Nature-Lover’s Paradise: Langkawi, Malaysia

34 of 51

This cluster of 99 islands off Malaysia’s northwestern coast is a relative neophyte when it comes to tourism. Most of the main island remains a nature-lover’s paradise, swathed in mangrove and tropical rain forests, and it was recently designated a UNESCO Geopark—the first in Southeast Asia. Much of Langkawi retains its traditional charm, on view in Pantai Cenang at the Bon Ton Resort, a small village of formerly dilapidated Malay wooden houses transformed into stylish lodgings by hotelier Narelle McMurtrie. Doubles from $150. (450 MYR = $135 1/2010)
