Langkawi Local History

Langkawi an olden day pirate hideout consisting of many islets close to each other. Langkawi is the 'Isles of Legends', off the coast of Kuala Perlis.Sigh over the sad legend of the pure princess Mahsuri and view her burial site. The flawless white beaches are the legacy of the pure white blood of Mahsuri. For the pragmatic: another great attraction of the island is its 'Duty Free' status.
