Two to choose from

What we say: 3.5 stars

The wet markets are best visited in the early morning or in the evening after 17:00. Most of the vendors close for mid-day.

There are two major wet markets in Langkawi, one is located in Pandang Matsirat on
Jalan Kuala Teriang just west of the town centre. It's down on the left just after the
bridge over the Muda River.

The larger of the two wet markets is in Kuah Town on the main road Jalan Kalibang. It's set back off the road to the north. Look for the Simes Tyre Shop past the first traffic lights that you encounter coming into Kuah from the airport. Turn in and you'll see the large roof of the open-air market.

Once at the market, you'll find everything from fruits and vegetables to meat, poultry and a wide variety of fresh seafood. This is the place to explore all the foodstuffs that are used in the daily Langkawi diet. If you have any questions be sure to ask as the vendors are very friendly and proudly like to discuss their products.
