    We were part of a small minibus group that had 1 day in Langkawi . Part of tour was to visit the cable car and skybridge . We did opt for the express lane so that reduced the time in queuing . Cost was less than £20 per person - but excellent value.
    It’s the longest free span. Able car that takes you up the Machinchang mountain - you certainly get a panoramic view of the island as well as the surrounding islands. From the middle station you take a further ride to Top station and if you feel energetic you could take the 19 walk to the skybridge - longest curved suspension. Being of a certain age we opted for the monorail !
    It was cloudy when we went but I am sure it would be wonderful on a clear day. Be aware that there might be a queue to get back into the monorail for the top station .
    Overall a brilliant element of our Langkawi trip .

    It is near to the Langkawi Airport, very convenoient and it cost around RM15 if you GRAB taxi from the airport. I suggest you booked the ticket online then redeem at the counter 30mins before the ferry time. there is nothing to explore around that area. There is only 1 cafe available for meal. I strongly suggest that you take your meal before heading to the ferry terminal. It was such a waste that the restaurants around were closed , maybe due to Covid that they were not able to survive.
    The process from getting a ferry ticket to embark to the ferry are pretty straight farward, no hassle, it was just no place to chill while you are waiting for your ferry, so don't get there too early. The ferry ticket is RM320 for return.

    Langkawi Taxi Service in Cenang, Langkawi is a good and reliable service, although they do not have taximeters, but fixed rates between places, have taxis for 4 passengers, 6 & 8 seaters (plus 50% to 100% on price), while the taxi-drivers normally are helpful, polite and non alcohol-drinkers (muslims) and not all of them speak good understandable English. Normally you don’t need a taxi to go around Cenang beach area and the longest drive in Langkawi is about 40 min (is 25 Km from North to South).
    We have taken (1) a taxi from the airport to our hotel in Cenang Beach in Langkawi (and the opposite), (2) from Cenang Township to Kuah (capital of the island) and retour, as well as a taxi (3) to go around the island [(about 4-5 hours), e.g. 7 wells waterfalls, Black Sand beach, Cable Car, Crocodile farm, white beach, etc.]. For the last two trips we have used a taxi (8 seater van) with a very good taxi-driver (named Hamid bin Ngah), who was reliable, entertaining and polite. The prices were fixed and this was good in avoiding (in the majority of cases) any possible dispute (although a little bargaining could be done).
    In order to go around we have used taxis from the two taxi stands on Jalan Pantai Chenang (a) one almost opposite the Cenang Mall and (b) the other outside the Langkawi Aquarium (Underwater World Langkawi), where they have the tables with the fixed prices for all possible taxi routes in the island of Langkawi.
    Summing up we found the Langkawi Taxi Service reliable, we had good taxi-drivers and we cannot hesitate to suggest them.

    Great views, the wind blows so soft n cool, sunlight is great, not to be missed. The waiting line is fast, n the cable car riding is great n scary at the same time. We enjoyed so much.

    The 6D animation and 3D muzium are the best. We love it.

    We pre-booked two half day excursions with GC Butler, our guide was Nor GC.
    He was helpful, experienced, fun, professional and overall very easy-going. If you want to have a worry free excursion, book through GC Butler. They will arrange everything for you, pick you up from where you are staying, drop you off after you are done, stay with you throughout the day, giving lots of useful information, tips and taking photos and videos all the time.
    Nor later shared all the photos with us and I was surprised of the amount. Many photos were taken without us even noticing, which made them even more authentic and spontaneous.
    Thank you Nor for two wonderful trips.

    We had one of the best days of our holiday with langkawitaxiservice.com. I booked early for our group of 7 people visiting the island for one day from a cruise.
    Firstly it was easy to make the arrangements from the UK by email (langkawitaxi@yahoo.com) and questions were quickly answered. When we arrived we were met on time by the driver/owner who was lovely and informative.
    We started with a 3 hour island hop which we all loved. We fed eagles and visited beaches and reserves. The boat trip was fast and exillerating - be prepared for a bumpy but fun ride!
    We next went to the Skybridge, the entry was not included in the price, but as the trip was so reasonable per person it was not a problem at all. We had a fantastic gondola ride over the rain forest and walked along the Skybridge. My advice would be to buy a ticket that includes the transport from the gondola to the actual sky bridge, it is quite a hike in the steamy climate.
    We followed this by visits to Eagle Square, some waterfalls and finally to Kuah for duty free shopping.
    In Kuah some of our group were gasping for a beer, can I recommend a small cafe called Dominos. We had beers and a wonderful tuna sandwich which was tastier than any food on the cruise ship! We were the only people in the cafe and the owner and his wife were lovely.
    We were taken back to the ship on time and safely by our driver.
    Highly recommended by all our group who were a mixed group from Australia, UK and New Zealand.

    Azri picked us up at the cruise port, from there we went to the Langkawi cable car and sky bridge. He purchased all the necessary tickets and provided very detailed explanations . From there we went on a private boat ride around the Kilim Geo forest to tour the mangroves, we saw the eagles in flight , the monkeys , the bat cave, stopped for refreshments at a floating restaurant . After we were returned to the ship in ample time. All in all a great day and a very complete and educational tour. We would very highly recommend this tour .
