Langkawi: Cable Car

Wooootzz..Here's another "MUST VISIT" attraction in Langkawi.

The Langkawi Cable Car!
The Oriental Village is free-entry but the main attraction is riding up the cable car to the top of the mountain and walk on the sky-bridge.

On the way up, we will be served with a spectacular, breathtaking view of the sea, the mountains and waterfall.

The mountains are quite steep. If you are afraid of heights, then hold tight!
When it's windy, the cable car will sway a little, giving more adrenalin rush.

Look how steep it is =)

Upon arriving at the 1st platform, took some couple pics with xeRoZ.

We can actually see the amazing skybridge from here.
Can't wait to get up there ^^

Went up there with 10 other guys...

It was really disappointing that:
1. The SKYBRIDGE IS CLOSED.
2. THE OTHER PLATFORM IS CLOSED TOO!

So we paid, went up there and snap some pics.

Luckily, the beautiful scenery did compensate some fun!

I'm pretty disgusted with the business ethics of our country. I feel scammed, cheated and totally disappointed. We paid RM11 for our trip up there. There were no signs or notice to tell us that the skybridge is closed. We weren't told that the platform is closed too!

I mean, whats the point of going up there?

The weather is fine, the maintenance notice written was that the bridge is closed on 19 August onwards. We went up on 15th August, so what's the reason for the bridge being closed?


Here's some view of the Oriental Village.

Quite pretty. Hope they'll maintain it properly.

Cable Car Entrance fee: RM11/pax
Please check whether the skybridge/platform etc is opened before going there.
Operating hours: 10-5pm. (as written on the board)
