LOCAL TRANSPORTATION
Ben van Wijnen

"Although Langkawi is small (the main island being only about 320 sq kms), you will need a road transport to explore the island or visit the attractions. The road network of Langkawi is considered quite good and reach out to almost all corners of the island.
There are two kinds of roads - the main roads that connect the main places of the island and the side roads that take you to the nooks and crannies."

Taking buses is not recommended for going around the island of Langkawi as there are only few bus routes and it takes time to wait for a bus. There is a bus station in front of the City Bayview Hotel in Kuah.
Buses ply the route from the jetty to the center of town and passengers are charged for each way. The only other destination of the public buses is Pantai Cenang.

The easiest way to get around the island is on a motorbike, which can be hired for approximately RM 25 to RM 40 a day. The roads are excellent and outside Kuah, it's pleasant and easy riding. Hondas available for you to rent. It can take you as far as 70 kilometers around the island and there is nothing to worry about the road condition. The road in Langkawi is well-maintained and less traffic especially outside Kuah town.
Traveling by motorbike is a smooth, fresh  and fun. Hiring a motorbike is also not difficult as there are heaps of places that rent them out and most of them are not strictly about seeing your license before handing the bike over to you. Hiring a motorbike will cost you
RM 30 - RM 40.

It is best to seek the assistance of the resort concierge to arrange bookings and fares with the taxi drivers.

Taxis from the airport cost about RM 14 to Kuah Town and about RM 12 to Pantai Kok or Pantai Cenang. Purchase a coupon at the airport desk before leaving the terminal and use it to pay the taxi driver.
