Langkawi Isle: Kuah Town

Kuah is the main town in Langkawi. It is basically a shopping center populated by various duty-free shops, seafood restaurants, banks and hotels. TheĀ  town was once a fishing village before its development. The name “Kuah” is a Malay word meaning “gravy” and is associated with an ancient legend of two battling giants who overturned a gigantic pot of curry at the spot where the town now stands (refer Lagenda Park II).
