A fast way to go from A to B. Lack of service, Not even possible to buy a drink or anything. Basic form of transport. The rest is up to the ocean ;)

It is a cheap mode of transport however with it costing the same amount to fly from penang to langkawi I would not take the ferry. The boat itself is fine however it is a very rough trip and for the first time in my life I was sea sick despite loving being on boats, there were countless people vomiting... More

took the ferry from penang to langkawi...although the ride was comfortable enough but since all windows are above your head (while sitting down) there is not much to do while the boat is in motion ..the ferry terminal at Langkawi is a great one for shopping duty free.. also to hire cars for trips in the island.

Took the ferry from Kuala Perlis-Langkawi at 9:30 in the morning. I had booked tickets online but later realized that it can be purchased at the terminal too. Carry some warm clothes as it can be freezing if you get a seat near the aircon.

Going to Penang from Langkawi the ferry seems to be the easiest way. It’s cheap and only takes about three and a half hours. You can buy the tickets on the day of your trip at the Kuah ferry terminal. However, don’t imagine some German (European) ferry. It is a middle sized boat with one lower deck and seat rows... More

I travelled on this ferry in March 2014 and I will never repeat the experience. It was dreadful. Cramped accommodation - seats 4 on each side - filthy toilets, and more akin to a sardine can than a ferry. Personally,I would advise anyone to fly to Langkawi from Penang. Much safer, if less pretty. When you arrive in Langkawi from... More

It's basically a ferry that takes you from A to B. You don't see anything because its not taking you to see anything? It's just simply a 3 hour ferry from one island to another at very good value. You don't get the ferry to France and complain you didn't see anything? And you wouldn't get it for RM65 either.... More
