Langkawi's designated Duty Free Port status makes shopping here quite fun and very popular. It carries the largest selection. Enjoying duty free status within Malaysia makes Langkawi a great place to pick up some superb bargains during your holiday, although it is neither as cheap, nor is there as much variety as you will find in Kuala Lumpur. There is a large mall called Langkawi Fair, where you can pick up the best bargains, and one of the best places to go shopping for luxury goods is the Langkawi Parade, where you can browse the high-end boutiques. For souvenir hunting, it's a good idea to wander through the markets along the harbour front and pick up locally produced handicrafts such as Langkawi Craft Complex.
The Langkawi archipelago is a cluster of 99 islands just off the coast of Kedah, close to Perlis and just south of Thailand.
Pulau Langkawi, noted for its legends and beautiful views, is the most developed in the group. It has good beaches, abundant marine life and offers an idyllic retreat from the urban jungle.
A duty-free port, this island of scenic, tranquil landscapes, has become a favorite destination for local and international visitors alike.
Langkawi is accessible by ferry from either Kuala Kedah (75 minutes) or Kuala Perlis (45 minutes).
Ferries usually leave on the hour from 7.00 am to 6.00 pm. Both ferry terminals offer ample parking facilities at just RM5 per day.
There are daily flights to Langkawi from Kuala Lumpur which land at Langkawi International Airport. The entire cluster of islands covers an area of 47,850 hectares and is separated from the mainland by the Straits of Malacca. Of the 99 islands in the group, only Pulau Tuba, Pulau Singa, Pulau Dayang Bunting, and Pulau Langkawi are inhabited.
Mainly a padi-growing and fishing region, Pulau Langkawi's residents have diversified into more commercial and tourism-related activities. The main commercial areas are in the towns of Kuah, Padang Maksirat and Padang Lalang.
The island of Langkawi is steeped in legend and there are some fascinating stories connected to several tourist attractions.
Visit the Tomb of Mahsuri, the Field of Burnt Rice, the Hot Springs and the Beach of Black Sand. Boat tours are organized to Tasik Dayang Bunting, (Lake of the Pregnant Maiden), Gua Cerita (Cave of Stories) and the Gua Langsir.
