Top islands in Asia and the world revealed, based on reviews and opinions of millions of travellers on TripAdvisor.

LANGKAWI makes the latest top 10 list of islands in Asia released by TripAdvisor, the world’s largest travel site. In its second year, the annual awards recognise more than 100 islands globally, including top 10 lists for Asia, Africa, the Caribbean, Europe, South America, the South Pacific, and the United States.

Travellers’ Choice Islands winners are determined based on the quality and quantity of the most highly-rated hotels, restaurants, and attractions listed for each island on TripAdvisor gathered during a 12-month period.

“We are truly delighted to see Langkawi, known as the legendary island paradise and home to Unesco-endorsed Geopark, coming in at No. 10 in Asia for the TripAdvisor Travellers’ Choice Islands Awards. The award is certainly a great way to kickstart Visit Malaysia Year 2014,” said Tourism and Culture Minister Datuk Seri Mohammed Nazri Abdul Aziz.

“We are confident this Jewel of Kedah will gain more prominence in the hearts of travellers worldwide, and we urge everyone to take advantage of Visit Malaysia Year 2014 by making a trip to experience the beauty of Langkawi,” he continued.
