Resorts World Genting


Resorts World Genting or Genting Highlands is a resort situated on top of a hill. It is a combination of hotels, casinos, restaurants, retail outlets, and of course the main purpose of our trip - theme parks.

There is a Genting Express Bus Service available from KL Sentral. The ticket booth is located at the lower ground floor.
That morning, we planned to buy our Genting tickets before we leave for Batu Caves so we can still get an earlier trip. However, we failed to locate the ticket booth before our scheduled departure to Batu Caves so we just purchased our tickets as soon as we got back to KL Sentral.
Lucky us, we managed to get the last 6 tickets for the next available trip at 12:30 PM. One-way fare is RM10.30 and includes the Genting Skyway (cable car ride).

After an hour and 15 minutes of traveling passing through highways and zigzag roads, we were finally dropped off at the Lower Genting Skyway station.

It was way past lunch time so we stuffed ourselves first before going to the theme park.

We rested a bit after lunch and proceeded to our main agenda. The wind was cold outside but luckily  there's no fog. We approached the ticket booth and bought the One Day Unlimited
Ride Pass for the Outdoor Theme Park. Ticket price for adult is RM50.

Flying Coaster
Flying Coaster - the most uncomfortable ride ever. I wouldn't try this again. The waiting time is much longer than the actual ride. By waiting time I mean we're actually on the flyer in a standing position waiting for our turn. I think there were still 3 flyers ahead of us. I was wearing flip-flops so I was asked to remove it and had to endure the cold steel steps.

I almost forgot that we rode this one. Maybe because it isn't as exciting as the Space Shuttle at Enchanted Kingdom.

I'll tell you how this ride works: You will be lifted up to185 feet above the ground and go down at a whooping speed of 67km/hr. Haha!

Binder, Jego and I have tried the ride similar to this one at the Ocean Park in Hong Kong. It is called the Abyss. The Abyss is a bit higher I think.

We are ready to take the challenge!

Dell wasn't able to film our ride because we were seated on the opposite side so we had to do it again. Crazy, I know.

That was our last ride. We were supposed to try the Grand Prix Fun Kart but the staff didn't let us in as they were about to close. The outdoor theme park closes at 6pm and we didn't notice of the time. Again, we were fooled by the sun.

First World Indoor Theme Park

We also explored the First World Plaza. It's got a lot of shopping outlets, restaurants and an indoor theme park.

  3. Hi Tin! I'm Nestle from Dcan but you'd probably (or hopefully) remember me as Capt. I was surprised to see a familiar face in one of the pics here while researching for our upcoming trip to Malaysia. Great stuff! Congratulations!

    While I'm here, might as well ask my questions right? We scored some free stay (7 days, 6 nights to be exact) at Anawa Genting Highlands. I haven't ever been to Malaysia, but while researching, reading on forums and blogs, I'm getting scared because the place seems so far from KL Sentral. If the daily commute to the city is too long, and we opted to stay in the hotel instead, we might get bored for lack of things to do. What do you think? Would it be better to just get the hotel in the city and pass on the free hotel?

    Thanks and nice bumping into you!

    1. Hello Captain!

      Of course I remember you! One week stay? Lucky you!

      Who doesn't want a free stay in a hotel? If you compare the round trip bus fare from Genting-KL (around Php 250-300) to the amount of a day's stay in a hotel, you get to save a lot.

      On the other hand, there's not much to see in Genting except for the theme park and the casinos. I only got to spend a half day there and I got bored already. On the average, it takes 1-1/2 hours to go KL Sentral from Genting. And if you will do it everyday, you'll be exhausted for sure.

      Why not shorten your stay at Awana instead (if they will allow it) and just pick out a cheap accommodation for the remaining days of your stay in KL?

      If you got more questions, I'm more than willing to help! Add me on FB (Tin Zablan)?

    2. Thanks for the reply Tin! The more I read on your blog, the more I like it! My husband and I are just planning on cutting the Malaysia trip short to 3 days and use the remaining days to visit Singapore too. I'll ready my itinerary, and please comment so I can get your expert advise (naks).

      Thanks again!
