Resorts World Genting (Genting Highlands)
Big, brash fun
What we say:
Most independent travellers coming to Kuala Lumpur are probably unaware that one of Asia's largest entertainment and gambling complexes is less than a hour by bus.
Located at about 1,700 metres above sea level, Resorts World Genting is all about having loud, brash, fun, whether that be a roller-coaster ride, a glitzy pop concert, or the only legal gambling in Malaysia.
Regular express buses leave from several locations, the most useful being KL Sentral and Puduraya. Most of the buses stop at the bottom of the Skyway, a 3.4-kilometre cable car ride to the resort itself.
The combined ticket (bus and cable car) costs less than 10 ringgit. The resort is best avoided at weekends or public holidays when it can get uncomfortably busy.
