    by machomikemd Written Jun 12, 2014

    private van or AUV service is cheaper as prices here are cheap since gasoline prices are subsidized in Malaysia, where a liter of premium unleaded gasoline is ony RM 2.15!

    There are many Tour Companies around Kuala Lumpur and Genting offering this service that goes vice versa to both areas.

    there are two kinds of private van tours, the first one is via a tour company private van tour of which the entrance fees of the attractions and or lunch is included (if you booked a whole day tour, which is different from the half day tour and full day tour as half day tours lasts 4 to 5 hours while the full day tour lasts 8 to 10 hours) and the cost is about 250 to 300 RM per person, depending on the number of locations visited like for example: chin swee caves in genting then half day kuala lumpur or whole day kuala lumpur tour.

    Or you can hire the private van with the driver cum tour guide in one and the entrances to all attaction you would go wii be paid by your own pocket. a whole day tour without paid entrances to attractions is about 180 to 200 RM per person.

    Resorts World Free Shuttle Bus

    the resorts world shuttle bus is a complementary shuttle bus that goes between Highlands Hotel/Genting Hotel Complex to the First World Hotel and the route will take 10 minutes through winding roads. Schedule of pick-up and drop off between the two hotels are every 15 minutes (but the average waiting time can be a drag since there are long lines so that getting a taxi will be a more realistic option if you have lack of time) and is available 24/7 the whole year. This is to induce the holidaymakers to shuttle back and forth between these two Resorts World Complexes to make them more susceptible to spend more on shoppig or eating and even go to the different casinos. the waiting area is at the front of First World Hotel lobby and at the Front Lobby of the Highlands hotel. They also offer free drop off to Genting Skyway to Awana Genting Hotel and to the Gohtong Jaya Bus Stand and to the Outdoor Theme Park.

    Although Genting Higlands has a very small area, you will see a lot of taxis milling around. Why? since the complementary shuttle service in between hotels can be too congensted and waiting times too long that they will be a more attractive option. Some are unscupulous and they will not use the the taxi meter and intead charge you RM 10 to ride back to First World Hotel from the Highlands Hotel and vice versa but the real average will be close to just RM 5.The flag-off fare for taxis is RM 3.00 and passengers will be charged 10 cents for every 115 meters thereafter. Other additional charges include actual road toll charges, RM 2.00 for telephone bookings, and a 50% surcharge is levied between midnight and 6.00 AM. Tip: An additional RM 1.00 is charged on third adult passenger (maximim of 4 persons) and/or baggage stored in boot. Taxi driver earn when they move around to pick passenger but not waiting for passenger. They are willing to wait in order to charge higher.

    Counter at Station No.1

    The sanest way to travel between KL and the Genting Highlands is by bus which leave from KL's Puduraya station every half hour.

    A one way fare is RM8.50 and this includes a ride on the Skyway cable car. The bus stops at Station No.1 which is 700m below the hilltop resorts.

    Although I had to take a taxi to the Genting Highlands because I wasn't able to book a bus within a reasonable time, I had no trouble at all in finding a bus going back to KL later that day.

    Taxi stand near Puduraya bus station
    1 more image

    Puduraya bus station was only a short walking distance away from our KL accommodation and from there the plan was to catch a bus to the Genting Highlands.

    I arrived there at 10am and when I asked for bus tickets I was advised that the next available bus was at 3pm. The day was Sunday and it seemed that half of KL were going there too.

    Plan B was to find a taxi which was easy as there were plenty of those near the bus station. I quickly found a scout for a driver and he quoted me RM100. I offered RM60 and he said he would check with the driver.

    He came back soon and suggested RM80 and again I offered RM60 and he told me to wait there. There was a diminutive Indian man standing nearby who also seemed to be looking for a ride. He told me that the scout didn't have very good English soI walked off to find another taxi.

    No sooner had I set off to find one when the scout scurried alongside and said RM60 OK? I said yes and followed him to the car. As soon as I got there the diminutive Indian mand was sitting in the front and I piled into the back with my two kids.

    So the taxi driver got his RM80 by way of an extra passenger and I got my RM60. I had to admire the way that the driver got what he wanted and that I did too.

    So off we went weaving in and out of KL traffic on our way to Genting. As soon as we hit the highway I began to doubt the wisdom of my choice of driver. He seemed to think that he was the Malaysian Michael Schumaker as he sped along the way treating 50km/h speed signs as a suggestion only for negotiating hairpin bend.

    By making very liberal use of all three lanes of highway he proved that it is possible to take these bends at 100km/h! The diminutive Indian man seemed not to notice as he was taking a nap during our journey.

    It was with great relief that I handed the driver the RM60 fare as he dropped us off at the entrance of one of the hotels at the top of the hill. The driver quickly took off and sped down the hill again no doubt looking for another fare.

    Taxis - Got Wheels Can Travel

    by Aidy_p Updated May 25, 2008

    How do you get the best deal for a taxi ride up to Genting? Well, it'll do you a whole world of good if you know someone in KL who can book the taxi for you. It cost us RM80 to go up to the highlands. But what about tourists? I understand that you'll have to pay about RM120-150. But you might like to negotiate with the company - RM100. The taxi will bring you all the way to your hotel's doorsteps.

    But if you're in no hurry (The taxi will cut down your travelling time by more than 1/2 hour), then I'd suggest that you take the express bus followed by the scenic skytrain.

    This bus is from Terminal PUTRA LRT Gombak to Genting Skyway Cable Car Station. I purchased Genting Golden Package (RM26-Weekday). This ticket is only valid for the day however it is really worth it as the package entitled for:
    - Bus ride to and fro
    - Skyway ride to and fro
    - An option between Genting Outdoor Theme Park Ride Pass or buffer lunch at Resort Cafe.

    a tip

    by shoestringbudget Written Jun 14, 2007

    Here's my reply to Question: Most economical way and easy access transportation from Bukit Bintang to Genting by lina7963.

    Hi there,
    the cheapest way I know is... taking a bus from Puduraya bus station...

    u'll probably take a cab to it... if u'r staying in Bukit Bintang area it shldn't cost more than rm10 per cab since it's a 15mins walk away by foot... n probably less than 10mins drive away...

    fr there purchase ur Genting shuttle bus tickets fr the booth no. 70 (apparently... I'll know myself when i go there soon too:))... it costs RM8.50 (one way inclusive of cable car ride; to skyway station at Gohtong Jaya (abt 45mins apparently) where u'll take a cable car ride up to Genting Highlands (abt. 11mins apparently))...

    Note: I've heard abt pickpockets and snatch thieves at Puduraya bus station (thkfully my past couple of visits there for coach rides were fine) thus just b extra cautious n carefull alright... oso when there enter the building and buy ur tics fr the counters within (if u can't locate it just ask any counter where is the GENTING EXPRESS BUS service...shld b fine). Lastly, there are quite a no. of touts at the entrances of the buildings... how safe/efficient they r i don't know... i usually just walk pass them n enter the building...

    regards,

    Cut short in Cable car que

    by masum11 Written Apr 14, 2007

    Availing Bus/Cable car is always a cheaper alternate to Taxi. It is more interesting too! However, you'll find a l-o-o-o-o-ng queue for cable car which compels tourists to take taxies. You'll be glad to know that you can get into a cable car cutting short the queue!! How?

    Buy a return ticket right after you get down from bus on your way to Genting, before you ride on the cable car. When you come back, just show the ticket to the guards beside the queue, the'll put you in front of the line so that you don't miss the bus!!

    This is an inexpensive, fast and convenient way of getting to Genting. Besides that, the ride offers you an unparalled paranomic view of the rainforest as it makes its way up or down. Because of the high altitude, the spiraling ride by bus instead can be rather uncomfortable to people who are susceptible to motion sickness.

    Cable cars going up Genting Higlands, Malaysia
    2 more images

    The final part of the journey up Genting Highlands involve taking the cable-car. Coaches ferrying tourists used to be able to go up the mountain but this was stopped years ago because of accidents on the steep and winding road going up the mountain. The cable car journey is scenic (see photos at this page travelogue section) and takes about 15 minutes one way. The cost of the cable car is usually included in the price you pay for the entire package (i.e. coach, hotel and cable car). There are very long queues during weekends and public holidays so do take note.

    Coach going to Genting Highlands, Malaysia
    2 more images

    If you are at Singapore and want to spend a few days at Genting Highlands, the best way is to approach the travel agencies in Singapore as there are many tour packages to Genting Highlands (as this is one of the favourite place which Singaporeans visit). Usually the tour package will include 2-3 nights stay at a hotel at Genting Highlands, plus the air-conditioned coach and cable car ride up the mountain. The coaches are comfortable and there are now some coaches with massage chairs, games, entertainment etc. The journey (one way) takes about 6 hours depending on traffic jams especially at the Singapore-Malaysia causeway. The tour package will cost about Singapore $200.
