More suited to locals than tourists

Lots of shops but nothing really to buy. Not a destination in itself but as part of the cable car experience it passes a bit of time.

the 3D museum is one of the more interesting museums have ever visited. the 3D pictures are very realistic, especially if taken according to their suggested photoshoots. best to visit if not rushed for time, as the exhibits/pictures are quite spread out. since it is within the compound of the Oriental Village GeoPark, can couple this visit with the Langkawi...

The Oriental Village is very close to Berjaya Resorts where we were staying and so we ended up going there multiple times. It has some good options to eat, a few shops and a duty free shop as well. Inside the village, there is the 3D Museum and the Sky Bridge and Cable car are nearby. We roamed around this... More

Lots of little shops and eateries - there's also a 3D museum for the kids. I did actually find 1 shop which was mainly handicrafts that were not like all the other shops - it's on the other side of the village (another entrance ) from where you get dropped off by the taxis... if your coming from Pantai cenang....

The place is filled with little shops, make sure you bargain! My friends and I didn't bother to stop by any of these stalls or restaurants tho. Mediocre place that definitely needs something new. But the cable car and sky bridge is right in the center of this place!

We roamed around this village when we came down from the sky bridge. It's a beautifully maintained area with water, bridges and flowers. You can find food there but we didn't eat there. We did see a water monitor lizard which I also filmed swimming. Not sure if TripAdvisor allows movies.

Looks like a small china town with a village. Lots of attraction within the village. Well guided directions for the tourists. Plenty of food outlets are available. Taxi service is just outside the gate at your convenience. From Kuah it will take 40 minutes’ drive to the oriental village between the taxi costs of 30 to 40RM.

Fareham, United Kingdom

In a situation that can only be described as beyond heartbreaking, an Asian elephant called Lasah in Malaysia is enslaved by humans and exploited and abused 24/7/365. Basic needs of his species – to live with others of his kind, to sleep lying down, to eat and drink properly, to cover himself in mud to protect his skin from sunburn, to scratch himself maybe with a twig he finds or against a tree, to slosh about in water and to roam free – are not met. And to make life even worse he is chained by his four ankles to the floor all night when the tourists who came to ride him have left.

The dirty secret of elephant tourism and trekking is that young elephants, usually baby girls, are first poached from their mother and herd and 'broken'. Breaking is done by chaining the baby elephant's body into a large structure so the humans can torture the elephant with instruments and pain. When the elephant is broken it can be taught what the human wants it to do to earn money for the human. Training involves more pain and torture.

The average weight that a trekking elephant carries each day all day is around half a tonne allowing for 150 kilo chair plus 4 guests. You will see permanent indentations on elephant backs where these chairs have been. Elephants live as long as humans and are often worked to death.

Langkawi Elephant Adventures in the Kedah state of Malaysia own this elephant and there are several Trip Advisor pages that promote ‘elephant experiences’ with Lasah, mainly now through Oriental Village. Experiences include feeding inappropriate food (too sugary) and trekking.

Positive reviews on Trip Advisor only encourage this shameful behaviour from unthinking tourists and the owners
