To start with there’s an entertainment and theatre complex Arena of Stars , an 18 hole golf course at Awana Genting Highlands, an artificial lake where you can go boating and a family theme park that features a monorail, roller-coaster rides and a huge video/virtual reality arcade.
An educational visit to the Ripley’s Believe It or Not is a must for families with kids. Be it unique or common, you will end up discovering a zillion facts about people, places and things around the world on your visit to this interesting place.
Take a trip to Heaven straight out of hell at the Chin Swee Temple that features various Buddhist deities on its carvings. Established in 1994, the temple is famed for its ten chambers of hell where the figures on walls depict some horrifying punishments given to the sinners (compelling visitors to count their good karma to book a place in the heaven).
Pick farm fresh mouth watering strawberries at Genting Highland’s Strawberry Farm . The farm defines the perfect hands on experience in farming as you get to pluck some ripe red strawberries or take walk through the neighboring Mushroom Farm and discover new varieties of these edible fungi capping over one another.
The resort hotels also offer bowling alleys, a disco, a nightclub, squash courts and a horse ranch. There is also, of course, the casino (with a sign over the main door- a warning from the Sultans of Pahang and Selangor forbidding Muslims from gambling). The casino has Western games as well as traditional ones, and is open 24 hours on weekends.
