Langkawi is an archipelago of 99 islands (or 104 islands at low tide!), located in the Andaman Sea right in northernmost Malaysia. Langkawi isn’t exactly a secret destination, but considering its stunning natural beauty it’s pleasantly surprising that it hasn’t been more developed. There are plenty of options for hotels and restaurants, sure, but without trying too hard you can find a quiet spot in which to relax and take in your surroundings. Pulau Langkawi is the largest of the islands, and the one on which you’re most likely to stay, but take as much time as you can to explore the others. The islands are filled with natural delights to discover, but there are a few you should be sure to see. The Telaga Tujuh Waterfalls certainly fall into this category. There are pools to swim in there, and jungle treks available around the falls. To get the best possible view of the archipelago, be sure to check out the Langkawi Cable Car. It takes you up a 700m hill, and on a clear day you can see the ocean and islands for miles around.
