Langkawi’s Sky Bridge, which has been closed for maintenance and upgrading since 2012, will reopen in December this year.

According to The Star, the Langkawi Sky Bridge, considered as one of Malaysia’s biggest tourists’ attractions, will reopen in December, as 77% of the maintenance and upgrading works are complete. The delay, according to Langkawi Development Authority (Lada) chief executive officer Tan Sri Khalid Ramli, was due to bad weather.

The main structures of the bridge will be replaced with stainless steel and there will also be a 10m-long walkway in the middle to allow visitors to look down the valley. There will also be an “inclinator to bring visitors down from the top of the station,” said Khalid.

Another new attraction to look out for is the Langkawi Sky Dome, Southeast Asia’s first outdoor “full” dome. Built at a cost of RM1.53mil, the dome will give visitors a panoramic view while watching animated films.
