Along the way, we encountered more than ten cars that were stationary at the side of the road. At first, you don’t think about anything particularly, but the higher we got, the more cars we saw standing still. Overheated engines that can’t handle the ride anymore or a car that is on fire. We saw it all and according to our chauffeur (who wasn’t as surprised as we were), it was the fault of those drivers. They just can’t drive. Everybody rides an automatic car here!
Once arrived at the top you will see several huge resorts, three amusement parks, a cinema, a bowling alley and a shopping mall. The Genting Highlands is not only popular with people who like to gamble, but also with families. So it’s not a good idea to visit this chaos on a public holiday. We’ve made that mistake before. We were there on a Saturday, probably a lot busier than when you go on weekdays.
Crossing the First World Hotel will bring you to the Sky Casino. Along the way, you will come across all kinds of restaurants. We ate at The Laughing Fish which opened just a few weeks ago. In this English restaurant, you can enjoy fish and chips and a good cocktail! After that, it was time for the casino where we stayed for a few hours. It is so huge and there are so many people walking around that you don’t know where to look. Because you can already play roulette at Holland Casino, it was time for something new. We played the game Sic Bo, where you bet money on a particular outcome of three dices. We had a great time here. Let those ringgits roll!
