Tioman

Largest island of Malaysias east coast. It’s located 32km off the coast and is some 20km long and 12km wide and the highest peak is Gunung Kajang with 1038m. In the 70ies TIME magazine selected Tioman as one the world’s most beautiful islands but lost some flair in recent years due to do development. The island has eight main villages, many beaches and is densely forested and is surrounded by numerous coral reefs, making it a scuba diving haven.

Fraser’s Hill

Hill resort spread along 7 peaks at 1,200 - 1,500 meters above sea-level on the Titiwangsa mountain range, about 100km north of Kuala Lumpur. Originally it was set up as a tin mine in the 1890s by Louis James Fraser (hence the name) until the tin ran out in 1913. A few years later the area was rediscovered as British-colonial hill resort. The cooler temperatures made it popular getaway destination from the hot and humid weather for the British. To this day Fraser’s Hill still retains its colonial charm. The area is recognized destination for bird watching with over 250 species recorded. Other activities include jungle trekking, golf, horse riding, archery, boating and mountain biking.

The Langkawi Cable has 3 stations. The Base Station is located in the Oriental Village at about sea level. The journey to Middle station at about 650m above sea leavel is 1700m in length and takes about 15min. Be warned though, the journey in the skycab is not for the faint-hearted! The Langkawi Cable Car is steepest cable car in the world and at times it feels like you are going up vertically along the cliff. So if you are afraid of heights, you think might wanna twice before entering the car. The journey from the Middle station to the Top station (708m above sea level) is another 450m. From the Top Station on Gunung (Mount) Machincang you can enjoy amazing views of the the island(s) from two viewing platforms. The Top Station also gives access to the Sky Bridge.

The cable car might stop operating during bad weather (strong winds). It makes more sense to do the ride on a clear day anyway to enjoy the views of Langkawi and the surrounding islands (up to the Southern Islands of Thailand).
 

Sky Bridge
The spectacular Sky Bridge is a 125m long suspended bridge hanging 100m above ground on a 82m high single pylon! Currently, the Skybridge is closed for maintainance.
