“hmm...just a very big Helang (Eagle) statue...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2013

basically it is just a huge statue of an Eagle (the symbol of Langkawi) but other than that, basically nothing much. not enough shops or attraction. nice view of the lake. but just a big space with a statue in the middle.

“15 minutes is enough”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2013

Searching on internet Langkawi you will see this eagle everywhere. Yes it is the icon of Langkawi and a must go spot.

But this is just a photo-shooting side. No beautiful view, no clean water and the sun is too strong in the afternoon.

It's just nearby Kuah jetty, walking 5-10 minutes. You don't have to come here purposely, if you are going to marine park or taking ferry to mainland, just drop by while waiting your boat.

“Eagle that has landed”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2013

Eagle is the symbol of the Langkawi and the city has ensured that this is made into an attraction. Located near the ferry area and designed to be a photographers delight. From the three angles one can take nice pictures and the majestic eagle is there for you to trap in your cameras.

“Only for a picture”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 16, 2013

As an icon, and a proof that we already had been here. Just take a picture in front of the sculpture, and we better look around inside langkawi fair mall after that.
