Any Malaysian getaway vacation will never be complete without going to Genting Highlands. Genting is definitely one of the best places to visit in Malaysia with wide arrays of places, events & happenings to experience from casino, theme park, shopping & entertainment experience. For first timer, Genting Highlands is suitable for day trip if you happen to be in Kuala Lumpur or a minimum 2 nights stay to chill and relax. It is accessible by roads and coach.
My travel experience started in KL Sentral Bus Station going to Genting Highlands. But I ended up getting a taxi going there as the bus timing was inconvenient due to festive season (fully booked). I pursued going to Genting by a taxi driver offer of RM170 (2-way taxi ride) price. It was quite expensive but considering my limited time, I decided to go.
My first stop was Chocolate Paradise, recommended by my taxi driver Eddy which was a cocoa boutique selling varities of special flavored chocolates. Prices were quite high but it's really good as pasalubong for friends. Then I went to Genting Skyway which was the entry point to Resorts World Genting. It was my first experience to ride a cable car & it was a big check for my bucketlist.
One-way ride will cost you RM6 so I took the 2-way ride at the ticket counter (RM12). I was amazed when I reached the place with their indoor theme park, vast hotels, casinos with crowds coming from all over the world. Genting is like Tagaytay or Baguio of Pinas due to its cool climate ranging from 16-24'C all year round.
I only gave myself 2 hours here so I quickly took photos of the whole area as much as I could. I satisfied my cravings for cupcakes, grabbed frappe in Starbucks & had some me-time moment.
