Langkawi is a holiday destination for tourists that are intent on enjoying an active few days in the warm weather among stunning views. Langkawi Beach is particularly popular with tourists, especially during the summer months; jet skiing is available to the more adventurous traveller, whereas sailing cruises may provide a better option for those just looking to relax. Away from the beach, there are art and craft shops offering local, traditional pieces or for a cheap, productive day out there is Kilim Nature Park relatively close by. A tour group offer the chance to experience the beauty of the park at a leisurely pace with a knowledgeable tour guide.
There is very little of any interest close to the port itself, so it is best advised to get a taxi to any desired destination. There is a taxi rank waiting directly outside the port to pick up passengers – it is possible to negotiate a price for a whole day with a taxi driver for convenient and easy transportation.
