Langkawi Island was endorsed as a Global Geopark by the UNESCO Global Network of National Geoparks (GGN) in 2007 for its effort in promoting and conserving internationally significant geological features within the Machinchang Cambrian Geoforest Par, alongside Kilim Karst Geoforest Park and Dayang Bunting Marble Geoforest Park.   Geoforest park is a unique concept first developed by the Foresty Department of Peninsular Malaysia for the purpose of protecting geodiversity within protected reserved forest of Langkawi.  In essence, this particular forest showcases remarkable heritage assets of both geology and biology. Couple with nature recreational activities within the forest and socio-economic activities within the neighbouring areas, Machinchang Cambrian Geoforest Park has become increasingly popular among visitors within and outside of Langkawi. This Machinchang Cambrian Geoforest Park book expounds on geotourism in promoting knowledge through captivating pictures and write ups. This book captures the beauty of Langkawi’s incredible rock features and landscapes and includes both factual and fascinating accounts of their origin.   Flora and fauna colour the pages, reflect the variety of nature’s most elegant creations.   From man’s first discovery of Langkawi, community, culture and traditions have developed against a backdrop of ancient myths about the battle of two legendary giants.  Here in the Machinchang Cambrian Geoforest Park, we find a fascinating world dating back to the origins of early life, but reaching into today’s vibrant and lively Geopark eco-experience.
