“Sunset was stunning here”
Reviewed 25 November 2013

This is a fine spot and of course, one probably sees the image of this place one thousand times perhaps, before even stepping foot in Langkawi. The spot itself is perhaps not much, the square pretty large and there are several souvenir shops selling the usual souvenirs such as tees, keychains and fridge magnets. The eagle is impressively proportioned and I liked the details on it. We went on a Sunday afternoon and it was fairly crowded with visitors.

Come sundown and the light was amazing. There was some cloud cover right above us but the horizon was very clear. As the sun went down, there were fantastic blues and reds all over the sky and very soon the magic was gone. I would therefore recommend visiting this place in the late afternoon on a clear day.

“Langkawi Landmark”
Reviewed 14 November 2013

Dataran Lang or Eagle square is landmark of Langkawi and photo taking spot. Picture here tells people that you have been to Langkawi :-). This point is near Kuah jetty & jetty point, so you can just visit by walking some 300 meter. Nothing much to do there except photo taking.

“Landmark of Langkawi”
Reviewed 9 November 2013

Dataran Lang or Eagle square is landmark of Langkawi and photo taking spot. Picture here tells people that you have been to Langkawi :-). This point is near Kuah jetty , where most of ferry coming from mainland or penang arrives, so you can just visit by walking some 300 meter. Nothing much to do there except photo taking, so 15-30 minutes are enough. Some shops etc are also nearby, but you will find cenang street better.

“The eagle trademark”
Reviewed 28 October 2013

Giant eagle sculpture representing Langkawi. A great place to take pictures but nothing else you could do after that. All you need is 15-20 minutes for your photo taking.
