Tour Packages for Genting Highlands have been in huge demand for the last two years and the popularity of Genting Highlands as a major tourism and entertainment locale has been on the rise. Working in the travel domain for the last two years I have some knowledge about “tanah tingi Genting” as they say in Malay language. So I had this idea of sharing my so called expertise with you. I sincerely hope that this will help you plan a great vacation to Malaysia, especially Genting Highlands.

 

Genting is famous world over for its soothing climate and complete entertainment package that it provides for all types of tourists. May it be the kids or elderly; nature lovers or gamblers; trekkers or honeymooners; cinestars or musicians Genting has something for everyone. Located around 1850 meters above sea level Genting Highland is actually a mountain top among the Titiwangsa Mountains. To make it easier for you, it is around 45 Kms form Kuala Lumpur the Capital of Malaysia. On the political map of Malaysia this place finds a prominence at the border of Pahang and Selangor states. Genting enjoys an enjoyable climate throughout the year that oscillates between 16°C and 24°C.

 

The whole entertainment city is surrounded by lush green equatorial forests that is said to be more than hundred million years old.

 

The attraction in Genting include Casinos, Resorts, a couple of Theme parks, world class shopping malls, Golf courses. Two of the special attractions that I would like to mention here are the Ripley Believe It or Not Museum and the Sky diving simulation system powered by a wind turbine. These two are my personal favorites. For accommodation there are many hotels in different economic ranges form 3 star to 5 star. Apart form this there are regular concerts and high profile events that are organized here. Some of the famous artists to have performed at Genting include Panic at the Disco, One Republic, Black Eyed Peas, The Pussycat Dolls, Westlife, Mayday and many more. Genting has also hosted some of the big star studded celebrity events recently like MTV Asia Awards, Malaysian Idol, Zee Cine Awards and Lux Style Awards. Genting Highland has the only land based casino in Malaysia.

 

You may reach the City of Entertainment from Kuala Lumpur by in an hours drive. Cars on rent are available form travel agents based in Kualalumpur and prior booking on Internet is also possible. I would suggest you try the World’s fastest cable car that connects Genting Highlands to Kuala Lumpur. It would be an experience that would last a life time.
