The Langkawi Skybridge is one of Malaysia’s greatest tourist attractions and is due to reopen in February 2015. The extensive skywalk is built at the top of Malaysia’s Machinchang Mountain, roughly 90 meters above the jungle floor. The walk offers spectacular unhindered views of the surrounding jungle, islands and ocean. The 125 meter long skywalk forms an arc over the forest canopy and is supported by a single pylon that is a sight of architectural beauty.
The structure is one of the world’s longest curved suspension bridges. It took a great deal of planning and time to construct in a challenging environment when built in 2004. Langkawi, a tropical paradise within a stunning archipelago bordering Thailand, offers visitors a chance to experience the idyllic landscape of rural Malaysia.
