1. The Langkawi Cable Car (SkyCab), Langkawi Island, Malaysia
Langkawi Island may be known for duty-free shopping and beach hopping, but these are not the only things to do during a visit to the Pearl of Kedah. Only roughly 20 kilometers away from the hotels along the main tourist beach of Pantai Cenang is the Langkawi Cable Car Complex. Simply make your way through the cultural village and enjoy the steep ascent up to the tip of Machincang Mountain. While at the top continue to push your limits and try to cross one of the longest sky bridges in the world. If you enjoy photography set up your tripod and capture the beautiful panoramic view that includes Pantai Tengah, Pantai Cenang, outlying islands and an upper section of the Seven Well’s Waterfalls.
Cost: 30 Malaysian Ringgit (approx. 10 US dollars)
