Experience the Isles of Legends – Langkawi. Langkawi is an archipelago made up of 99 islands on Malaysia’s west coast. Surrounded by turquoise sea, the interior of the main island is a mixture of picturesque paddy fields and jungle-clad hills. Known for its excellent diving opportunities, this tropical gem hides a treasure trove of other exciting destinations from the majestic South East Asia first UNESCO Global Geopark to the soaring SkyCab/cable car in Pantai Kok.



Venue Highlights

The MIEC is the largest exhibition and convention facility in Langkawi with an area of approximately 71,400 square metres. It is of an international standard suitable for all conventions and equipped with an exhibition centre, function rooms, lounge rooms, VIP suites, gallery and viewing deck.

Getting there

By far the easiest way to travel to Langkawi is by air. Langkawi International Airport is a small but modern airport that lies in the west of the island, next to the sea with all necessary facilities, numerous car rental companies, tour agencies and restaurants.
