Sorry, Genting is all about the theme park and casino. Nothing much else of note to do there besides these two things.

Well actually genting is a place to relax, if you dont plan to do any of those preharps you can take a taxi down to KL for some shopping before going back, then the rest of your stay you can just walk around and explore, did you do the cable car?Theres some shops at the cablecar station worth a look. Otherwise its eat, sleep & eat again. lol;) Theres a strawberry farm and mushroom farm which you might be interested too. Hope this help and enjoy your holiday;) Theres another highland call Cameron Highland if you wish to have more activity other than casino and theme park.;)

Hello Everyone,

We have some 20 over members of our extended family going on to Genting over the New Year holiday. And monster kiddos inclusive :) Anyways, it'd be the theme park for the kiddos? Any ways we can get the theme park tickets online?

Is the strawberry farm worth a visit? if yes, how do i get there with my monster size of a group?

Any idea if the cable car ride is fun for the kiddos? is the scenary on the cable car worth a visit?

Anything else we can explore? our kiddos' age range 4-14. And there are some elderly folks amongst us, leisure walking is ok but nothing too intensive.

You can get the Holiday Card online, entitles you to a 15% discount. You may then use this card to purchase the theme park tickets.

With old folks, you might want to visit the temple. Not so much for religious but more for sight seeing.
