I don't know how you could travel all the way to Malaysia and not ride the cable car. The views are breathtaking and the sky bridge at the top is out of this world. The views of the landscape including the ocean and waterfalls on the way up, at the top and on the way down is just incredible. If you are there you have to do it, if you are afraid of heights, just close your eyes and get to the top!

Although the views over Langkawi were beautiful, the cable car was rather busy and we weren't able to access all the viewing points.

before travel to langkawi, cable car was 1 of the "must go" visited place, because plan to see the sunset if have chance, furthermore can view the 360 degree view of Langkawi. but we were disappointed because the sky bridge is closed down for maintenance, so we are able to reach until the top platform but unable to go through the skybridge. And due to fasting month, there are closed on 6pm on Friday, and 5.30pm they are started to ask people to go down... quite a disappointment.

We arrived about 4pm and it closed at 5. It was a great hour. We absolutely loved it and consider it a highlight of our trip to langkawi. Going at such a late time worked well because there were fewer people and no queue. Sadly the sky bridge was closed but the views were so amazing, with clouds drifting in and out and views to Thailand, that Lthough it was a little disappointing, we still loved its amazing ness and the sheer engineering wonder of it. Don't miss it!

I was here with family on a weekday. We were staying in town, so on the way here, it started to drizzle. We were afraid that cable car will be closed by the time we reach here. We arrived quite early, around 11am so it was not very crowded. You will pass by the shopping area; most of them are selling local handicraft, batik products and souvenirs. There are few f&b outlets here but we didn’t try any of them.
We were lucky that the cable car still open! There was no queue except for few people in front of us. The ride was smooth and stable. Although it was windy, it didn’t feel too scary. The condition of the cable is well maintained and feels secure. The climb was very steep! Apparently it is one of the steepest cable car rides in SEA. It will take about 15minutes to reach the top, passing 2 stations. Once you are on top, the view is beautiful. Take your time to appreciate the view and maybe some photo moments. If you ask, this is one of the must do things in Langkawi! Just to add on, my mother who is 69years old took the cable car ride and enjoyed it!
