Eagle Square

Eagle Square (Dataran Lang) is located in Kuah, the major city of the archipelago. Its most important feature is the giant statue of an eagle (hence the name Eagle Square). It is said in local folklore that the name of the archipelago comes from the Malay words 'helang' (shortened to 'lang'), meaning 'eagle' and 'kawi', meaning reddish-brown.

Do & See

Langkawi has much to offer to all kinds of travellers, but it's well worth a visit mostly for its natural attractions: from tropical beaches like Pantai Cenang to nature reserves such as the Kilim Karst Geoforest Park; from the breathtaking vista on top of the Sky Bridge to the fun and unique experience of the Pulau Payar Marine Park.
