Langkawi comprises 99 islands and is located in the Andaman Sea. It lies in the region of Kedah in Malaysia. Translated from the regional language, Langkawi means ‘reddish brown eagle’. It has a multi-racial society with a population of over 60,000 inhabitants.
Langkawi enjoys an equatorial climate with two major seasons. The dry season, from November to March, has pleasant weather with regular breeze. During the wet season, the precipitation ranges from light showers to heavy downpours accompanied with thunder and lightning.
Historically, Langkawi has a mysterious past of a princess and her curse which supposedly induced the attack by Thais, destroying all settlements in the region. However, the once inactive village now has an active agro-based economic life with rubber and fisheries being the major industries.
