Genting Highlands

With very easy access from Kuala Lumpur, Genting Highlands has become one of the most visited destinations by tourists in Malaysia.

Located at an altitude of 1600m the rolling hills of Genting provide relief from the noise and activity of KL. Popular as a weekend retreat, Genting attracts people who love long drives, gamblers, shoppers, and fun seekers.

The easiest way to reach Genting is to catch a bus from KL Central. Alternatively, the quickest way is to book a taxi costing around 500RM from the city. The taxi can take you to the lobby of the First World Hotel. The buses, however, drop you at the Cable Car terminal where you will buy a return cable car ticket worth 10RM that takes you to Awana Resorts.
