Provisioning in Langkawi ?

Does anyone know if bread flour is sold in Langkawi or in Bali?

Trying to determine what we need to stock up in Cairns and what can wait until later. Also posted this question under the Provisioning topic.

Hi Judy and Bill! Cant say for sure about flour but there is a more than reasonable sized supermarket in Kuah (the main town in Langkawi) you can find it up behind the Macdonalds in Kuah. We weren't cooking much in Langkawi but that was a fairly well stocked one. Nice marina in Kuah but the one round the other side near the cable car is also good but alot further out and no real services. It was three years ago that we were there and the Lonely Planet identified a bus service on the island - there wasn't one! None at all and the locals thought it was funny that we were asking. You will need to hire a car or motorbike to get around but the shopping centre in Kuah is really the only one. Good luck and you will love Langkawi. Ray and Fiona

Yep, we got both bread flour and yeast at a bakery supply store in Langkawi. It was up off the highway between Kuah and the airport. Took a bit of asking to find it.

Re: Provisioning in Langkawi?

We have a boat currently in Langkawi getting boat work done.

There is a very large supermarket near Royal Langkawi Yacht Club. There is anchorage available nearby if you can't get into marina. Two other marina's available, but Reebok requires free water ferry to main island, and then taxi ride into Kuah.

There is a couple, Paul and Sheila, who run a company called Nautical Bits at the RLYC who offer help with provisioning. For less than the cost of a taxi to main grocery Sheila showed us the best places to buy wine, the best bakeries, the only place that has bacon...and then she took us main grocery to finish up the last bits. She also took us to stores to purchase dishes, linens etc, as we had just purchased the boat. We would have never found these stores on our own. Let me know if you would like contact information.

Langkawi is easy--everyone speaks english, it is full of expats, and it is beautiful. The local population is largely muslim, so plan on covering your shoulders.

We will back on Oct 28, if you have time look us up! Arkouda is the first vessel on the right in C Dock.
