Cruises from Langkawi
Pulau Langkawi, the largest of 99 islands collectively known by the same name, is situated off the NW coast of the Malaysian Peninsula. Since being made a duty-free port in 1987, shopping here is cheaper than anywhere else in Malaysia. Yes, this delightful island's economy is primarily based on tourism. Be sure to take the opportunity of riding the cable car from the Oriental Village, and be astounded at the world class Langkawi Skybridge clinging to a 700m high mountain ridge.
The 125m long pedestrian bridge offers incredible views of the Andaman Sea.
