Genting Highlands is Malaysia’s vibrant mountain resort, less than an hour’s drive from the capital city of Kuala Lumpur. Located on the 1,800m Gunung Ulu Kali mountain, Genting Highlands is surrounded by rugged terrain and dense tropical rainforest. But nowadays, the resort has become a major international entertainment hub, featuring everything from a theme park and casino to a huge shopping centre and accommodation.
Plans for the construction of the resort were drawn up in the 1960s, before which the area was a largely undeveloped tropical wilderness. Malaysian-Chinese businessman Lim Goh Tong came up with the idea after paying a visit to the Cameron Highlands – situated north of Genting resort in Pahang – and was won over by the beautiful views and crisp air.
Three theme parks have been built at Genting Highlands – the Genting Outdoor Theme Park, First World Indoor Theme Park and the aptly named Water Park. These are home to more than 20 signature attractions, including the white-knuckle Corkscrew – a double-loop rollercoaster that reaches speeds of up to 45mph and loops at heights of 90ft above the ground.
After dark, venues such as the Arena of Stars and Genting International Showroom play host to performances from some of the biggest names in comedy, theatre, music and more. Bargain-hunters won’t be disappointed by the First World Plaza, described by the resort as Malaysia’s coolest shopping destination.
Today, Genting Highlands remains one of Malaysia’s top holiday destinations and is especially popular with families, children and school trips.
The cable car ride is one of Genting Highland’s most popular tourist attractions, providing a quick method of travel to the peak that overlooks rainforest valleys stretching all the way to KL on a good day. Awana Skyway is the primary cable car line that begins from Awana Bus Station near Gohtong Jaya town that ends at SkyAvenue on the summit, able to ferry 3,000 people every hour at full capacity.
The 2.8km ride takes ten minutes with gondolas that accommodate ten passengers; a premium glass-bottomed type seats six visitors with a view of ground below. Visitors can park at Awana Car Park where 4,500 bays are available; rides occur daily from 7am till midnight. When Awana Skyway is closed for maintenance, the older Genting Skyway provides an alternative cable car route.
Chin Swee Cave Temple is a popular tourist attraction perched a few km before the peak of Genting Highlands on a sharp, rocky slope. Originally a cave temple, years of development have produced an expansive physical complex beyond the original altar chamber, rooted in traditional Chinese architecture expressed by ornate prayer halls, colourful statues, opulent archways and its iconic pagoda.
The temple was built by the founder of Genting (Lim Goh Tong) to venerate Buddhist figure Chin Swee, a year after he constructed the first resort and casino in 1975. The site was chosen as it reminded him of his birth village’s landscape in Fujian, China. Constructed over 18 years with a foundation dug from solid bedrock, modern machinery was eschewed because of harsh terrain.
The Genting Highlands Strawberry Leisure Farm is a popular tourist attraction in Gohtong Jaya, nestled directly at town opposite the Mawar and Bunga Raya Apartments. The farm can easily be reached by taking left from the roundabout past Hotel Seri Malaysia (if coming from Karak Highway), and following the road all the way to its end.
Strawberries are not the only cultivations – mushrooms, herbs, flowers and hydroponic vegetables are also grown here commercialy in adjoining nurseries. Besides the farm’s marketplace, visitors can also purchase strawberries by plucking them directly and paying by weight from 100gm onwards – this is a very popular family activity.
Happy Bee Farm and Insect World is located along the main road a short distance before Gohtong Jaya town – where visitors can look at local honey production and even sample some of this sweet delight. The admission ticket provides for a guided tour across the premises, including honey tasting, viewing a gallery of live and mounted insects, and complimentary honey-based drink at the cafe.

Bukit Bintang (Bintang Walk) is well-regarded as Kuala Lumpur’s
trendiest shopping and entertainment district, offering everything from
sleek shopping centres and five-star hotels to all-day restaurants and
vibrant nightclubs. Thanks to its central location, it is also fairly
easy to get to Bukit Bintang from anywhere in Kuala Lumpur via public
transportation, including monorail, taxis, and buses. One of the most
iconic landmarks here is Pavilion KL, an upscale shopping mall that
houses European luxury retailers such as Coach, Diane Von Furstenberg,
Dolce & Gabbana, Juicy Couture, MaxMara, Versace, and Yves Saint
Laurent. Also set within Bukit Bintang district is Jalan Alor, a stretch
of atmospheric air-conditioned Chinese seafood restaurants and hawker
stalls where you can enjoy an array of local delicacies by the roadside
until the wee hours of morning. Nightlife in Bukit Bintang is also
legendary, particularly the Changkat Bukit Bintang area. Whether you are
looking for a live music scene, a posh see-and-be-seen nightclub, or an
opulent rooftop bar, Bukit Bintang has it all.
