Describing It

Dubbed as Malaysia’s Capital City of Entertainment, Genting Highlands takes its role quite seriously. There are two primary reasons why most people visit the resort - first, of course, is gambling and the second reason is the theme park and entertainment here.

Set atop the Titiwangsa Mountains, it is the only legal gambling outfit in all of Malaysia, and be it late at night or wee hours of the morning, you will always find people pouring in to the casinos located throughout the Highlands.

If gambling is not your thing, Genting has a number of theme parks to get your adrenaline pumping. Feel the thrill of flying high in rides like the Space Shot. Brace yourself and enter the Dinosaur Land in the Genting Outdoor Theme Park, an exquisite time machine journey to the Lost World. Let yourself be tossed or suspended in the air. Dive into chilly waters at the Genting Water Theme Park perched at an altitude of 6,000 feet. Genting is packed with entertainment for all age groups.

Finding your way around the Highlands should be the least of your worries, as the resort is very much like a world of its own. With no real streets here, most of the places in the city are connected via underground ways, tunnels and escalators. At any turn you may come across a casino, a karaoke act or a rock concert.

An added advantage of visiting Genting Highlands is its natural surroundings and cool climate, a far cry from the typical Malaysian heat, making it a popular spot for tourists and locals alike who come here to enjoy the ‘European’ weather.
