Tasik Dayang Bunting, Langkawi

Langkawi is an archipelago which consists of 99 islands and is off the mainland coast of northwestern peninsular Malaysia. Langkawi island has been given the world geopark status by UNESCO. One of the main attractions is the Dayang Bunting Island, which is translated into  Island of the Pregnant Maiden Lake. In the first picture you can make out the outline of the pregnant lady outline(head to the right). Tasik Dayang Bunting is the largest freshwater lake in that area and has a great swimming area. Malaysians believe that drinking water from this lake helps barren women to bear children.
