Nearby Airport 

The Langkawi International Airport, located in Padang Matsirat serves the entire Langkawi area. It is connected to major cities like Singapore, Kuala Lumpur, and Guangzhou.

The airport is about 25 minutes away from the city center. Taxis are available at the airport. The fares to get to Kuah Town (Capital of Langkawi District) or Pantai Cecang (most popular beach) maybe around RM 24 while a trip to Pantai Kok (Harbor park) will cost around RM 28.
