Awesome place

The proximity to KL is an excellent feature that make going to Gen ting Highlands very easy and without wastage of time . The weather is excellent with clouds covering the parking area itself. The cable car or the sky walk is an experience that has no match . This place has four hotels with different character of its own and you may pickup any based on your budget and taste. However, you may end up using the room only for sleeping and shower. There are TV and fridge in each room but you may not need any of them . The entire set up has shopping arcade, eateries, fine dinning, bars, game zone, theme park and casino spread over all the four hotels . You may not get an opportunity to get out of the entire facility but you should not miss an opportunity to go out of hotel lobby after 10pm or early morning to feel the clouds in the parking area itself . Dinning at Spice Garden Fine Dinning is a must to complete this trip

Best place to let it all out

There are numbers of buses operating from Kuala Lumpur to Gen ting Highlands from 8:00 am. The buses drops you at the terminal that is located beside the Skyway cable car base station. You will have to take the cable cars to reach the resorts . . Else, you can drive till Gen ting Highlands. You will also get the "Outdoor Theme Park" passes along with your ticket which is a cheap deal. Please make sure that you already have it instead of getting it on the spot. Try leaving early so that you can finish all the rides and also if it rains, because 90% of them will opt for cable cars and you don't want to wait for hours just to go down when it's pouring . If you're driving, you can stop at Chin Swee Temple. It's a very peaceful area. Outdoor Theme Park is the main attraction here. They have varieties of rides and water slides. The indoor theme park is equally good but I would prefer the outdoor one anyday. I ain't a huge fan of the Snow World here. Gen ting is also one of the shopping destinations. Weekends will be crowded as the people from Kuala Lumpur comes down not only for shopping but also for Casino the Gen ting. The hotels here are pretty okay. I haven't stayed overnight yet because one day is more than enough. Weather here can be challenging if you want to complete the entire rides. For a change, this place is cool as it rains most of the time. It's a perfect escape from Kuala Lumpur. Please be very careful as it gets foggy and the curve roads can be very dangerous. Also note the turns, there is no you turns on that road so be very careful when you exit the road for Gen ting. Carry a jacket and raincoats as well happy riding ;)
