This private island, located off the main island of Langkawi, Malaysia, is made for photography and relaxation lovers. We put our feet up for a few hours and watched the boats sail by as the gentle, warm wind kissed our cheeks.
Several man-made "birds nests" like this one are dotted around the island. You really can't capture a bad angle of this little slice of paradise.
Amidst Langkawi's street food culture and modest local restaurants sits authentic Italian restaurant, Gallo Nero. If you’re looking for home-made pasta or a juicy cut of meat cooked to perfection and paired perfectly with quality imported wine, this is the place to go. Anyone who's traveled to Italy will immediately recognize the menu structure, incorporating liqueurs, antipasti, pasta, mains, and of course dolci (dessert)!
Some of Langkawi's most beautiful sunsets are experienced over endless rice fields with towering mountains in the distance. Guests of Sunset Valley Holiday Houses have this exquisite scene as their backyard. 6 self-contained wooden homes allow you to taste traditional Malay village life without sacrificing modern comforts. Guests can also access shared areas including a barbecue area, and a swimming pool with views over rice paddies.
A temple with a towering golden Buddha statue would be a major tourist draw in most Southeast Asian cities. But in Langkawi, Wat Tham Kisap and its ornate statues are hidden down a quiet backroad, unbeknownst to many locals. The intricate and brightly colored temple complex is built into a limestone cliff, with a small cave located at the back the main prayer hall.
For Langkawi's best nightlife, you won't need DJs or overpriced drinks. Instead, immerse yourself in the sunset orchestra of chirping cicadas on JungleWalla's Rainforest Afterdark tour. Guests are escorted up Langkawi's tallest mountain to glimpse ancient plant species, timid dusky leaf monkeys, cheeky macaques, graceful oriental pied hornbills, and more. The nocturnal tour continues to a nearby recreational park to glimpse the rare sunda colugo, also known as the flying lemur.
Wake up overlooking the turquoise waters and towering islands of Tanjung Rhu Beach from the comfort of a 5-star resort. Sandwich your day with walks along the powder-fine sandy shores to catch a golden sunrise and colorful sunset. Choose between the sea and the pool for a refreshing swim, or visit the luxurious Mandara Spa for a relaxing massage. You'll have to drag yourself out of the Tanjung Rhu Resort to explore the other beautiful sites of Langkawi.
Who says you can't have fun while eating healthy and ethically? Langkawi's first fully plant-based restaurant, Kolma uses pure, locally-sourced ingredients to make vegan-friendly bagels, burrito bowls, sushi bowls, nacho bowls, and more. Brunch options include colorful smoothie bowls with home-made granola in flavors like papaya and mango. At Kolma, you’re guaranteed to find delicious, dairy-free desserts with a range of cheesecakes, bliss balls, and other sweet treats.
