Langkawi is such a small tropical paradise with wide beaches, turquoise waters, stunning sunsets and a jungle interior. The island (actually an archipelago of 104 islets, the largest of which is Langkawi, and 5 others are visible only at low tide) lies in the Andaman Sea, off the northwest coast of the Malay Peninsula.
It is a popular holiday travel destination, also among the Malays themselves. Langkawi is a close neighbor of another Malaysian island – Penang, often visited by tourists (they are only about 3 hours away by ferry).
When is the best time to go to Langkawi?
Langkawi is an island with a very favorable location between the Malaysian mainland and Sumatra (Indonesia), thanks to which the weather conditions are quite mild here. It is hot and humid most of the year with occasional rainfall.
Thanks to the relatively stable climate, you can come here basically at any time of the year and get full satisfaction from your vacation, although the months from November to April are the most recommended. You can expect temperatures of 30 to 35 ° C during the day, and around 28 ° C at night.
The peak tourist season in Langkawi is from January to March – the sea is also the calmest then, which is conducive to all water sports and fun.
Between April and August, although there are cloudy skies, rainfall and even thunderstorms, you can also enjoy a dream vacation in Langkawi – rainstorms are usually short-lived, occur in the afternoon and cool down pleasantly. Off-season vacations also mean, as always, smaller crowds and lower prices.
The monsoon season with heavy rainfall falls between September and October. Even in the rainy season on Langkawi, there is no shortage of attractions, so do not be too afraid of them, which we always strongly urge you to do! It rains about 2 hours in the afternoon, and during the day you can enjoy the sun for about 7 hours. The advantages of the rainy season are more pleasant temperatures (approx. 27 ° C) and lush, lush nature, the disadvantage – the sea will be more restless then, which may limit some water activities.
