Kuala Perlis

Getting there and away

Bus

The only bus to Kuala Perlis is from Kangar, via the Cityliner bus station in the centre of town. Buses leave daily from 08:45 to 19:30 nearly every hour and take 20 minutes, excepting Fridays when they there is a longer gap around noon for prayers. The bus will either take you straight to the Langkawi jetty terminal or drop you off at the intersection before doing a turn back to Kangar.

From Kuala Perlis taxis leave from the jetty terminal building, upon getting enough customers. The rate for Alor Setar is 40 ringgit and to Arau train station 28 ringgit.

Updates from Travelfish readers

  • on 30 Oct 2011 I shared a taxi from Kangar to The ferry at Kuala Perlis. we paid 8 Ringitt each. the ferry to Tammerling in Thailand is further North past the Langkawi terminal and then to your left, about 200 metres in total. immigration is on the wharf, you have to wait till the boatman has a load and pay 20 ringitt for the 40 minute ride. a nicer way to cross the border would be hard to find. thai end is well organised and a songthau to Satun awaits you.
