It’s a natural salt water ๐Ÿ’ฆ๐Ÿ’งhot spring ya

Moreover, it’s not nearby sea ๐ŸŒŠ side, this village is located ๐Ÿ“in the middle of Langkawi Island ๐ŸŒด๐Ÿ–๐Ÿ

This is really rare & can only be found in 3๏ธโƒฃ other countries in the world i.e. Green Island in Taiwan ๐Ÿ‡น๐Ÿ‡ผ (nearby sea ๐ŸŒŠ side), Kyushu Islandย in Japan ๐Ÿ‡ฏ๐Ÿ‡ต & Sicilyย in Italy ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡น So, a must visit when you’re at Langkawi Island ๐ŸŒด๐Ÿ–๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป

Hmm…What’s a Geoparkโ“โ‰๏ธ

It should comprise of a territory with well-defined limits that has a large enough surface area for it to serve local economic development. Yes,โœ… a certain number of geological heritage sites (any scale) / a mosaic of geological entities of special scientific importance, rarity / beauty, representative of an area & its geological history, events / processes. It may not solely be of geological significance but also of ecological, archaeological, historical / cultural value (reference from its website๐ŸŒ) ๐Ÿคฉ
