Recommended Sightseeing Spots at Langkawi

1. Panorama Langkawi SkyCab

One of the top attractions in Langkawi is none other than the Panorama Langkawi SkyCab. Located around 30-minute drive from Kuah, this cable car ride is the steepest on earth and takes visitors up Langkawi’s second highest peak, Mount Mat Chinchang, where the view of the surrounding islands on your way up is simply breath-taking. When you reach the top station at 708 meters above sea level, you can take beautiful panoramic shots of the hillside flora, waterfalls and amazing views of the Andaman Sea. While you are there, take a walk along the famous SkyBridge, a curved pedestrian bridge that is built atop the mountain. This 125-meter bridge was designed as a curved walkway to provide maximised viewing experience for visitors.

2. Cenang Beach

Cenang Beach is hugely popular for its beautiful sandy shores and stunning sunset views. Located just 10-minute drive from the airport, it features white sands and clear waters, great for visitors who love sunbathing (sun beds can be rented for a few ringgit) and water sports such as swimming, skiing and parasailing. At night, the beach becomes one of the most happening places on the island, with plenty of beachfront bars and lounges, as well as live music and cultural performances until late.

3. Tanjung Rhu Beach

Located at the northern coast area on the island, Tanjung Rhu is approximately 21 km (30-minute drive) away from the airport. Ranked as one of the best beaches in Langkawi with clear waters and a vast array of marine life, it is the perfect location for those who love snorkelling or diving. The beach is well secluded and is not as crowded as Cenang Beach, providing a peaceful and relaxing atmosphere for visitors who appreciate serenity and calmness. There are fewer local stalls here to maintain its non-polluted state and preserve its beauty. Tanjung Rhu Beach’s exclusiveness is further enhanced by being home to luxury hotels such as Four Seasons Resorts and Tanjung Rhu Resort.

4. Underwater World Langkawi

If you are an animal lover, or travelling with children, Underwater World Langkawi is not to be missed! Said to be one of the largest in Southeast Asia, Underwater World Langkawi is located conveniently close to Cenang Beach and showcases a range of animals found in tropical rainforests, temperate and even sub-Antarctic regions. One of the highlights is the “Penguin-arium”, a huge section featuring cute little African and Rockhopper penguins! There is also a 15-meter-long tunnel under the seawater aquarium, allowing you to look eye to eye with some interesting sea creatures. The best part is; Underwater World Langkawi was built to create awareness on the importance of preserving our oceans – it does not offer any unethical activities that could harm the animals such as animals performing tricks or offering animal rides. Supporting such establishment is crucial as it helps to maintain the attraction, while ensuring the animals consistently receive proper feed and care.

Basic Information on Langkawi

1. Getting Around

Langkawi does not have a public bus service, therefore most tourists would just rent a car or a motorcycle to move around the island. Always ensure that you have the proper driving licence requirements and documentations before you rent any vehicle. You can also use the taxi services or download e-hailing apps such as Grab Malaysia or MyCar and travel worry-free within the island.

2. Language

The residents in Langkawi generally speak Malay. However, being a popular island destination in Malaysia, English is widely spoken and understood by locals too so you do not have to worry about any language barriers. It is, however, recommended to learn basic Malay if you are heading towards any rural areas or speaking to the older generation. Like other countries in the world, speaking at least some local phrases or attempting to learn the language will be appreciated by the locals.

3. Religion

Almost 90% of the population in Langkawi are Muslims. Therefore, like any place in Malaysia, it is important to remember some of the do’s and dont’s while touring the country. As a foreigner, you do not have to dress in traditional clothing. However, it is advisable to avoid wearing revealing clothes to avoid unwanted attention. When visiting religious places such as mosques and temples, it is highly recommended to dress modestly. Removing your shoes is also required before entering these holy places. You must also know that non-Muslims are not allowed to enter a mosque during prayer time although it is okay to stand outside and look around.

4. Tipping

Tipping is not mandatory as service charges are usually included in the bills. Generally, the service charge rate is around 10%. However, although tipping is not expected, any extra tipping from foreigners to the services provided by the locals will often be greatly appreciated.

5. Safety

Langkawi residents are generally known to be friendly and very laid-back. Nevertheless, it is advisable to avoid unnecessary exposure of valuable and expensive items in crowded areas. Like any other tourist spots, petty crimes, such as pick pocketing or bag snatching may happen therefore always exercise caution on your valuables.

6. Smoking

Working towards a smoke-free generation in Malaysia, Langkawi adhere strongly to the laws to establish more smoke-free zones. Smoking is strictly prohibited in public transportation, all eateries, government buildings, airports, entertainment centres, theatres, elevators and other public spaces. Any violation in this act can be treated as a punishable offense with a fine or jail.

7. Drinking Water

The water from the tap is not for direct consumption, even if the water is from the bathroom faucet in your hotel room. You are encouraged to purchase bottled water. In addition, when you purchase any bottled water, make sure that the seal is not broken. Inspect these seals before making any purchases from a local store.
