The main island of the archipelago of the same name, Langkawi is a short flight from Kuala Lumpur or Singapore, making it great for a beach break within easy reach of the city. You could even build it into a stop-over en route to Australia or New Zealand, although you need at least a week to do it justice. The most famous sight is the curved SkyBridge with its mountain, rainforest and sea views, but there’s plenty of fun to be had on the water too, and exotic wildlife aplenty to discover.
