Malaysia, View of Pulau Langkawi, April 2011
Langkawi is a group of 104 islands in the Andaman Sea, where only Pulau Langkawi and Pulau Tuba are inhabited. Local folklore has it that Langkawi derived its name from the eagle, "helang" or "lang" in Malay language, and from "kawi", meaning reddish brown. Thus Langkawi simply means reddish brown eagle.
There are a number of legends about this pure and tropical island: http://www.langkawi-beaches.com/langkawi-folk-tales.html
They promised us a lot of eagles, but we didn't see them, so I photoshopped an eagle into the picture.
