Langkawi: What to see and do
Taking its inspiration from both the earth and skies, the name ‘Langkawi’ is commonly thought to have arisen due to the profusion of Lang Merah eagles on the island, along with the abundance of marble – kawi in Sanskrit – found within its confines. Having come under both British and Thai rule during its lifetime, the influences of the latter remain apparent in both the local culture, and the cuisine that feeds it. The post-war era saw an influx of pirate activity, with the archipelago’s dense foliage providing nooks and crannies with which to seek refuge.
Legs aside, wanderers traverse the circumference of the island via bicycles, taxis, rented cars, and the occasional water buffalo – emblematic of the idyllic village life that juxtaposes itself against the urban façade of tourist-laden sites. Shopping malls abound in Kuah, amongst other destinations, with the establishment of Langkawi’s duty-free status in 1987.
Cable car rides proffer a glimpse of murky jungles and cascading waterfalls like the Telaga Tujuh in Gunung Mat Cincang, along with the chance to observe a menagerie of flora and fauna within the confines of the UNESCO-declared Geopark, where Palaeozoic sedimentary sequences reveal themselves amongst the agglomeration of mangroves, tidal flats, and estuaries.
Amateur historians revel in the Makam Mahsuri, the tomb of a maiden who cursed the island for seven generations after being executed for infidelity. Evidence of the malediction is said to lie in Padang Matsirat, where burnt grains of rice still reside almost two hundred years after angry villagers led a revolt against the Siamese. Less malicious locales allure from afar; waves ebbing like a heartbeat against the dazzling sands of Pantai Cenang, Pantai Kok, and Pantai Tengah.
