Oriental Village is best known as the home of the Langkawi Cable Car and Sky Bridge. The cable car transports visitors some 709 meters into the sky to the summit of Mount Mat Cincang—the second highest peak on Langkawi.
While the Langkawi Cable Car is undoubtedly the main draw here, Oriental Village has become a popular attraction in itself, offering enough in terms of shopping, eating and entertainment to fill a full day out. This sprawling, open-air complex features a vast array of souvenir and retail outlets, galleries, health spas, a hotel, and even a huge lake at its center.
Popular attractions at the Oriental Village include the duck tour, elephant adventure, and the tiger exhibition. Langkawi Oriental Village food court is also a crowd-pleaser, offering a variety of tasty Malaysian dishes at more than reasonable prices.
The Langkawi Oriental Village is located in Burau Bay on Langkawi’s western side. There are two entrances to the village—gates A and B—with the main entrance at gate A. Usual opening hours for shops and stalls in the village are 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.
