When is the best time to visit Langkawi?
January to March
January to March is one of the best times to go to Langkawi. It's the dry season, and temperatures hover around 30-34°C; ideal conditions for spending long days in the sun and taking advantage of outdoor activities. These months also offer the best conditions for travellers wanting to use their tickets to Langkawi to explore the nearby dive sites. However, the perfect weather attracts other tourists from around the world. If you have your heart set on buying return flights to Langkawi over this period, make all your reservations well in advance. If you leave your accommodation booking to the last minute, all the best hotels might be booked out.
April to August
For a much more laid back holiday, plan your flights to Langkawi between April and August. It's a shoulder season for the island, and while there are occasional thunderstorms, you'll still have plenty of sunshine. However, you'll need to keep in mind that the holy month of Ramadan does generally fall over these dates. If your airfare to Langkawi coincides with the Islamic holiday, you will find that many local businesses work to changed hours of operation.
September to October
September to October is the low season for Langkawi. If you're on the hunt for cheap flights to Langkawi and hotel deals, keep an eye out for fares over these months. It's the wet season, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t book flights to Langkawi over these months. You’ll need to adjust your itinerary to explore more of the rainforests instead of water-based activities, but there’s more than enough to see and do.
What are the best places to stay in Langkawi?

It’s a 20-minute drive from Langkawi International Airport (LGK) Pantai Cenang is located by the largest beach of the island. There is a stretch of restaurants, hostels, hotels, and beach bars. The area is only a nine-minute drive from Langkawi International Airport (LGK).

Langkawi Sky Bridge and SkyCab Cable Car
The Sky Bridge in Langkawi is the longest free-span and curved bridge in the world. If you want to see it, you'll need to take the SkyCab Cable Car to the top.
