Genting Highlands (Pahang, Malaysia)

If you love adventure and games, Genting Highlands is the very ideal place to visit. Located about 2,000 meters above sea level, Genting can only be reach by road. Even its only about 50 KM from Kuala Lumpur, driving to Genting hilltop will take about 1 - 1 1/2 hours(depend to your driving skill and are you brave enough to drive thru its roadside).

If you brave enough for height, just try for Genting cable car instead of driving to the peak. I can guaranteed; you will me amaze with our rainforest.

The temperature here is between 16 and 23 degrees, and its getting colder in the night. If you wish to stay here and you are to skinny to cold weather, please bring your own extra blanket. To western visitors which used to cold weather, I believed this temperature here is nothings.

For me, Genting is the ideal place to have fun. Genting offer a lot of indoor and outdoor games. Outdoor games such as Cockscrew roller coaster, spaceshot,Pirate Ship,Flying Coaster, spinner, Super Toboggan, Cyclone, Bumper Boat, Flying Dragon, Rolling Thunder, Mine Train, Sungei Rejang Flume Ride, and Grand Prix Fun Kart will take your breath away.

If you come with your family and wish to spent your time in group, you can try Monorail, Dinosaurland, Tea Cup, Astro Fighter, Flying Jumbo, Pirate Train, Boating, Mini Train, Antique Car, Matahari, and Double Deck Carousel.

But if you prefer be a guard while your children have fun, I suggest you bring them to Crazy Space Lab, Kiddie Rides, Rodeo Rider and Children Playpen.

Besides games, the main attraction here is Casino. This is the only place in Malaysia which Casino is legal. But its only for non muslim. I'm not sure, is this law is enforced to overseas visitors; however I'm very sure Malaysian Muslim who enter this Casino and got caught, they will sent to prison or pay a fine.
