    3.- Getting Arround


    Car & Motorcycle

    Cars can be rented cheaply and touts from the travel agencies at the Kuah jetty will assail you upon arrival. Rates start at around RM70 per day, but drop with bargaining.

    The easiest way to get around is to hire a motorbike for around RM35 per day. You can do a leisurely circuit of the island (70km) in a day. The roads are excellent, and outside Kuah it’s very pleasant and easy riding. Motorbikes can be hired at stands all over the island.

    Taxi, UBER, GRAB

    As there is no public transport in Langkawi, taxis are the main way of getting around, but fares are relatively high so it can be worthwhile renting your own vehicle. There are taxi stands at the airport, Kuah jetty, Pantai Cenang and Cenang Mall, and Pantai Tengah, at Frangipani hotel. There are fixed rates for all destinations – displayed at the stand – and no taxi should use a meter. It’s also possible to hire a taxi for four hours for RM120.

    However UBER and GRAB now operates in Langkawi.


    Riding a bike is not that uncommon in Langkawi. Take up one of the many cycling tour packages offered by operators or you can just rent one from the hotel you’re staying in. Enjoy a nice ride through the countryside or to the nearby fishing villages and cycle between old traditional Malay rustic houses. Wherever you end up, find surprising beauty in places normally inaccessible by anything other than a simple bike.

  • Visa & Customs

    Visa & Customs

    With duty-free shopping such a major aspect of tourism on Langkawi, the customs and immigration rules are strongly enforced. Please consult your nearest Malaysian Embassy or consular office to confirm this arrangement, as regulations may change over time. Visitors are also checked thoroughly upon departure, so be prepared to pay duty tax if you buy more than the allowed quantities of goods.

    3.1 Customs

    To enjoy the duty-free alcohol and cigarettes in Langkawi, you would need to stay on the island for at least 2 days (48 hours). Please retain your ferry or flight tickets and hotel receipts as proof of arrival the next time you decide to go on a duty-free shopping spree.

    However, do keep in mind that there are duty-free limits for certain types of items each visitor is allowed to take home: alcohol (up to one litre), tobacco (up to 225g, or 200 cigarettes), one pair of leather footwear, Batik (up to four pieces) as well as cosmetics and personal hygiene items (not including powder or hair products).

    The total amount spent on duty-free item(s) must not exceed RM500 for tax exemption reasons.

    3.2 Visas

    Tourist visas are issued upon arrival and are free for citizens of most countries – except for North Korea, Cuba, Vietnam and China. Other foreigners may enter Malaysia without a visa for a visit not exceeding one month.

    Visitors can extend their tourist visa at the immigration office in Kuah. Make sure your passport is valid for at least six months after your date of entry into Malaysia.
