Summer Palace hotels
Whilst the Langkawi Summer Palace sounds like a regal manor with a long rich history, the building is actually from the set of an American film called “Anna and the King”, which was made in 1999. The locals made this lovely remnant, which is located on beautiful Pantai Kok beach, into a tourist attraction the following year and added souvenir shops and a restaurant to the complex. Pantai Kok is a beautiful beach framed with scenic limestone hills. It is close to the base station for the Langkawi Cable Car, which takes visitors up to the top of Mat Chinchang.
- Watch the fairies frolic in the Seven Wells at Telaga Tujuh Waterfall or just enjoy a refreshing soak in one of these natural pools.
- Enjoy rowdy crocodile performances, take a ride on a croc-drawn rickshaw, or watch daring men box with these huge reptiles at the Langkawi Crocodile Farm, just seven kilometres from the Summer Palace.
- Explore the beautiful aquariums and exhibits of unique marine creatures like cuddly fur seals and intriguing Rockhopper penguins at Underwater World Langkawi.
Langkawi International Airport, located in Padang Matsira, is only twelve kilometres from the Summer Palace, but ground transportation from the airport is limited to taxis and rental vehicles. Many visitors arrive by sea via ferry from Kuala Perlis, Kuala Kedah, Satun Penang, and Kolip, Thailand. There are no public buses or trains, so hiring a vehicle is recommended, but one should be wary of any touts pushing rentals. There are numerous legitimate car and motorcycle rental agencies stationed at the airport, near the ferry terminals and around the island, and many of the hotels offer bicycles for hire.
