The best duty-free outlets in Langkawi are found within the island’s most prominent towns, namely Kuah and Pantai Cenang. Langkawi’s duty-free shopping scene is the next best reason to visit after its expansive beaches and verdant mountains. Great for shopping enthusiasts, these venues stock a wide range of tobacco products, liquors, chocolates, sportswear, luggage, perfumes, and kitchenware, among other items.

    Not only can you find discounts between 25% and 75% from popular brands, Langkawi’s most popular shops for duty-free goods also offer additional discounts during annual celebrations and if you’re buying in bulk. While it’s easy to get caught up in the savings potential of duty-free shopping, do check your home country’s regulations for any purchase limitations or tax surcharges. Read on to learn more about the best duty-free shops in Langkawi.
