If you haven’t heard much about Langkawi, you soon will. Situated in the Andaman Sea off the coast of mainland Malaysia, this erstwhile under-the-radar archipelago of 99 islands is making quite a splash. Rich in exotic wildlife and fringed by white-sand beaches, the islands are the idyllic reality of the romantic notion of a tropical getaway. Langkawi Island is the only isle in the archipelago with any significant human population and settlement, welcoming visitors with forest-covered mountains, verdant rice paddies, hidden lagoons and limestone escarpments. In fact, the island’s natural wonders have earned Langkawi a UNESCO World Geopark designation.  This is a cosmopolitan hotspot as well, with trendy eateries and duty-free status making Langkawi a shoppers’ and diners’ paradise.
