Get off the beaten track in Malaysia
If you are looking for a beautiful holiday destination that enables you to get away from the hustle and bustle of life in the UK, then Malaysia should be at the top of your list.
The Asian country is famous for its vibrant cities and thriving business districts, but the nation also has a far quieter side that quite often goes unnoticed.
Visitors will find it easy to stray from the beaten path, especially those who decide to explore the amazing Langkawi archipelago.
According to Tourism Malaysia, holidaymakers should definitely try out the cable car that scales Mount Mat Cincang - Langkawi's second highest mountain - as this offers some breathtaking panoramic views of the islands.
Not only is the archipelago blessed with a fine selection of five-star luxury hotels, the islands also have plenty of secluded forests that allow visitors to be at one with nature in a peaceful environment.
In fact, only four of the 99 islands are inhabited, so holidaymakers will not have to look too hard for their own little spot away from the rest of the world.
A boat trip around the different islands is also a must for anyone heading to this part of Malaysia.
Of course, as with any trip, the resort you choose to stay in is very important.
Staff at the impressive Four Seasons Resort Langkawi know just what it takes to ensure guests have an unforgettable holiday.
With gorgeous villas, pavilions and landscape gardens, the hotel boasts some of the most breathtaking views in Asia.
Bosses at the resort also recommend taking some time out to explore the mangroves, while those who want to learn even more about Langkawi's ecosystem can embark on a kayaking trip through the Kilim Geopark.
"Spend your time exploring the mangroves and rainforests, bird watching, snorkelling, jungle trekking, golfing and island-hopping. Or just enjoy the equatorial climate and tropical flora and fauna throughout the dramatic landscape," a representative of the hotel advised.
