Decided to go on the Cable Car trip today. Walked down into Kuah town and it was really hot (again). Caught a taxi to the base station which took about 40 mins although it would have been even slower had the driver driven at the speed limit instead of 20 kmh above it! The ride up was breathtaking and took about 10 mins to get to the top. from there we went on a second cable car to the highest point which was 700 meters above sea level.
Returned to the bottom and back to Kuah Town for a session with the ATM's. A long queue and half an hour later we got our cash. Credit cards are not that frequently used here. back to the apartment for a swim and then off to the night markets for a look. Lots of food stalls and shops and then walked to Wonderland Food Store (which is actually a restaurant) for a nice meal.
