Transportation

Langkawi Information

Transportation

Langkawi is a part of the Malaysian state of Kedah. In 2007 the island was declared a Global Geopark by the UNESCO. Reaching Langkawi is very easy, the main two options for getting to Langkawi are by plane or by boat. You can fly from Kuala Lumpur, Bangkok, Phuket, or Krabi. The flight from Kuala Lumpur takes around 1 hour and from Bangkok about 5 hours. If you’re coming from Thailand, especially from Hat Yai or Satun, taking a ferry to the island will be the best option and the most fun too! Koh Lipe hosts an immigration point you can hop your way across the border from Lipe after enjoying the rest of Thailand’s islands. The ferry from Lipe island to Langkawi takes about 90 minutes. In low season trips can be delayed or canceled depending on the sea condition. You will find plenty of ferry/speedboat trips from Phi Phi, Phuket, Lanta, and many others to Lipe, where you will change boats to reach Langkawi.
