cable car and floating bridge excursion from KL

hi,

if i am staying in KL, is it possible to travel to langkawi in the morning, visit the cable car and the floating bridge, then travel back to KL, all in the same day?

-so if it is possible, what are the best timings to go?

-how long it will take the full journey?

- is it possible i can make it back to hotel in KL before 1pm?

-any transportation recommended from KL hotel to KUL (i am staying near times square)?

-any transportation recommended LGK to the cable car?

-any one knows of any discounted tickets? i am traveling mid-october if it makes any difference..

i am only interested in the cable car and the floating bridge, and probably some souvenir shopping if any shop on the way. no lunch will be taken and no other sightseeing will be interesting.

thanks for feedback

Hi

You will need to look up flight schedules from KL to Langkawi to see whether it is possible to make the journey in one day.

The skybridge is closed for maintenance at the moment so all you will be visiting is the cable car and it is a long way to travel just for this. Langkawi has much more to offer than just the cable car and if the weather on the island happens to be stormy, which it sometimes is in October, then for safety reasons the cable car could be closed so you would have had a wasted journey.

Thanks Lesley,

it is that time when i investigated what you mean by "closed" that i got to know that it has been shut for some time and probably wont be ready till end of year.

your reply is much appreciated.

personal view: langkawi is a beatiful island indeed, but i extensively searched the POI and activities there, and they mostly were not to my pleasure. few activities will be done when i visit Malaysia with the family in few years time, but for now, as a solo traveller, langkawi doesnt intrigue me.

thanks again for your valuable reply.obviously langkawi trip is canceled unless the skybridge is open again.

best

Skip Langkawi!

Put it on your bucket list and take more time.
