Called Genting Highlands, or Resorts World Genting, Malaysia’s self-proclaimed City of Entertainment is a hill resort town located an hour outside of Kuala Lumpur. Theme parks and Malaysia’s only legal casinos draw visitors every year to the cooler climate offered at this elevation. Domestic weekend travelers are frequent visitors here, but with all that is offered, international travelers are quite common as well.
BR> Visitors to Genting Highland will find all the hotels operate with the major casinos, and a range of slot machines and table games including baccarat, roulette, and Caribbean stud poker can be played. Families with children will find the Genting Outdoor Theme Park and First World Indoor Theme Park more accommodating, with the latter being located within First World Plaza
. The plaza has not only an indoor theme park, but also replicas of random landmarks from around the world and a low-rent shopping mall.
The Genting Skyway
provides for great views and an excellent entrance to the Genting Highlands, taking 15 minutes for the gondola lift to reach the summit. Outside the world of entertainment, the Chin Swee Caves Temple
sits in one of the most scenic sites. Genting Strawberry Leisure Farm and Highlands Mushroom share a similar location and are also popular sites for visitors.
