Express buses to Kangar leave hourly from Butterworth ( RM10.40, 2 hours 15 min ). Then, head to Kangar city bus terminal from express bus terminal and take Mara Liner's Kuala Perlis bound bus ( RM1.50, 35 min ) to the jetty. This kind of city bound bus departure is infrequent and it is always good to plan ahead, the approximate departure time is 11:45, 13:15, 14:45 and 16:45.

The journey can only to be continued with long tail boat from Kuala Perlis's Lembaga Kemajuan Ikan Malaysia ( LKIM ) jetty, which is about 200m further of the Langkawi bound jetty.
