Pack What You Want..
Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Weather: tropical with occasional showers. It can get really hot during the day around 30-34 degrees.

Toiletries and Medical Supplies: Insect repellant. Medications available from town pharmacy or small kiosk at most beaches.
Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: If you love camping..yeah..why not bring your camp gear along.
SD Cards, Memory sticks
Luggage and bags: If you wish to travel to Langkawi by the regional budget airlines Air Asia, make sure you dont carry heavy luggage. They dont allow to check in more than 15 kg per person. Hand Baggage allowance is same as other airlines-7 Kg
Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Being a warm and humid place, light clothings -those which can easily dry up are preferable for this place. For going around the islands and island hopping, avoid shoes. Chinos would be ideal.
Toiletries and Medical Supplies: A lot of people had adviced us to carry mosquito repellants, but we didnt come across mosquitoes in the hotel rooms. Sometimes during a jungle trek or while going to waterfalls, we did encounter few mosquitoes, but that's normal. Patches would be sufficient for this.
Photo Equipment: Memory sticks, SD Cards, spare rechargable batteries for the camera is a must. There are internet kiosks all over the island but they may or may not have CD Writing solutions to copy the images from your Camera Memory sticks, SD Cards to the CD
Miscellaneous: Carry your driving License if you plant to rent a car
