meters above sea level, Genting Highlands, a magnificent city on the hilltop,
is but a mere 50km from Kuala Lumpur. It offers a cool respite from the
hustle and bustle of the city capital. Crisp invigorating mountain air
complemented by majestic scenery spreads out before your eyes. Lush green
tropical rainforest shrouded in a veil of perpetual mist makes it hard
to believe that you are just minutes away from the sweltering equatorial
heat and the ever dusty city. Here, consistent temperatures between 16
and 23 degrees provide natural air conditioning.
Highlands Resort offers the bountiful harvest of nature together with
a staggering potpourri of international standard facilities. Besides the
cool air and scenic surroundings, this hilltop city also houses the country's
one and only casino. However, one should not underestimate its value as
this casino has been featured in many films produced by Hong Kong, Taiwan,
and even Hollywood. Besides the casino, this hilltop resort also has a
theme park of its own and an entertainment center.
