Arriving in the Genting Highlands, one is likely to feel rather awe-struck. Jutting out of the top of the most verdant of hills, the resort offers spectacular views of the surrounding area and countryside. Peaks and hills pop up out of the clouds creating a magnificent and heavenly atmosphere, one that seems exceptionally different to the hot bustle of the Malay archipelago’s less vertiginous regions thanks to the spring time weather and temperature that Ulu Kali Mountain experiences all year round. Many visitors’ first experiences of the resort will be via the amazing cable cars that run up to the top of the mountain, a trip that offers views that one can only describe as one of a kind.

In terms of entertainment, Genting excels. There’s an indoor theme park featuring all manner of fun and exciting rides for people of every age as well as an indoor snow area! The indoor park is surrounded by a huge range of restaurants, bars and eateries too; the Coffee Terrace buffet restaurant, western-themed Bubbles & Bites, and the exquisite Genting Palace Restaurant, to name but a few. The resort also features an even more exciting outdoor theme park featuring dizzying rides and even more restaurants, making this a place where no one could feasibly run out of things to do and see.

Resorts World Genting also features the country’s only casino with multiple outlets throughout the complex, the Casino de Genting. Here players can enjoy all of the slots, table games and experiences one would only usually find on the Las Vegas Strip, however it’s a good idea to get in a little practice first at an online casino like Euro Palace beforehand in order to get the absolute most from the glittering and stylish casino climes!

For adults, Genting Highlands features even more amazing things to do. The hotels dotting the resort feature a great number of bars and terraces that look out over the surrounding countryside, and late night thrills can also be enjoyed at the Genting Club 360 Bar, Cloud 9 nightclub and The Patio wine and whisky bar.
