Oriental village is a nice quaint place to visit especially after getting on the cable cars. It has lots of shops which sell souvenirs and snacks and some restaurants. This village has a lot more potential and could be improved. Most of the shops all sell the same stuff so there could be more of a variety. The village shops... More

It's ok, but it does give you access to things like the cable car. It is really just a bunch of tourist shops with some places selling food and drinks. You may as well have a look on your way to the cable car.

If not for the skycable entry to sky bridge no one will visit this place. They should seriously look in to improving this place.

Wanted to hop on the SkyCab to reach the Sky Bridge, one of the few top attraction on Langkawi Island. Took a taxi from St Regis Resort (MYR 50) to Oriental Village.

We had a great time at the village... esp in the air conditioned shops 🙄. The kids enjoyed the floating balls on the lakes and the space bumper cars. We saw there are elephant rides which we declined to do (hope they look after their elephants! ) and rabbits for a petting zoo which we missed also. A lovely chocolate... More

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
