Pantai Tengah has many restaurants, clubs and resorts, but does not boast many shopping opportunities apart from a small complex which houses a number of souvenir outlets situated along the beach strip. While duty-free shops in Langkawi are well-frequented for their cheap chocolates, cosmetics, and liquor, handmade souvenirs, knick knacks and handicrafts still remain relatively pricey.
Therefore, we recommend visitors to explore Pantai Tengah to shop for authentic Malaysian goods and take a short stroll to the neighbouring Pantai Cenang for duty-free items. Read on to discover our Top 5 Shopping in Pantai Tengah.
