    This museum is not so far from Kuah, if you go to the North. If you are traveling on a bike or a car that does not pass by, it is located along the road. There is free parking on site. This is actually a complex of buildings United transitions and here you can see anything from a sailboat and machines to the Soviet dagger. You name it, a lot are really works of art, there is a simple protocol gifts. Describe it's pointless, because there is all. Particularly impress vases and utensils work fine, Japanese dolls and bladed weapons. Here is something interesting for yourself and find any child and adult. To explore all this needs a few hours, although after a while you start to get tired of all this splendour. But all the sooner you pass all the territory. The Museum is open from 9 to 17.

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.
