Eagle Bird Square is the spot that reflects starting point of Langkawi's name. The square is set apart by a huge 12-meter figure of a ruddy cocoa bird which is ready to take off. Langkawi's name has been gotten from ruddy cocoa falcon, in light of the fact that in old Malay dialect Helang implies Eagle, and Kawi remains for rosy chestnut. So this synthetic statue of the falcon put on an enormous star formed solid stage has been made to mirror this foundation of the island where a bird is the image of Langkawi, But the highlight of Eagle Square is its awesome view of the bay that opens out to the sea with the backdrop of mountains. From Eagle Square, you can see the ferries plying across the bay. And if you are arriving to Kuah town by a ferry (i.e. by the sea), you will sea this gigantic model of the eagle facing the waters greeting you as you approach the jetty. Note that it can be really hot here during the mid day.
