A must thing to do when you visit Langkawi Island is photo shooting with sculpture of an eagle at Eagle Square (Dataran Lang). It is the significant landmark that every tourist need to visit and should not miss. Langkawi Island offers the local legend which combination of cultural and natural attractions. It is a great idea to discover the outdoors. The real beauty of the clear blue sky and the sea is amazing. You might be scared of the height while taking the cable car to the top of hill.
