    What to Do in Genting Highlands

    Genting Highlands – located just 45 minutes away from the Kuala Lumpur – tops the list for a quick holiday getaway in Malaysia. Boasting round-the-clock exciting entertainment, this nippy hill station – perched approximately 1800 metres above sea level – is immensely popular for its Vegas-style casino and its indoor and outdoor theme parks. Bask in the salubrious mountain air while you enjoy the host of entertainment options; ride South East Asia’s longest – and the world’s fastest – cable car system, roll the dice at the exclusive Casino de Genting – Malaysia’s only casino – or spend the day enjoying the thrills and spills of the wildly popular indoor and outdoor theme parks. Genting’s cool mountain air makes jungle trekking, star gazing and firefly watching an infinitely pleasurable experience; if you’re looking for an adrenaline rush, you can also take part in abseiling, indoor rock climbing and flying fox activities to get your blood pumping.

Casino de Genting

Genting Highlands raison d'être, the Casino de Genting may not be as exciting as a Las Vegas outfit where sparkling dresses, glittering neon lights and scantily-clad showgirls abound, but its Malaysia’s only legal land-based casino. Men in batik shirts and women in pretty frocks crowd the tables and punters line the slot machines waiting for the big payout. Featuring 3140 slot machines and 426 table games, there’s definitely a fun time to be had here.

If you’ve ever fancied being strapped safely into a harness and helmet and then being launched off a ramp into a dipterocarp forest, then here’s your chance. This airborne adventure sends you hurtling down a 100-metre wire strung down the side of the hill; it’s the perfect way for you to bond with friends and family and requires minimum level of instruction, making it the perfect quick-thrill ride.
