“Not even open to public”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2013

Closed! Under repair works.... They need to get on a fix this. It looks stunning though - it would be 5 star if it were open

“Closed!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2013

We were planning to walk over it. Knew it was closed for past few months. We were hoping that it would open by the time we visited but were very disappointed. Anyhow the cable car ride was excellent.

“A Nice Duet With the Cable Car Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2013

Having travelled up the cable car right up to the Top Station, the Skybridge is accessible by a descending flight of manmade steps. It is here that you get to view the significant beauty of Gunung Machinchang and witness its notable hilly landscape alongside its accompanying jungles. Needless to say, the place offers a lot of opportunities for photography and some very remarkable ones too!

The Langkawi Skybridge also appears to be one of the world's longest curve suspension bridge and to be here to experience it all is a definite collection for the travel memoirs. As you get off at the Top Station, remember to participate in the short climb up the steps located adjacent to the refreshments area as this will take you to two viewing platforms on top of Gunung Machinchang where visitors are treated to a panoramic view of the Langkawi Island as well as the neighbouring country - Thailand and mainland Kedah. Grab the opportunity to witness nature at its awe while you're here and don't forget to get some sunblock creams and a hat if you're planning on travelling there in the late mornings or afternoons as it can get really hot up there.

“Closed for repairs but still impressive”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2013

The ride up entailed a long wait of 45 minutes in a less than well maintained building selling the same old merchandise you can get anywhere else on the island. The ride however, was worth it with spectacular views of the jungle below and the sea in the distance. There is only one coffee place up on the hill and some small stalls, so please purchase your refreshments and snacks beforehand. When we went, the sky ridge was closed and the view atop the mountain was shrouded in mist. Pick a good, sunny day and you should be alright.

“closed for maintenance”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2013

I read in many reviews that it is closed for maintenance and we found the same when we went there by cable car in Oriental Village. The view of Sky Bridge from cable car is very good. Shooting of a famous Bollywood movie 'Don 2' took place on the sky bridge. Televisions installed in the waiting area of the cable car showed the sky bridge scenes of the same movie.
