Oriental village of Langkawi is a specially designed tourist attraction village. But do not be deceived by the name and believe that the village is intended for those who want to get acquainted with the life and way of life of the inhabitants of a typical Malay village. In fact, it does not smell like a village. The main commercial idea of its creators is to gather in one place a large number of tourists and a large number of Dutch Fries and souvenir shops, so that trade goes more briskly. More than 30 duty-free shops have settled here. And so that there were not only shops around and tourists were not too bored, entertainment, cafes and restaurants were added here, and a beautiful atmosphere was created. Over time, this attraction has grown into a mini-town. Here, right on the street, artists paint portraits, traditional music is heard, you can see performances of folk performers and theatrical performances. Here you can simply buy fast food and wander along the streets from shop to shop, watch fish in the Pond, swim in the mini-pool, go on a tour on amphibious boat (Duck Tour), visit the 3D museum, take a Segway ride, ride elephants and much more.
In general, even despite the commercial orientation, it is worth visiting the village, especially since you can not pass it, because the Langkawi cable car station is located here.
