The majestic spot in Langkawi is obviously the Telaga Tujuh waterfalls. These stunning natural clear blue waters pouring down the hills, bring all the freshness to the skin. It is located in the northwest corner of the Island and made up of a series of natural pools.

Looking for quintessential holiday relaxation spot, you definitely cannot miss afternoon sunbathing in Langkawi beaches. We recommend you go to Pantai Cenang or Pantai Tengah Beach if you love secluded and secluded beach. Astonishing sunset and sunrise views when captured with own eyes and camera is totally different feelings. I bet everyone who have seen the best sunset ever in their life would think it is priceless and wanted to look at the beautiful view every single day. However, it is not always the same. It is still beautiful but in different landscape. It is endless. Thereafter, not to be forgotten, the Black Sand Beach near the Tanjung Rhu beach. It is named after the sand colour of black and white formed through the trickling of a nearby hot spring. Locals said that it is a cursed island from a mermaid that mad at a fisherman who stole her ring. It is a peaceful retreat from the crowded islands. Another stop point is the Kilim Mangrove Forest, one of a great touristic spots in Langkawi to naturally sight symbiotic relationship between mankind and nature. Watching sunset while dining at floating restaurant is the best feeling one has ever had. This place is close to hugging nature and bring it to your pocket. There is more than what meet the eyes in Kilim Forest, the green and wild trees with abundance of habitats is what made it specialty. Kayaking in the calm water while mesmerising the picturesque view of eagles, lizards and macaques would definitely make your heart soar for more.

Pulau Tuba is another island that rare but quite famous in Langkawi. It is island inside the island. It is far from Kuah Town which made all the wild habitats live freely in the island. The quiet village will soothe your anxiety and soul as you take a step exploring what is inside the island. Do not forget to bring binocular when coming to this island as you may spot rare birds. It is cost not more than 5 dollars to go to Pulau Tuba from Kuah Jetty. Another magnificent place is Dayang Bunting, connected just by a bridge, this place has a story to tell. It is translated in English as a pregnant lady. Dayang Bunting was once a home to a beautiful princess named Mambang Sari. She lost her child after only one week the baby was born. To honour her, a lake was dedicated to her, and it is the second largest island of Langkawi. While at Langkawi, make sure to go to Durian Perangin as backpackers and enjoy the view of 14 tier amazing waterfall glides down from the top. Carry its name, this forest has a lot of durian tree which will gives breath-taking sight in rainy weather. If you love durian, this is the must-visited place in Langkawi, situated near the Kilim village.
