I understand from reading previous itinerary that cab can be book per hour basis.. How much is their rates? Are there any GRAB services in Langkawi? Is it recommended? Do appreciate your opinion on my itinerary.. Thank you again for taking your time. Looking forward to your opinion..

Hi, day-1 is okay but you need to time Underwater World and Laman Padi properly. On day-2 fitting in three attractions in the 2nd half is difficult... you can skip field of burnt rice. On day-3 keep in mind that you need to reach Kilim Jetty by 4pm to take the mangrove tour... so take early lunch and set off for wildlife park. Grabcar is available but not many... so better not to depend on that. Normal taxis will cost around RM120 for 4 hours.

Thanks for your service. Appreciate your selfless help to all travelers. We are a couple visiting only for 2 days

Take a cab to drop bags at Nadia's hotel if check in is not allowed
Take a cab to visit sky bridge

Please suggest if this is too much for 2 days. We are 56 , 50 couple , so no adventure as I have knee and back pain. But We can walk 5 to 7 miles a day without any issue. Thanks

Thank you for assisting us in our itinerary earlier. We just returned from Langakwi few days back. Overall I would say it was and awesome trip and hassle free. Our accommodation could have been better, nevertheless I would not expect much from a 3 star hotel either. Our transportation throughout the journey was via a 10 seater Langkawi Taxi, overall cheaper then expected, we had a good & accommodating driver, he was spontaneous in arranging & deciding on the places we should go day by day.
Our itinerary was not entirely like how we've planned as there's some timing hiccups and travelling with kids means we have to accommodate to their needs first before everything else. Nevertheless we cover most of the major tourist attractions i would say..
1st day : After checking in @ 3pm
Late lunch @ Cenang Mall
Kuah Town, Eagle Square
Night Market @ Kuah Town
Back to Hotel
2nd day : Raining whole day till 5pm
Wildlife Park (Quite well sheltered, thus the rain doesnt really bother us // Kids enjoy feeding the animals)
Lunch @ near wildlife park (15mins drive out)
Langkawi Handicraft Centre
Crocodile Adventure (Very educational // Kids enjoy feeding the baby crocodiles)
Dinner @ Cenang Beach Area
Back to Hotel
Mangrove - 2 hours boat tour (sufficient for kids to sightseeing)
Lunch @ Oriental Village
Skycab // Sky Bridge
3D Art Museum
Dinner @ Restaurant near our hotel
Back to hotel
I would definitely come back to visit Langkawi... Thank you again for your awesome insight on Langkawi, it was very beneficial. Cheers!!!

I had gone through your previous itinerary replies. Was very knowledge-full. I have planned a visit to Langkawi with family (2 adult 1 child 9 years) (3rd Feb 2020 to 5th Feb 2020). My flight will reach LGK around 9.55 AM, as the hotels will not allow early check in. Where do I need to go first for sightseeing? Visiting Oriental village, Sky bridge is it fine? Also, I am planning to visit main attractions like Eagle square, Under water world, Cenang beach, 3D museum, Island Hopping, Corocdile feeding, Kilim Geopark, Mat Chinchang mountain etc., of course shopping too. But I am not able to plan how or where to start to complete all the locations as I have planned the trip alone without operator.
Kindly give a hand to arrange the trip. Regards

Hi, go to Oriental village first because it has adequate facilities including food, toilets etc, so you won't have problems spending a few hours (assuming you will hire a taxi for few hours and keep the luggage in the boot). At Oriental Village, do the Cable Car ride, Sky Bridge, 3D Art Museum etc (note that Cable Car takes you to the top of Mat Cincang). Have your lunch and get back to Hotel. In the second half you can plan to visit Underwater World and from there you can walk down to Cenang Beach.
On Day-2 you can do Kilim Geopark in the morning and visit Crocodile Farm later. In the evening you can go down to Kuah to visit Eagle Square and do some shopping. On Day-3 you can do Island Hopping in the morning and keep the second half free.
