Day 3 of 4
It’s time for us to checkout at Trader’s Hotel and move on to Genting Highlands but before leaving the city center, we had an amazing breakfast at the Club Lounge because of its wide selection plus we had a great view of Petronas and then right after, we make a pit stop to KL’s Chinatown which locals called Petaling St to buy some knick-knacks and souvenirs.
0700 – 0900 Breakfast
0900 – 1100 Chinatown
1100– 1200 Check-out
1200 – 1400 Off to Genting
1400 – 1500 Check-in at First World
1600 ONW Genting Indoor Theme Park
Petaling Street is the Chinatown of Kuala Lumpur and just like any other Chinatown in every country we visited, its streets are the hustling and bustling of the city where day seems to never end. Locals and Tourists frequent this place either to enjoy the famous street foods here or shop good bargains. A shopper’s paradise for all things cheap and affordable. Food to try – its famous roast duck being sold on the street. Things to Buy – We bought some local tea and coffee.
How to Get Here?
By LRT: Take the Kelana Jaya Line and get down at the Pasar Seni LRT Station. At the LRT station, a short walking distance will get you to Petaling Street.
We hit the road soon after checkout and traveled to Genting for one and half hour. We rented a mini-van that will take us to the steep high altitude hill resort. We take a few snaps along the way and reach the resort past 2pm. The driver wanted us to visit other interesting places nearby, but we turn it down politely, because we wanted to maximize our time and enjoy Resort World Genting more.
Genting Highland is an integrated entertainment complex, which operates under Genting Group. The resort houses several hotels, casinos, retail stores, theaters and more than that, an indoor and outdoor theme park that sets to upgrade to 20th Century Fox World in no time.
As soon as we arrive, we checked in at First World Hotel which used to be the largest hotel in the world until the expansion of the Venetian in Las Vegas. The hotel features more than 6000 rooms in total. Making it the Guinness World Record for the Largest Hotel in the world by the number of rooms.
And since we’re hungry, we look for something to eat and decided to order two sets of Nasi Lemak with Chicken Curry, Omelet and Ayam Goreng.
Genting Indoor Theme Park
After dinner, we headed to the Genting Indoor Theme Park, which is also located inside the First World Hotel. It houses multitudes of stores, food kiosk and fun rides perfect for kids and adults. There are also some replicas of celebrated landmark like the Eiffel Tower and even the statue of Liberty.
We decided to skip the indoor park and carry on to Ripley’s Believe it or Not. I’ll be having another post on this quirky museum, which exhibits bizarre facts and trivial stuff that can actually blow your mind.
After Ripleys and the endless exploration of Genting, here I am ordering another set of Ayam Goreng and cold Fanta to quench the thirst.
After Mc Donalds, we headed back to our room which is located in Tower 2 and continue our bonding with another bottle of Baileys over some chips.
