Race Information

 

Welcome to Langkawi

The Langkawi archipelago is made up of a cluster of 99 islands, sprinkled just off the shores of the Northern Kedah State in Peninsular Malaysia. During low tide, the number of islands expands to 104. It's understandable that only a few islands are inhabited. Many of the islands are little more than rocky outcrops separated by narrow canals where only sampans(little boats) can travel through. Langkawi island (478.5 sq.km) is the largest of them all and is not much smaller than Singapore (646 sq.km) but has a much smaller island population of only 62,000.
 
Kuah, Langkawi's main town and port where ferries from the mainland and Penang anchor. Numerous duty free shops have sprouted and many new hotels and chalets with prices to suit everyone's budget have been constructed. The main Tourist Information Centre is located a distance away from the ferry jetty, heading towards town.

TRAVEL INFORMATION

Getting There

By Car

There are a number of take-off points to Langkawi Island - Kuala Kedah jetty in the Kedah and Kuala Perlis jetty in Perlis. So head for any of these jetties depending on which is most convenient to you. There is a cargo ferry that operates from Kuala Kedah in Kedah to Tanjung Lumbung in Langkawi. The cargo ferry leaves around 11.00am and charges for transporting cars depend on the model e.g. Proton model RM180 per way and takes one day to arrive. Meantime you will have to get on a passenger ferry and pick up the car the day after it leaves K.Kedah. Don't forget to bring along the car registration. This may only be worth the trouble if you spend a week or more. Or Have a look at www.langkawiroro.com for updated info

Otherwise, you can park your car at the 24hour car parks close to the jetties and take the passenger ferries across. At Kuala Kedah, it costs between RM9 to RM11 per day to park at the 24hour car parks situated close to the jetty.
