Dataran Lang, Langkawi

(3.2/5 based on 800+ reviews on the web)
Visit Dataran Lang, an iconic public space dominated by a 12 m (39 ft) statue of an eagle. Poised to take flight, the massive bird serves as the symbol of the island, which gets its name from the old Malay word for "eagle." The mountains across the bay, above which the eagle is ready to soar, and the shimmering waters in which it feeds, neatly frame the large statue. The central area features decent eateries, but beware of exhorbitant prices at the gift shop. Put Dataran Lang at the forefront of your travel plans using our Langkawi itinerary builder.

  • The big eagle photo is a mandatory for people visiting langkawi. Its a huge huge eagle .. make sure to carry a camera with a big lens to capture .. try visiting during sunset it is magnificent. It tak...  more »
  • 在古马来语中,“LANG”-鹰,“KAWI”-红褐色,所以在兰卡威就有了这个地标。在巨鹰广场旁边就是码头,可以去丽贝岛,另外,不远的地方还有一家比较大的商场。 
  • 如果你對巨鷹這個地標没有興趣, 最好不要來, 因為除了這個巨鷹像, 真的没有要來的意義, 不論什麼是間都有很多人在這裏, 想要找好位置拍照要花點時間

  • My last visit to Dataran Lang was Jan 2014 and it has gone some transformation and look a lot better now. This time they were doing some renovation and maintenance works in the whole area. Not much activity you could do here, just selfies here and there :) There were few shops selling souvenirs. It was Monday afternoon and not many visitors around. Parking was quite easy since I just parked my car in a paid car park nearby and very close to Kuah Jetty for a 50 sen an hour. It was a 5 min walk to the Dataran. You have an option of using coupon for parking along the road in the area.
  • I hate places that have lots of people but let's drop that. This place is very good, a very exciting place for those that likes to take pictures. Also, it's a walk away to fast food restaurants such as KFC and McDonald's.
  • On going construction work including some upgrading work which seems to move at the speed of molasses. They've blocked the passage towards the front of the Eagle monument which cancels all hope of getting a great photo.
  • Beautiful structure and what a great location to placed this sculpture and this bay
  • Datang Ke Langkawi mesti la kenalah bergambar kat sini... Ikon Langkawi kutt......
