“Free hourly shuttle bus from First World hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 17, 2012

Took a free shuttle from First World hotel, the bus trip took only 10 minutes before arriving at the temple. The scenery and air was great. Do visit if you stay at First World or a hotel nearby. I think the temple is built around caves as you can still see the caves along parts of the temple. there is a pagoda that you can climb right to the top to if you like to get some exercise. Basically you see a lot of clouds once you get to the level of the main entrance of the temple as you look outside... not sure if you want to climb further up if it is super windy that day. The architecture is pretty too if you like to snap some photos.

Vegetarian restaurant very affordable, portion generous and tasted much much better than the food in the hotel (ie. restaurants, cafes). You can order noodles / fried rice and enjoy it for less than RM 10. They sell some vegetarian food items too. There is a foodstuff store and small shop selling bracelets, small items etc.

Regular stop before going up to Genting. Different Chinese Gods and deities. You can also light firecrackers on special Chinese calendar.

“Great view from the temple”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 7, 2012

First time visiting this hotel. According to travelling companions, the place has underwent major renovation to become what it is now.

Had lunch at the vegetarian restaurant, would not recommend to order the set lunch. We ordered dishes such as Roasted Goose, Fried Mushrooms, Pork with Mui Choy which were very nice.

A must-do activity would be to head up to the top of the temple and take in the amazing view. This will also be where Mr Lim Goh Tong's statue is located. We also had a great time looking at the statues depicting historical figures or heroes / heroines from mythical stories. Buddhists can also offer prayers at the temple, there is also a spring water behind the main altar for washing hands/face or drinking.

I wil definitely go back to this temple on my next visit to Genting.

“chinese cultural”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 18, 2012

A good way to view chinese cultural. Have to do a bit of walking if you want to really see the whole temple. Took about one hour to walk around. There are some statues showing the stories about 18 Levels of hell. A bit terrifing as they will show about the punishments in hell. Be careful if you are bring children. They have shuttle bus to and fro first world hotel, but only once per hour.

“Peaceful”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 2, 2012

Tried the veg restaurant before. Liked it. Price was alright. There are a few food vendors near the entrance selling overpriced fried oily fish cakes, Tau fu, tea eggs, fu chuks etc. sigh. But the sky terrace...ah, I do like coming here each time I come to Genting. It's peaceful here.
