Kuala Lumpur Travel Diary 2015: Genting Highlands

Hi Lovelies! Sorry I've been MIA - I got back from KL a week ago, but it's taken this long to prepare a blog post (guess I was still in holiday mode) T.T 

Anyways, this was my first trip back to KL (my mum's hometown) in 12 years *o*

It was really hot and humid, but the food was amazing and the shopping endless, lol. 

There will be more Malaysia related posts to come, but for now please enjoy the pictures I took when I went to Genting Highlands. 

Genting Highlands is about an hour's drive out of KL, up in the mountainside, and it's like a resort/theme park? There is an outdoors theme park which is under construction for another year yet, as well as an indoors theme park.

Beautiful lanterns and fairy lights display in the First World Resort foyer/entrance
Genting Highlands is popular with both young and old~
Hello Mr Superman ^^
All the interesting sights are found when you look up!
Lots of interesting eateries at Genting Highlands...
We went and rode on one of those cart things! There's lots of different styles to choose from - some with flashing lights :P
So many little details to look at - such as those gargoyle statues...
Little Big Ben? It's the entrance for Snowworld, and the casino is right next door. This casino is Malaysia's one and only legal casino *0* 
The Chinese New Year lanterns look so pretty strung up like this
Reminds me of Venice/gondola rides...or an imitation of Vegas' imitation of Venice :P
Sugarcane drink at one of the cafes...so good! 

Gentings seemed a bit dated to me - there aren't many attractions for older people (asides from some shopping), but I guess since the outdoors park is under renovations it's less fun since that's where all the more thrilling rides are? 

We didn't stay long - went into the haunted mansion, rode one of the cable cart things, did a little bit of window shopping (I bought two hand mirrors), and then we were off to have lunch elsewhere, as well as visiting a French style village nearby. But I'll save the pics for the next photodiary post ^^

Thanks for reading!

  1. Welcome back from your holiday Tulip! I don't blame you for still being in holiday mode. I was on holiday 2 months ago and I've only just started blogging x'D


    Genting Highlands looks so cool! I love theme parks! Seeing the decoration for CNY makes me want to go back to Asia and celebrate :'D

  2. I always like your holiday/short trip posts! It's really relaxing to read them between learning for my examinations :D. Are you going to blog about a beauty haul from Malaysia :)?

  3. Hi I didn't go in unfortunately! I would've liked to actually, but my sis is underage so she wouldn't have been able to join >.<
    It was a little cool but not overly so, I only had a very very thin jacket on and I was fine.
    Thanks for reading ^^

  4. Thanks Jing Jing ^^
    Haha, it's the longest I've been away from blogging, it's quite a strange feeling!
    Yeah, the CNY decorations are so pretty and much more abundant in Asia, especially compared to Perth here.

  6. Hahahhaah too bad, you could've won a million dollar. Or lose a million dollar heheheh.. I remembered back then Genting was so cold that they had some kind of an ice blizzard thingy and we couldn't use the cable car to go back down. So we waited for an hour or so and my dad went it to the casino and we waited outside hahahah :-s

    Kisses,

    Adrian FS.

  7. Wow, it looks like a blend of 10 different theme parks! Reminds me a little bit of Tivoli in Copenhagen in this sense.
