2) How to go

a) Via Flight from KLIA (MAS) or LCCT (Air Asia) - Refer to respective Airlines' websites

b) Drive up via North South Expressway & exit at Alor Setar toll. Thereafter to Kuala Kedah jetty. Park at numerous parking operated by locals & probably local residents house as well. Alternative you can drive up to Kuala Perlis which is not recommended because of extra mileage.

c) By Bus:

-To Kuala Kedah - So far no result on express buses to Kuala Kedah, but I have seen lotsa such buses. Do check Puduraya counters (Or any one wth info, do PM me (stimix) for update) Anyway the best so far (By Putraskline) is to Alor Star & thereafter a taxi or local bus from AS to KKedah http://journeymalaysia.com/ptaalorstar.htm

- To kuala Perlis - Transnational having xpress bus to Kuala Perlis at RM42.80/pax http://www.transnasional.com.my/destinatio...&cid=5&x=45&y=2 & also Plusliner (By putraskline): http://www.transnasional.com.my/destinatio...&cid=5&x=45&y=2

d) Ferry Schedule & fare: http://www.langkawi-ferry.com/schedule.html (Currently RM23/pax/1way)

3) Normal Car Rental Rate (Available both at Airport & ferry terminal. No need advance booking. Just goto the counters providing car rental services and during low season, those rental companies will be hawking around!):

a) Off season & non-public Holiday (Car/day)

- Kancil -RM40
- Wira - RM50
- Waja -RM60
- Nissan Sentra /Honda Civic -RM70
- Toyota Altis - RM80
- Van/SUV ~RM100-RM120

for those really kiasu and wanted to book via phone can try this: http://forum.lowyat.net/index.php?showtopi...dpost&p=9552871 but from those posting, seems like walk-in rate is cheaper than pre-book. smile.gif

b) Public Holidays & School Holidays - Probably Doubled the above & depending on your bargaining power

c) Bringing your own car - Probably takes up to 2 days, about RM90/way

d) Motor bike renting:


4) Tourist Attractions:

a) Kuah Duty Free Shopping - Go for Cigarette, Liquor, Cooking utensils, Chocolates & perfumes. Forget about Electronics, computers, cameras & etc that are already comes with duty free status even in KL...Those items are more expensive than KL. Similarly the food pricing to is almost similar to KL except the beers in those hawker ctr..

b) Island Hopping - 4 locations (Pulau Payar/Dayang Bunting - Kuah Jetty), South western islands - Jetty near Awana resort; Magrove tour either at the road near Perdana Gallery or Tg Rhu Beach

More info on island hopping:
c) Mat Chincang Cable car & Oriental Village http://www.langkawi-info.com/attractions/cable-car.htm

d) More sight seeing (Some not really recommended: http://www.langkawi-info.com/attractions/sightseeing.htm

Just got back from Tioman, and eager to go on another island getaway! Would appreciate advice on:

1. What's the best hotel for budget of RM100/night?
2. How easy is it to get around, i.e. from Pantai Cenang area to Kuah?

And other suggestions deeply appreciated! biggrin.gif Thanks!

PS: Me + hubby + young daughter will be traveling together ^^

1) hotel asia at kuah at under rm100, very new and clean. but it's at kuah

2) if you got car, then from cenang to kuah is very easy. without that, then taxi which is quite plenty at both side


Added on April 30, 2012, 8:57 amSawadee Thai Seafood @ Pantai Cenang

After the 4 hours island hoping, both me and LY are sorta exhausted already. However, since both of us have a bad breakfast, we both agree that we should have something better before we check in our hotel.

However, nobody bother to served us or acknowledge that we will be served soon when we are here. Only 1 waiter is taking orders, and no other waiter are to be seen. We sat for almost 10 minutes before someone finally come to us. I am still amazed on my patience, maybe I am too tired? Hmm….

1. You can browse throu the website as stated on the first post for the pricing of the hotel. First, you need to identify which area you gonna stay, be it, Pantai Cenang, Kuah, Pantai Kok or?

2. Pretty easy to go around langkawi with car. The car rental is cheap in Langkawi. Please refer to earlier post for the pricing. The price is pretty much standard.

If you are in Kuah, try Wan Thai Restaurant in P'siaran Bunga Raya. thumbup.gif Or 'nasi campur' style, go to Sinaran Restoren in front of Bank Rakyat near the duty free commercial area of Pandak Mayah. For Sinaran , go before 12 noon else all will be sold out!

If you are to go to the orkid restaurant, the menu there got lists out the style of cooking. Whilst, you can seek the recommendation from the waiter.

However, if you are ordering lobster, i wudnt recommend you to have it cook with salad. I ordered salad lobster and and it taste so so only. I wud recommend grill lobster.

The lobsters are spread into a few categories. Frozen or fresh. Frozen is price at RM18/100g. fresh is price at RM24/100g, 28/100g, 38/100g, depending on the size.
