Malaysian immigration was a bit more routine and on solid ground. Before long, our taxi dropped us off at our hotel.
Langkawi is a massive island just off the west coast of Malaysia, and we stayed in a beach resort called Pantai Chenang
The cable car is one of the largest and steepest cable cars in the world, spanning more than 1.4 miles, and reaching an altitude of 708 metres. To say Karen was scared would be an understatement, and on the journey up, standing, and talking (in Neill's case) was definitely banned! Within the first 10 minutes of the ride we reached the first hill station, at just over 600 metres above sea level to the first view point. As you'll see from the photos, the views were simply stunning! After a few photos, we jumped back on the cable car to the second hill station, 708 metres above sea level.
As you'll see, the views were simply incredible as you could see pretty much the whole island of Langkawi from this point. We took several photos, walked across the suspension bridge (which was waaay to shaky for our liking!), and had a couple of burgers/hot dogs before starting our descent back down.
The following day we didn't get up to much, and decided that without our own hire car to explore the island, there was little point staying too much longer, so we decided to book ourselves on a bus the next day to Kuala Lumpur.
