Although most of the top 10 is conquered by Thailand islands, (and I can’t deny that they are indeed pristine and amazing beaches) but Malaysia’s very own Langkawi island has done it again, a second win in the last three years! How amazing is that. It’s nice to have a nice easy-to-access island nearby for a quick break, I just hope that Langkawi will be able to keep its charm with more unique chalets and waters clean for many more years to come.
Having said that, I would probably make this list as my to-go list for 2014/2015 and by crossing out Bali, Gili Trawangan, Phuket and Langkawi, it’s four down and six more to go, so who’s with me? 🙂
