FAQ

Why this trip?

Atma Alam Batik Art Village is a batik centre designed primarily to attract tourists and to promote the art of batik in Langkawi. Located in Padang Matsirat, owners Aza Osman, an oil painter, and Roshadah Yusof, a batik artist, designed the half-acre centre as a place to showcase the creative spirit of batik. The centre is divided into several sections: there is a showroom, workshop, art and batik gallery and handicraft display primarily displaying works by local artists. Also a great place to unleash your kids’ creativity, the centre hosts art classes where students learn to turn plain white fabric into beautiful art pieces with batik prints.

Mashuri's Tomb also known as Makam Mahsuri is one of the very few that does have deep connection with the historical roots of the island and believed to be true by all locals. Over time several versions of the legend have developed, but the core of the story has remained the same and all agree that Mahsuri was then the most beautiful woman of the island. She was born in Langkawi after her Thai parents immigrated to the island from Phuket in late 18th century for better leaving. Most accounts say that she was born in a farmers family while few claim that she was a princess.

Besides, Eagle Square as known as Dataran Lang is one of Langkawi’s best known manmade attractions, a large sculpture of an eagle poised to take flight. A sight that greets visitors to the island via ferry, the 12 metre-tall statue is one of the island’s most instantly recognizable monuments. Next, there is a shopping centre in Kuah Town just nearby to the Eagle Square that you can grab the local products and souvenirs before the tour end.
