  • Teow Soon Huat Bhd: Largest Supermarket in Langkawi?

    by lilipit Updated Apr 11, 2004

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This shop is about 2 to 3 storeys high. It is more a department store cum supermarket. It is indicated in the Langkawi map that you get from the airport.

    I am not too sure about whether the prices are competitive, but there's a good range of things from food, drinks, chocolates to suitcases and electrical items

    Complex Membeli- Belah: Best in town

    by Imbi Written Jan 23, 2004

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    It is the biggest one roof shopping place in Langkawi. It is located in Kuah, and have different kind of shops. I will not say it is shoppers paradise but still it is like a paradise when you enter in this air conditioned shopping centre when it is 35 C outside.

    All: Duty Free Shopping

    Duty Free Shop In Kuah

    In Kuah, the main town on the island, are several 'Duty Free' places. The whole island, in fact, enjoys this status. The shops resemble duty free places at airports with the selection of goods they have on display. I found that the shops selling electronic goods, such as cameras, did not have the latest models available, as can be found in Singapore and KL for instance. Research prices carefully as a non-discounted price without duty on Langkawi may be higher than a discounted price elsewhere with duty.

    Kuah Town

    by wufei Updated Oct 29, 2003

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The name 'Kuah' is a Malay word meaning 'gravy' and is associated with an ancient legend of two battling giants who overturned a gigantic pot of curry (kuah) at the spot where the town now stands.

    Once a rustic town with few streets, present day Kuah is a thriving centre of modern hotels and shopping-cum-business complexes, but without the over-crowding and bustle of modern cities.

    Kuah is a duty free shopping haven with a wide variety of goods sold at attractive prices and its restaurants offer excellent culinary delights, especially fresh seafood.

    the buidling of arts and craft..

    this place is a huge complex housing all the local malaysian crafts under one roof.. they have everything from metal artifacts, fabrics, ceramics, ethnic craftwork right up to items from the forest.. there's also a demonstration area where handiwork such as weaving, batik painting, wood carving and plaiting is done.. to top it all, the prices of the items sold here are pretty reasonable as well..

    this place opens daily from 10:00 a.m. till 6:00 p.m.. admission is free! :)

    What to buy: all the local craft that takes you fancy.. we bought some egg shaped marbles as souvenirs.. makes a pretty nice deco for the desk.. :)

    local products in langkawi

    by eelaine Written Aug 27, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    batik sarong galore..

    other than being a duty free island, langkawi also have a lot of locally produced items to offer.. some of which are not available anywhere else..

    What to buy: some of the local products worth looking at is this healing ointment called gamat.. it's actually made of sea cucumber.. the story goes that a long time ago, a fisherman stepped on one of these creatures and had his legs glued with the sitcky white secretion from the sea cucumber.. in his frustration, he took an axe and hacked up all the sea cucumber around him.. the next morning, he found that all the hacked up sea cucumber are all healed and whole again.. that gave him the idea.. if the sea cucumber could heal itself, then it should also be able to heal people’s wounds.. thus, the “minyak gamat” industry began..

    other than that, other items to consider buying is batik sarong, t-shirt, crytal, marble, etc.

    langkawi island: duty free haven

    by eelaine Written Aug 27, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    bird's eye view of malaysia's shopping haven..

    langkawi is a tax free island.. so, shopping becomes a must do when you're here..

    What to buy: things that most malaysians buy are alcoholic drinks (beer is cheaper than mineral water here), imported chocolates and ciggies.. :)

    What to pay: the prices at the shops in town are pretty standard.. not much bargaining to do.. only thing is if you're paying cash, they might slash the listed price a little..

    Awana has several little shops on the boardwalk.

    What we bought was at a very good price.
    Some shops are closed during Chinese New Year.
