Hotel Langkawi Kuah

By [email protected] - Nov 28, 2018 (Last Updated Dec 05, 2018)

Planning for a holiday but destination is still unknown?  Still cannot decide which place to go to? Will it be Melaka? Cameron Highlands? Penang

How about if we suggest you to visit Langkawi?  Here's why we suggest you to visit Langkawi. Langkawi is a duty-free island in the far north of Peninsula Malaysia within the border of Kedah. To the locals in Malaysia, Langkawi is synonymous with cheap chocolates, cigarettes, and alcohol as its' status as one of the few Malaysia duty-free islands.

Not just a shopping paradise, nature lover can also travel to Langkawi for an extraordinary experience of island-hopping around Langkawi's 99 islands! Are you aware that Langkawi is made up of almost 100 islands? Now that is something, not even many locals are aware of but now that you know, I bet you're more intrigued to visit the islands.

While on the main island of Langkawi, be sure to include paddy-field and jungle-clad hills in your travel itinerary. It really is one of the adventures you don't want to miss out. Other than that, Langkawi has something else up its' sleeves which is the Langkawi Cable Car and Sky Bridge! The cable car transports visitors up to the peak of Mat Chinchang Mountain where the Langkawi Sky Bridge is located. The Cable Car departs from Oriental Village where there are a whole bunch of other attractions such as a 3-Dimensional art museum (Art in Paradise) and many more! It is your island to explore!

Langkawi main town, Kuah is located on the southeast corner of the island and is the arrival point for most of the ferries. If you are arriving here with high hopes that you will be greeted with white sandy beaches, you are looking at the wrong side of beach, buddy! Truthfully, Pantai Cenang and Pantai Tengah stretch is the way to go. Kuah is a town which sits on reclaimed land and the waterfront sadly looks like a murky and mucky strip. Ships come and go here. 

However, with that being said, Kuah has its own charms. The town has many excellent duty-free stores selling everything like we have mentioned earlier: chocolates, tobacco, alcoholic beverages, perfumes and more.  You can shop these in Teow Soon Huat Duty Free zone. Or if you wish to buy the local products and produces, such as Gamat, Rice Mask, and more, you can stroll like locals in Pekan Rabu.

The iconic Eagle Square, where the large eagle statue is located on a waterfront plaza nearby Kuah town. It is a must-place visit for all you selfies-junkies to snap enough photo for the memories. See, there's always things to do here in Kuah. It's not all murky and bland town and jetty isn't it?

While we are on the subject, let us feast you with the best hotel Langkawi in Kuah. We compiled together with photos and locations for your convenience.
