SELF - DRIVE
Car rentals are reasonably priced on Langkawi Island. Pick and choose the rent and if you’re in luck, rents can go as low as RM40 per day during the off-peak season. Combine that with a fairly laid-back traffic, clear road signage and good road conditions, driving in Langkawi can be an adventure on its own.
Please make sure your driver’s licence and insurance policies are up to date. Visitors who can use their existing driver’s licences in Malaysia are those from any country in the Association of South East Asian Nations (ASEAN).
Motorcycles of the low-powered variety are also available for rent – with prices averaging around RM30 per day during the off-peak season. They are still cheaper than renting a car and so much more fun. If you’re into the high-powered superbikes of more than 150cc, you can also rent one of those for about RM500 per day. Do take note, that pricing may vary based on the condition of the motorcycle.
Riding a bike is not that uncommon in Langkawi. Take up one of the many cycling tour packages offered by operators or you can just rent one from the hotel you’re staying in. Enjoy a nice ride through the countryside or to the nearby fishing villages and cycle between old traditional Malay rustic houses. Wherever you end up, find surprising beauty in places normally inaccessible by anything other than a simple bike.
