Langkawi

Hello!

Could someone please advise the best way to get from Sepilok to Langkawi.

I’ve heard there is a ferry? Anyone know the price?

Is it much easier to fly?

Also how many nights is good on Langkawi with my 11 year old? Could you fill 7 days and is there plenty of snorkeling to do there?

Sorry 1 more question, can you do the turtle trip from here?

Thank you so much!

Hi

There is no snorkelling from any of the beaches around the island so if that is important to you, then better look elsewhere and there is no turtle trip from the island.

Google the ferry schedule and also check flights with AirAsia and the other cheap carriers, which will be easier than travelling overland and then the ferry.

Do you mean Sepilok in Sabah on the island of Borneo?? Have you looked at a map? You won't get a ferry so the only way to get from one island to the other is to fly.

Thank you

Yes I googled it and it said you could get a ferry but it’s packed with people.

The flights seem to go all the way back to KL so I was confused.
