SkyCab, SkyBridge, SkyGlide and SkyBistro in Langkawi, Malaysia - Day 03 - Ep 07

Day 03 - Ep 07 - SkyBridge is a must-visit attraction of Langkawi - it attracts tourists from all around the world, throughout the year and is the busiest tourist attraction of Langkawi. So, you better plan to go early in the morning. SkyCab opens at 9:30pm during normal operation days. Do not forget to checkout their up to date timing calendar on the day of your visit here.


As mentioned in previous episode the entrance to SkyBridge and all other Sky* attractions are through the Oriental Village and you might get distracted with other attractions :), so even if you want to spend some time exploring other attractions and Oriental Village itself, we recommend to go straight to SkyCab first because the queue at SkyCab grows very quickly. You will have all the time to come back and visit rest of the attractions, the same day.

Please note that you are not allowed to carry along any food & beverages with you. You will have to submit these at the entrance and can collect them back on your way out.

Ticket prices for foreigners are as follows:

Adult: - Normal Lane - RM 85 & Express Lane - RM 135
Child (2-12 years): Normal Lane - RM 65 & Express Lane - RM 115

(Shared) Glass Bottom Cable Car or Gandola - Per Person - RM 105 - Shared mode with Express Lane (inclusive) and complimentary entry to SkyDome, SkyRex and 3D Art Langkawi

Private Glass Bottom Cable Car or Gandola - RM 550 - Private with Express Lane (inclusive) and complimentary entry to SkyDome, SkyRex and 3D Art Langkawi

(Private) VIP Cable Car or Gandola - RM 550 - 3 Sofa-type extra comfy seats. Inclusive of Meals, Express Lane, and complimentary entry to SkyDome, SkyRex and 3D Art Langkawi.

The SkyCab Cable Car or Gandola boarding happens periodically after every 15 minutes and throughout the day, back and forth.

The SkyCab station at Oriental Village, from where you'll start your journey, is called Lower Station. Once you reach almost 90% of the height, you will see the Middle Station, and if you like you can stop by and explore the viewpoints at Middle Station and then from the same point hop on to incoming Cable Car or Gandola to reach to the Top Station. It would take less than 10 minutes for you to reach to top station, non-stop from lower station and for the record, this is the world's steepest cable car with highest slope angle of 42 degrees!

At the top station, you can do sight seeing from wonderfully designed view points. You can also get some healthy snacks, juices, confectionaries, etc from the SkyMart. There's also a restaurant/cafe called SkyBistro where you can enjoy your lunch or supper, offering both local and continental meals.

From the top station, you will have two options to reach SkyBridge (1). Use SkyGlide, which is like a tram and will take you down to the SkyBridge entry point. The ticket price (two-way back n forth) of SkyGlide (which includes SkyBridge fee as well) is RM 16 per person (2). Trek through the Nature Trail called Sky Walk - free of cost and then pay fee for SkyBridge at entrance - RM 6 for adults and RM 4 for children.

Skybridge is known to be the longest free span and curved bridge in the world. The bridge is suspended from a 82m high single pylon, hangs at about 100m above ground and it can accommodate up to 250 people at the same time. It swings out over the landscape to give visitors a unique spatial experience, and to bring them into otherwise unattainable locations, above virgin jungle with spectacular views.
