Genting Highlands has been around since the ’70s. So yeah, its been around for a really long time. It’s even older than some of us!

The main attractions of this highland resort are their casinos and theme park.

Unfortunately, their famous theme park closed down in September 2013 to make way for a brand new 20th Century Fox theme park which is reportedly still under construction.

So what else can we do there aside from gambling? Check out these fun activities aside from betting your money away!

 

1. Warm your soul with a hot cup of coffee in the middle of the night

There are quite a few cafes located at the top of Genting but everybody’s favourite seems to be Starbucks, probably due to its location which is open air so you can feel the cooling misty environment. Perfect for a warm drink!

Address: First World Hotel, Level T1, Lot F/L 1.4, Genting Highland

Operating Hours:
Sundays to Thursdays – 9am to 4am
Fridays and Saturdays – 9am to 5am

 

2. Keep your body from freezing by eating all the hot and spicy food

There are a bunch of restaurants in Genting Highlands itself, but there are more down at Gohtong Jaya too. Nothing beats consuming deliciously hot and spicy food in the cold weather.

Aside from piping hot coffee, spicy food will definitely heat up your body in the chilly weather!

Just kidding! The temple halfway up Genting is definitely worth a visit. As for the ‘go to hell’ part, the temple features some stories of the Chinese and their beliefs of the 9 levels of hell.

Alternatively, if those gruesome statues are just too much for you to handle, then you can check out the Buddha and Kuan Yin statues at the temple. You can even climb up the pagoda and check out the spectacular view.

The pagoda is only opened from 7am to 5pm though!

Multiple artists have made the Arena of Stars their stage for some of the best concerts ever. Although predominantly singers from China, Taiwan and Hong Kong rock this stadium, many artists from around the world perform there too.

Of course, concerts don’t happen everyday and tickets are often sold out earlier than the day itself. So, remember to get your tickets beforehand!

Check out their website for more information.

The cable cars heading up and down Genting are sometimes filled with naughty couples trying to get things on during the ride. See if you can spot them!

Also, you yourself can ride the brand new Awana Skyway too if driving up and down windy roads is just too much for you. Tickets cost RM8 per person.

Operating Hours: Daily – 7am to 12am

 

6. Get high clubbing in Cloud 9

We definitely cannot deny how haunted Genting is. In such a secluded area surrounded by trees and dangerous cliffs, there are many cases of ghostly sightings.

Some very adventurous people have purposely made trips to this place in the middle of the night in hopes of finding something creepy to scare themselves lifeless. Why not try it yourself?

 

8. Shop at the brand new outlets!
