Welcome to the Duty Free Island of Langkawi :)
Say whhhaatttt ???? Yes, you heard that correct. Langkawi is a Duty free Island wherein there is absolutely no import duty on the products.
Langkawi is part of an enclave of 104 islands and is the most popular one for Shopping and all things touristy like watching serene sunsets sipping margarithas, Island hoping and picnics, exploring lush tropical Rain forests and taking evening walks on the secluded beaches makes this an absolute favourite with Travellers who love to explore without an itinerary.
The only local transport is that of cabs and its expensive. So the best way to explore the island is by Renting out a bike from the airport itself . Prices start at about MYR 16 (approx 1000 Rupees) per day.
PRO TIP : Since we were in no mood to drive and It was raining crazy the day we arrived so instead we used UBER and it was fantastic and cheap. So I would recommend using UBER and guess what, its available 24*7.
