Hi

You will find that Langkawi is more expensive than Phuket for good accommodation, meals and trips.

Things such as alcohol and cigs are cheap in Langkawi as it is a duty free island however, there are some places on the island where you can get a reasonably good low price meal.

Langkawi is nothing at all like Phuket so if that is your hope then you will be disappointed.

Langkawi is generally more expensive then Phuket, but it's much more relaxing and you don't get the people on the side of the road hassling you to buy things. I also found the food to be of a much better quality. Personally I enjoyed Langkawi a lot more than Phuket, and there are still some bargains to be found in terms of accommodation (especially if you book early), tours are very reasonable and markets/street food are also still very cheap (and good!) in Langkawi.

Good luck with your trip planning!

we also find the food in general better in langkawi than in phuket. food on the pasar malam [night market] is very safe and extremely cheap, if you are going there.

Hi mick done Langkawi now in Phuket.Absolutely loved Langkawi Found prices pretty good.We stayed at Federal villa in Pantai Tengul and found taxis although older cars were pretty cheap honest and reliable.If you want tto hire a car if you spend a lot of time there you will find out that it is like a coastal town small coastal town with one lane going each way.Found food was pretty cheap as well we ate in a restaurant called Old town with really good prices and a small restaurant called cactus across the road from Fed. Villa.Found the beach at Pantai Tengul a beautiful place. Hope u enjoy your holiday
