Genting Highlands – Getting There
Genting Highlands is found in Pahang along the Titiwangsa Mountain Range, surrounding the boundary of Selangor state. This tourist destination has a few of the greatest highways and roads linked to neighbouring cities and Kuala Lumpur . Most visitors drive up themselves by automobile, but buses and cabs can also be common ways of transportation. On wide but windy roads, travellers climb up the mountain incline slowly in the bottom of Genting Highlands after leaving Karak Highway, passing through Gohtong Jaya town to the summit before a steep ascend past Chin Swee Temple. A cable car service can also be accessible from Gohtong Jaya to the resort and theme park.
Most travellers will begin their journey from Kuala Lumpur, the closest city that will be linked with a highway and two important trunk roads. From Kuala Lumpur, the most used route is the Karak Highway that’s reached in Ampang/Gombak in the end of the MRR2 Freeway. Drive time takes about one hour, using a space covering around 35km to the summit. The drive that is apparently slow is because of the steep and windy mountain road that begins in the bottom of Genting Highlands.
Departures continue throught the night and day at ticket costs between MYR5-12, depending on place from KL. You can find also express buses from Singapore as well as other states across Malaysia (check local listings).
As Genting Highlands is an integrated resort development, the theme park, draws and hotels on the summit are linked by means of a labyrinth of passageways and paths, which makes it comparatively simple to cover the whole area in small amount of time. As itis a handy way up the summit with spectacular views of the valley many visitors will make use of the cable car service from Genting Skyway in Gohtong Jaya town. At the summit, Genting Resort in a loop goes about and through, using a junction to leave down back to Kuala Lumpur via the Chin Swee Temple Bypass. Drive as the road is steep and be gentle on the brakes.
Resorts World Genting may be located at a high altitude, but rest assured, it is actually easily accessible by various types of transportation.
