Every time I move to a new place, I always get excited to explore the area and get my bearings. It's a trait that my father probably passed along to me. Basically, I step out the front door of my place and walk straight in one direction and then straight back. Then, on another day, I will select another direction and walk straight back. And so it goes...
We found Kuah Town (the actual epicenter of the town) on the third day that we arrived on Langkawi. The first day, we explored the little town area around our hotel. The second day we walked in the direction of Jetty Point and Eagle Square. So, discovering Kuah Town (which was only a 5 minute walk from our hotel) was awesome because it gave us so many new options for food!
The day we actually walked into Kuah Town, it was a Saturday, so we walked into the weekend Night Market being set up. And you know how much I adore Night Markets!

This Night Market was my favorite on this trip because of the huge selection of local street foods. We went from stall to stall buying foods to try along the way. And, like always, I thought it would be nice to share our journey.

The Night Market went beyond just the river. In the center of Kuah Town, there were also stalls set up with similar food stalls and a lot more great things to see (Langkawi t-shirt booths, souvenir booths, accessory booths, etc...) I think, because it was quite warm, temperature-wise, that trying all the different fruit juices was my favorite part about walking around the Night Market. It was also a great way to cleanse the palate before trying something new.
By the time we got dessert, it was too dark to get a good foodie photo, but I hope this traveller's post about Kuah Town's Night Market does some justice!
