Langkawi's designated Duty Free Port status makes shopping here quite fun and very popular. It carries the largest selection. Enjoying duty free status within Malaysia makes Langkawi a great place to pick up some superb bargains during your holiday, although it is neither as cheap, nor is there as much variety as you will find in Kuala Lumpur. There is a large mall called Langkawi Fair, where you can pick up the best bargains, and one of the best places to go shopping for luxury goods is the Langkawi Parade, where you can browse the high-end boutiques. For souvenir hunting, it's a good idea to wander through the markets along the harbour front and pick up locally produced handicrafts such as Langkawi Craft Complex.

Sailing

Langkawi is fast gaining recognition as a world-class sailing destination. The island's waters are ideal for sailing as distances between islands are short, waters are warm, winds are favourable and there are many quiet sandy bays for mooring, swimming and picnicking.

The island also offers sailing in sheltered inlets as well as on open seas. Because of favourable winds, sailing is best from November to April. Marina facilities too, are second to none.

Telaga Harbour Park Langkawi at Kok Beach is a 32-acre Mediterranean-themed harbour town - the first of its kind in the region.


Stroll along the boardwalk or sip an espresso at alfresco cafés whilst marvelling at the plush mega-yachts and elegant sailboats docked at the marina. After weeks at sea, yachters can drop by the post-office and bank, stock up on groceries and tuck in hearty meals. At night, the town comes alive with bands playing on the sidewalk, lively pubs and brightly lit retail shops.

Developed to cater for sailboats and mega-yachts, as opposed to other marinas in this region, the park has good depth and draft, good astern mooring for yachts 50m long and excellent quality floating docks. Also, the harbour is sheltered from erratic winds and tide conditions.

Other notable marinas include the Royal Langkawi Yacht Club at Kuah, the Awana Porto Malai Langkawi at Tengah Beach, and the Rebak Marina Resort on Rebak Besar Island. All have first-class accommodation with excellent dining, entertainment and shopping.

Held annually in mid-March, the Royal Langkawi International Regatta is a spectacular race organised by the Royal Langkawi Yacht Club. Some 60 yachts with 400 participants were attracted to the inaugural regatta in 2003. Enjoy the fun carnival spirit with dinners, concerts and games as part of the festivities.

Sunsail, the world's largest yacht charter company, and other prestigious boat charters also have bases on the island. They offer sail and cruise options such as sunset dinner cruises, round island tours, honeymoon escapades, and many more.
