Most tourists in the world would go for a short vacation to Malaysia, particularly the famous spots of Kuala Lumpur and Melaka. Since we have visited KL a few times, we decided to give Genting Highlands a shot. Our short trip was more fun than expected. And here’s a list of things you may do should you need a Genting trip soon.
1. First World Hotel
If you are traveling on a budget yet wanting to stay world-class, we suggest you book First World Hotel. For a MYR 118.87 per night good for 2 in a 3 star hotel as this, we had our best option.
2. World landmarks
The highland’s indoor theme park is located on the same building as the First World Hotel. How convenient it was for us just to go up and down the elevators? Designed and decorated with the famous iconic landmarks of the world such as Malaysia’s Petronas Tower, New York’s Statue of Liberty, London’s Big Ben, Venice’s Grand Canal, Japan’s Cherry Blossom, et cetera, the world’s largest indoor theme park becomes very attractive to travelers.
3. Snow World
We spent a total of 15 minutes inside the Snow World, inclusive of 2 dry up and heating sessions! It was an unplanned visit but the MYR 38 per person paid entrance was worth a lifetime’s memory. Imagine us wearing shorts on a 4 degree winter wonderland!
4. Cherry blossom
We’ve always loved cherry blossoms! A minute or two on this beautiful splendor was fulfilling and exciting.
5. Fish spa
Who would have thought that we’d enjoy the 15 minutes fish spa for only MYR 18? Little did we know that this could actually a good alternative to get away from stress. Very glad we’ve tried. And grateful that Genting Highlands offers it to guests.
6. Indoor Rides
Sometimes, we can just be like a child, playfully riding adventure rides. The Rio Float which cost us MYR 9.39 each, gave us an aerial tour overlooking the theme park. It was also great to see superman on air!
One may also kill a time at the movie house, doing marathon.
8. Special occasion
Events and important celebrations can also be done in Genting Highlands. Isn’t it sweet to bring your families and loved ones to such a wonderful a place like this on once in a lifetime moments?
You can never be bored in Genting Highlands. Bowling and arcades are made available for kids and adults alike.
10. Food trip
Food tripping was the best part of our Genting trip. Tasting the local flavors of Malaysia plus paying a little less than Dubai was our big bonus on this memorable out-of-the-country.
Souvenir items such as bags, wallets, shirts, key chains, mugs, nail cutters, and other Malaysian products are everywhere. Some vendors are selling 3 for MYR 10. Though it is still cheaper outside, one may opt to get things here due to time constraints.
Genting Highlands is famous to the world because of its Casino. Most senior citizens of Singapore would just go to Genting for this. We really are not into casino and would not personally recommend doing one. We just had our photo ops here.
13. Cable car
It was unfortunate that the rains are heavy that cable car rides were cancelled that day. Maybe the next time we go up the Sky Avenue, we’ll be able to go via cable and cross the mountainous area of Genting.
Lastly, shopping. Branded luxuries and ready to wear apparel are in Genting too. We didn’t really shop. We just focused on exploring Genting Highlands and maximizing our time together. But if you are a shopper, this could be your place of interest.
