Air means water and hangat means hot in Malay. Hence Air Hangat literally means Hot Springs. The name is associated with an ancient legend of two feuding families who threw jugs, pots and pans at each other. One of the jugs, filled with boiling water, fell on the ground and immediately a hot spring gushed out of the spot where the village now stands.

Gunung Raya is accessible by road - all the way to the top. The view from the peak is great - specially for sunset photos. Gunung Raya is home to the white-bellied sea eagle - circling high round the mountaintop - and many hornbills.

Spread over reclaimed land on the west of Pulau Langkawi, the 32ha Telaga Harbour sits on Pantai Kok's pretty cove framed by rugged limestone and Gunung Mat Chinchang.
'Telaga' is the 2nd biggest marina on Langkawi. Very nice surroundings - but far away from some decent shopping possibilities.
