Langkawi

With some of the oldest rock formations and rainforests on the planet, Langkawi’s historical significance and geological diversity make it a holiday destination unlike any other. From a sky-high bridge overlooking the lush jungle, to the depths of the Andaman Sea filled with stunning caves and a bounty of fish, every inch of Langkawi offers incredible adventures.

With diving and eco-tours at the forefront of Langkawi holidays, it’s clear that Langkawi’s natural playground is the main attraction. Whether trekking through the jungle, observing the breath-taking views, participating in a cultural exchange program or just lounging on the beach, there is so much to see and do.

The weather in Langkawi is almost always hot and humid. Lightweight, casual clothing is ideal, as is a pair of comfortable walking shoes and sandals. A light raincoat or umbrella is great to keep around during the rainy season, although these can also be purchased in town.

With a majority of time spent on the beach, in the water and exploring the diverse terrain, be sure to pack plenty of sunblock, a hat and sunglasses. Small first aid kits are always beneficial. Include anti-diarrhoea medication, pain relief, antibacterial cream, water purification tablets, rehydrating solutions Insect repellent and mosquito nets are highly recommended.

Stunning landscapes and incredibly rich waters make for ideal diving and snorkelling excursions. Therefore, it may be wise to bring snorkel gear. A small torch and pocket knife are also great to have on-hand. Try to take out as much cash as possible beforehand, as there are few ATM’s on the island, and they can run out of money.

  • Capital – Langkawi is part of Malaysia. The largest town and city centre is on the Langkawi main island
  • Currency – Malaysian Ringgit
  • Language – Bahasa Malaysia (Malaysian) is the official language and English is widely spoken
  • Time Zone – GMT + 8 hours

Situated near the equator, Langkawi experiences a tropical climate that is consistently hot and humid throughout the year. Due to its location in the Malaccan Straits of the north-western coast of the Peninsular Malaysia, Langkawi does not experience extreme climate changes that other islands in the Andaman Sea are susceptible to.

Langkawi has two distinct seasons, the dry and the rainy. January to April marks the dry season and high tourist season. The temperature averages 30°C during the day and 28°C at night. The pleasant weather and relatively little rainfall provide the perfect conditions for exploring the island and surrounding waters.

The rainy season usually begins in September and can last into early December. During this time, storms are unpredictable, causing some rougher waters and winds. The average daytime temperatures are about 26°C and intermittent showers allow for some sunshine.
