After pickup from your hotel in the evening, head to Kuah Town, located on the southeastern tip of Langkawi Island. Learn from your guide about its legendary Malay name, Pekan Kuah, and make a stop at Dataran Lang, or Eagle Square, a well-known attraction.
Snap photos of the imposing eagle statue — a symbol of Langkawi, whose name is said to originate from the words ‘Helang’ (meaning eagle) and “Kawi” (meaning reddish brown). Sit on a nearby bench to watch the sunset on Kuah Bay, the major transit point for ferries from the mainland and Penang.
With its status as a duty-free zone, Kuah’s collection of shops offer an extensive array of items such as liquor, tobacco, chocolates and imported household goods at unbeatable prices. After you indulge in a shopping spree, your guide drops you off at your hotel.
