[ holiday stop: langkawi ]

IF YOU are looking for a romantic beach vacation in an area of natural, unspoiled beauty, Langkawi could be the place.

Langkawi {meaning reddish brown eagle} is a cluster of 99 islands off the mainland of Malaysia. Only 4 of the islands are inhabited. Traditionally thought to be cursed, in 1986 the Prime Minister decided to transform it into a tourist resort area.

It was a lovely place to take in the gorgeous views and beaches, with the feel of a completely authentic Malay experience ~ not built up like a typical tourist area.

Of course I had to pick up a memento and this is what I got...

...some traditional handcarved wooden sandals {perhaps not the most comfortable shoes I own, but they'll look cute displayed in a shadow box}.

Next stop: Phuket, Thailand

Wow, Lisa! I'm so glad you're showing us all these awesome places. What a great idea the PM had to use this beautiful space for the rest of the world to see. Enjoy. Looking forward to seeing Phuket tomorrow.
