Malaysia Sailing Expedition

About Malaysia

 Located in Southeast Asia just above the Equator, Malaysia’s distinctive cultural mix of people mirrors its unique geography. The country is split into two halves: Malaysia occupies the southern half of the Malay Peninsula, and across the South China Sea lie the East Malaysian states of Sarawak and Saba.

The Langkawi archipelago sits off Malaysia’s northwest coast, in the Andaman Sea. This cluster of islands offers plenty of protected anchorages in all wind and sea conditions, and their northern beaches and bays are among the finest in the world. Langkawi is a gorgeous cruising area, featuring high cliffs and hundreds of potential excursions. Swim in a freshwater lake, or visit the wildlife sanctuary to see sea eagles and monkeys. The islands of Langkawi will serve as your gateway to unspoiled paradise and an unforgettable sailing adventure.
