Langkawi an archipelago of many islands has been quite popular with the Indian travellers especially for weddings and honeymoons. Most of the holiday resorts are connected to the dazzling sandy beaches which offer a choice between spending the day shining peacefully under the sun or enjoying the water sports and activities at the beach. Honeymooners can sunbathe, relax or enjoy a swim on the beaches like Pantai Cenang and Pantai Tengah at the south west coast and Pantai Kok in the west. While Pantai Kok facades a beautiful bay surrounded by heavily forested mountains with limestone caves, those looking for a more upscale affair can head to the sandy strips of Tanjung Rhu and Datai Bay. Along with serenity and calmness, couples can also have a fun-filled afternoon, snorkeling, diving, Kayaking or trekking in the luscious green forests.
Nature enthusiasts can trek through the Gurung Raya forest reserves and cloak themselves with the beauty of the flora and fauna and the amazing animal and bird life of the rainforest. Couples can also enjoy some quality time together on a refreshing walk through the Kilim Nature Park with its green mangrove forests.
So in 2017, if there is a place to be, it’s Langkawi.
