Dataran Lang, Langkawi

2.7
#2 of 8 in Sightseeing in Langkawi
Landmark Tourist Spot
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.

  • Just came here to take the photos with the iconic eagle to prove that i have been here in langkawi~ apart from that, nothing to see & do. Dataran Lang is like a landmark~  more »
  • Katanya belum kesini kalo belum ke dataran lang, coba pergi di malam hari, patung elangnya lebih keliatan gagah dan cantik  more »
  • It's definitely worth a look. Although with such heat, we only really walked up, took the photo and left. I felt like Chevy Chase at the grand canyon!!  more »

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.
