My Trip to Langkawi Island on September 2010

We spent our holiday at Langkawi Island (Pulau in Malay) on September this year (2010) during the Hari Raya holidays. That was about 1 hour 30 minutes drive from Butterworth to Kuala Kedah Jetty (N6 06.388 E100 17.397). The journey was smooth and relax on the NSE...

We parked our car at the Gated Parking Area (N6 06.380 E100 17.412) in front of the Jetty building which cost MYR15.00 per day (the area will be total lock after midnight). It's looks safe to me...There were many peoples around the Jetty area offer cheaper parking rate at other area, but that seems like no confidence for me!

The Ferry fees was MYR23.00 for adult and MYR17.00 for children for one way with 'seat number'. The journey will take 1 hour and 30 minutes from Kuala Kedah to Kuah, Langkawi Island. The interval is one hour, that's mean there will be ferries from Kuala Kedah to Kuah Langkawi on every hour from 7am - 7pm daily. There are a few counters at the Jetty, but only one was open when we were there...

Too bad, we were not on this LADA One ferry, our ticket stamped 'Coral Island 3' which was parked at the other side of the Jetty.

The Coral Island 3 ferry be able to take almost 200 passengers on board.

After about 180 minutes, I saw the land! I don't really like the feeling when sailing in the middle of the sea! Haha!

The Beautiful islands and the granite formation of the islands

Once we reached the Jetty of Kuah - Langkawi Island, I noticed this beautiful scene on my right...The Royal Langkawi Yacht Club. Look at the clear Blue Sky and the Emerald Ocean!

The Kuah's Jetty is in the Jetty Point Shopping Complex where you can shop for Souvenirs, but we just gave a pass on it! Once you exit the complex, there was another small building in front of it, where all the Travel Booths located. I was searching around for the good bargain car rental along the travel booths...

At last we rented the RED Proton Iswara from one of the booths named Auntie Travel & Tours Sdn Bhd for 2 days - MYR130.00 after bargained. (Advise to rent the car at the Jetty Point Langkawi for better bargain, Not from the Kuala Kedah Jetty or even online). The car rental from them all are provided with Legal Permit (photo below).  
Please rent your car with Caution! There were many peoples who came and approached us for car rental but MOST of them are illegal! You will get into Troubles when facing a Police Road Block within the island, and we don't want to waste our time too! Just pay a little bit more to avoid all the unnecessary problem!

Advise : Please be extra careful while looking for car rental at Langkawi Island. The rental cars without the permit will cost about 20% cheaper but you might end up with troubles and wasting your precious time! I cannot understand why the the Authority does Not take any action on it!

So once we got our transport, we visited the Eagle Square of Langkawi Island just located beside the Jetty Point Complex (walking distance).

YES! We had landed on the Island Of Eagle - Langkawi!!

And we started our Adventure after check-in to the Grand Continental Hotel at Kuah, Pulau Langkawi.
