Dataran Lang, Langkawi

2.7
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.

  • In the vicinity of the ferry pier, it's not an international traffic pier. It seems like the only way to get to the airport is to take a taxi. The Old Eagle statue is big and beautiful.

Where to stay in Langkawi

Langkawi Island offers by far the greatest number of accommodation options out of all 104 isles in the archipelago. Look for affordable and comfortable rooms in Kuah and the southwestern peninsula, where inexpensive hotels, hostels, and rental apartments draw many budget visitors. For a luxury experience, head to the surrounding islands, where private resorts charge high prices for more amenities and larger rooms.
