Belgian writer's new book On Langkawi out next week
A Belgian writer, Walter François, has come out with his second book on Malaysia, this time a coffee-table book on Langkawi, the duty-free island resort.

"Langkawi-Island of the Mysterious Legends", is scheduled to hit Malaysian bookstores next week in conjunction with the Christmas celebration.

The book, which contains 218 pictures taken by the author, features Langkawi as a "more than sunny skies and sandy beaches" tourist destination in this part of the region.

"Langkawi has so much more that visitors can explore such as its diversified and rich ecosystem as well as its colourful history and culture," the banker-turned-author said.

François said the 176-page book would also be an ideal Christmas and New Year gift this festive season.

This is his second book after the first, entitled "Malaysia" was published in 2001.
