The eagle is really huge and magnificent! We visited it during night time and the lights shining on the eagle makes for spectacular photos. I hope the crazy extremist who wants the Eagle statue to be torn down recently doesn't gets his way....

This is a must visit place when in Langkawi. A photograph of the iconic eagle is a must. Other than that, there were not many interesting aspects to Eagle Square.

This is a place for photo shoot, nothing much. A place to visit if you're here for the first time. Don't miss the EAGLE!

Nice eagle but that's it. Nothing special in its surroundings. No proper shops as well. Good to just spend 5mins to take a couple of photos and move on. Driving and parking is a chore around that area.

I was told this is a must see if you come to the island. Was not dissapointed - it is close to the harbour (if you come in by the speedboats). There are some shops around. The main attraction is of course the eagle structure (which is what the name Langkawi means). Went during the daytime, but I am sure... More

China is known by its Panda, Sarawak by the hornbill, Sabah by Mt Kinabalu etc. Langkawi is known and symbolized by the eagle. This 12 metre eagle overlooks the sea. The square on which it sots on is easily accessible. The walk from the nearby car park takes about 10minutes. Here the kids can play while the adults relax. It... More

I came after it rained. It was cold. Wind blowing so windy.So calm. Nice scenery to look at. Huge eagle to take picture with. The best thing do buy here is to buy ice cream to all ur famiy members, sit around the eagle.Enjoy the calmness. Take pictures and stroll around

You can visit for good sea view with eagle sculpture. Make sure to visit in evening time as day time will make you feel very hot in that open area.
