1. Ulu Melaka Night Market – Monday
Located at Taman Wawasan Indah, you’ll find the Ulu Melaka Night Market quite a way in, so you might need to drive there!
It’s also not at the exact location as stated on Google maps, being a little more upfront and next to the mosque instead.
Here, there’s plenty of local food available, such as apam balik, nasi kerabu, and a multitude of drinks. You will also find dorayaki with more local flavors such as kaya and corn.
While there isn’t much variety here with mostly fruit stalls and apparel stands, it’s worth dropping by for the atmosphere and varied dinner you can get!
- Address: 2, Taman Wawasan Indah, Kampung Padang Gaong, 07000 Langkawi, Kedah
- Opening Hours: Mondays (5 – 9 PM)
2. Kedawang Night Market – Tuesday
Open every Tuesday from 5 pm to 10 pm, you’ll find easy parking on the empty field opposite the night market.
The Kedawang Night Market offers plenty of food choices at a reasonable price; from the more common satay, Malay-styled mixed rice and twisted potatoes, to desserts such as cheesecakes and bombolone donuts!
The night market also houses plenty of apparel stalls that sell clothes, shoes, and various accessories for cheap.
As a note, we do recommend that you head on earlier when it opens to avoid missing out on the food, as the place tends to get pretty dull after 9 pm!
- Address: Kampung Chenek Kura, 07000 Langkawi, Kedah
- Opening Hours: Tuesdays (5 – 10 PM)
3. Pekan Kuah Night Market – Wednesday and Saturday
The most popular night market in Langkawi, the Pekan Kuah night market is open on both Wednesdays and Saturdays.
With a vibrant atmosphere and a large number of various stalls, you’ll find the overall vibe to be excellent, with plenty of locals raving about the place!
What’s more, the food variety you’ll find here is unparalleled; from mango shakes, satays, Nutella-soaked pancakes, kebabs, and much more. So you’ll be sure to find something here that’ll make you drool!
Furthermore, the Pekan Kuah Night Market is a quick 5-minute walk from the Goldsands Hotel Langkawi, but it’s well worth traveling to from further places to visit this exceptional pasar malam.
- Address: 213 C Kampung Bendang Baru Mukim Kuah Langkawi Melayu, 07000 Langkawi, Kedah
- Opening Hours: Wednesdays and Saturdays (4:30 – 10 PM)
4. Temonyong Night Market – Thursday
You’ll find this particular night market at Kampung Lubok Buaya, with plenty of inns and guesthouses nearby should you consider staying around the area.
While the Temonyong Night Market is a decent night market to pick up some quick snacks and peruse the wares, the variety here isn’t the best.
There is, however, reasonably priced food, so try out their delicious RM1 nasi lemak if you have the chance!
Apart from the food, there’s also your standard suite of apparel stalls selling your usual clothing and accessory fare.
It’s relatively convenient to get to if you’re staying in Chenang, so give it a visit if you can’t make it to any of the bigger night markets!
Note: Head on earlier to easily find parking as it gets quite packed later in the night.
- Address: Kampung Lubok Buaya, 07000 Langkawi, Kedah
- Opening Hours: Thursdays (6 – 11 PM)
5. Ayer Hangat Night Market – Friday
Right along Jalan Padang Gaong, the Ayer Hangat night market is open every Friday from 5 pm to 10 pm.
There’s a good mix of both food and apparel stalls at this location, so you’ll be able to get a fill of both local dishes and bargain deals!
The food here is the highlight, with items such as crepes, satay, ketupat, and even fresh seafood vying for your attention.
There are also plenty of drinks here to help quench your thirst!
That being said, the parking situation can be troublesome, so either head over earlier, or simply grab a ride there!
- Address: Jalan Padang Gaong, 07000 Langkawi, Kedah
- Opening Hours: Fridays (5 – 10 PM)
6. Padang Matsirat Night Market – Sunday
Open every Sunday from 6 pm to 10 pm, the Padang Matsirat night market is located right at the side of the main road so expect a lot of traffic as well as limited parking.
But parking woes and location aside, you’ll find delicious food, including satay and apam balik, as well as rarer gems like the putu buluh.
If you’re in the area though, we’d highly recommend trying the mee goreng ayam (fried noodles and chicken) for its flavorful taste!
The prices are easy on your wallet and apart from food, there of course, are apparel stalls selling clothes, shoes, and even locally produced perfumes.
- Address: Padang Matsirat, 07100 Langkawi, Kedah
- Opening Hours: Sundays (6 – 10 PM)
That makes up the best night markets in Langkawi! So if you run out of nightlife activities in Langkawi, you can check them out too.
Any of these night markets will serve you well, although try going to the Pekan Kuah night market on Wednesday and Saturdays if you can fit it into your schedule.
And if you want to properly enjoy the food and the vibes, make sure you head on a little bit earlier so you get the best bites (and parking slots) before they run out!
