Hello friends in TE.

The whisper of legend can be heard everywhere in Langkawi: in the majestic trees of the 450-million year old rainforest; in the misty caves and hilltops; in the lapping waters of waterfalls, deep lakes and rivers; in the villages of fishermen and rice farmers; and in the turquoise ocean where it meets the white sands of the many beaches.

Many travelers come to Langkawi drawn by tales of its beauty and charm. However as any visitor will soon learn, the island is animated with tales of a different kind. Legendary narratives, filled with heroic deeds and mystical creatures, abound on the island. Some of these legends are now as familiar as the crashing of the waves on the shore, while others remain known to only a few. As they were verbally passed down through the ages, the tales picked up the spirit of their orators and twists along the way, with the result that there are many different versions of the most popular legends in existence today. Some of the most famous legends are bound to hear them told to you in more color when you visit these and the other mystical places on the island yourself.
