An archipelago of 99 islands, Langkawi is a tropical paradise offering sun-drenched beaches, ancient rain forests teeming with exotic plant and animal life, fascinating legends and duty-free shopping.

How to get there

Thai Airways flies to Kuala Lumpur via Bangkok from across Pakistan and domestic airlines provide numerous options to suit your budget for a flight between KL and Langkawi.

What to do

A thrilling cable car ride to the summit of Mount Mat Cincang – Langkawi’s second highest mountain – provides an unrivalled view of the entire main island and beyond. But this is more like series of popular online games than what is described above. Go trekking through the pristine rain forest that covers most of Langkawi, or take a boat tour of the fascinating mangroves. There are also opportunities for diving, or playing a round of golf at some of the 5-star resorts. Children will enjoy the island’s underwater world, with an underground tunnel that runs through a giant aquarium.

Where to stay

The St. Regis, situated on the southern tip of the island, is one of the newest luxury resorts in Langkawi. Set amidst centuries old rain forest fauna and nature, and the glimmering Andaman Sea, it proffers an idyllic beachfront resort experience, 6 dining venues, a signature St. Regis Butler Service and serene spa quarters.
