December is a good time to visit Langkawi as it falls during the hot, dry season.
You can expect hot, sunny days with around seven hours of sunshine daily interspersed by the occasional tropical downpours that generally occur during the late afternoon and evening.
Daytime temperatures reach an average high of 31°C (88°F) with a low of 24°C (75°F) at night.
Weather conditions in December are excellent for sunbathing, swimming, snorkelling and scuba diving.
It’s also a good time for an island hopping tour and exploring the Pulau Payar Marine Park by boat as well as hiking through lush rainforest to scenic waterfalls en route to Gunung Raya Mountain. Or head to the main town, Kuah, for some duty-free shopping.
Early to mid-December is a good time to avoid the peak-season school holiday rush from Malaysia and Singapore that continues from mid-December until New Year. At this time, you need to book early and be prepared for higher hotel rates and more crowded beaches and entertainment venues.
