Langkawi Island’s landscape is painted with marbled mountains, vast paddy fields and rural villages, miles of white sandy beaches, secret caves, and pockets of virgin rainforests dating back millions of years.
Visitors to Langkawi may be caught off-guard by its rusticity and slow pace of life. Most of its inhabitants still retain their traditional ways of living – fishing and cultivating their hard-earned harvest from the ground. Old Langkawi was characterised by padi (rice) fields and kampung (village) style living, a laidback atmosphere, bullock carts and dirt roads. Tourism is the main industry for the people of Langkawi and has been for the past decade or so, The sea remains a healthy source of income for local fishermen. In pockets of local fishing communities one can still find the age-old cottage industry of harvesting, drying and processing of sea cucumbers into a balsamic oil (gamat) for all sorts of minor ailment.
Langkawi today boasts modern amenities and infrastructure while still retaining its traditional values. World class resorts and golf courses have been built alongside more traditional rest houses. Direct flights, a new Marina and fast ferry services have improved communications, making the island one of Malaysia’s premier destinations.
