Day 7 : visit Genting Highlands Pahang, Malaysia

Genting Highlands is an integrated resort development comprising hotels, casinos, shopping malls and the latest Skyworlds Theme Park in Pahang, perched on the peak of Gunung Ulu Kali at 1,800 meters high. Nestled near the border of Selangor about 35km away from Kuala Lumpur, Genting represents a popular weekend getaway from KL, connected by highways, roads and cable car via Awana Skyway. On a clear day, the peak overlooks lush valleys of rainforest stretching towards KL, a breathtaking view for visitors as they enjoy the cooling weather and serene mountain environment. Also located around Genting in the surrouning valley are many tourist attractions including rustic villages, culinary hotspots, homestay retreats, nature destinations and more.

Awana Skyway

Awana Skyway is a gondola lift service operated by Genting Resort, providing a quick method of travel to the peak that overlooks rainforest valleys stretching all the way to KL on a good day. One of Genting's most popular attractions, the cable car line begins from Awana Skycentral Complex near Gohtong Jaya town that ends at SkyAvenue on the summit, able to ferry 3,000 people every hour at full capacity. The 2.8km ride takes ten minutes with gondolas that accommodate ten passengers; a premium glass-bottomed type seats six visitors with a view of ground below. Visitors can park at Awana Car Park where 4,500 bays are available; rides occur daily from 7am till midnight.


Visiting temples in Malaysia is an incredible way to immerse oneself in a new culture and discover the beauty of religious traditions. Each temple holds its own unique charm, filled with ornate decorations, intricate architecture, and an atmosphere of tranquility and spirituality. As I stepped foot into these sacred spaces, I was enveloped by a sense of reverence and curiosity. The scent of incense filled the air, mingling with the sound of rhythmic chants and the soft echoes of prayers. Intriguing statues depicting deities from various faiths adorned the halls, each representing different beliefs and cultural influences. It was a fascinating journey, delving into the rich tapestry of Malaysia's multicultural heritage. Exploring the temples allowed me to learn about the customs, rituals, and beliefs of the local communities. I witnessed devotees offering prayers, lighting candles, and making offerings, observing their deep devotion and spiritual connection.

During my exploration of Malaysia's cultural treasures, I had the exciting opportunity to take a photo with the magnificent Big Buddha. This iconic statue, representing wisdom and enlightenment, stood tall and majestic. Standing next to it, I couldn't help but feel a sense of awe and reverence. As the camera captured the moment, I knew this photo would serve as a cherished reminder of my encounter with a significant cultural symbol.

After our encounter with the Big Buddha, we were fortunate to meet a friendly Malaysian family and take a photo together. Their warm smiles and welcoming demeanor made us feel like we belonged. As we posed for the photo, we shared stories and laughter, fostering a beautiful cultural exchange that highlighted our shared humanity.

Trying food

One of the highlights of immersing myself in a new culture is trying the local cuisine, and my visit to Malaysia was no exception. From vibrant street food markets to cozy family-run restaurants, I embarked on a culinary adventure that tantalized my taste buds and introduced me to a whole new world of flavors.
