We have included this island because it can be easily reached from Koh Lipe by a high-speed ferry. The ferry operates from Bundhaya Resort on Pattaya Beach twice a day from mid-October to the end of May. The trip takes one hour.
Lipe – Langkawi 10:30, 16:30*
Langkawi – Lipe 9:30, 14:30*
A one-way ticket cost 1200 baht for an
adult and 720 baht for a child
*Afternoon departures are only available from October to May.
!Please, make sure that you don’t require a visa to enter Malaysia before the trip. If you overstayed your Thai visa an overstay fine should be paid at an Immigration office in the city of Satun on the mainland prior to departure to Malaysia by ferry.
Once you reach Langkawi take a taxi to Pantai Cenang. That is where most of the hotels are located.
If you want to explore the Island rent a motorbike. It costs anywhere from 300 – 800 Malay Ringgit (approx. 300 – 800 baht) depending on season and size of the engine.
In our opinion, a visit to this restaurant is a must in Langkawi. If you come once you will get addicted and will come for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
Unquestionably, Malay Roti with meat sauce is the best dish.
Another type of food you should try here is Naan. It is a flatbread cooked on walls of a tandoor, an oven shaped like a barrel. Hot walls of a tandoor allow the bread to stick until it is ready. Naan can be cooked with cheese or chicken.
Try the sweet flatbread, a kind of Roti with condensed milk and hot Malay tea with milk for dessert..
We also recommend Roti Canai, a simple flatbread with chicken sauce; Cheese Naan, a flatbread with cheese cooked in the oven; Roti Susu, a flatbread with condensed milk and hot Malay tea.
The place is worth a visit if you like aquariums and zoos. The Park features sea creatures as well as freshwater inhabitants. There is also a Bird Park.
Coming from Koh Lipe to Langkawi by ferry you will certainly notice a sparkling building on the side of a mountain. Once you get closer you will be able to see gondolas moving on the cable. Malays are well-versed in construction of beautiful monumental projects.
The cable car ride split into 2 sections with a total distance traveled of 2.2 km. When you get to the top station you can go up to an observation deck that is located at 708 m above sea-level. There is also an unusual suspension/sky bridge connecting two mountain peaks.
Clouds at the top bring a pleasant relief from the heat and are so close that you feel like you can touch them.
Adina drive in motel
Hotels on Langkawi Island are more expensive. Most of them feature concrete urban buildings rather than tropical bungalows. The hotel Adina has one category of rooms called Star Tropical Chalet built as a small village. The Interior is quite simple but cozy. Houses are built out of wood.
There is a restaurant called Tomato located across the street from the hotel that is worth a visit.
