Weather Overview for Genting Highlands

Located in Malaysia, Genting Highlands is also known as Resorts World Genting and is a family friendly location, as well as an area where you can legally gamble in Malaysia.  Since the resort is located in the highlands, the temperatures are much cooler.  It offers activities for both adults and children. While visiting the Genting Highlands, you will have a unique experience; be prepared to encounter both run down areas and some pricey shopping. The resort is often compared to the Las Vegas of the United States, which gives you a good idea about the atmosphere, lights and attractions.  There are no streets in Genting Highlands, although the many indoor walkways are filled with signs directing you to the casinos and hotels.  If the day is clear you may be able to see all the way down into the valley, but if Kuala Lumpur is experiencing rain, the visibility will be close to zero.  Since you do not have to go outside to experience any of the attractions, the weather conditions are tolerable.

One of the most visited tourist resorts in Malaysia, Genting Highlands is located on a mountain between Selangor and Pahang.  The resort is about an hour away by car from Kuala Lumpur.
