  1. Langkawi, unlike Phuket Island and Penang’s coast is not as commercialised , giving you a lot of breathing space. You can be the only one in the beach during the day.
    I understand that one could easily take up retirement there. Recent seminar was held in HK to encourage people to go there for retirement.

  2. In Malaysia, there is a second home retirement scheme which gives you entitlement to residency status. Not sure whether you can actually buy property in Langkawi if you are not a local. In any case, you can only sell in the secondary market and difficult to get your money out of Malaysia.

  3. You have a definite talent for photography. The exposure compensation for the white sand beach shot was nearly perfect. Not very many photographers have an adequate understainding on how to compensate as was required to get the most out of this scene.

  4. Thanks for stopping by my blog! These are all excellent photos and if I had the money to travel so far, I’d go there for a visit on the strength of your photos alone. Those are some of the cleanest and most beautiful beaches I’ve ever seen.

  5. It certainly looks idyllic. I would love to see some of Thailand and the Far East, but as you saw today, have to focus a bit nearer home. (I can hardly complain, can I?) Tavira Island is a sand spit so I’m well used to sandbars. Thanks for your visit.

    • This island has always lured us back. Driving around is easy and that gives us the opportunity of viewing many beautiful places dotted around the island.

    • Thanks for the “Like” on the post! As a non-native English speaker, actually, I did look up in the dictionary to make sure it is the word.

  6. I’d never heard of Langkawi! It looks fabulous… I went to Thailand last year – Bangkok, which is amazing, I loved it there – & Phuket, which is beautiful, I loved it too, especially out of season when there weren’t many tourists there xd

    Thanks for reading my travel blog :)

    • You need a flight or a ferry trip to Langkawi. Langkawi’s beach is ranked one of the top 10 beaches in the world. Unfortunately, I am not on Twitter or Instagram. Thanks for stopping by my blog and liking it!

  7. wow! You have really captured the beauty of Langkawi!! One of the best beaches and islands we have. I have never written about my own country as much maybe because I when I started blogging, I have already moved away.

    Have you been to Perhentian, Redang, Tioman or East Malaysia?

  8. I totally agree with you.. Langkawi is beautiful.. it has an extra ordinary attraction within.. whic drags people to revist t small island. in our recent visit we stayed in TAJ REBAK ISLAND RESORT, I donno if it is a 5 star resort, but its one of its kind, very near to langkawi airport, the resort itself is in an island and its so beautiful ,calm and peaceful with warm friendly staff. I would highly recommend the place. check it out..!!

  9. I got stung by a jellyfish (on my forearm) when I was in Langkawi and it made me nervous to go back in the water. It really hurt! But it’s otherwise a beautiful place and I look forward to returning (my partner is from Malaysia and we go back there every few years to visit family)
