My friend Lanot, she went to Langkawi Island last week attended for entrepreneur course at Langkawi under Puteri UMNO. That time I went to KL. I felt jealous for her. Havent gone to Langkawi. Maybe if I got the opportunity I’ll go there also. She gave some of her picture at Langkawi. Really apreciate that.

Langkawi is an archipelago of 99 islands in the Andaman Sea, some 30 km off the mainland coast of northwestern Malaysia. The islands are a part of Malaysia’s Kedah state, but are adjacent to the Thai border. By far the largest of the islands is the eponymous Pulau Langkawi with a population of some 45,000, the only other inhabited island being nearby Pulau Tuba.


The name “Langkawi” is believed to be related to the kingdom of Langkasuka, itself a version of the Malay negari alang-kah suka (“the land of all one’s wishes”), centred in modern-day Kedah. The historical record is sparse, but a Chinese Liang Dynasty record (c. 500 AD) refers to the kingdom of “Langgasu” as being founded in the 1st century AD. ‘Langkawi’ is Asian for Eagle Island, it may be noted, due to the abundance of eagles in the area. In Kuah, its capital, a huge eagle statue can be found.

Langkawi eventually came under the influence of the Sultanate of Kedah, but Kedah was conquered in 1821 by Siam and Langkawi along with it. The Anglo-Siamese Treaty of 1909 transferred power to the British, which held the state until independence, except for a brief period of Thai rule under the Japanese occupation of Malaya during World War II. Thai influences remain visible in the culture and food of Langkawi.
