An archipelago of 104 islands, Langkawi is tailor-made for adventurous holidays, filled with exploration and relaxation.
Start off your visit on the 6th (Mon): kick back and relax at Cenang Beach and then zoom along the surf with a waterskiing or jet-skiing adventure. Here are some ideas for day two: kick your exploration up a notch at some of the top local zipline courses and adventure parks and then snap pictures at Langkawi Sky Bridge.

Plan my Langkawi trip by asking Inspirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

Doha, Qatar to Langkawi is an approximately 13-hour flight. The time zone difference moving from Arabian Standard Time to Malaysia Time is 5 hours. Prepare for somewhat warmer weather when traveling from Doha in December: high temperatures in Langkawi hover around 36°C and lows are around 29°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 7th (Tue) early enough to fly to Kuala Lumpur.

Garden City of Lights

A holiday in Kuala Lumpur, a modern metropolis and capital of Malaysia, reveals a place where colonial influences, Asian traditions, and modern aesthetics come together in urban architecture and street layout.
Family-friendly places like Petronas Twin Towers and Sunway Lagoon will thrill your kids. There's lots more to do: Head underground at Batu Caves, stroll around KLCC Park, explore and take pictures at Central Market Kuala Lumpur, and take in panoramic vistas at Menara Kuala Lumpur.

You can fly from Langkawi to Kuala Lumpur in 3 hours. Alternatively, you can do a combination of ferry, bus, and train; or do a combination of ferry and bus. In December, plan for daily highs up to 37°C, and evening lows to 28°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 10th (Fri) to allow enough time to fly back home.

An unusual blend of a developing nation and the modern world, Malaysia ranks as one of the richest countries in Southeast Asia, its prosperity largely resting on thriving high-tech industries. Malaysia vacations remain a more affordable alternative to the expensive tourism in some neighboring countries. Take a trip to Malaysia to explore busy cities filled with colonial-era architecture, tranquil tea plantations supporting a large portion of the local population, and dozens of scattered islands happily evading the worst aspects of mass tourism. While there may be fewer visitors, there's no shortage of fine beaches, mangrove estuaries, and verdant rainforests filled with exotic wildlife.
