Second, it could be a blend of the Malay words 'helang', signifying "bird" and 'kawi', signifying "rosy dark colored" or "solid", in old Malay.
Langkawi in the long run went under the impact of the Sultanate of Kedah, however Kedah was vanquished in 1821 by Siam and Langkawi alongside it. The Anglo-Siamese Treaty of 1909 moved capacity to the British, which held the state until autonomy, aside from a concise time of Thai standard under the Japanese control of Malaya during World War II. Thai impacts stay noticeable in the way of life and nourishment of Langkawi.
