    By Air, By Ferry to Langkawi

    With so many convenient modes of transport available today, visiting Langkawi has never been easier. An overwhelming number of visitors swarm the Kuah Jetty after boarding ferries from the mainland.

    On the other hand, Langkawi boasts an International Airport, located 20 km (12.4 miles) away in Padang Matsirat, for locals and tourists with a little more budget to spare. There’s also the option to swim across from the mainland… Just make sure you’re life insurance is paid up first.

    Once you’re on the island, there are a few options available to getting around.

  • By Air

     Malaysian Airlines (MAS) and Air Asia operate daily flights to Langkawi from Kuala Lumpur. International travelers from certain places such as Osaka, Taipei and London can connect with MAS flights directly from their country or other airlines, depending on their availability in that particular region.

    Air Asia is the airborne version of a cheap local minibus, so you can’t go wrong if you’re looking for a good deal without the frills. Visitors from Singapore can use Silk Air which also flies directly to Langkawi daily.
