Jewel of Kedah
Langkawi District, an archipelago of 99 islands off the coast of the mainland, supports tourism with spas, bars, and cable cars, but it also maintains protected areas rich in native wildlife and culture--so the cluster of islands offers escape and entertainment in equal measure. Trek across the protected mangrove forests to see the richness of plant and animal life that live there. Or learn of the legends of the islands on guided tours, which offer mystery and nature in abundance. Beaches and lagoons draw tourists for their dive and snorkeling experiences.
