55 towards Gumut and Batang Kali an estimated 60miles to the Genting Hill resort (we call it "The hill of Horror"), not knowing what to expect, but with the plan to stay there a night. As usual the road was good and once going up even had 3 lanes. The first thing we saw was a pagoda in a Chinese style and right on top of the hill massive hotels in low clouds. It turned out the Pagoda was part of a Chinese temple (and Hotel) built by a Chinese industrialist who
founded the Genting Highland Resort, thanking the gods for his good fortune. It was impressive in it`s own way and we thought it was worth seeing. After a stroll around we headed for the top to find a place to stay (what a nightmare) All you see when you get there are massive Hotels surrounding a theme park with all different attractions, all the parking leads to Hotel lobbies and the only parking outside we found was at the staff car park. Off to the 1st world Hotel to ask for a room (never seen anything like it) Inside the building was a roller coaster, all different restaurants, food stalls and shops, very interesting to see for a short while. At the reception of the Hotel you had to take a numbered ticket as there were hundreds of people waiting, I am not joking. Also, prices for hotels and entrance for the park were not cheap. We decided this was not for us, so grabbed a quick snack of deep fried Durian (stinky) fruit, went back to the car and drove off. This place was like a cheap copy of Disney world and had nothing to do with Malaysia. All we mentioned here is our own opinion and some others might like this kind of thing, especially families.
