Langkawi,(Jawi:لانكاوي ) officially known as Langkawi, the Jewel of Kedah (Malay: Langkawi Permata Kedah) is an archipelago of 99 islands (an extra 5 temporary islands are revealed at low tide) in the Andaman Sea, some 30 km off the mainland coast of northwestern Malaysia.
Langkawi is a duty-free area.
Langkawi Ferry operates fast A/C boats from Kuala Perlis (75 min), Kuala Kedah (105 min), Penang (165 min), and Satun, Thailand (75 min), (Satun ferry to Langkawi: last boat departs Satun at 4PM.
Telaga Harbour operates ferries from Ko Lipe, Thailand twice per day during the high season, at 9:30AM and 2:30PM (75 min). These boats dock at the south end of Pattaya Beach. Bookings can be made online.
Langkawi International Airport (IATA: LGK | ICAO: WMKL) is located at Padang Matsirat, on the northwestern part of the island. There are no airbridges, so in the event of rain, the airline will supply umbrellas for the walk to the plane.
The following airlines offer service to/from Langkawi: AirAsia to Singapore, Penang, LCCT, KLIA2 , Malaysia Airlines to KLIA, Firefly to KL's Subang skypark airport and Penang, and SilkAir from Singapore.
Direct flights are available to Langkawi from Penang, Singapore, Kuala Lumpur, Hat Yai, and Phuket.
There is effectively no public transport on the island, so your choices are to use taxis or to rent a car, motorbike/scooter, or bicycle.
A taxi service available from the Airport to Pantai Cenang. You can buy a coupon at the taxi desk in the airport. Also available from the ferry terminal to Pantai Cenang. All taxis work to a fixed price system, a fare from one part of the island to another is always the same price. This system results in higher prices, but very few problems since the taxi drivers are paid well enough and do not try and rip off tourists or participate in any of the dodgier shenanigans seen elsewhere in South East Asia. The result is a reliable and trustworthy, but more expensive taxi system.
By car or motorbike/scooter
Renting a car or motorbike/scooter is highly recommended due to lack of public transport. Remember to have regularly check on your fuel level, petrol pump stations, (gas stations) are far from one another. Remember to drive safely and slowly on the island and on the left side of the road.

Seatbelts mandatory in all vehicles. 3. Helmet mandatory. 4. International driver's license if from another country.
