The island of Langkawi can offer tourists a full range of traditional tourist attractions that will not let you get bored here all the rest. In addition to excursions or independent trips toattractions, here you can go golf on one of the courses, ride horses or elephants, go trekking in the jungle, swim to nearby islands for diving or snorkeling, and much more. That's good, you do not have to look for entertainment, they will find you. A lot of promotional booklets with Entertainment offers and free maps of the island meet tourists at the airport, and will be offered during the rest constantly. The popular beaches of Langkawi, Pantai Chenang and Pantai Tengah, offer a lot of traditional water activities: bananas, parasailing, jet ski rental, etc. In general, during the day you will not be bored here.

Unfortunately, with evening and night rest here the situation is somewhat worse. Evening and night holidays in Langkawi are presented in the form of late-night bars, pubs, restaurants with sunset views. But lovers of nightclubs will be disappointed, here they are not, on the whole island. Prostitution on the island is poorly developed, not at all like in Thailand. You can find girls, but the prices are higher, and they will have to look in the city of Kuah in the area of the Bellavista Hotel.

Below is a list and description of the most popular attractions in Langkawi, which can be visited independently or with a tour:

  • Cable car and suspension bridge

    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.

    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.
