Enjoy Malaysian paradise with a Langkawi car rental

Nothing short of a tropical wonderland, Langkawi is a breath of fresh air from its capital big brother, Kuala Lumpur. Technically an archipelago, this collection of 104 scattered islands offers phenomenal views, unforgettable sunsets, ample relaxation time and scenery, and exhilarating natural attractions. The main island of Langkawi alone is worth traveling for, and with a hire car from GoSee handy, you can explore every crevice of this gem in unrivaled comfort.

Info on Langkawi International Airport 

Situated on the main island of Langkawi is The Langkawi International Airport (LGK), which welcomes over 2 million people each year. Chances are, if you are flying in from other cities in Malaysia, you are likely to land here.

The airport is modest but has several great stores, bars, and restaurants to keep you busy and stocked for your trip through this magnificent island. You can also enjoy free WiFi throughout the airport.

Once you are done with shopping and dining and have your baggage in hand, you can book car rental services from any of the many agency kiosks in the arrival hall.

Pre-book a hire car in Langkawi with GoSee, and you’ll be able to pick up your car the moment you arrive, without any hassles or delays.

The great news is, once you have your car hire, you’re basically good to go, as Langkawi Airport is almost in the heart of the island already.

Best times to visit Langkawi in a hire car

Being a tropical wonderland usually comes with a price—heavy and unpredictable rainfall, severe weather changes, and overbearing heat. 

The good news? None of these seem to exist in Langkawi. Sure, it can get hot, but that can easily be avoided by coming to Langkawi anytime from November to March. These months tend to be a little colder, more pleasant, and receive the least gray clouds and rainfall.

Getting around in your Langkawi car rental 

Thanks to its laid-back nature and relatively non-congested roads, driving through Langkawi doesn't present too many opportunities for traffic.  

There are several drawbacks due to its infrastructure though, so pay attention to these important driving tips:  

  • Avoid back roads when driving your rental car in Langkawi. They can be very narrow and can get very muddy and slippery after rainfall.
  • Animals are a constant hazard as they freely roam from farmland and across roads, so always be vigilant. 
  • Do not drive at night. With many animals present and minimal lighting, you can easily find yourself in a tricky situation.
  • Be extra careful driving through rain, as cars can often slide during a sharp turn. 
  • You must always drive on the left-hand side of the road. Be especially careful when turning or forming a circle to stay on the left side of the road.

Make the most of this tropical wonderland 

It might be missing the nightlife of Kota Kinabalu, but this alluring archipelago is rich with natural serenity, exciting adventurous activities, gorgeous sunsets, and its fair share of fantastic dining options and bars, too. 

Here are just a few of our favorites: 

Adventure & Activities  

SKYTREX Adventure Langkawi

A must-do for daredevils, thrill-seekers, and nature lovers alike. Clip-on and zip through exhilarating rainforest zip lines, or challenge yourself through three levels of different ropes courses. 

Langkawi Skybridge Cable Car

One of the major attractions of Langkawi, packed with features like a thrilling sky bridge, 3D art museum, and much more.

Galaxy Family Karaoke

You haven’t experienced South East Asia if you haven’t had a night of tipsy (or dead sober) karaoke singing. And this is a great place to do it. 

Recreation Park Lubuk Semilang

Beautiful tropical trees, expansive relaxing areas, a delicious fruit buffet and fruit straight from the trees are all on offer in this nifty park. 

Natural Attractions  

Temurun Waterfall

Kilim Geoforest Park

Kilim is the name of this gorgeous mangrove featuring wild sights, a bat cave, and other natural goodness.

Gunung Raya

Right in the center of the island is a giant peak for hiking, wildlife views, and unforgettable sunsets. Great mobile reception, too! 

Cave des Chauve-souris

The French made it here, too apparently. But inside this cave is where the fun really happens, with plenty of bats, fishes, and monkeys roaming inside and out. 

If you are done with your Langkawi car hire holiday, why not try a different destination like Kuala Lumpur and complete your Malaysia adventure? Renting vehicles with GoSee is so simple and secure. No booking fees and no hidden charges!
