The sky-bridge was closed for manitenance when we visited but it looks fantastic. Try to avoid going at weekends or Malay holidays.

Thought we would check this out as the views from the top over the island looked great and I have to say on that front we were not dissappointed.

What i would say was that we bought tickets and joined the queue, however we caught a break as we were a couple and jumped into an early car to get it filled... otherwise if in a larger group we would have been queing for about an hour

The trip up is pretty daunting... its fine if you have been skiing but if not it is steeper than this so for people with fear of heights i would maybe avoid this!!

The view at the top is superb.... well worth the money

So if you are in a pair/single/couple its definitely worth it

Dont go if in large group... you will que for ages!!

Also dont go just to the oriental village... its not much to shout about!!

Although we were advised by the Sheraton hotel tour agent not to go there ("waste of time"), we decided to do it by our own.

We enjoyed great views of the island and the see. It's really worth doing! The cable cars seem safe and well maintained, everything is well organised.

Hint: don't use the organised excursions. There is no value for money. Going by your own it costs you less (30MYR pp for the cable car ticket) + taxi (from 20 to 30 MYR depending where you stay)

Great ride, worth every Ringgit (RM15 for Msians, RM30 for foreigners). The summit is around 700m above sea level and offers a stunning view of the Langkawi islands (on a clear day). One can also go for the canopy walk which is simply stunning (currently closed for renovation).

We went up even though the skybridge was closed that day "for maintenance" though we suspect it was the high winds. Pleased to see they are safety conscious. The ride did not open until about midday even though opening time is about 10am. We did some other attractions on the way so did not get there until 12 and then got express tickets.
The views up the top are marvellous even on a cloudy day (as was our day) you can still see quite a way.
There is a cafe up the top where you can stop for a drink. The staff were pretty friendly up there
The toilets were well maintained up the top by the staff (we were in the first 5 cabs however)
Suggest taking a fully charged camera or spear battery up with you as there are some great shots such as the waterfall half way up that you don't want to miss.
