About Langkawi

Langkawi, described as the ‘Isle of Legends’ and ‘Jewel of Kedah’, is one of the world’s great paradise island getaways. A magnet for international eco-tourism, Langkawi was designated a Global Geopark by UNESCO. It is home to numerous tourist attractions and luxury hotels, yet it also retains its ‘old Malaysia’ charm.

Langkawi is the main island in an archipelago of 99 islands in the Andaman Sea situated off the coast of Peninsular Malaysia. Part of the Malaysian state of Kedah, it lies south of Thailand and east of Indonesian Sumatra.

Getting There

By far the easiest way to travel to Langkawi is by air. Langkawi International Airport is a small but modern airport that lies in the west of the island, next to the sea with all necessary facilities, numerous car rental companies, tour agencies and restaurants.

Dress Code

Business attire is the official dress code during PTM2018 business sessions. Dress code for evening social functions, unless otherwise specified within the programme, is smart casual attire or national costume.

Official Language

Standard Malay is the official language and is used in formal occasions. English is widely spoken and understood by the locals. Most natives speak a Langkawi variant of Kedah Malay with minorities speaking Chinese, Siamese and various Indian languages.

Time

Standard Time is 8 hours ahead of Greenwich Mean Time (GMT+8).

Religion

Langkawi is predominately made up of Malays who are Muslims. There is, however, a small percentage of Buddhists, Hindus and Christians on the island and most religious holidays are celebrated.

Climate

Langkawi receives more than 2,400 mm. of rain annually and has a true dry season from December until February while March to November is a long raining season. September is the wettest month, when it normally receives more than 500 mm.

Currency

Ringgit is the official currency, but some hotels and resorts do accept other notes or offer foreign exchange. The current exchange rate is around RM3.70 to USD. Kuah town and the airport is where you will find most of the banks and money-changers. Banks open daily from 09:30 to 15:30. On Thursdays, they are open from 09:30 to 12:00 and are closed on Saturdays.

Telephone

The country code for Malaysia is +60, the area code for Langkawi is (04). This country code, along with the area code, is required to call a telephone number in Malaysia from another country.
