To a large extent Langkawi is still a rural island of small villages and rice paddies. Most of the population is farmers and fisher folk whose ancestors have inhabited the islands for generations. The global craving for swaying coconut palms and long sandy beaches has led to the construction of coastal resorts, but the interior is mainly untouched, and covered in tropical rainforest. Here caves and waterfalls are sequestered deep within a jungle alive with monkeys and macaques, and 200 species of birds. A cable car runs high up the mountains, for splendid views and downhill hikes, and a marine park provides a venue for snorkeling and diving.
