Langkawi, officially known as Langkawi the Jewel of Kedah is a district and an archipelago of 104 islands in the Andaman Sea, some 30km off the mainland coast of north western Malaysia. The islands are a part of the state of Kedah, which is adjacent to the Thai border.

 The name Langkawi is thought to have existed by the early 15th century, although in the 16th century the island of Langkawi was also marked on maps variously as Langa, Langka, Lansura, and Langapura.

There are many suggestions for the origin of the name of Langkawi. According to one interpretation, Langkawi means island of the reddish-brown eagle, a Brahminy Kite in colloquial Malay. The Malay word for eagle is helang – which is shortened to “lang”, while kawi is the name of a red stone used as a chalk to mark goods. This interpretation was used to create the landmark sculpture of an eagle as the symbol of Langkawi at Dataran Helang (Eagle Square) in Kuah

Langkawi, a cluster of 99 islands separated from mainland Malaysia by the Straits of Malacca, is a district of the state of Kedah in Northern Malaysia and lies approximately 51 km west of Kedah. The total land mass of the islands is 47,848 hectares. The main island spans about 25 km from north to south and slightly more for east and west. The coastal areas consist of flat, alluvial plains punctuated with limestone ridges. The archipelago’s largest island, picturesque villages, paddy fields, craggy mountain peaks, and lush tropical jungles filled with remarkable caves and waterfalls contribute to Langkawi’s dramatic natural beauty. The translucent waters also invite guests to charter a yacht or sailboat to enjoy isolated islands, and endless ocean activities include fishing, snorkelling, diving, sunset cruises, and more. A breathtaking excursion to the renowned Pulau Payar Marine Park yields sheltered waters teeming with marine life. Admire Langkawi’s revered eagles and other wildlife on a cruise along spiritual Kilim Nature Park’s brackish waters amid protected mangroves and limestone rock formations. Two-thirds of the island is dominated by forest-covered mountains, hills and natural vegetation. Numerous trails of various gradients and distance can be laid here. Perfect Hash country.

 On 1 June 2007, Langkawi Island was given a World Geopark status by UNESCO. Three of its main conservation areas in Langkawi Geopark are Machincang Cambrian Geoforest Park, Kilim Karst Geoforest Park and Dayang Bunting Marble Geoforest park (Island of the Pregnant Maiden Lake). These three parks are the most popular tourism area within Langkawi Geopark.

 Tourists can enter the island via ferry from Kuala Kedah, Kuala Perlis and Penang. Or by domestic flight from Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KUL) via Malaysia Airlines, AirAsia, Malindo Air, Rayani Air, or Subang – Sultan Abdul Aziz Shah Airport (SZB) via Malindo Air and Fireflyz providing budget connection to the island. International connection is available from Singapore via Tigerair and AirAsia, as well as from Guangzhou via AirAsia.

 Some of the most popular beaches are Pantai Cenang, Pantai Tengah, Burau Bay, Pantai Kok, and Datai Bay. Pantai Cenang beach has long stretches of fine white sand. It has a number of restaurants and bars for evening entertainment, several hosting live music and for watching the sun set. The beach is lined with tall coconut and casuarina trees. Pantai Tengah is separated from Cenang by a small cape. It also faces the setting sun and has hotels and bars, making it less busy in the evening. Burau Bay, fringed by rocky outcrops, is visited by migratory birds. Pantai Kok a quiet beach has a backdrop of limestone hills. Datai Bay has a combination of forests and sea, its white sandy beach is backed by forest.

 Langkawi is a duty-free island and a shopping paradise. It is the perfect venue for Inter Hash 2020.

 Penang the Pearl of the Orient and areas surrounding this wonderful island will be superb locations to do a few pre & post rambles. Across the border on the Thai side where lots of “activities” happen will be another great location for pre & post rambles.

 A Train Ramble beginning from Singapore to Sg Petani rambling through the entire South to North of the Peninsula making stops at various locations will certainly be organised.

We promise you a great International level hash event, with interesting trails through Tropical Rainforest, fun circles run by experience Circle Masters or RAs, ample golden liquid to quench your thirst, a wide spread of both local and western cuisine and practical freebies to take home. There will be 3 nights of entertainment (Hash acts & professional). It will be value for money, especially if you register now.
