Ipoh to Langkawi flights offer the chance to hop away from the jungle-dressed mainland of the Malay Peninsula and alight on the sun-scorched beaches of Kedah. Lapped by the waters of the Malacca Strait and with all the cotton-white sands and swaying palm trees you'd expect of a destination hailed as a tropical paradise, the archipelago of Pulau Langkawi certainly doesn't disappoint.
If you're looking to book cheap flights to Langkawi from Ipoh then it's a good idea to steer clear of traveling during the major holidaying periods of the region. That includes the mid-May breaks of Singapore, and Malaysia's own school breaks throughout April and May. Meanwhile, the summer months see the beaches and duty-free malls of Langkawi fill up with visitors from the Middle East during July and August, leaving September, October and December some of the cheapest times to look for flights between these 2 traveling hotspots.
The pint-sized Sultan Azlan Shah Airport can be found 2 miles out of Ipoh's bustling centre. The best way to reach it is to hail down a local taxi – look for the red-and-yellow painted ones – in town and agree a price for a transfer direct to the departure halls – something in the region of RMB 20 is fair. Alternatively, it's likely your hotel can organise a private chauffeured care for a little extra money.
Malindo Airways offers 2-stop connections via Johor Bahru and KL between Ipoh to Langkawi , while budget fliers tigerair and Air Asia have other services that go via Singapore and KL. Because of the layovers, you can typically expect a journey time of anything between 7 hours and 14 hours in total.
Once you've landed on those Ipoh-Langkawi flights, it's time to head for whatever corner of this archipelago you've chosen. In the absence of any train or bus connections, the only way to do that is to use the pre-paid taxi service in the main arrivals hall. You can expect huge variations in rates depending on where it is you want to go, from RMB 12 for Rebak Marina to RMB 50 for driving all the way to Gunung Raya.
Bagging those cheap flights from Ipoh to Langkawi is just the first step to leaving behind the jungled interior of Malaysia and making for its fabled coastline. Next comes the decision between lazing on powdery Tanjung Rhu beach or hitting lively Cenang Beach for the sizzling night markets and cool bars. Of course, there's more than just cotton-white sands here too, like the soaring Langkawi Sky Walk that goes above the forest canopy, or the endless mangroves and coral reefs where scuba diving excursions are a great way to explore life below the ocean.
