Locally know as Kompleks Kraf, this is the cultural craft complex of Langkawi that showcases and sells exquisite handicraft and artwork from Malaysian craftsmen and artists. The craft complex was set up in the year 1966. The entry way of Langkawi Craft Complex is from the road Jalan Teluk Yu and opposite to the Shark Bay Beach. So it is located near the northern shoreline of the island. It’s a huge complex and the main Craft Complex building has succession of halls with several sections that are designated as museums displaying varieties of intricate art & craft items and reflecting the rich cultural heritage of Malaysia.
As you enter through the main door, there is a lobby area and the reception counter is on the right. Talk to the lady at the counter and understand the layout of the craft complex.

Here you will find different kinds of apparel, clothing, gifts, souvenirs, accessories, home furnishing products, utensils and lot more.
