This is on the list of must-sees in Langkawi so we knew we were going to check it out.
Once you get to the Oriental Village it is shop after shop of touristy things (even a sad pony/horse ride), we paid our entrance fee and were actually moved ahead to the VIP line because there was just 2 of us. The cable cars fit 6 people and it is quite a tight fit - it was definitely an amazing view as you ride up to one section, then line up again to get to the highest section. The Skybridge was closed so we didn't get to see that but could tell it would have been amazing. There were so many screaming kids and families we couldn't wait to get out of there after we rode the cable cars back down.

We happened to be at the cable car in the late evening about 6-6:30, and there was hardly any crowd at that time. The cable car ride itself and the sights are wonderful, a must on your journey to langkawi.

There are a couple of stops (one in middle, one on top) where you can get off and enjoy the sights. There is the famous Langkawi skybridge near the top, which was closed at the time we visited. I am not sure when it is going to open. Regardless, the ride is fun and highly recommended.

If you are excited about to view the Northwest of Langkawi from above 700 m, and it just takes minutes to reach the top, this is definately a must see. We also had been at the tower in the center of the island of the island. They charge 10 RM pp. but the view here is much better. We were exited to walk over the treetop bridge, but it was closed for a major service. We haven't seen any workers at the bridge and somebody told us the bridge might open in April 2013, some others say it will never open again.

We arrived when it opened in the morning.
Suggestions from another couple was to go striaght to the top, don't get off at halfway, as you then have to queue for an empty car when people getting on at bottom.
No need to stop halfway, but you can always do it on the way back.
Great views worth the visit.
I don't like cable cars, so a little scary. But I did it.

It was a good experience. Ticket price is RM15 for Malaysians and RM30 for foreigners.

There are 2 stops where you can enjoy the view from different heights.

Too bad coz the skybridge was closed for maintenance during my visit.

Worth a visit !
