How to go to Genting from Kuala Lumpur

My friends came for a visit last weekend. We wanted to go to Genting from KL, but couldn't find much information about the how about. I thought it would be a good idea to post the itinerary for other tourists (^_^). Hope this can be helpful in planning your trip.

We bought our tickets from the Genting ticket booth at KL Sentral, opens at 8 a.m., underground floor (same floor as Air Asia bus stop). If you need more information, you can contact the ticket booth counter at KL Sentral: tel.03.2279.8989.

(Update: there's a Genting bus stop at the Titiwangsa LRT and monorail station. If you know the price, please comment or insert link. I notice the bus color is yellow with a large "Genting" sign on the side. Are there other color buses?)

Bus & cable car fare:
KL Sentral to Genting Highlands RM8.30 (bus & cable car)

Go Genting Package:
Package price per person, normal season RM42 (weekdays/weekends)

If you take the taxi, it will cost approximately RM80 one way.

We decided to buy the Go Genting package, which includes return bus & cable car, and All Park Theme Park Day Ride. The Theme Park can also be exchanged for a buffet lunch at the Coffee Terrace.

The return time must be pre-booked.

Unfortunately, the cable car was on maintenance. The bus took us all the way up to Genting, the ride was roughly 1 hour.

This is the walkway link from the bus stop to First World Hotel, which is connected to the Theme Park.

Inside the Theme Park in Genting Highlands, we visited Malaysian Beryl's Chocolate. If you compare the price, you better buy your Beryl chocolate in KL!

On your way back to KL, remember to validate your bus ticket at the Go Genting counter booth before you board your bus. The bus number will be written on your ticket at that point.

Packing tips: wear a good walking shoes and remember to bring a sweater!!! It can be quite cool and windy up there.
