Took ferry from Georgetown to Langkawi and it was cheap. It looks a bit dodgy but is definitely seaworthy. Take the express at 8-30 am for 66 MYR one way. Trip takes under 3 hours. We had smooth seas so it was a good trip. No food or drink available so bring your own. Air condition is set to freezing... More

Ferry from penang to langkawi was comfortable and quick. Enough time to watch a movie and a half. Remember to bring jacket as it can get chilly.

It took about 1 and a half hour from Kuala Kedah to Langkawi. I sat left hand side and in front of ferry. I felt sea sick and need to stand behind the ferry, ferry was full at that day. Need to sit behind and middle of ferry for those who have sea sick like me.

The ferry ride to Langkawi was good, There was a high swell closer about half way across but unless you have a very weak stomach or get motion sickness then it won't bother you. If you get a taxi from the ferry terminal make sure you negotiate the price first.

Read a lot of the bad reviews beforehand and was a little worried. Don't get sea sick but bought tablets anyway after reading the reviews. Took them, slept the whole journey, no issues. In regards to safety, I wasn't that concerned but they do put all the luggage on the floor next to the door. You can't go outside but... More

My husband and I thought it would be a fun way to get from Penang to Langkawi as we have caught enough planes! A few tips: - if you booked online make sure you collect your actual ticket prior to entering the terminal. - we were advised that you can purchase motion sickness medicine at the terminal - no such...

We took the ferry from Penang to Langkawi and it took about 3 hours. We couldn't go outside, so that really sucks for someone that has motion sickness. The boat it self was really fast and stable, so I didn't feel the waves a lot (thank god). The sitting area was also nothing special (4 people per row).

Last 3 years I visit langkawi using ferry no problem. You just wait about half an hour. But last year I re-visited langkawi using same transportation, i wait around 2 and half-hours at the jetty to get the ferry.The waiting hour is longer compared to the journey that is around 1 hour. But during the journey using ferry you may... More
