Buku mewah yang bertajuk, Taman Georimba Marmar Dayang Bunting Langkawi Geopark, Malaysia adalah siri ketiga buku mengenai Taman Georimba di Langkawi. Buku yang pertama, iaitu Kilim Karst Geoforest Park Langkawi Geopark, Malaysia diterbitkan pada tahun 2010, manakala buku kedua berjudul Machinchang Cambrian Geoforest Park Langkawi Geopark, Malaysia telah diterbitkan pada tahun 2015. Buku mewah ini bukan sahaja mempamerkan keindahan landskap Kepulauan Langkawi tetapi terhasil daripada terjemahan ilmu yang diterokai oleh para penyelidik Pusat Penyelidikan Langkawi sejak penubuhannya lagi. Buat julung kalinya, Taman Georimba Marmar Dayang Bunting dipersembahkan melalui pendekatan warisan terintegrasi iaitu, geologi, biologi dan budaya tempatan. Buku ini diolah dalam dua bahasa yang mudah supaya dapat dinikmati oleh semua golongan masyarakat dari dalam dan luar negara. Daripada perspektif geologi, Pulau Dayang Bunting terbentuk daripada batu kapur yang sebahagiannya telah mengalami perubahan menjadi marmar disebabkan oleh pemanasan rejahan batuan granit. Perlarutan yang berterusan pada batu kapur ini menghasilkan landskap kepulauan kars tropika unik yang menjadi daya tarikan para pelancong.

This coffee table book entitled, Dayang Bunting Marble Geoforest Park: Langkawi Geopark, Malaysia is the third in a series of books on Geoforest Parks in Langkawi. The first book, Kilim Karst Geoforest Park: Langkawi Geopark, Malaysia was published in 2010, while the second book entitled Machinchang Cambrian Geoforest Park: Langkawi Geopark, Malaysia’ was published in 2015. These coffee table books not only showcased the beautiful landscapes of Langkawi Archipelago but are derived from the translational knowledge explored by the researchers from Langkawi Research Centre, since its inception. For the first time, Dayang Bunting Marble Geoforest Park is presented through an integrated approach of geological, biological and local cultural heritage. This book is written in two languages so that everyone can enjoy it from within and outside the country. From the geological perspective, Pulau Dayang Bunting is formed from limestone, some of which was transformed into marble due to heating from granite intrusion. The ongoing dissolution of this limestone produced unique tropical island karst landscapes that become a tourist attraction.
