Add a Point to the Map

Genting Highlands, (or simply Genting) is Malaysia's version of Las Vegas and comes with an indoor and outdoor amusement park, a casino, and a number of hotels.

Genting is located on a mountain top in Pahang, Malaysia, and a regular destination for Malaysian and Singaporean gamblers. It also sees a fair amount of families with children. However, Genting is slowly losing its popularity due to the influx of the casionas at Marina Bay Sands and Resorts World in Singapore.
