Despite playing host to some of Langkawi finest natural and manmade attractions, Pantai Kok’s nightlife scene is comparably tamer than Pantai Cenang and Pantai Tengah, which are both reachable within a 15-minute drive down south. Visitors can opt for upscale lounges located within luxury resort hotels or head to Perdana Quay on Telaga Harbour Park, which features trendy bars and restaurants that open until late. The latter is a favorite place for expats and yachties (people who live on their boats at the marina) as well as families and travelers on a budget.
Traveling in Malaysia is quite convenient since it has some major bus terminals and express buses are the preferred mode of transport here. Tickets for which can be booked online from www.redbus.my

Telaga Harbour Park
Telaga Harbour Park is a modern collection of bistros and eateries that overlook the tranquil Andaman Sea, but clubs playing deafening music until the wee hours of morning are practically nonexistent. The after-hours venues located here mostly cater for families or couples looking for good food and a few drinks. Usually patronized by expats and yachties, Telaga Harbour Park has a few good places that are suitable for after dark drinking, such as Mare Blu Italian Ristorante and Tapaz Restaurant.
Chime, situated within Century Beach Resort Langkawi, is a posh and uber-swanky nocturnal hotspot for those who are in the mood for a rocking night out. Boasting roaring red decor and cozy sofas, it is well-frequented by affluent locals and travelers for being one of the best places for drinks and live music. Guests can also enjoy the evening breeze on stylish gazebos with white curtains in the outdoor lounge area.
