Eagle Square, or Dataran Lang, dominates the skyline at Kuah Bay. The 12-metre, (39 feet) reddish-brown monument forms Langkawi’s emblem. According to local stories, the island’s name is an amalgam of both helang, or ‘eagle’ and ‘kawi’ which translates to reddish-brown in old Malay. Terraces, fountains and bridges fill the surrounding area along Kuah Bay creating an attractive environment at any time of the day. Tourists can find delicious Malaysian food in the area, too.
