After the sun sets below the horizon, Langkawi transforms into a nocturnal playground, with rows of bars and lounges offering great views of the Andaman Sea as well as an extensive range of alcoholic beverages. Pantai Cenang and Pantai Tengah house the best places for after-hours drinks; Pantai Cenang’s bustling stretch is popular for its restaurants that morph into cocktail bars while Pantai Tengah’s strip is comparably tamer with laidback pubs featuring deejays spinning music and live performances from local acts. While clubs that belt out skull-pounding music are non-existent in Langkawi, night dwellers can opt to spend a cool evening with their choice of ice cold beer, strike up a conversation with fellow tourists or locals, listen to some good music, catch the latest match on the big screen TVs or simply enjoy the sunset with while sipping on a delicious cocktail.
