Singapore to Langkawi via Alor Setar - time?

Hi,

I want to go to Langkawi in mid Feb 2012.

I did some searching on the internet to find that there are buses direct from Singapore to Alor Setar in Kedah. And then a ferry from Alor Setar to Langkawi.

But I could not find the time which the bus & the ferry would take.

Does anyone know?

Anyone knows of a direct bus to Langkawi?

I know a flight is easier, but the timings on the day I want to travel dont suit me!

Thanks,

Dev

1. There is no direct bus to Langkawi since it is an island.

2. There is no ferry terminal at Alor Setar. The city is not located by the sea. From Alor Setar bus terminal, take a cab to Kuala Kedah jetty where ferries are available to Langkawi.

You're in Singapore. Why not phone the bus company and ask them?

I can't answer the whole timing but I've taken the bus from Alor Setar to KL a few weeks ago. It took about 7 hrs with plenty of stops.

12-13 hours on the bus. 1 hour 15 on the ferry. these are minimum times, based on express bus.
