The exotic paradise island of Langkawi in Malaysia is identified by travel insiders as one of the world’s great nature destinations together with age old old growth rainforest, impressive ancient mountain ranges, and beautiful animals including hornbills, monitor lizards, monkeys and uncommon species for example the colugo.
This tropical isle features a modern-day cable car, a major intercontinental Regatta, a top world bike race as well as a new Four Seasons hotel that seems guaranteed to develop into Asia’s premiere vacation spot.
The interesting news flash is the fact that Langkawi guests have only just obtained entry to the nearby Tarutao National park in Thailand which resembles the paradise used for those peaceful Bounty Bar tv ads with azure waters, white sand beaches and even more. Tarutao is generally only reachable by little watercraft through Satun Isle for several months every year, however a new ferry service via Langkawi will make this specific aquatic paradise open to Langkawi visitors all year round.
The islands of Koh Lipe, Ko Adang, Koh Tarutao along with 50 more that define the Tarutao National recreation area within Thailand are known to divers worldwide as a fantasy destination that’s challenging to gain access to. They give you miles of vibrant coral, white powder sand shorelines, a wide selection of world-class scuba sites and great concentrations of fantastic marine life including whales, whale sharks, manta, migrating whales, turtles plus more.
This amazing world-class underwater play ground is now available year-round to visitors to Langkawi due to a brand new ferryboat service opening 6 May 2005.
