Awana to Genting

Hi,

I am plannning to stay a night at Theme Park Hotel and a night at Awana.

Can I check, is the Awana cable car still close?

How long does it take for a cable car ride to Genting?

Can I check if i can carry my luggage on to the cable car or must i take a taxi from genting to Awana? ANy limitation to the size of luggae?

Is there a luggae handling service and if yes how much does it cost?

Awana is at the base of genting, so i would suggest that you stay at genting itself. instead of theme park hotel, go for first world, its right in the heart of things... with theme park you will have to walk a bit.

luggage can be taken on the cable car if the bags are 22 inches or less. I've taken bigger with me, but sometimes thats a risk in case they decide to check.

if you have bigger bags, then you can book them at the lower skyway station. Its MYR 25 for 2 bags up and back down. Collect bags from lobby of first world hotel

Thanks RainmanMumbai.

Unfortunately my trip is a bit last minute thus the hotels are fully booked.

I end up booking my 2 nights at Awana.

Ok enjoy

Though Awana is a great property, its quite inconvenient for genting.. you will have to keep taking the cable car up and down

I'm currently staying at Awana resort. Great property this is first of all. Transit to Genting Highlands is not a problem at all. There are free shuttles between Awana and Genting every 1 hour almost through out the day and night.

You don't have to pay to reach Awana either. There are free shuttles every 30 mins between the lower skyway and this hotel.
