Riau Islands & Langkawi Islands Place to Visit Indonesia

The Riau Islands (Indonesian: Kepulauan Riau) is a province of Indonesia.

It comprises a total of 1,796 islands lying between the Malacca Strait, the Karimata Strait and the South China Sea. The province is located on one of the world’s busiest shipping lanes, sharing water borders with Singapore, Malaysia, and Vietnam.

Originally part of the province of Riau, the Riau Islands became Indonesia’s third-youngest province in September 2002. The capital is Tanjung Pinang and the largest city is Batam.

The native inhabitant of the Riau Islands, called Orang Laut, formed the backbone of most Malay kingdoms from Srivijaya to the Johor Sultanate for the control of trade routes going through the Malacca Strait.

After the fall of Malacca in 1511, the Riau islands became the centre of political power of the mighty Sultanate of Johor-Riau, based on Bintan Island, and were for long considered the centre of Malay culture.

Langkawi, is the largest island of the homonymous Malaysian archipelago. Stunning landscapes, dense forests, waterfalls, villages and pristine beaches make one of the most enchanting islands of the Indian Ocean.

Cenang beach is the main village beach, Tanjung Rhu and Datai Bay are the most beautiful and secluded. The Kilim Karst Geoforest Park is a complex ecosystem, where a dense mangrove forest grows around gigantic limestone rocks formations along a river bed, formed some 500 million years back.

It is renowned for its astounding sceneries, caves and wildlife, that make a must-see geological, biological and cultural site. Not to be missed a cable car ride from from the Oriental Village at Teluk Burau to the peak of Gunung Machinchang, which is also the location of the Langkawi Sky Bridge, a curved pedestrian cable-stayed bridge: the wiews over the forest, sea and the islands around are simply astounding.
