Langkasuka (also referred to as Widad@Langkasuka) is a proposed new urban development in Langkawi Malaysia. The project by Widad Group Berhad involves constructing 1000 acres of artificial islands in the bay next to Langkawi International Airport.
The project will form an eagle-shaped landmass (the white-crested eagle being the symbol of Langkawi) comprised of nine zones. The islands will be linked to each other by internal roads, a monorail, and a pedestrian walkway.
Widad@Langkasuka will comprise luxury hotels and resorts, an international golf course, a yacht club, shopping malls, office space, residential, higher learning institutions, and healthcare facilities.
