Langkawi is like a playground for families, what can't you do there? If you don't have a fear of heights, then you should start with a trip up the SkyCab cable car that will take you up to the viewing station on the Machincang mountain. You get the option of taking a regular cable car or one with a glass bottom! From the viewing station, you can walk over to the SkyBridge, where the bridge is the curviest one in the world and straddles between two valleys with a view of the sea and the pregnant maiden mountains.

The floor of the bridge also has glass sections where tourist can stand and look down at the dramatic 700-meter drop below them into the jungle canopy! If heights aren't your thing, then you can choose between any and all the water sports available on the coasts of Langkawi. From jet skiing to parasailing and scuba diving, your entire holiday could be easily spent and used up at the beach.

If you're looking for the season of clear blue skies in Malaysia, book between January and March. But be warned - this high season will see a lot of school kids as the local schools will be on break, and a lot of regional tourists from countries nearby (like China, Singapore, etc).

The mid-season is between April to August, where there will be a little rain and more international tourists from the GCC visiting. The rainy season that most tourists avoid is between September to December, but the good thing is that most hotels will have more affordable prices during this time if you don't mind a little rain!

Langkawi is not all beaches and mountains! The island is also home to some modern shopping complexes too, and shopaholics can start their shopping as soon as they land their flight to Langkawi at the Teow Soon Huat Duty-Free at the Langkawi International Airport on Jalan Padang Matsirat before making their way to the ultra-modern Cenang Mall on Jalan Pantai Cenang.

For shopping in more touristy areas, you've got the Langkawi Geopark Enterprise at the Oriental village or the Zon Shopping Paradise in Pantai Cenang.
