Langkawi, Malaysia




CHOGM Park is a 10-acre park in Kuah Town located opposite the Langkawi Development Authority (LADA) building and nearby the Al-Hana Mosque. The park was developed to commemorate Malaysia's hosting of the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting (CHOGM) in 1989 with the meeting held in Kuala Lumpur and retreat on Langkawi Island. Admission to the park is free and you can enter the park from Jalan Persiaran Putra, the main road in Kuah Town.

A walkway surrounds the park and a fountain in the centre. Trees planted across the park by the respective Commonwealth delegates in 1989 have grown and matured, providing much needed shade from the midday sun. The only beach in Kuah Town is located beside CHOGM Park and though not conducive for swimming, is a beautiful sandy stretch popular with strollers and locals enjoying the evening breeze.

Taman Lagenda
The 50-acre Taman Lagenda (Legend Park) is located nearby Dataran Lang (Eagle Square) about 400 metres from the ferry terminal in Kuah Town. A tree-lined walkway leads visitors from the entrance to the end of the park. The park features beautiful gardens, trees, lakes, a lagoon and a sandy stretch of beach. The park is a great place to escape from the midday heat with several wooden shelters to rest. Langkawi is deep in folk tales and there are 17 monuments within the park describing the famous legends and myths in the archipelago.
