Chin Swee is actually a complex of temples midway on way to Genting Highlands. They have built a nice air-conditioned path from cable car station. A refreshing place and a good view of the valley.

This beautiful temple is located at the last quarter uphill drive to Genting Highland on the right side of the main road. There are quite plenty to venture in and around the temple area. Amongst them there's a more challenging stairs up to the pagoda...More

It is a beautiful attraction in Genting Highland. I recommend to visit the place by cable car through Awana skyway. Worth to visit Chinese temple.

It takes 10 minutes to do this attraction and in fact it takes more time to take the escalator down from the cable car than to do this tacky and futile thing.

Hi TA members, After much browsing through this forum, I have created this itinerary for my trip to KL in August. Really looking forward to your feedback on the feasibility of it, given I will be traveling with a 9-month old infant and wont be able to cover too much in a day. Please also share your thoughts on whether a day trip to Malacca would be doable, or would it be a bit too much for 1 day?

All looks good except for this one : Petrosains Science Discovery Centre. This guy is in Suria KLCC one of the top floors. Maybe you want to bundle them together. You could spend 1-3 hours depend on how fast you walk and view stuff there. Melaka Day trip is doable depend on how many places you visiting in Melaka. Travel time is 2hours one way. Keep that in mind. Wed- Batu caves, there is lot of staircase steps to climb just in case cause you got an infant. If you figures this out then...More

Yes you can do all these 3 in 1 day - but it's going to be one really really hectic and rushed day, so definitely, DO NOT attempt to do all the above in 1 day! I would simply avoid the caves, and just go to genting. Its cool, great cable car ride, and there are 2 theme parks which you can do for about US$ 30... outdated, but worth the price. Others here will say no, but for the price its absolutely fine, and it will keep you engaged for the full day. Chin swee temple - just take the...More
