Dataran Lang (Eagle Square) – A Photo Essay

A trip to Langkawi is incomplete without a visit to hugely popular Dataran Lang (also known as Eagle Square), a man-made structure.

Situated at the southeast corner of Pulau Langkawi, the 12 meter-tall statue is bound to take your breath away. The massive eagle sculpture greets everyone who comes to Kuah by ferry. The eagle is the emblem of Langkawi Island. Try to visit the place in the morning or evening as the afternoon sun could make you feel highly uncomfortable. As I was staying in a remote place of Langkawai, I hired a taxi to reach the place.

Klai Kangwon Palace is one of Hua Hin’s popular tourists spots. It used to be a primary summer royal residence of King Bhumibol Adulyadej (Rama IX) of Thailand.

in 1926, the construction of the massive compound was commissioned by King Prajadhipok (Rama VII). Finally it was completed in 1933. Surrounded by sea, Klai Kangwon has become a major attraction for foreign tourists.

The palace has many colorful and buildings with peaceful and picturesque surroundings. After negotiating with the driver, I hired a tuk tuk from downtown of Hua Hin and reached the place in around 40 minutes. As it was rainy season, I was completely drenched but it was full of fun and excitement.
