Langkawi - Day 3 - Oriental Village/Geopark Gunung Machinchang

Day 3 at Langkawi
I drove up to Gunung Machinchang where the Oriental Village, Geopark and the cable car is situated at. Its a windy road up. So for you peeps who plan to go please plan yourself and drive safe!

Note: DO NOT GO THERE IF ITS A RAINY OR CLOUDY DAY BECAUSE THE CABLE CAR AND THE SUSPENSION BRIDGE WILL BE CLOSED!

Well the first thing I notice when I walked in was the sign below...
JALAN DANG WANGI!

Well besides that its a charming little place.

Mom excited!

The weather wasn't so good (as you can see the picture), so the cable car and the bridge was temporary closed.
So while we wait we went around exploring.


Well as I say everything looks nice and charming even the WASHROOM is...
YY check out the toilet man... got personal fountain leh! better than your Indon toilet... WAKAKAK and it cost 30sen ONLY!!! LOL!!!


The place is covered with streams of lillies.


This is actually a hotel. Nice huh???!!!


Mom sempat posing.

Beautiful Lilies.

After that we went to the petting zoo. Fed the deers and rabbits.


When the weather cleared up, we went on the cable car.

Warning its not for those who actually have a fear of heights or for those who gets sick easily when you are swayed in a cable car! The ride was a little scary because of the strong wind the car was literally swaying side to side, up and down. NOTE THE WEATHER WARNING ABOVE.

Me muka ketat while in the cable car.

View from inside the cable car.


The view from the first stop.


The highest point is 710 meters above sea level.

Walking to one of the look out points.

At the look out point.

For smokers its bad news for you... LOL note the sign below, it says
NO SMOKING! PLEASE ENJOY THE FRESH AIR!

The wind is very strong up there. As you can see my hair is a total mess.
Make sure you wear something that can keep you a warm don't be a hero like me wear jumper skirt. It's COLD.
>.<

The view of the bridge.

It says on a clear day you can get to watch the beautiful sunset.

Unfortunately this is what I got to see.

REMEMBER DO NOT GO UP ON A BAD WEATHER!!
To get to the bridge we had to track a number of stair through the forest.

Getting there is easy getting back walking back up the stairs is a little tiring.

Its a must visit place for all of you who plans to go to Langkawi!
