrated mountains that are home to a vast array of birds, butterflies, reptiles and animals.

Langkawi is a duty free Island that makes for a great value holidaying.
