Langkawi is an ancient group of islands located on the northwestern shore of Peninsular Malaysia. Captive imaginations are brought forth by the island's rich heritage of myths and legends that permeates from her existence. The exact location is at the site where the Straits of Malacca meets the waters of the Andaman Seas. Langkawi is coined from the Malay words Lang and Kawi. Lang is a brown eagle and Kawi is a local manganese stone. This island is unique in the sense that it has so many legends and myths associated with it. Langkawi Island is therefore also called Pulau Lagenda or Legendary Island. Other than the islands surrounding it Langkawi also has many other tourist attractions such as, batik arts village, air hangat village, eagle square, cable car, lagenda park and many more.
