Taxis are available in abundance and they are the most popular and convenient transport in the island. However the flip side is, they are quite expensive compared to the other modes. A 15 minutes ride on a taxi can cost you RM18. But you get taxis almost everywhere – at the airport, ferry terminal, main tourist places, several taxi stands, and you can also stop a vacant taxi on the road and get in. Check out Langkawi Taxis to know about the service, fares, rules and reserving a taxi for tours.
By Car Rentals
This is another great option if you know driving and can manage Left Hand Drive. If you plan to tour around the island, a car rental can be much more economical than a taxi. Driving in Langkawi is also easy and the roads are scarcely populated. There are plenty of car rentals available in the island. Check out Langkawi Car Rentals to know the do’s & don’ts, the best rental companies, rental rates etc.
There is no public bus service in Langkawi unless a coach is chartered by a private group.
By Motorbikes, Scooters & Bicycle Rentals
You can rent two wheelers in the island. Scooters and motorbikes usually come for RM25-40 a day depending on number of days you are renting whereas a bicycle rental would be about RM15 a day. You are required to wear a helmet by law and it is provided by the rental agency. You will also need a valid two wheeler license for renting scooters, motorbikes and even mopeds. Your own country’s license should be fine. There is hardly any checking for the licenses by the police unless you meet with an accident. There is a small security deposit taken by most rental agencies.
