Panorama Langkawi is a ‘must-try’ if you visit Langkawi. There are many attractions here, but the ones that you should try are the SkyBridge and SkyCab. Go and ride a cable car using SkyCab to experience the panoramic view of the greeneries while being 650 metres away from the land. Dangling amidst the lush green forests, with only the open blue sky right in front of you is something you should do at least once in a lifetime.
One of the main attractions here a walk on the SkyBridge. Yes! It is what it is, so brace yourself and walk through a 125-meter-long suspended bridge. The bridge is 100 metres above the ground, and the scenery is breathtaking. Some even cry in awe of the beautiful sight, but most usually cry because of fear. The sky filled with silver clouds is just before your eyes with the breezy wind touching your skin. The sound of the wind intertwines with the echo of singing birds from the woods - this memory right here will last a lifetime.
The ticket price for SkyBridge will cost you around RM6.00 while SkyCab's ticket price is RM55.00.
