Genting Highlands is one of the most popular attractions in Malaysia and its popular not only among the locals but also gamblers as far as Japan , China etc. It's not in the same category as the other famous ones because it does not need to be since it is the only casino themed park in Malaysia. It's cool up... More

Please do not compare or expect this place to be like Las Vegas, Macau or The Sands in Singapore. This place is different, it is rather old and small but still acceptable. Prices are much cheaper than going to those mentioned places casinos. To get there:- There is bus to get you to Genting from KL-Central. It will stop half... More

Nothing special. Only you should play. Can't breathe easily because of too many smokers. I was in Las Vegas and those casinos were more beautiful and luxury

My wife and I had a great trip from KL to the Genting Highlands by car and back. Our driver was terrific and we chatted away all the way there and back. The scenery once we got into the foothills was magnificent. The cable car ride up to the peak and down was unbelievable. The buildings, view at the top... More

I salute the amazing speed the security -(within one hour) they solved my case of leaving my money in the kiosk without collecting. I had punched in my password and amount of money wanted. I left immediately upon collecting my Gentings World card in my excitement to meet up my friend for dinner. Almost immediately, I remembered my money left... More

Worth applying for the Genting card when you get there as you will get discounts at food outlets and playing slots etc gets you points...you will need to take your passport as ID. Totally different dynamic from casinos in Western countries and note other reviewers comments about the spitting and staring which can be off putting. We have got used... More

It was fun, you need to get registered before. Can try your luck. It was addictive and we end up loosing some money. They don't allow you to take pictures inside and even make me delete one photo which I had taken accidentally.

We went here hoping for an amazing time, although we did have fun there a few things to be aware of. If you western (international) you need to register to play in the casino that takes AGES. (1-2 hours) It is FULL of Chinese people who spit everywhere (Inside included) They also have a tendency to stare at western women... More
