Genting Highlands is an integrated resort development comprising hotels, casinos and a theme park in Pahang, perched on the peak of Gunung Ulu Kali at 1,800 meters high. Nestled near the border of Selangor within an hour's drive from Kuala Lumpur (about 35km), Genting Resort presents a popular weekend getaway from the city heat, conveniently connected by the Karak Highway and major trunk roads, along with a cable car service from the satellite town of Gohtong Jaya. On a clear day, the peak overlooks lush valleys of rainforest stretching towards KL, a breathtaking view for visitors as they enjoy the cooling weather and serene mountain environment.

Genting Highlands has a cooling climate between 20°C to 25°C during the day and 15°C to 20°C during the night. Misty weather is a prevalent element and thunder storms are frequent towards the year end. However, you can visit Genting Highlands anytime, as the roads up are made of sturdy construction that resist most landslides. If you prefer a dry holiday, the best time to come here would lie between March and September when the rainfall is generally least. Be sure to wear some thick clothing at night if you're susceptible to cold. The mist around the peak can obscure panoramic views of Kuala Lumpur city and the landscape below, so the best time for a view is usually the early morning or late evenings. Finally, low peak seasons are the best time for cheaper accommodation rates and smaller crowds.

Casino, Nature, Golf

The major draw of Genting Highlands is undoubtedly the casinos, as the resort represents the only legal gambling outfit in Malaysia, and locals just love to stake their fortunes (and property) on a game of dice or cards. After a day of fun at the theme park and exploring the various attractions at the peak, various restaurants provide a tantalising array of local and international food. For avid golfers, the Awana Resort offers an 18-hole golf course nestled within a lush valley, with dramatic views of the rainforest. Finally, eco activities await at the surrounding foothills, which hide magnificent waterfalls and pretty nature parks.
