Discover the heritage and lifestyle of Kubang Badak with a traditional wooden boat (Sampan)


Langkawi has been the crossroads of various civilizations. Successive waves of conquest and counter-conquest, trade and commerce have produced an interesting mix of races, religion and lifestyles. Each has left their influences (sometimes large, sometimes small) on the culture and habits of the people of this amazing island.
