Nestled at the peak of Mount Ulu Kali, on the border between the states of Selangor and Pahang, lies Malaysia’s City of Entertainment: Genting Highlands. The resort-town now known as Resorts World Genting, was first established in 1965 by Tan Sri Lim Goh Tong and became the first and only casino park in Malaysia.
Compared to the its neighbour, Cameron Highlands which is more earthly in nature, Genting Highlands today is the ultimate Las Vegas-style playground with its vast network of casinos, hotels, shopping malls and amusement parks. The peak of this hill station stands at 1,800 metres within the Titiwangsa mountain range, offering cooler montane weather averaging at around 22°C during the day.
Attractions include both family-friendly indoor theme parks and cultural sites, as well as luxurious five-star hotels, branded retail outlets and renowned nightlife.
