Drive and Enjoy the View

Driving to the Jetty Terminal is fun and exciting. You can enjoy lots of beautiful scenery along the quiet North-South Expressway. It's a toll-road and the toll price depends on the distance and the type of car.

The speed limit on the highway is 110 km/hour, but on some parts it may be 90 km/hour. If you are getting tired, you can always stop and rest at the rest stops along the highway. You can find food outlets, petrol stations, phones, children's playground and toilets there.

The journey by road from Kuala Lumpur takes about six hours to Kuala Kedah and seven hours to Kuala Perlis. After reaching Kedah - look for the sign "Alor Setar Selatan" and "Langkawi" and get off the highway. Then, leave your car safely at the car park for RM15.00 a day.

You can bring your car over to the island but it's only worth the trouble (and the money) if you spend a week or more. There is a cargo ferry that operates from Kuala Kedah to Tanjung Lumbung in Langkawi. The cargo ferry leaves around 11.00am and charges from RM100 to RM180 per car (based on car model). It takes one day to arrive. You can only retrieve your car the next day at Tanjung Lumbung.

Take a Bus

From Singapore, Johor and Kuala Lumpur, there're buses running daily to Alor Setar / Kuala Kedah. Please contact local bus operators for more information.
