From Wikipedia :

Langkawi, is the Jewel of Kedah (Malay: Langkawi Permata Kedah) is an archipelago of 99 islands in the Andaman Sea, some 30 km off the mainland coast of northwestern Malaysia.

Langkawi is a duty-free area. The islands are a part of the state of Kedah, which is adjacent to the Thai border. On 15 Jul 2008, Sultan Abdul Halim of Kedah consented to the change of name to Langkawi Permata Kedah in conjunction with his Golden Jubilee Celebration.

1. Langkawi Cable Car and the Langkawi Sky Bridge 

This is an awesome ride on a cable car that has the steepest gradient in the world and taking you to the summit of Mount Mat Cincang over a distance of about 2.1 KM. Throughout the 20-minute ride, you will pass over jungle waterfalls and a thick carpet of virgin rainforest. At the top, The Sky Bridge offers a breathtaking view of Langkawi. The Skybridge is a curved suspension bridge high up in the sky that links the cable car top station with a nearby mountain. It also known as “The Longest Free Span and Curved Bridge In The World.”

2. Dataran Lang

Dataran Lang that is also popular as the Eagle Square is one of the most known manmade attraction in Langkawi. It is a 12 meter-tall sculpture of an eagle with its wings wide open. It is said to be the ideal place for those postcard-perfect holiday photos courtesy its fancy miniature fountains, terraces and bridges. What makes it more important is that it is a mere five -minutes’ walk from other prominent Langkawi attractions, such as Kuah Jetty & Taman Lagenda, and numerous restaurants. 

3. Mahsuri Tomb and Museum

Mahsuri Tomb and Museum is the crypt of the legendary Princess Mahsuri. Also known as the Makam Mahsuri, almost all the natural attractions of the museum have fables attached in true Malay style and Mahsuri’s Tomb is definitely the most famous legend here. Besides, there is a reconstruction of a traditional Malay house i.e. a theatre and a ‘diorama museum.’ Here you can come across some of the Mahsuri’s jewellery as well as the weapons that were used to kill her. There are well at the Tomb where it is believed that the well blesses the people who dip their hands into it.

4. Dayang Bunting Lake

The island is modestly populated on one side and virtually uninhabited on the other where the lake is situated. The legend of Tasik Dayang Bunting goes like this: The favourite bathing pool of a celestial princess named Mambang Sari was said to be Tasik Dayang Bunting (Lake of the Pregnant Maiden). A prince, Mat Teja, fell madly in love with her and tricked her into marrying him. Sadly, their child died from a mysterious illness at the age of seven days. Distraught, the grieving Mambang Sari left the child’s body in the lake and returned to her heavenly abode. Today, some believe that barren women who bathe in this lake will be endowed with a child.

5. Kilim Karst Geoforest Park

Take a boat and explore the Kilim Karst Geoforest Park, an area of more than 100km² that features a breath taking landscape of limestone formations, mangrove forests, caves and beaches. Along the trail, passing through calm winding rivers, you will be exposed to the wonders of the park’s marine ecosystem, flora and fauna and its natural habitats. 
Some tour operators will stop at a special spot along the river where they feed the eagles, found in great numbers here. These include the white- bellied fish eagle, brahminy kite and gigantic sea eagles.
