The Pulau Langkawi is one of the well-known tropical islands for Malaysia holidays, because it can easily be reached from Kuala Lumpur, because of the regular and cheap flights. The soft beaches, azure sea, palm trees and numerous great restaurants make this island a truly beautiful destination, where you can take a nice rest from regular life.
The Pulau Payar Marine Park is just next to the island and it is a place where you can enjoy snorkeling and diving trips. The park uses car tires, concrete blocks and boats to create an artificial reef which has become a home for many sea creatures.
Pulau Perhentian – The Perhentian islands are definitely two of the most attractive locations in Malaysia as they offer beautiful white sand beaches, clear water and a wild jungle interior.
