Welcome to Pulau Langkawi....
According to local folklore, Langkawi derived its name from the eagle or "helang". In old Malay, "kawi" denotes reddish brown, hence, Langkawi means reddish brown eagle.An 18 metre man-made eagle is visible at Dataran Lang (Eagle Square) situated near the Kuah Jetty


Langkawi island is one of the famous and beautiful islands in Malaysia, separated from the far northwest coast of peninsular Malaysia by the Straits of Malacca. The latest about Langkawi is, there are now a sky-bridge that pedestrian can take a walk above the clouds on the new half-moon curved suspended pedestrian bridge at the top of the 500-million-year-old Mount Mat Cincang, Langkawi. The Langkawi sky-bridge is suspended at 700 metres above sea level. It spans 125 metres across a spectacular chasm. We can see the nonacrophobic adventurers 360 degree views of the Langkawi islands and the Andaman Sea. Built for tourists and opened in 2005, the bridge is accessed by a 15-minute ride in an electronic cable car, which leaves from the Oriental Village mall complex.

 The 1.8m-wide bridge had two 3.6m-wide triangular platforms that provided a spectacular viewing-cum-resting area for visitors.
Unlike straight bridges where you can see from the starting point, the bridge has been curved to provide different perspectives over the land and sea. Convenient triangular platforms located along the curved bridge provide rest areas so you can sit and appreciate both the beauty of nature and an incredible feat of engineering. Langkawi Sky-Bridge is safe.
