Destinations: Langkawi Islands - Malaysia

This archipelago of more than 100 islands (Pulau Langkawi) lies off the north-west coast of Malaysia, up against the Thai border. They are a very popular holiday destination but away from the resorts still have some good forest, with hornbills and woodpeckers, and mudflats and paddy-fields which are good in migration periods. Mangroves, which are best worked on boat-tours, host a fascinating range of birds, fish and other wildlife. White-bellied Sea-Eagle is just one bird which is not hard to find around the coast. Access by plane or ferry from the mainland at Kuala Perlis or Kuala Kedah.
