On my recent trip to Malaysia I was keen to spend some time relaxing on the beach.
Most people book their Langkawi holidays to take advantage of the beautiful beaches, warm weather and shopping. It may seem like a slightly odd thing to be doing on a lovely little island, but in 1987 the Malaysian Government declared Langkawi duty free to boost tourism.

You could easily spend several more days on the island if you were happy to intersperse your activity days with chilling on the beach or around the pool. I arrived at Pantai Cenang – or Cenang Beach – one of the main places to stay in Langkawi.
Here there is a main road lined with shops, bars and restaurants and accommodation.
