Around Langkawi Island in your hire car
Langkawi is an easy island to navigate, which is why it is so ideal for car rental.
There is one long road that completely circumnavigates the island, making it really unlikely that you will get lost.
Even if you do get “lost”, just continue driving and you will find yourself back at your starting point in about an hour…it is that simple!
The roads on the island and well maintained and signage is good.
Remember to keep left, and always wear your seatbelt (mandatory for driver and front passenger).
You do need to drive quite slowly and be on the alert for motorbikes and roaming buffalo!
What to see on the Island
Even if you are in Langkawi primarily for a beach holiday, do make time to drive around and see some of the sights on the island.
The circular road will take you to quaint villages, rubber plantations, mangroves, rain-forests and caves.
Langkawi is steeped in legend and myth – find out about the story behind The Lake of the Pregnant Maiden (myth has it that women who want to conceive should drink the water from this lake), visit the beautiful Seven Wells – a very impressive 91 mt high 7-level waterfall, and visit the Air Hangat hot water spring for another dose of local folklore.
There are also several touristy attractions that you can drive to, including the Night Market, the Oriental Village, Underwater World, the Cable Car and, the jetty for boats to take you to the incredible underwater world of the Payar Island Marine Park, an absolute must for anyone interested in marine life.
When your holiday sadly comes to a conclusion, just head back to Langkawi Airport where you can conveniently drop-off your rental car.
