One of the most colourful cities in the world, shaped by its multi-racial population.
A great way to explore the surrounding islands in Langkawi is to hop on a speedboat.
Visit smaller islands like Pulau Dayang Bunting (Island of the Pregnant Maiden), where Gua Langsiar (Cave of the Banshee) and Tasik Dayang Bunting (Lake of the Pregnant Maiden) can be found.
There's also Pulau Singa Besar (Island of the Big Lion) with its extraordinary wildlife sanctuary, flora and rock formations that are reputedly over 500 million years old. Pulau Beras Basah (Island of Wet Rice) has some of the most pristine stretches of beach and crystal-clear waters.
Price From RM64 (adult) RM55 (child), or RM380 to charter a boat for up to eight persons
