I love Malaysian food. This is why we were really excited to go to Malaysia. When we were in KL, our excitement transitioned from food to the sites. KL proved to have a lot of sights for tourists like us. Our favorite among them is Genting Highlands. It’s a Theme Park built on top of a mountain.
To get to the park, you can ride a bus from the Central Train station in KL. The bus will take you to the Sky Gondola station. I am afraid of heights – so as much as this ride had an awesome site, I was actually nervous all through out the trip up the mountain.
We were there in November – so the cool mountain weather required a light jacket.
This is my favorite ride in the park. It’s the Spiderman ride. I’ve been in regular coasters where you sit inside a cart. I’ve also been through roller-coasters where your feet dangle in the air as you go through the loops and dips. This one is different because you are positioned like someone flying through the rails.
The other roller coasters were tiny. They are meant for kids but adults like us still get a kick out of the experience – especially when one sees the view from the mountains.
Genting Highlands also features a casino – which is operated by Resort World. After all the rides outside – we had a great time playing the slot machines.
I recommend this activity to anyone visiting KL. It may not be your famous tourist site like Disneyland or Universal – but the fact that it’s on top of a mountain makes this trip worthwhile.
