telaga harbour park: sip cocktails... relax... smoke shisha...
There's very little to do in terms of nightlife in Langkawi - and this is something I really enjoyed. The best thing one can do is to sit back, have a cocktail (or mocktail - no alcohol) and relax. This is perfect on the terrace of Perdana quay.
On the other side, on Petronas quay, there's a little arab restaurant where you can smoke the shisha and enjoy being with locals: it's a tourist-free corner of heaven. To find it, sicne it has no name, look out for the KFC sign: don't worry, there's no KFC joint... you'll find this restaurant instead.
The Garden bar: The Garden resort
As we are wondering where we wanted to go, we saw one couple walk out from the garden area place, so we walk in and we saw there are a lots of dining table and empty, atually its pass dinner time, there are a bar and the live band close up alreaady, its a garden chelet resort, its really beautiful and the area just next to the beach. just have a look at the area we feel so much regret for did not do the booking earlier, the enviroment really garden and forest like, its beautiful.

Sunsutra Nouveau Restaurant: Reggae / disco / lounge...
On either side of the restaurant you will find a disco and a lounge bar. Throughout Pantai Cenang you will find bands playing, reggae, etc. Just ask any young man, shop assistant, or the receptionist at your hotel.
Dress Code: Everyone seem very nicely dress in the evenings.
Bar at Kuala Kuah
In this area, there are so many bars, restaurent and shopping area. All the drinks here are cheaper than other places you can get... my friends have spent the nite less than 1 hundred ringgit for a bottle of chivas... can you belived it. If you get a bottle of chivas in Kuala Lumpur, it gonna cost you around RM320. Well have fun then
Chambor Chambor: Cenang Beach
There are a few restaurants and bars in Cenang Beach area. They are spread out so you'll have to do some walking. If you want serious nightlife then Langkawi is not for you. Try Thailand it is more fun. I think this place in the picture was called Chambor Chambor.
Dress Code: Whatever
night markets in langkawi: pesar malam, night market

Sunba, Sunsutra, Sunkarma: At Pantai Cenang
This is a new building, opened just this month. I spoke to the owner cum designer. He had initially wanted it to open before LIMA'05, but had some logistics problem. Most of the items they used in there is imported. Sutra is a fine dining restaurant, Karma is a nice chillout pub, while Sunba is a pub with a traditional Malay Kampung (village) feel. And Jeffrey actually bought 2 malay houses and converted them into what we see today. So this new building with 3 diffrent concept, is the latest nite spot on Pantai Cenang. With lots of parking space. If you come from the Underwater World, you wont miss it on your left, just after Sunmall. Don't visit the toilet without your camera. It is even more special than the toilet at Sunmall. Be in for a nice surprise.
Dress Code: no dress code
OASIS: Nice bar with lovely cocktails
Because most of the other bars were pretty dead and the Raggae bar had closed down, i found Oasis a pretty decent bar with lovely cocktails, good music, friendly people and nice atmosphere right by the beach in Pantai Cenang.
Dress Code: Its a beach bar!...anything more than casual and you'll look overdressed !
The Reggae Bar!: It's not just about Bob Marley!
The Reggae Bar is located on Pentai Cenang - quite literally! There's no floor, so you're walking on sand, the walls are made from palm leaves and are hung with Bob Marley posters! This was our local haunt during our stay on the island, and we loved it here! The staff were so friendly, and the house band who played every night were fantastic! Don't be put off by the name and the decorations though, it's not just reggae, they play a really good selection of music and do requests too. There's something so special about drinking with newly made friends on a beach, with lightning flashing over the sea and lighting up the other islands while a band plays your fave song. I loved this place!
Dress Code: This certainly isn't the place to show up in stiletto heels - you'll disappear into the floor! No need to dress up at all, whatever you're comfy in, most people just wear casual trousers/shorts and a t-shirt with flip-flops.

Aseania bar: The night is still YOUNG
Live band and great singers. They serve good cocktails too.
I had my fave Singapore Sling. If you're a foreigner, try some local-made cocktails. Not a bad experience.
Besides, the beer in Langkawi is super cheap, grab as many as you like and drink like nobody's business.
Dress Code: No dress code, wear as you please.
- Beer Tasting
Pasar Malam (Night Market)
Pasar Malam can be found in any villange of Langkawi. According to VT tips, they shift from one village to another every night. We was there at Kuah Town on saturday and we found it was there. There were nothing much to buy for tourist except those local food. I had tried some, perhaps you will want to try as well.
- Family Travel
Cenang beach has a very lively nightlife. I drove myself to Cenang when my fellow family member all fell on sleep. Many shop was still on business, including the souvenir shops. I could find see many convenient stores which open till late or even 24 hours. There were pubs, bars & bistro, many restaurants, and many tourists wandering around for a beer or two.
