How to get to Langkawi??

Langkawi Island can be reachable by air or by sea. The AirAsia is cheapest while Malaysian Airlines are a little expensive if you are in Kuala Lumpur and want to travel by air.

BY AIR: Less than an hour or about 50 minutes by air. We took AirAsia which cost about RM 48.

BY SEA: If you are in Kuala Lumpur and want to start from here, then you can take a train called the ETS KTM train from KL Sentral to Arau.  The train takes about 5 hours to reach Arau with fares starting from RM 76 for adults and RM 42 for kids. From Arau, reach Kuala Perlis by taxi, which charges about RM 25. The ferry leaves every hour long and it will cost RM 18 for adults and RM 13 for kids one way.

We reached Langkawi from Kuala Lumpur by flight with AirAsia which costs about RM. It was a pretty time saver plus cheap.
