Located centrally in Padang Matsirat and close to the Langkawi International Airport, Atma Alam Batik Art Village is a complex that showcases a wide array of exclusively handmade as well as block printed batik art that includes dress materials, paintings and handicraft products.
The long L-shaped single storied building set up in a half-acre sprawling compound has been built in traditional Malaysian architecture with slanted triangular roofs. It has been established by the couple Aza Osman (an oil painter) and his wife Roshadah Yusof, also known as Sada who herself is a reputed Batik artist and designer. They moved to Langkawi together in 1987 and founded the Batik Art Village. They both live and work here. Aza spent 15 years in Europe, mostly in Italy. Having studied and learned fine arts, he returned to his homeland to share his experience and skills.
Sada, on the other hand, had been a self-taught well-established batik artist. Her batik artwork is commissioned at most of the luxury resorts in the island. There is also a cafe where you can have coffee with homemade cookies and cakes.

Langkawi’s Ayer Hangat Village is home to therapeutic hot springs lying just north of Kuah on Jalan Ayer Hangat and makes for an interesting trip. Malay-style buildings create a village-like environment on the lushly landscaped grounds, with cool and hot water pools. A series of small canals run through the grounds and connect hot spring water collected from two wells with cooler water, offering you temperature variation options. Surprisingly, the hot springs are natural salt water, which seeps up from the shallow tide table. The springs claim to be medicinal, helping improve chronic skin conditions, detoxing and joint pain resulting from injury or gout.
Located four kilometres southwest of Tanjung Rhu Beach, the beach offers memorable photo opportunities and a peaceful retreat from the island’s often crowded areas. Despite its name, the beach is actually a mix of black and white sand, which some locals believe to be the result of a centuries-old curse laid by a mermaid because a fisherman had stolen her ring. Others claim that it’s soil from the rice paddy fields that were burned by farmers back in 1821.
