Some of the best things you should consider doing in Langkawi

A holiday in Langkawi

It is a perfect destination for tourists who want to enjoy some island-living experience. It is located on a Malaysian island called Penang. The laid back atmosphere, breath taking scenery, and beaches on the island makes it one of the most popular tourist destinations in Malaysia. Langkawi is a small island, but there are a lot of things you can do there when you visit. There is a wide range of accommodation facilities in the island. Low budget guest rooms are mainly located in the Pentai Cenang Beach while luxurious facilities are found in different parts of the island.

Most tourists prefer visiting the island between December and March as the temperatures are around 30 degrees. As December is almost approaching, be sure to check out cheap flights from Singapore to Langkawi. One of the main challenges for tourists on the island is the lack of an established public transport system. Therefore, some of the transport options for you include hiring a motorbike, a taxi, or your private car. Langkawi is one of the few tourist destinations in the world that have a duty-free status, and this allows tourists to have an amazing shopping experience while on the island. Here is a list of things you should consider doing as you tour around Langkawi:

1. Ride the Langkawi Cable Car
