Getting to Resort World Genting

Genting Highland is about 51km from Kuala Lumpur and getting there is not much of a problem with the wide range of public transport available.

The Genting Management provides Genting Express Bus services at several strategic locations at Puduraya, 1 Utama, KL Sentral, Putra LRT Station and Kajang at hourly intervals.

I took the bus from KL Sentral and it costs RM 9.30 one way which include the cable car ride. The fare definitely had increased as it used to cost RM 6.30 about 6 years ago in my last trip there. The ticket can be purchased at level 2 of KL Sentral Station, next to the new Air Asia sales counter.

The bus ride is fairy comfortable and depart on schedule. The bus will stops at Genting Skyway Lower Station. For those who plan to go as far as Genting Skyway station, the bus fare is RM 4.30.

The journey from KL Sentral to Genting Skyway Station is about 1 hour. At peak season, there will be a long queue at the cable car station. For those who did not purchase the cable car ticket earlier, it can be bought here at RM 5.

For those who are in hurry to get to the peak and do not want to wait too long for the cable car, taxis are readily available and the fare is about RM 10. During peak season, the taxi drivers will usually jack up the price to RM 15.

To return to the respective stations from Genting Skyway Station, take the elevator to B4 and purchase the ticket there. The departure time is irregular and will usually depart when the bus is filled up.

Genting cable car system is the world fastest and South East Asia longest, standing the distance of 3.4 km

It is a scenic ride to the peak with the lush greenery surrounding and the cool breeze.

The ride took approximately 20 minutes and the iconic Genting Hotel should be visible as the cable car about to reach its final destination.
