“Poorly treated animals, just after your money! ”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 19, 2013 via mobile

We stayed in the Geopark Hotel within the oriental village, which was very nice. The village itself is a sham, dirty food court, a tiger in a cafe (!?) and tourist shops selling all the usual clothes and souvenirs. The worst thing was a rabbit 'petting zoo' The rabbits were poorly looked after in a concrete space with no grass or water. Most of the rabbits looked ill and full of disease. Customers were seen picking up, kicking and chasing the rabbits! Disgusting behaviour which will be reported. Go to the cable car but ignore the oriental village!

“Strictly for Cable Car”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 13, 2013

The Oriental Village has been designed to show case the traditional Malay way of life. But it has now evolved to a zone where you can eat, shop & play games. There are a few local eateries here which serve cuisines like Japanese, Chinese, Arabic & Malay. The shops sell souvneirs, beach wear etc. You can take a forest adventure tour or ride the Segway. The village is the port of embarking for the cable car ride & I suspect it sees footfall only due to the cable car. Do not come here only for the village; nothing great here.

“Wander round”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 9, 2013 via mobile

The village is the access to the the cable car, a nice wander round although not much going on. The cable car offers amazing views of the island and shouldnt be missed

“Noisy commercialized tourist trap”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 8, 2013

Was here to grab a bite and was surprised at what a tourist trap this was.. Perfect competition of shops selling marked up clothes n toys, a poorly maintained bunny farm..

“Dont even bother...”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 17, 2013 via mobile

I am more oriental than this village...just shops on the way to the cable cars...japanese restaurant is the only oriental business there. The rabbit farm is heartbreaking..no hay or fresh grass for the heat exposed bunnies. Overall very disappointing
