Cable Car and Sky Bridge in one day?

Hello,

Is it possible to do the Langawi panaramic cable car and sky bridge in one day?

How do I get there, and are the two sites near each orther?

Yes, possible. It is at the same site. However, I heard some says the skybridge is closed for maintenance. Hope DE for Langkawi can confirm,

Hi

Which hotel are you staying in?

Easiest way to get to the Oriental Village and the cable car is to take a taxi.

just to be clear, the sky bridge is at the top of the cable car. your cable car ticket entitles you to walk down to the sky bridge. but as others have said, it is closed until later this year.

The skybridge is closed for some structural checking and analysis as the bridge had been in operation since 2003.

Once the Austrian expert had given his go-ahead, the bridge will be opened by the new operator. There was a change in the management of the cable car operation 2 months ago.

lumflux,

Make sure you agree on the rate before you hop onto the taxi to avoid any disputes later on. While there are fixed rates for travelling from point A to B, most taxi drivers in Langkawi do not adhere to these published rates.

i have never had a taxi driver not adhere to the published rates in langkawi. the only exception is they add 2 or 3rm if you call for a taxi rather than going to the rank. and there are evening surcharges, but these are published.
