One of the most popular tourist attractions near Malaysia is undoubtedly the Genting Highland. Located just 45 minutes from the capital city of KL, Genting is one of the most sought after quick holiday destinations in the country.

This lovely hill station is approximately 1,800 metres above sea level and is known for its Vegas-style casinos and outdoor and indoor theme parks. The cool mountain air is the perfect setting to enjoy the fastest cable car system in the region. There are also plenty of other activities to enjoy, including stargazing, jungle trekking and firefly watching, among others. 

Here’s how you can make the most of the beautiful Genting Highland weather and scenery:

Gold and Country Resort:

The mountainous range of Banjaran Titiwangsa is the backdrop for the beautiful Awana Genting Highlands Resort. The landscaped golf course, with chilly winds, is the perfect setting to escape the heat of the mainland. 

The championship golf course at the Genting Highland Hotel is an excellent option to tee off with ease.
