    A field of parched rice

    Field of Burnt rice or Beras Terbakar is located in the city of Padang Matsirat (Padang Matsirat). This place is of great importance to the locals and is notable for its sad history. In 1821, during the attack on the island of the Thai (Siamese) Army, the commanders decided to burn the rice field to leave the enemy army without food. Rice was collected from all the fields, dumped in a huge pit near the House of the king of the island Ku Halim Bin Ku Hassan, and burned. As a result, the conquerors abandoned their intentions. According to another version, the strategy did not work, and the Siamese conquered the island. Whatever it was, both versions are associated with the Curse of the island by the most beautiful girl Mahsuri.

  • Ancient graves of Makam Purba

    Graves Of Makam Purba

    In a very inconspicuous corner of the island of Langkawi in the village of Hutan Buloh there are two ancient graves of the Indonesian Aceh people. Acehnese still live in Indonesia on the island of Sumatra, as well as in Malaysia, and this is a fairly large nationality. These graves date back to the ancient period and are close to the local village mosque. They were discovered in 1975 by a local resident when digging a hole for the foundation of a new house. As a result, the house was not built on this site, and the graves were designated as a historical landmark, tombstones were installed here.

    For tourists, this place is of little note, there is practically nothing to see. You will see only two tombstones and a table with a brief description of the history of the place. But if you are a real adventurer, then "check in" in this place rarely visited by tourists is worth it. Learn more

    💵 Entrance fee / tickets price: free.

    🚶   How to get there: the ancient graves of Makam Purba are located in the center of the island away from the beach resorts in a village in the middle of rice fields (graves of Makam Purba on the map). You can get here by rented transport or taxi, walking is too far. You can find graves only by Navigator, the locals practically do not know this place. The only landmark for finding them is a modest signpost on a branch along Jalan Ulu Melaka road. Near the sign you need to turn into the field and drive another hundred meters. Excursions are not held here.

Temples and mosques of Langkawi

There are practically no interesting temples or mosques with a rich history or Bright Architecture in Langkawi. There are only a couple of small Buddhist and Hindu temples, a few mosques, including the largest Central Mosque of the island of Al-Hana, but there is no place where it would be worth specifically going to admire the beauty of the temples. Here is a list and a brief description of the most interesting religious buildings of the island:

  • Al-Hana Mosque

    Al-Khan Mosque

    It is the largest, most popular and most beautiful mosque in Langkawi. Magnificent golden domes tower over the surrounding palm trees, and the mosque itself is located in an excellent location on the Quah promenade next to the park "Legends of Langkawi".

  • Wat Koh Wanararm Temple

    Wat Koh Wanaram Temple

    Wat Koh Wanaram (also Wat Wanararm, also Luang Por Khun) – in our opinion the most interesting Thai Buddhist temple on the island. The" highlight " is the statue of the goddess of mercy Kuan Yin, carved directly into the marble rock. Rather, it has not yet been carved, and for several years it has been in the works, because the temples are built on donations, and there are not so many Buddhists on the island. In addition to the statue, the territory of the temple is interesting for its landscaped park with ponds, streams, bridges, beautiful plants and even gazebos. There are also eight stupas dedicated to different states of the soul. Wat Koh Wanaram is located a little off the road and away from populated areas, so it is always quiet and peaceful, and you can spend about an hour walking around the territory. Learn more

    🕐 Working hours: during daytime.

    💵 Entrance fee / tickets price: free.

    🚶   How to get there: The Temple is located in the West about two kilometers from the center of Kuah (on the map of Langkawi), slightly off the main road. You can get here by taxi or rented transport. On the main road of Jalan Ayer Hangat street there is a sign for the temple and the orchid farm, after turning on the sign you need to drive another two hundred meters and turn again (left) on the sign. Transport can be left at the site near the temple for free.

  • Wat Tham Kisap temple and Hindu temple

    Wat Tham Kisap Temple

    Another Thai Buddhist Langkawi temple located near the temple Wat Koh Wanararm. It is located at the foot of the same Marble Cliff as Koh Wanararm and a little off the road surrounded by trees. Interesting for a large number of sculptures of animals, mythical creatures and monks. There is a large statue of a golden sitting Buddha.

    Very close, just 100 meters along the cliff, is a modest Hindu temple. It is interesting for a shallow flat cave located behind the buildings of the temple in the marble rock.

    Both temples are worth coming here if you drive past on the main road, but especially for the sake of visiting here in this part of the island you should not go. Be careful, there are a lot of stray dogs in these places. Learn more

    🕐 Working hours: during daytime.

    💵 Entrance fee / tickets price: free.

    🚶   How to get there: The Temple is located in the West about two kilometers from the center of Kuah and a couple of hundred meters from the main road (on the map of Langkawi).

Turning to the temple and driving 200 meters, you will come to a fork, on the left of which there will be a Thai temple, and on the right a Hindu temple.

  • Sri Maha Mariamman Devasthana Temple

    Sri Maha Mariamman Devasthana Temple

    The Sri Maha Mariamman Devasthana Hindu temple is nothing special and most of the time it is empty, neither tourists nor locals. It is always open, including for tourists, and you can freely go inside to inspect and take pictures. It becomes crowded only during the Hindu holidays.

Entertainment in Langkawi

    Suspension bridge

    Of course, the cable Car (Cable Car) and the suspension bridge (Sky Bridge) should be included as a mandatory item in your stay on the island, as it is one of the most exciting entertainment and an iconic attraction.

  • Oriental Village

    Oriental Village

    The Oriental village of Langkawi ( Oriental Village) is a specially equipped 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.

    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. Learn more

    Underwater world

    If you have not been to such places before, then you should definitely visit the aquarium. It has more than 4,000 marine life, including fish and other aquatic animals, corals and reptiles. At a certain time, fish feeding is carried out, which is put in the form of a show.

  • Palau Payar Marine Park

    Palau Payar

    Pulau Payar marine park is located in the waters of the island of the same name, 30 kilometers south of Langkawi, on the sea route to Penang. There is no tourist infrastructure for a long tourist stay, and tourists are invited to visit the Reserve in the form of excursions for diving, snorkeling and relaxing on the beaches of the island. And this is almost the only place where there is moderately good diving and snorkeling in the vicinity of Langkawi Island.

    Before visiting this attraction, you should know not only about its advantages, but also about some disadvantages. First of all, the conditions for observing marine life and its diversity will surprise only inexperienced tourists. Unfortunately, sometimes you can be unlucky with the weather, and the water will be muddy, visibility is very poor. The way to the island is long, the tour will take all day, and most of it will go on the road.

  • Air Hangat Hot Springs

    Ayer Hangat Village hot springs
