Genting highlands is a popular weekend getaway for the Malaysian people. The temperature is much lower then in KL and only 1 hour drive. You can reach the highlands with a cable car. This was for us the best part of the trip.
When we arrived at the top, we were a bit disappointed. There was a lot of mist and it was raining, so we couldn’t enjoy the nice view. The only thing to do with our kids was stroll around the mall and have lunch.
