Langkawi enjoys consistently hot, sunny weather and little rainfall. The average daily temperature ranges between 86°F and 91°F. At night, temperatures average 84°F. The island gets the most rainfall from September to October, but the sea remains calm when it rains, so the rain has little impact on visitors' enjoyment of the island.
Langkawi has been awarded World Geopark status by UNESCO, so tourists often come to the island to experience its natural habitat.
