Resorts and casinos attract crowds to visit the Genting Highlands, but crispy air and acres of pristine rainforest are its inherited peculiarities.

Genting Highlands

Chinese businessman Lim Goh Tong established Genting Highlands on the peak of Mount Ulu Kali in 1965. The primary tourist attraction became Resorts World Genting, a hill resort with casinos and theme parks.


As gambling is illegal in Malaysia in other parts of the country, this city has become a hotspot for casino lovers.
