    Yes I love to gamble, but I'm not the frequent type and I do know my limits. but some do not and are always in the casinos and gamble away huge sums of money and Genting Highlands is a gambler's paradise and the way to the different casinos are prominently marked. you must have control and must have a set limit on your budget if you happen to lose money.

    Unique Suggestions: you have the option not to go inside the casinos, if you don't want to throw good money.

    Fun Alternatives: again, just enjoy the various entertainment, eating and shopping options around Genting and don;t enter the casinos.

  • Have you currencies ready!

    It's not really a "tourist trap." But you have to have your dollars (Sing or US) changed before boarding a bus for Malaysia. We arrived in Genting so early at 7:30am (we took the overnight bus from Singapore) and all the pawnshops and banks were still closed! And we haven't had a decent dinner the night before!

    Unique Suggestions: Ask kiosks if they change Sing dollars to Malaysian Ringgits.

    Bad snowing experience

    The SnowWorld isn't really as fantastic as it seems. The snow technology is too old and the snow is not really made of water. They cannot be crushed together like real snow to make snowballs. Some safety hazards are also present such as the mini slide not being barricaded. I saw a small kid being tripped by another kid sliding down. And I don't really fancy the way they bring the snow slide ride to a stop - they kick the sliding float.

    Its not a colonial legacy.

    Tudor inspired design guard house.

    Comparing with the other hill stations/ resorts in Malaysia, 40 years old Genting Highland is relatively new and not a legacy of the colonial rule in Malaysia. However, upon entering the "Genting zone" you'll be welcomed by Tudor inspired designed guard house. Don't expect to find more of such architectural design in Genting Highlands as they are quite new and modern.

    Unique Suggestions: Enjoy the cool, warm weather there (even cooler then Cameron Highlands)

    Fun Alternatives: Go to Cameron Highlands instead if old colonial charm is what you are looking for.

    Please do not have your meal at Yummy Yummy Food Court. Food there are selling with expensive price tag.

    Once, I have ordered a plate of rice from this food court. They charged me 2x of what I paid in Kuala Lumpur.
