Langkawi, an archipelago of 104 islands in the Andaman Sea 30km off of mainland Malaysia. Know for its clear waters, pristine beaches, jungles, diving and snorkelling, it is the perfect tropical retreat. Out of the 104 islands it is by far the biggest and also the only one inhabited but there are plenty of boat trips offering you the chance to get out an explore the surrounding islands. I had heard many mixed reviews about Langkawi, the main complaint being how touristy it was, but lets face it, the reason it is so ‘touristy’ is because of how insanely beautiful it is, so yeah why wouldn’t people want to go?! I personally didn’t think it was even that bad and if you look past all the touristy parts you can see the island for what it really is – paradise.
