Langkawi, the Jewel of Kedah is a chains of 99 islands in the Andaman Sea, some 30 km off the mainland coast of northwestern Malaysia. Langkawi is famous with Mahsuri legend, the legend speaks of a young woman who was accused of adultery and was executed by the public despite her pleading innocence. Mahsuri, before her death, made a curse on the island for seven generations of bad luck. Now days, with the combination of Mahsuri legend, historical places and duty free shop, Langkawi become one of the famous island in Malaysia.

My Favourite place in Langkawi is Pantai Cenang and Pantai Tengah. In Pantai Cenang itself offers variety of restaurant, spa, resorts and night market. You can choose from 5star to budget chalet according to your budget and most of the hotel itself offers spa and massage for your relaxation. If you looking for different view and experience, you can try BON TON resort@ Pantai Cenang.
BON TON offered you a unique padi village lifestyle with affordable price. The villa itself is unique Malay houses and the villa are centered around pool/jacuzzi and front onto serene logoon.What a amazing gateway...

Well,another attraction of Langkawi is Duty Free Shop. You could be crazy if you go to all Duty Free Shop. Myself, I must go to chocolate shop cause it very cheap and a lot of variety.Different with my husband, his fav shop is Cuban Tobacco, well it sell all type of tobacco, pipe and accessories with cheap price.Thing you couldn't find in other KL.
If you driving, you may choose the nearest Jetty Terminal. There are signboards indicating the junctions to get off the highway, after reaching Kedah, look for the sign "Alor Setar Selatan" and "Langkawi". After reaching, Kuala Kedah or Kuala Perlis, you may park your car at the private car park which will cost around RM10-15 per day. Then from Jetty @ Kuala Kedah or Kuala Perlis, you could take ferry. Ferries are running daily every 45 mins (Kuala Perlis) from 7.00am - 7.00pm and if you want to fly, Airasia fly daily to Langkawi and the airport is near to Pantai Cenang.
Pls check Airasia website for daily trip. For your convenience, I may suggest you to rent a car in Langkawi cause public transportation is hard to get and you have to wait for quite long. The best way to travel in langkawi is by car and you can rent daily at the cheap price@ RM40.00 depend to type of cars. My last visit was Viva @RM40.00.
