Oriental Village is best known as the home of the Langkawi Cable Car and Sky Bridge. It is a themed open-air complex with a huge lake in the centre and an art gallery, animal exhibits, clothes, souvenir and handicraft stores spread out around it plus a few local and international restaurants.
Located in Pantai Kok towards Langkawi’s western side (past the airport at Padang Matsirat) the Oriental Village is usually busy with visitors. Most tours of the island include trips to the complex, especially since this is where the ticket booth for the Cable Car and Sky Bridge is. Queues are a common sight for most of the galleries and attractions, especially in the mid-morning and early afternoon.

Langkawi’s Ayer Hangat Village is home to therapeutic hot springs lying just north of Kuah on Jalan Ayer Hangat and makes for an interesting trip. Malay-style buildings create a village-like environment on the lushly landscaped grounds, with cool and hot water pools. A series of small canals run through the grounds and connect hot spring water collected from two wells with cooler water, offering you temperature variation options. Surprisingly, the hot springs are natural salt water, which seeps up from the shallow tide table. The springs claim to be medicinal, helping improve chronic skin conditions, detoxing and joint pain resulting from injury or gout. Also located in the village are wet and dry reflexology paths. These paths are made up of small stones and massage the reflexology points of your feet as you walk down the paths.
Located four kilometres southwest of Tanjung Rhu Beach, the beach offers memorable photo opportunities and a peaceful retreat from the island’s often crowded areas.
