Best way and quickest is to fly from KLIA (45 mins). You could also take the train to Butterworth ...spend a night or two in Penang and travel on to Kuah by ferry.

Just depends on the time you have available.

The train is about 6 hrs and the ferry 3 hrs approx.

Cheapest = Air Asia

http://www.airasia.com

Best/Most comfortable and fastest = Malaysia Airlines

You can check your airfare at the above web sites.

I have taken a bus and train to Kedah and then the ferry to Langkawi and it is a nice journey but takes quite a long time. Also I have paid less to fly Air Asia than I have for the bus or train.

Bus is a great way to see the country but using it round trip can be tiring. If you are interested in the journey I would take a bus there and a flight back or vise versa.
