The ferry service is fine, just note that the AC is on and its best to have long pants and even a sweater, as most people on the low level where you must enter seemed freezing, like me A bit warmer on the upper floor if you are lucky enough to get there in time to grab a seat

Took the ferry to Koh Lipe, booked well ahead and paid for. All worked fine. However the passport control we thought was slow at Langkawi, however at Koh Lipe it was unbelievably slow.

Another passenger swapped seats with us so we could seat together. They put on a movie for you to watch, but we didn't have time to... More

70 ringgit, while Air Asia does the route for as little as 40 ringgit. Would be one thing if they let out sit out on the deck, but we were simply locked in the cabin for 3 hours, while they played two ultra-violent movies. Ferry company can't even be bothered to offer food or drink. Hello!! You've got a captive... More

It takes about 1 hour 45 minutes from Kuala Kedah to Langkawi. The ride was smooth and everything was quite fine. Just the air condition in the ferry is not function good.

It was in month of October dur to intense Haze, our flights to langkawi got cancelled. SO we had no other choice to go to Penang & travel to Kuala Kedah to grab the ferry. Ferry terminal was dirty and very crowded. So was the ferry.
