Genting Highland – More than just the theme parks

For those in and out of Malaysia, when Genting Highlands is mentioned, the first thing that would pop in your head will be the thrill filled, exciting rides that makes up their theme park. Not only that, being nestled high on a mountain peak makes Genting Highland the best place to escape the scorching sun to the salubrious mountain air. P.S., even though the outdoor theme park is currently under construction for the bigger, better, more extravagant Fox themed theme park, don’t let this stop you from getting yourself there. Here are the many other things that can be done up this mountain.

Casino de Genting
Genting Highlands raison d'être, the Casino de Genting may not come anywhere near Las Vegas’s prime light where sparkling dresses, glittering neon lights and scantily-clad showgirls abound, but for all its worth, this is Malaysia’s only legal land-based casino. Men in batik shirts and women in pretty frocks crowds the tables and punters line the slot machines waiting for their luck to bless them with a big payout. There is nothing but pure fun here (and momentarily loss for some too).

Flying Fox
If you fancy being strapped safely into a harness and helmet and then jumping off a ramp into a dipterocarp forest, then this would surely tickle your adrenaline spirit. This airborne adventure sends you off down a 100-metre strung down the side of the hill, not only do you get to enjoy this jump down, imagine the view of the whole Genting right in-front of your eye. The ultimate best way to bond with friends and family and required minimum level of instruction, making it the perfect quick-thrill ride.

Genting Skyway Cable Car
The Skyway Cable Car is the fastest and easiest way to get to the apex of Genting Highlands. This relaxing and scenic ride affords you breathtaking views of the surrounding hills; the gondola-style cab glides along at leisurely pace, making it an ideal photo-taking opportunity.

Snow World
Experience a winter wonderland, unlike any other in Malaysia, when you step into the snow-white landscape of Snow World. Featuring the Cresta Run snow slide, this attraction is a novel experience due to Malaysia’s hot and humid weather; it’s a great place to see kids playing and adults taking in the sights.

Genting Bowl
First World Plaza has a bowling alley - Genting Bowl. One of the highlights at Genting Bowl is the glow-in-the-dark bowling. For those of you who feel like the indoor theme park has nothing to offer you, do make sure you take some time off your shopping trip and drop by this bowling alley and experience a one-of-a-kind bowling session with the family!

Now that the entertainment part is covered, let’s talk hotels and accommodation. The hotels up here in Genting Highlands are stylish accommodations with impeccable service and spacious guestrooms with breathtaking mountain views. Here are some of our favourite.
This hotel is officially the world’s largest hotel in 2015, as it adjoins the First World Plaza which boasts 500,000 square feet of indoor theme park, a shopping center and food heaven. Right at the main entrance, a lush, tropical rainforest greets their guests and all their rooms are modern, comfortable and practical.

Awana Hotel – Resorts World Genting
Indulge in five-star luxury while enjoying the breathtaking view of a majestic mountain range, and make full use of their 18-hole golf course, heated swimming pool, and other sports facilities.  At Awana, the only main rival for comfort is their beautiful, stunning view.

One thing about Genting is you need to plan your holidays well as the crowd can be crazy at times and rooms will be totally sold out. So it’s always best check with Traveloka on the availability and also for the best deals in town.
