Langkawi Itineraries - Part VI

Hi Raj, 
I must commend what a great and informative site to us all. We are a family of 4 (2Adult 2Children). I am planning the itinerary for a 4day 3 nights. 
Day 1 
Check into a hotel in Kuah about 4.30pm. 
Eagle Square 
Evening shopping 
(Any other places of interest I can cover before dinner time?) 
Day 2 
Check out from hotel in Kuah. 
Mahsuri Mausoleum 
Underwater World 
(Any suggestion of places of interest before we check in to Hotel in Pantai Kok? Seven Wells? Craft Centre? Black Sand beach?) 
Day 3 
Kilim Geopark Boat Tour (2-3 hours) 
(not sure what to plan after the boat mangrove tour? Also not sure if Galeria Perdana near Kilim jetty?) 
Day 4 
Cable Car 
Check out sometime noon 
Departure 4pm. 
Considering car rental versus taxi. Possible not for 1st day. How much would a taxi ride cost, say from Kuah to Cenang? 
Considering it is fasting month, will most restaurants (except non Muslim) be closed? 
Thanks and regards,

On day1, first visit Lagenda park and then walk to Eagle square. Check if night market sets up on day1 at Kuah, if so then visit there in the evening. 
Visit seven wells on day2 (it's in Pantai kok area, and will take time to walk all the way up to the top). 
Galeria Perdana is quite close to Kilim Jetty and you can easily visit that after your geopark tour. 
Many restaurants will be open during the month. You can find taxi fares between various points on my page on taxis.

Hi Raj, 
Came across your awesome site while looking for information about Langkawi. We are reaching Langkawi on 13th August at 9 PM and will be leaving to KL on 16th at 12.30 PM. I have few questions: 
1. How is the weather in Langkawi in August does it rain heavily? 
2. On day 2 i.e. 14th(Sunday) we are planning for Oriental village/cablecar/3D museum. Can i also cover the island hopping the same day? We are staying in a hotel in Pantai Cenag. 
3. Day 3 i.e. 15th, we are planning to cover mangrove tour (half day), eagle square , beaches and squeeze in some time for shopping as well. Is this plan realistic? 
4. Day 4 we have a flight at 12.30, is there something we can cover on that day ? Shopping may be? 
Thanks and look forward to your reply. 
Neha (August 2016) 
Check my weather page under 'How' menu option for August weather. Day2 is doable - start Island hopping by 9am and plan to take a quick lunch. Day3 is also doable. Plan your shopping at the airport on the day of departure.

Raj ( August 2016 
Hi Raj, 
I would be grateful if you could quickly review and suggest changes if any. We are a group of 8 arriving in Langkawi on 1st Jan 2017 
01-Jan - Checkin at De Baron Resort Kuah around 3 PM, kindly let us know your view on the venue, visit Eagle Square and explore the town in the evening 
02- Jan - Cable Car and Sky bridge and Sky Dome in the morning followed by exploring Oriental village, will we have time to do island hopping after this? 
03-Jan - Mangrove Geo Park tour 
04-Jan - what activities can we cover before checkout at 12:00 PM 
Could you please suggest beaches close by to the locations we are visiting, that should not be missed..? hugely appreciate your time and advise. 
Thanks &áRegards, 
Wilfred (October 2016) 
Baron group hotels are nice. This one too is a good hotel and the location is good too. Great views of water. But there are no public beaches in Kuah. Nearest ones would in Pantai Cenang (the Cenang beach) or even Pantai Tengah - an easy taxi ride, about 20 minutes. Cenang beach is the most popular and picturesque one while tengah is quieter. 
You are unlikely to have time left for Island Hopping on day-2 (last boat usually leaves by 4pm). On day-4 you can make a quick visit to Atma Alam Batik Village, or Air Hangat Village (hot spring) or Complex Craft &áFaizy Crystals (you also get the Shark Bay Beach here which is quite nice) etc depending on your interest. Laman Padi (rice museum) is also an option.

Hi, your itinerary is nice. You can add seven wells waterfall on day-2. Lagenda Park is next to Eagle Square, so visit on the last day. You can visit Galeria Perdana on day-1 or last day, or even on day-3 if you finish off the day early.

Hi, all day3 activities may not be possible unless you take a short mangrove tour in the morning. Order of activity in Day2 should be changed. Do cable car first. Rest all are near each other. Cable car - island hopping - underwater world - cenang beach.

Hi, you can't fit in other activities without making the plan hectic. So let it be the way it is. For lunch on arrival, you can have it at Oriental Village where there are several restaurants. You can find that information in the page below: 
For eating out while in the island, you can refer to the following page and select restaurants of budget or mid-range category for a location and cuisine of your choice:

Hi, good plan. On day1, start by 3pm, first visit Air Hangat Village (hot spring) or Batik Village depending on your interest, then Eagle Square. Walk down to the nearby Lagenda Park - nice parkland with many sculptures depicting the legends of Langkawi. In the evening, you can do some shopping at Kuah if you want before returning to your hotel. 
Rest of your plan is good.
