main island of Malaysia is known as Pulau Langkawi and 40,000
people live there, mainly Malay. The island is popular as a tourist
destination with some excellent beaches.
Langkawi enjoys a vast array of culinary delights, made up
of Malay, Thai, Chinese and Indian cuisine. Fish features
on every menu as does the exotic fruit. As well as fresh coconuts
year round and plenty of Starfruit, there's the soft, sweet
Ciku, the Pomelo (Jerunga) Jackfruit, Rambutan and the Mangosteen.
The Spiky green Durian fruit which looks nasty, smells horrible
but tastes delicious is a national favourite, perhaps not
least because of its powerful aphrodisiac qualities.
As Langkawi is a duty free island this is an ideal place to
stock up on goods. Good value souvenirs include Silks and
Malaysia offer all the types of yacht
charter such as bareboat
crewed yacht charter, catamaran, sailboat, motoryacht and
luxury yachts charter.
With its 100 surrounding islands Langkawi is a paradise that longs to be discovered. Tourism has soared in recent years. Only 4 of the islands are inhabited. If you are looking for an idyllic isolated experience these are the perfect cruising grounds for you. Langkawi is a small place and relatively new to tourism. To show respect for the Muslim faith we recommend that when in town you dress modestly and leave skimpy clothing for the beaches and when on board !
