Are you planning a visit to the beautiful island of Langkawi? Langkawi is part of a 99-island group off Malaysia’s west coast. You will be able to appreciate the calm of the location as well as the most breathtaking Andaman Sea views. If you’re visiting Langkawi for the first time, you might be wondering how to get to the remote island. However, with so many convenient modes of transportation available, navigating about the island has never been simpler.

There are several reasons why you should visit the ideal tropical retreat. There are many activities to do in Langkawi that will keep you entertained for the duration of your holiday, whether you want to relax on the best beaches in the world, eat delicious food, or learn about the island’s culture and history.

Here are some modes of transportation accessible to Langkawi.

Travel by air

By far the most convenient method to get to Langkawi is by plane. Airfares are often quite low. If you make your reservations in advance, you may save a lot of money on your tickets. For example, if you purchase your tickets during a sale, you may be able to travel to Langkawi for less than RM100 per person. You may occasionally fly even cheaper with AirAsia. Don’t expect to get inexpensive tickets at the moment; airlines will charge the maximum possible prices. There are multiple daily flights from Kuala Lumpur to Langkawi International Airport.

Malaysia Airlines operates from KLIA, AirAsia operates from LCCT, and Firefly operates from Subang Airport. There are also direct flights from Singapore to Langkawi Island. Langkawi is also conveniently accessible from a variety of different parts of Malaysia, making it a popular tourist destination.

Langkawi International Airport is a small but efficient airport. It is situated on the island’s west shore, just adjacent to the sea (airplanes fly low over the water to land). At the airport, you’ll find car rental companies, tour companies, restaurants (including a Starbucks), ATMs, and gift shops. There are also offices for AirAsia and Malaysia Airlines at the airport.

How do I get to my hotel after landing at LGK?

Upon arriving in Langkawi, look for an authorized taxi counter directly outside baggage claim. This coupon-based system is easy to use, devoid of scams, and prevents unauthorized drivers from bothering newcomers. Prices are set. If you are traveling alone, you may save money and reduce traffic on the island by doing what budget tourists do: Inquire with others in the line if they want to share a ride. A cab from the airport to Pantai Cenang, the most popular tourist beach takes around 15 minutes, depending on traffic.

Travel via Ferry

Ferries connect Kuala Kedah, Kuala Perlis, Penang, Satun, and Koh Lipe in Thailand to Langkawi via four routes (Kuah Jetty). All of which have frequent departures – this means of transportation to the island is quite convenient and a more affordable option for people who have delayed booking their transportation to the last minute. A ferry is also a fantastic option for transporting an automobile from the mainland. There are roll-on/roll-off boats that transport autos, freight, and passengers between Kuala Perlis.

Travel by Train

Keretapi Tanah Melayu Berhad operates train services (KTMB). The North-South line begins in Singapore and extends all the way to Bangkok, Thailand. Malaysian trains appear to be rather ancient on the outside, yet they are shockingly vibrant on the inside. The train from KL leaves in the evening and arrives in the early hours of the following morning. In the north of Malaysia, you can get off at Butterworth (for Penang passengers) or Alor Setar (for Langkawi passengers). You may take the boat to the island from there. There are daily boats that run between Alor Setar (the ferry port in the adjacent settlement of Kuala Kedah) and Langkawi Island; a boat journey costs roughly RM25 and takes around 1.5 hours.

Island hopping in Langkawi

Because Langkawi has multiple islands off its shore, island hopping is one of the most popular activities on the island. From freshwater lakes to wild eagles and lovely beaches, Langkawi’s day excursions have a lot to offer.

A day trip from Langkawi to the islands.

An island-hopping journey from Langkawi takes you to a variety of islands, each with its own distinct personality. This report describes the islands you visit, where your Langkawi island hopping tour begins, and how much the adventure costs.Some of the islands include Pulau Dayang Bunting, Pulau Singa Besar and Pulau Beras Basah namely.

Getting around Langkawi

There are several options to go about the island. The road network is adequate. On the road, it’s usually quiet, and people drive slowly. Kuah and Pantai Cenang are the busiest places on the island. The traffic on Langkawi Island is unrivaled by that of Kuala Lumpur or Georgetown on the neighboring island of Penang. Crossing animals such as cows and monkeys is one of the most dangerous driving scenarios we’ve seen on the island.


The majority of tourists utilize taxi buses to get about the island; taxis are an efficient means of transportation. In contrast to other regions of Malaysia, the taxi system is well-organized, with fixed pricing for the whole island. There will be no problems with the taximeter or bargaining for a reasonable fare; simply purchase a ticket at the counter and board! Taxi stands may be found all throughout the island. Practically every resort has a taxi stop, and you can also find them at almost all of the island’s major attractions, shopping malls, the seaport (Jetty Point), and the airport.

Rent a Car

There are several car rental companies in Langkawi Island. You have the option of picking up the vehicle in Kuah or having it delivered to your hotel or resort (in case you make online reservations upfront). Renting a car is more expensive than renting a motorcycle; rental prices for a small car normally start at RM120 per day. Because Langkawi is a small island, a compact car is all that is needed to travel the island. There is no need to rent an expensive four-wheel-drive car because the island has no off-road driving capabilities. Driving in Langkawi necessitates using appropriate two-lane roadways.

Rent a motorcycle

The motorcycle is more pleasant and less costly. Langkawi, like many other Malaysian attractions, is best visited on a motorcycle. It is the most efficient and practical way to see the island. The island has a well-maintained road system. There aren’t many cars on the island, particularly in the north.

A motorbike will cost you at least about RM40/45 per day. When you arrive, you may get on the motorcycle and return it when you depart. As a result, you’re always on the move and don’t have to rely on (usually) expensive taxis. You can easily reach the little settlements in Langkawi’s countryside on a motorcycle.

Rent a Bicycle

Riding a bike around the island allows you to appreciate the natural beauty of the island. A bicycle may be rented for as cheap as 12 RM a day on the island. Without a question, riding a bicycle is one of the most convenient and cost-effective methods to navigate around Langkawi!

Necessary Travel Documents

If you are not a Malaysian citizen, you must have your passport and a Malaysia entrance visa with you when visiting Langkawi. If you are a Malaysian, be sure to bring your MyKad/IC and driving license with you.

Customs Duty and Duty-Free Shopping

Langkawi is a haven for duty-free shopping. With the exception of a few sensitive goods, you will not be required to pay customs duty or sales tax on the majority of your purchases here. See Langkawi Customs Duty for further details on the duty-free items list.
