Time is really tight, and don't even know what to advise you. Everywhere to rush, and that's it. In fact, if anywhere, the delay will not have time. As for customs, they usually pass through the green channel if nothing to declare, it'll take you 10 seconds. But since you are so worried about customs, probably something you are going to declare? There can't suggest anything, never in my life nothing is declared. Do not forget about border control: everything moves slower, after a passport check, someone stamps put on to make someone a visa. In General, all quickly, but still try to be ahead of the queue to the border guards. And by the way, it is unclear on what pier you arrive. If in Kuah, it is quite another to go to the airport, about 30 minutes. With Telagi closer ...

Yes, Telagi closer, only 20 minutes on the motorbike, in the car, the same probably. Take of course a taxi, there's no other way to Langkawi in General. Taxi will find immediately without any problems when entering the Parking lot. About to change money in Telaga, you can't tell, it should be theoretically. In the port of Kuah in the airport too, and there should be. Well, at least in the airport will change and pay driver. Theoretically should be sharing and on Lipe, but I was not there. Crossed from Satun to Langkawi, there just was exchange from Thai baht to Malaysian, course acceptable. About КЛИА2 do not understand, maybe you have something confused. КЛИА2 in KL is like there by taxi??? ...
