Sunset at Langkawi Beach Resort

Langkawi beach resort, at about 30 km off the mainland coast of northwestern Malaysia. One of the attractive sites for photographers especially who love sunset and landscape photography. It is a duty-free island (I love this). Popular beaches are Pantai Cenang, Pantai Tengah, Burau Bay, Pantai Kok, and Datai Bay. Pantai Cenang is my favorite beach and strongly recommend for landscape photographers. It is also great for seascape and sunset photography as well. It is a beautiful beach with seemingly unending stretches of fine white sand. Along the beach with the tall coconuts and casuarinas added the fantastic landscape. Pantai Kok is a peaceful and quiet beach with the backdrop of limestone hills.

How to go to Langkawi..

Tourists can reach the island via ferry from Kuala Perlis or by flight from Kuala Lumpur or even from Singapore there is a direct flight(Malaysia Airlines). Air Asia provides budget connections to the island.

The Langkawi International Airport is one of the 7 international airports in Malaysia and connects the island to Kuala Lumpur, Singapore, Penang, Hong Kong, Guangzhou, Phuket and also Subang. On the island, there is only one main road runs through the whole island, so you won't be lost. Rental cars and taxis are available in Langkawi with a very reasonable price. Taxis do not run on meter, but instead drivers charge a flat rate which is quite "standardized" from point to point. It would be better ask the taxi fare before you board.
