If you’re looking to travel in beautiful Malaysia on a budget, the state of Kedah has a lot of inexpensive options simply waiting for you. If you plan ahead and are smart, traveling in Kedah doesn’t have to be an expensive experience. Langkawi, which is one of Kedah’s premier attractions, is particularly rich in affordable choices for enthusiastic travelers.
Budget Shopping For Everything
Picturesque Langkawi (which is also called “Langkawi the Jewel of Kedah) is a great destination for people who don’t want to spend a lot of money on shopping. If you love shopping but detest the steep prices that you often encounter on your travels, never fear. Langkawi is a hub for budget-friendly duty-free shopping choices. If you’re searching for souvenirs, electronics, shoes, attire, for example, you’ll have the time of your life shopping in Langkawi. Finding discounts on these types of products is generally extremely easy. Be sure to stop by the archipelago’s many bustling shops and markets. They’re practically impossible to miss.
Transportation in Langkawi doesn’t have to be expensive, either. The archipelago’s public transportation is extremely reliable and efficient. Most importantly, it’s typically safe and reasonably priced. If you want some nice independence in your Kedah travels, you might want to consider reserving a small vehicle for yourself. These are called “kancils.” Since these cars are equipped with petrol that should last for roughly two to three days, you don’t have to worry about filling them up initially. Motorcycle and bicycle hire are yet two more inexpensive transportation options in Kedah. Since Langkawi taxis are often rather costly, these all make suitable, practical and comfortable alternatives.
Accommodations in Langkawi are also usually rather inexpensive. If you want to visit Kedah without worrying about exorbitant hotel rates, Langkawi is the perfect destination for you. The area’s budget hotels are generally clean, comfortable and friendly, with all the basic amenities guests need to relax and unwind. Some of the hotels even feature exciting perks such as fitness centers and swimming pools. Note that Langkawi isn’t the only place in Kedah that has inexpensive choices in accommodations. Kulim is a southeastern Kedah city that also is home to several affordable hotels. One hotel in Kulim that fits this description is the brightly-colored red and white Tune Hotel.
Eating in Langkawi doesn’t have to cost travelers a lot of money at all, thankfully. Lively Pantai Cenang in Langkawi is a hub for inexpensive — yet absolutely delicious — small dining establishments. If you’re in Pantai Cenang and concerned about food prices, look for family-run establishments that have local specialty meals on their menus. Although these dishes taste fabulous and have authentic local flair, the prices are low and geared toward hungry travelers in the area. Many of these dining establishments serve local and Western menu items alike. Some of these restaurants are even conveniently open for business 24 hours a day — a great bonus for tired travelers who are jet-lagged and craving something quick and filling to eat.
