Situated in Kuala Lumpur, Genting Highlands is a must visit. Stay in Kuala Lumpur for a few dys and take a trip here. There are bus services that leave everyday from Kuala Lumpur at fixed times. You can go on a day trip or you can spend one night there. Spending a night is a better option as you get to see the night life as well.In case you are staying make sure you do your booking way in advance. There is a designated bus stop at KL which will take you there. It is about a one and a half hour ride which also depends on the traffic. You go way up into the mountain and from there you can take a cable cart to the Genting Highlands. The experience is truly magical. You can see the valleys and hills down below. But if you are scared of heights opt for a private car to transport you to your hotel.
Do not carry too much luggage as there is no one to help you carry it. The hotels offer no room service facilities as the idea is to be out all day. All the hotels are inter connected and entertainment is mostly indoors. This is a great place for the kids as there is an outdoor as well as an outdoor theme park . It is colourful and music is going on all day. Casinos are open for twenty four hours and the whole atmosphere is a very casual one.
It is quite cold so carry a sweater for the kids as it is high up on the mountain. If you are lucky you may be able to see a show at night. This is also a show where the kids are allowed. Because of the show which is very good it is a good idea to stay the night.
Tickets for the outdoor and indoor parks can be bought together but do the outdoor one first as it shuts in the evening and the indoor on the other hand goes on till late at night. A pass is only valid for one day and the kids are sure to have a blast. For going back you once again need to take the cable cart and go to the bus stand and the bus takes you back to KL. So have a good trip.
