Taxi from Airport

I read on this forum that a taxi from the Langkawi airport to Pantai Cenang for 5 people is about 24 ringgit.

Can someone please let me know if that is still current. If not what should we be looking at paying? We arrive into Langkawi on Sunday afternoon at about 4.30pm.

thank you

Robyn

Hi again Robin,

Just called the airport taxi counter. The current taxi fare for 5 people is RM27 now. Langkawi should be ready for you by Sunday.

Happy Planning!

Hi,

This is my first trip to langkawi.

Does the taxi run by meter in langkawi or we need to negotiate the price before boarding the taxi.

I read on a website that the Minstry of Tourism, Malaysia recoomends a taxi fare to Sheraton Langkawi (which is near Pantai Cenang area) cost RM15.

Is this recommendation not followed by the taxi drivers?

Please advice.

Thanks.

Norfolk.

Hi

Taxis in Langkawi are fixed fare & the price of RM15 is about right. There is usually no room for bargaining, but at least you know what you have to pay.

I'm not sure if the Sheraton does its own airport transfers so you may want to look into that as well.
