With natural landscapes, national parks and stunning monuments constituting the whole of Langkawi, one can never get bored in Langkawi. Whether you are here for a day or week, you must not miss out on these top activities in Langkawi -
Head to Eagle Square - one of the most famous spots in Langkawi, Eagle Square is located in the main town of Kuah. It is often referred to as Dataran Lang in Malay.

Check out the quirky cafes and restaurants located in this area.
Explore Galeria Perdana - one of the best activities to do in Langkawi is discovering Galeria Perdana. It is a museum situated in Langkawi. The museum was founded by Dr. Mahatir Mohamad who was Malaysia’s former prime minister. The gifts received by the PM during his tenure in the office are showcased here. A few of the items include Formula One racing cars and vases with Mahatir’s portrait on it.
Visit Mahsuri Tomb and Museum - Langkawi has a history of legends and their tales. One such story is that of Mahsuri, a beautiful woman, who was sentenced to die because others grew jealous of her looks. History has it that Langkawi’s island was then cursed for seven generations. On your visit to the museum, you can easily learn her entire, interesting story. Also, there are several galleries and Mahsuri’s former home located in the middle of the complex.
Enjoy a tour of Kilim Geopark - Langkawi’s forest scape is covered with a huge number of mangrove trees. These trees are believed to have saved the island from natural calamities as well as the tsunami that occurred in 2004. Mangrove forests in Langkawi form an integral part of its ecosystem. Taking a boat tour of the whole area to enjoy its stunning beauty is one of the best adventure activities in Langkawi. On a boating tour, you will come across caves, pools and forest lands. Usually, the tours taken of boat may consume up to 2-3 hours as there are several halts near swamps to give you a chance to explore the area on foot.
Trek to Gunung Raya - Gunung Raya is located at an altitude of 881 meters. It is also the highest peak in the whole of Langkawi. As it the highest point in the city, it serves as a hotspot for hiking. Legend has it that the mountain was cursed by a giant, Mat Raya, during the ancient times. While trekking is a fun activity to do here, it must also be noted that there are steep slopes that might need a guidance from an expert. On your way, you will come across thick jungles where several animals reside.
Take a Cable Car Ride - one of the fun things to do in Langkawi is taking a cable car ride. It is an adventure ride as the slope is steep and the car stops at a midpoint and then continues moving up again. There are stops where you can find cafes and restaurants for refreshment.

Kumari's 2 days trip to LangkawiRather than hotel room every thing good. deepanshi is awesome most of the time she is avilable with your queries ans. Definitely recommend her.
Sumit's 4 days trip to Langkawi4 star hotel with good name was provided on the recommendation of the agent. When we reached hotel they were not ready to provide room before their check in time of 3pm. On the last day hotel power supply outage was there and we had to be without electricity for about 5 hours in the midnight. Really bad experience. Trip was ok, points were ok city tour could have been more.
Prasun's 5 days trip to LangkawiI am quite happy with the trips and all around management of the same. Most of the things were good with few exceptions and that might be because of some lack of knowledge from my side or their side but still overall experience is good. Anjali - with whom we planned our trip was nice, coordinating and humble throughout the trip and even at onsite destination she was regularly in touch. Malaysia local tourist agency was also very professional and supportive. Pick-up, drop, local guiding, behavior, in all spheres they maintained their decency. So on gathering all the points on the scale of 10, I will give them 7.5. Langkawi hotel , Bella Vista, its sea side view and location in the city with all around facilities including Indian restaurant nearby for food gives us good experience there.
