Getting around in Langkawi

There are a number of high-speed ferry trips from Penang, Kuala Lumpur, Perlis, Satun in Southern Thailand. Various airlines including Malaysia Airlines, AirAsia, Singapore Airlines and Firefly Airlines, fly in and out of Langkawi International Airport on a daily basis.

There is almost no public transport on the island. There exists however a reliable, albeit expensive, taxi system in Langkawi, which operates on a fixed price system. That is to say, the fare between any two parts of the island is the same.The only other option for visitors to travel around the island is to rent a car or a scooter/motorbike or a bicycle.

While there are a lot of taxis and car rentals available to help you get around Langkawi, it is best to rent a motorcycle or a bicycle instead to take in the marvelous scenery. Just make sure you don’t forget to wear your helmet.
