~ Past Holiday Experiences 6 - Genting Jun 2005 ~

Date: 22nd June - 24th June 2005
Location: Genting

22nd June: My inlaws, bil's family, uncle's family and us set off on a late night coach from Singapore to Genting and reached our destination at around 7plus in the morning. I still recall Denver snuggling in my arms sleeping throughout the entire ride while I try to catch a wink.

Weather at Genting Highlands is always cooling as if you are in an air-condition room or even colder. Unlike the Hot and Sunny weather we have in Singapore. This time, we'll be staying at First World Hotel and we waited at the Lobby to 'park' our luggages.

Breakfast at MacDonald

11:00am : After checking in to our room, we took the cable car ride down for some horse riding!

2:00pm : Highland Mushroom Farm is nearby and within it, there is a Chinese resturant serving cheap and good dishes. Apparently, they also provide van pick up service (2 way trips) to and from your hotel in Genting for free! It takes about 5-10mins to reach and there is a number to call that you can call to arrange the time and they will pick you up. I still recall the van plate number is 9100. ^_^ This really gives the tourists another dining and touring opportunity apart from the resorts, casinos and themepark.

Evening: Heading back to the resort and touring around the shops. As if Genting is not cold enough, we went to the Snow World to experience some flakes of "Snow". It's very cold inside and we have to put on the coats, shoes and gloves before entering.

23rd March: Breakfast at MacDonalds again! :p Kids love them and it's the easiest to fill our tummy before going to play with the rides in the Indoor Themepark.

Many many rides for us to hop on. The only challenging part is queuing for our turn.

Lunch @ a resturant

4:oopm : Quick dip in the Indoor swimming pool! (Hands are full with looking after Denver and hence did not take photos inside the pool area.)

24th March: Waking up to a COLD morning. Our final day here!

10:00am : Visiting Chin Swee Caves Temple (清水岩庙) before taking the coach back to Singapore. It is a Taoist temple located about 10 minutes drive from the mountain. You can see a very senic view of Genting Highlands and there is statues of the Buddha and Kuan-yin. Along the sides is a row of handiwork crafted with ancient chinese traditions.
