Welcome to Genting Highlands

Genting Highlands

The Genting Highlands holiday resort has none of the colonial old world atmosphere of the other hill stations. Its main purpose is to entertain Kuala Lumpur's more affluent citizens. To this end, the Genting Highlands resort offers a casino, cable car, four-hectare (10-acre) artificial lake, 18-storey hotel, theme parks, horse ranch and a golf course. The hill resort is less than one hour's drive from Kuala Lumpur and offers a welcome respite from the city's humidity, standing at 6,562 feet (2,000m) above sea level. Most Malaysians flock here on holiday to enjoy the vibrant nightlife of dinner shows, discos and gambling.
