Langkawi Taxi Service in Cenang, Langkawi is a good and reliable service, although they do not have taximeters, but fixed rates between places, have taxis for 4 passengers, 6 & 8 seaters (plus 50% to 100% on price), while the taxi-drivers normally are helpful, polite and non alcohol-drinkers (muslims) and not all of them speak good understandable English. Normally you don’t need a taxi to go around Cenang beach area and the longest drive in Langkawi is about 40 min (is 25 Km from North to South).
We have taken (1) a taxi from the airport to our hotel in Cenang Beach in Langkawi (and the opposite), (2) from Cenang Township to Kuah (capital of the island) and retour, as well as a taxi (3) to go around the island [(about 4-5 hours), e.g. 7 wells waterfalls, Black Sand beach, Cable Car, Crocodile farm, white beach, etc.]. For the last two trips we have used a taxi (8 seater van) with a very good taxi-driver (named Hamid bin Ngah), who was reliable, entertaining and polite. The prices were fixed and this was good in avoiding (in the majority of cases) any possible dispute (although a little bargaining could be done).
In order to go around we have used taxis from the two taxi stands on Jalan Pantai Chenang (a) one almost opposite the Cenang Mall and (b) the other outside the Langkawi Aquarium (Underwater World Langkawi), where they have the tables with the fixed prices for all possible taxi routes in the island of Langkawi.
Summing up we found the Langkawi Taxi Service reliable, we had good taxi-drivers and we cannot hesitate to suggest them.
