Langkawi may not be known for its extravagant nightlife, but there are many opportunities to burn the midnight oil if one knows where to look.

            Much of the available nightlife on the island is centered around hotels and restaurant.  Restaurants will many times offer live entertainment.  Traditional dancing performances and great music are tourist favorites.  These types of shows are not available at all hotels and restaurants, nor are they offered every night of the week, so make sure to ask the hotel front desk attendant for detailed information. 

            There are numerous bars around the island, which can be quite enjoyable. Sunbar at pantai tengah, Seashell Cafe at Burau Bay for example, hosts a live band that plays every night except mondays.  They know a wide range of songs and are very entertaining. Live music is played at most of the resorts.  Visit Live Entertainment for a list of establishments offering live music on a regular basis. 

            A handful of nightclubs can be found on Langkawi, which are the best bets for staying up late.  Some offer karaoke and some chest thumping music, The Grand Continental in Kuah for example,  but a good time is to be had.  For a list of these clubs visit Langkawi Late Night .

            The island also offers themed bars, cafes, cocktail bars and even beer gardens.  For a list of available establishments, visit Nightlife in Langkawi .
