The legendary Langkawi Islands is a group of 99 oceanic islands located 22 to 54 kilometers off Perlis Coast. The Islands are very popular tourist destinations and had hosted many international events recently. Administratively, Langkawi is under the state of Kedah. The Islands have been noted for their excellent fishing, clear blue waters, beaches and stunning landscapes.
As part of a recent trip to West Malaysia with my dad, I decided to return to Langkawi for 4 days as my last visit had not included any serious birding. I had been in contact withJunglewalla about the possibility of seeing some of the rarer bird types on the island.
