Langkawi Island “The Jewel of Kedah”
Langkawi Islands is an archipelago with a cluster of 140 small islands. Geographically, it is located off Malaysia’s west coast. Administratively it is a part of the District of Kedah. Amongst hundreds of small islands, only a few are inhabited. And Langkawi Island is the biggest and the most beautiful island.
Historically, there are many interpretations of the name Langkawi. Some believe that Langkawi originates from Malay word “Lang” or “Helang” which means Eagle. Therefore, the region has a landmark sculpture head of a red eagle. Historically, it is said that Langkawi has relation to the Langkasuka Kingdom. In Sankrit, “Langka” means beautiful, while “Wi” means many. So Langkawi means Many Beautiful Islands. According to the meaning of its name, Langkawi Island is indeed a charming island. Therefore, it deserves to bestow a title “the Jewel of Keddah”. It owns crystal blue sea, the best diving site, great marine ecosystem and wonderful paddies panorama.
