Getting to Langkawi
You can reach Langkawi by road, rail or air, from the Malaysian capital of Kuala Lumpur. Express ferries provide regular services daily to Langkawi from both Kuala Kedah and Kuala Perlis. The journey to Langkawi from Kuala Kedah and Kuala Perlis takes 1 hour 15 minutes and 45 minutes respectively.
The least time consuming way (albeit more expensive) to reach Langkawi are the direct air services from Kuala Lumpur to Langkawi, provided by Malaysia Airlines on a daily basis and Air Asia five times weekly.
The most convenient way of seeing Langkawi is to hire a self-driven car at the airport itself. You are not even required to pay any deposit against the vehicle!
