    Genting Express Bus

    Genting Express Bus is a conveneint and economical way to travel to Genting. The buses leave from various locations in KL to Gohtong Jaya as follows:

    Puduraya - Gohtong Jaya Skyway station
    KL Sentral Station - Gohtong Jaya Skyway station
    Hentian Duta - Gohtong Jaya Skyway station
    Terminal PUTRA LRT Gombak - Gohtong Jaya Skyway station

    From the skyway station, its a mere 11 minutes journey by the Genting Skyway to Genting Highland. However, if the skyway system is closed for maintenance, all buses will go straight to Genting Highland.

    Taxi

    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.

Covering a distance of 3.8km, it is South East Asia longest skyway system and also the world's fastest skyway - the journey between the two points takes about 11 minutes. En route, do enjoy the nice view of the tropical rain forest and mountains.

    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.

    Cable-car up Genting Highlands

    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.

    You can catch a taxi from the Puduraya bus terminal in the Kuala Lumpur city centre to Genting Highlands.

    It may cost you a bomb if you do not bargain. We were quoted RM80. So we decided to wait for the bus to operate instead.
