Oriental Village Langkawi

Pantai Kok Attractions

Oriental Village is best known as the home of the Langkawi Cable Car and Sky Bridge. It is a themed open-air complex with a huge lake in the centre and an art gallery, animal exhibits, clothes, souvenir and handicraft stores spread out around it plus a few local and international restaurants.

Located in Pantai Kok towards Langkawi’s western side (past the airport at Padang Matsirat) the Oriental Village is usually busy with visitors. Most tours of the island include trips to the complex, especially since this is where the ticket booth for the Cable Car and Sky Bridge is. Queues are a common sight for most of the galleries and attractions, especially in the mid morning and early afternoon.


Cable Car in Langkawi

The Cable Car is the Oriental Village’s most popular attraction. It takes passengers up Mount Mat Chinchang (Langkawi’s second tallest mountain) which stands at 709m above sea level. Many wonder what the big deal is and the views from here answer that question almost without words. Simply spectacular, the journey to the top will let you see the forested slopes of Mount Mat Chinchang (also known as Gunung Mat Chinchang) and even the Telaga Tujuh Waterfalls.

Though the Cable Car operates according to a regular schedule, strong winds can sometimes result in its temporary suspension, so call ahead to be sure it is working before heading to the Oriental Village. Read More...

 

Langkawi Sky Bridge

At the final station of the Cable Car journey, is the Sky Bridge. The best spot for unobstructed views of the whole of Langkawi, you can even see Langkawi’s outlying islets. On a really clear day, the final triangular viewing platform of the 410ft-long curved pedestrian bridge is its most thrilling section – from here you can sometimes see the mainland and even all the way to Tarutao Island in south Thailand. Though it is completely safe, with double steel railings and an enclosed wire mesh, looking down over the sides of the 1.8m wide bridge is truly scary. Read More...

Oriental Village Attractions

The Oriental Village is basically an open-air lifestyle mall with a wide range of souvenir stores selling handicrafts and knick knacks. Prices are reasonable but always try to bargain to get better rates. Almost all the clothing stores here have bathing suits for sale. Prices all over the island are pretty standard: check out the pretty batik print beachwear that can only be found at the Oriental Village.

If you want some shopping tips, be sure to try the outdoor kiosks instead of the permanent stores – they have better discounts with owners more than happy to negotiate. 

Oriental Village Activities

Ever wanted to speed around on a Segway? Well here is your chance as there is a store that rents them out – it is the perfect way to explore Oriental Village without having to elbow your way through the crowd. Also check out the trained eagles of Falconry Encounters at the Animal Adventures exhibit. Besides that, visit the Tiger! Tiger! Gallery & Exhibit, where you can see the beautiful Zanah, a Malayan Tigress with the personality of an overgrown kitten – watch as she plays around in her playground and pool.

Other Wildlife Encounters

Meanwhile, the Langkawi Elephant Adventures is home to Lasah, an elephant who will take you on rides. If you are not keen on riding her, you can simply participate in feeding sessions. For those who want a tamer wildlife activity, take a look at the wildlife art collection by local and fledgling artists at the gallery here – entrance is free but you have to be appropriately dressed.
