Cheap areas to stay in Langkawi

Langkawi is a sun seeker’s paradise. Based in the deep blue ocean off Malaysia’s west coast, this jungle-clad island, surrounded by small pearly islets, offers seemingly endless beachfront – as well as a wealth of affordable hotels. For total travel convenience, stay in one of the cheap hotels near the main airport. The main Kuah town – bouncing with bars, restaurants, and street markets – is also a top spot for cheap hotels. The inland Padang Matsirat area, at the island’s heart, sings with inexpensive getaways surrounded by tranquil greenery.

Where to find cheap food in Langkawi

Langkawi boasts a bounty of cheap eats. In the main town of Kuah – and on most of the main beaches – you can sample traditional and cheap Malay street cuisine from outdoor food vendors, favorites include steamed rice drenched in coconut milk and fried chili squid. Kuah also offers a selection of affordable cafés serving up western and Malay dishes. If you’re keen to try some of Langkawi’s local seafood in a sit down restaurant with sweeping ocean views, the Pantai Tengah beach offers plenty at very reasonable prices.

Cheap things to do in Langkawi

It doesn’t cost a dime to lounge around in Langkawi’s honey-like sunshine and watch the foaming waves lapping the shore. Many of Langkawi’s most paradisal beaches are totally free – from the developed stretch of Cenang Beach in the southwest, which is sprinkled with adjacent bars, restaurants, and boutiques, to the limestone caves and tree-capped outcrops of Pantai Kok beach, in the northwest. Outdoor adventurers can enjoy plenty of inexpensive Langkawi excursions, like the Telaga Tujuh Waterfalls. This series of natural waterfalls, cascading down sheer nickel-colored rock face, are based in the western headlands, and can be accessed by hiking or biking – at the base of the falls, you can bathe in tranquil, fresh pools. If you’re looking for a true taste of local Langkawi culture, visit the buzzing Kuah night market.

Best ways to get around Langkawi

Langkawi doesn’t offer much in the way of public transport, though you will find that taxicabs are relatively inexpensive – on landing on the island, you can book a taxicab at the airport and cruise to your hotel. If you plan to do plenty of exploring through the waterfall-cut mountains and lagoon-specked jungles, it’s cheapest to hire your own vehicle – scooters are a popular, fun, and cheap choice. If you plan to spend all your time beside your beachfront hotel, you might make do on foot alone.
