Must do in Langkawi. Brilliant views over the island on a clear day, however I think getting a clear day in October might be a bit difficult, so as soon as the skies clear race up there. We had no issues with queing, maybe waiting all of five minutes.

Enjoyed my trip on Langkawi Cable Car, we were lucky with the weather in rainy season and we had a spectacular view. No idea why the Sky Bridge was closed.

Definitely do this. Although it was mostly cloudy when we went up, it cleared up enough times for us to take in the views and they are incredible! The cars are clean and the staff very friendly. If you can afford it, pay the extra money to take the express line (99 MYR instead of 30). We were told that the waiting time for the normal queue was 1.5 hours but there was no queue for the express line.

Also, as part of the express line package, you can opt to do the Sky Trail which involves walking through the mountain from the top station to the middle station. The walk should take you between 30-45 minutes depending on your speed. It's not difficult as there man made steps along the whole way although some parts may be slightly tricky for small children or the elderly but they're manageable and our guide was always willing to lend a helping hand. The walk for us was definitely well worth the effort. Needless to say, wear comfortable shoes.

The whole journey took around an hour and a half between cable cars and the Sky Trail although there's no set time to how long you can stay at each stop. Highly recommend this if you're not scared of heights!

We thoroughly enjoyed the cable car and the view from the top.
The last section before the mid station is very steep, and quite thrilling (particularly on the way back down).
The view from the middle and top stations is amazing.
We were fortunate enough to go up when the sun was shining, so had a wonderful view, but stayed up there long enough that the cloud came over, leaving us standing in the cloud, which was great in a different way.
One tip - there is very little/no shade at the top, so make sure you are wearing suncream or take a hat.
