Unplanned 3D2N Stay In Genting Highlands.

Hello, my dear friends. I am back after a 3 days break from blogging. It was an unplanned getaway in Genting Highlands. It all started with a phone call invitation from a friend. Due to her blunder in the online room booking, she had an extra room which cannot be cancelled. Since I have not been to Genting for a long, long time, I agreed to join her and company. I didn't know what to expect from the 3 days and 2 nights stay there but I just went in faith, trusting everything will be fine and enjoyable and I am glad I went!

On the morning of our departure, I drove to my friend's house and we had breakfast at a nearby shop. After that, all 6 of us gathered at her house to wait for the van to pick us up at about 8.30 am. It was a beautiful day and we had a pleasant journey all the way to the highlands.
Its time for my friend to see to the checking in while the rest of us did some legs stretching.
As for me, its time to awaken my camera after a few hours of slumber. This was taken in the hotel's lobby.
This photo is taken outside the hotel's entrance. I quickly stepped back into the hotel lobby away from the cold wind blowing outside.

Once we checked into the first room, we settled down for a simple yet delightful lunch brought all the way from Ipoh by the sisters. Then we made our way to check into our room at the second hotel. It was about a 15 minutes walk between the 2 hotels but most of the distance is covered by escalators.
This was our humble yet comfortable room at level 26. Everything looks new and clean. After we have freshen up, we started our walking tour of 'Genting Indoor City' - name coined by me.

I just found out that Halloween's day was on Monday, 31st October, the day we arrived at Genting Highlands. This white fencing is for joining Good Fences.

We stopped to watch candy making at a stall.
The candy was stretched and cut into long thin sticks/bars.
Time to collect the cooled candy sticks.
Then the candy sticks were easily broken into small pieces.

  11. I was wondering why no post from you until I saw your photos on Claire's blog. Nice of you to take over the room from her so that she does not need to waste her booking. You are a good friend to her.

  12. Hello Nancy!:) Lovely photos!:) The metal fence is very pretty, and there is so much to see that I hardly know where to start. The candy making was a cool thing to watch, and it looks like Genting Highlands is a fun place for a getaway with friends.

  13. The hotel is really beautiful!! So you both stayed at two different hotels, or different rooms in the same hotel? Ripley's Believe It Or not would have been so much fun!! I love the huge clock, and the roof in your last picture. An awesome trip for sure and great things to see.
