Langkawi, Kedah, Malaysia

What Lonely Planet said: Langkawi is synonymous with ‘tropical paradise’ – and with good reason. Since 2008 the archipelago’s official title has been Langkawi Permata Kedah (Langkawi, the Jewel of Kedah), no doubt inspired by the island’s clear waters, relatively pristine beaches and intact jungle.

I was there: August 10 - 12, 2013

Camera used: Canon EOS 40D, Samsung Galaxy Note
