If you are driving yourself around Langkawi, do get a copy of one of several maps that are available on arrival at the airport or the ferry terminal. Look out for a copy of Langkawi Link the only traveler's guide you need to Langkawi.
Otherwise, all taxi drivers and tour guides are familiar will know their way to the Oriental Village. It is, after all, the most visited destination on Langkawi.
Many outlets at the Oriental Village do not pay commissions to tour guides, taxi drivers or the like. As such, shoppers will find some of the best deals at the Oriental Village.
We would advise visitors to hire a car on arrival (at either the airport, jetty point or from bonafide car rental agents) and find their own way to the Oriental Village (and other locations). Visitors doing so will not be hassled or hurried by accompanying guides or drivers who only find incentive to visit stores that pay commissions.
Alternatively, if you are uncomfortable driving yourself around, insist on heading to the stores and activity centers on your own. Almost everyone at the Village speaks sufficient English to assist you with your purchases. Bahasa Malaysia (or Malay) is also commonly used here.
