Are you after a holiday that combines some of Malaysia’s finest resorts, most stunning beaches and UNESCO-listed natural beauty? Whether you are on the lookout for a romantic getaway, after some well-earned rest and relaxation, or after a budget-friendly destination for the family, your perfect holiday awaits in Langkawi.

Five unforgettable experiences in Langkawi include:

1) Take in the stunning view from the Skybridge


For a breathtaking experience, the Langkawi Skybridge is world-class. Clinging to a 700 metre high mountain ridge, the 125 metre long pedestrian bridge offers incredible views of the Andaman Sea.

You’ll get to the Skybridge by taking an awe-inspiring cable car journey to the top of Gunung Mat Chinchang.

How to get there: The Cable Car Park is located at the Oriental Village, a 30 minute drive from Kuah town and 15 minutes drive from Langkawi International Airport. Regular tours are also available to the Cable Car Park, and can be easily arranged in Langakwi.

The Cable Car Park is open daily, and entry is approximately RM30 for adults (approximately $AUD10) and RM20 for children (approximately $AUD7).For more information go to:

2) Do absolutely nothing at all…

Home to warm waters and gorgeous beaches, Langkawi is the perfect destination if you’re looking for lazy days, and a holiday far away from the bustling pace of daily life.  Many of the resorts in Langkawi are set on private beach fronts, but you can also head to Pantai Cenang Beach, which is the liveliest beach in Langkawi, and popular with locals and travellers alike.

On Langkawi’s beaches, you can go sailing, kayaking, power boating, or snorkelling to discover the stunning sea life.  

3) Pampering pleasures

Langkawi is home to some of the world’s most beautiful spas. After a hard day spent sight-seeing, swimming, or sunbathing, unwind with a spa treatment. In Pantai Cenang (the main strip of Langkawi) you’ll find a range of spas specialising in different massage techniques.

However if you want to truly spoil yourself head to one of Langkawi’s resorts for a truly decadant treatment. Top picks include:

  • Four Seasons, Langkawi


  • Mandra Spa, Datai Langkawi


  • V Botanical Spa, The Andaman, Langkawi


4) Take a cruise around the islands

Island cruises are a great way to relax and take in the breathtaking scenery of Langkawi. A round trip around Dayang Bunting and Beras Basah Island takes about four hours, with boats departing daily from Pantai Cenang Beach.

For the luxury traveller, you can also charter your own private yacht, where you can indulge in a sumptuous champagne picnic lunch, or a sunset cruise with cocktails, from Langkawi’s Yacht Club.

5) Book a day trip to Pulau Payar Marine Park

Snorkelling and scuba diving in the clear waters of Palau Payar Marine Park marine sanctuary is a favourite holiday activity for Aussie travellers.  About an hour away by speedboat, or 45 mins by catamaran, at Pulau Payar Marine Park you’ll find an array of bright, vibrant coloured corals.

How to get there: Pulau Payar is just 30km south-east of Langkawi Island. You can get there from Kuah Jetty in Langkawi by speed boat or catamaran. The journey takes about 1 hour.
