Kuala Kumpur (LCCT) to Langkawi

Hi

I am reaching Kuala Lumpur LCCT at 00:20 AM, assuming 1 hour for check out I will be ready by 1:30 AM. The cheaper flight to Langkawi is only at 12.45 PM, which is almost half day. So I am planning to prefer bus route from KL (LCCT) to Langkawi.

1. Please suggest the bus route and timing. Is it possible to book the bus online to avoid last minute rushes?

2. How about the trains from LCCT KL to Langkawi

Thanks in advance.

It is better for you to book a hotel room at the Tune (if prices are low) and stay the night.

The connect via either Airasia at LCCT, Malaysia Airlines at the main terminal (KLIA), or take a 40min taxi ride to Subang Airport for Firefly.

You need to understand that Langkawi is an island with no connecting bridge to the mainland, so there are no direct buses or train to Langkawi.

To get to Langkawi by train or bus, you have to heard north to towns with ferry ports. These would be Penang, Kuala Perlis and Kuala Kedah. From there you need to take a ferry over to Langkawi. Note that Penang only operates 2 ferries a day.

To get to the bus you need to take a bus from LCCT to KL Sentral, from there find your way to Puduraya bus station and get a bus from there. Transasional operates two bus services a day from Kuala Lumpur to Kuala Perlis.

To get a train, you need to take a bus from LCCT to KL Sentral and transit to the KTM station. Unfortunatly you need to travel from KL Sentral to Arau, and there is only a night train for that.

Regardless of your choice, you will have to hang out until morning.

Options :

No Choice: Hang out at airport or Tune hotel till morning

Option 1: Bus up North, then ferry to Langkawi (option of ports)

Option 2: Hang out in KL, night train to Arau, ferry to Langkawi

Option 3: Air Asia (LCCT) to Langkawi

Option 4: MAS (KLIA) to Langkawi (830am)

Option 5: Firefly (Subang) to Langkawi (1025am)

Hi

You can't get there any quicker using train or bus. I would stay at the Tune Hotel for the night and then you can have a sleep and shower and catch the 12:45 flight orpay more for a flight or look at alternative flights with another airline.

We've done similar in the past. Snoozed in check in area of airport - suprisingly quiet and comfy!!! Booked a business class flight on MAS. checked in very early - as soon as domestic departures opened ( 5.30 am' ish). Then showered and breakfasted in Golden Lounge. Was a lot cheaper than styaing in a hotel.
