Langkawi Malaysia

Langkawi

About

With Langkawi being only one of four inhabited islands out of the archipelago of 99 islands, it’s a truly magical destination.
Langkawi is a haven for tropical flora and fauna, with its mixture of picturesque paddy fields and jungle-clad hills.  It’s famous for its stunningly crystal clear turquoise waters, and if you stay at any of the outstanding luxury resorts we recommend on the island, you’ll be able to explore the archipelago by boat – it’s fantastic for island hopping.

Weather

As far as temperature is concerned, there is no “Best Time” to visit the island of Langkawi, although precipitation may be a factor. Temperatures remain fairly consistent throughout the year – average high temperatures hover around 90F and the lows drop to only the mid 70’s, no matter what month it is.

If concerned about the details, on average, the hottest month of the year is February, and the coolest month is October, but these tiny variations will not be felt.

More important than temperature is precipitation.  The rainy season is from September until mid November, during which time on average, there are about two hours of rain per day.  Note that an hour of this rain fall usually comes during the night.  Even during rainy season, the mornings are usually filled with sunshine, with the rain coming during overcast afternoons.

The mid-season (neither dry nor rainy) is from mid April until August.  The mornings are again sunny, but the afternoons can be overcast.

The dry season is from mid November until mid April, during which time there is very little rain.
