Visit Oriental Village for a lasting memory

Visit Oriental Village for a lasting memory

A trip to Langkawi leaves a lasting memory but none can beat the thrill of the world’s steepest cable car ride up to the vantage points of the island on top Mount Macinchang at 708 metres above sea level.

The stunning vista of the Langkawi archipelago and shoreline, the inviting Andaman Sea are the icing on the cake for visitors.

The scenic cable car ride to the top of Mount Machinchang.

Check your phobia for height by riding on the glass-panelled bottom cable car ride that allows you to look down to the foliage below and try walking along the SkyBridge.

Suspended from an 82-metre single pylon and measuring 125 meters in length, the structure is the world’s longest curved bridge.

Step onto the curved bridge itself is already a mind-blowing experience, and it goes up another notch with a 360-degree view at the mountain.

Take the SkyGlide, an elevator-like mini tram fitted with glass panel along a 80-meter dedicated trek that transport you from the cable car station to the panoramic sight at the SkyBridge.

At the base station of the cable car is the bustling Oriental Village that offers duty free shopping, al-fresco dining as well as eateries.

Check out the man-made lake and take a stroll along the bridge and stop at the lily pond to take a photo.

Look up the skies and be dazzled by a canopy of multi-coloured umbrellas and pick up novelties from the souvenir outlets to your liking.

Step into a spectacular three-dimensional virtual tour to fete your eyes at the SkyRex. Take a ride of your life as free-roaming dinosaurs roamed about and lunged to you with the sharp teeth.

The roaring dinosaurs indulged in a cat-and-mouse chase to knock you off the virtual tour car you are in while it rolled in the ground and crashed. The terrifying scene of your virtual ride is a replay of the blockbuster movie, Jurassic Park.

At the nearby SkyDome, be dazzled by the sights of stars and universe while you watch in a 360 degree views of 3D image projections that last about 10 minutes while waiting to board the gondolas.

Have a fun time posing in front of wall images at the 3D Art Langkawi for good laughs and photography opportunities. Some 100 paintings await to keep every visitor entertained in the country’s largest interactive 3D Art Museum.

The premises for the 3D Art has two levels. Stick around for a spellbinding image show to give your visual sense a treat.

Make a pit stop at the fountain in front of base station to watch its synchronized water display.

Oriental Village and the SkyBridge have been the most visited tourist spots in Langkawi and you are rest assured a half day there will fly past in a jiffy.
