  1. Hi, As I have previously parked at First World Hotel multi-storey carpark, I find it's rather challenging due to the narrow ramp going up/down between levels. I heard that there's another carpark @ Maxim which is bigger and easier to park. However, it seems to be reserve for VIP and gold members. Just to check with you guys, anybody ever parked at Maxim hotel before? Do you really need to be VIP or gold member? Thanks
  2. Huge Genting Highlands Landslide Blocks Major Road, Affected Route Temporarily Closed source: https://mustsharenews.com/genting-highlands-landslide/ Major Road In Genting Highlands Blocked After Huge Landslide Genting Highlands is a popular tourist destination for many Singaporean families — its fun theme parks and cool weather is a treat for everyone. However, it seems like those planning to head up there soon for a holiday might have to make some changes to their plans. A major landslide has hit Genting Highlands on Tuesday (5 Nov), cutting off part of a major road. This blocked off the route to a nearby hotel and apartment building nearby, reports New Straits Times. “Hundreds of holiday-goers” were left helpless due to the landslide, according to NST. Fortunately, nobody was injured. Rained for 3 hours prior to the Genting Highlands landslide Videos have surfaced online showing streams of mud and rocks flowing down the mountain. It had been raining heavily for about 3 hours prior to the landslide. In the video, a man shouts for the bus to close its doors as it reverses away from the landslide. Both lanes of Jalan Genting-Amber Court were blocked off. While the First World Hotel is in plain sight of the drivers, they are unable to access it due to the landslide. Clean-up operations are ongoing Firefighters were alerted to the landslide at 5.20pm, reports Harian Metro. The station deployed 10 personnel to the affected area. They are now working to clear the mud and debris from the road. Contractors working in the area are also helping the personnel. Harian Metro added that the main road leading to Genting Highlands, however, is unaffected. The situation is under control When contacted by Berita Harian, the district police chief said that the situation is under control. However, the roads are still closed for cleanup works. We’ve reached out to the High Commission of Singapore in Kuala Lumpur for comments and advice for Singaporeans heading to Genting in the coming days. In the meantime, Singaporeans heading to Genting ought to check traffic conditions before heading over. If the weather is bad, it might be better to delay the drive up until the skies clear. We wish everyone a safe trip during the holiday season.

  4. So I did a 4D3N road trip to Cameron Highlands & Genting Highlands last weekend. Having been to Cameron three times (Rode up twice, drove up once) and Genting (Rode up once, coached up numerous times when I was much younger), this was my first time renting a car in Malaysia to drive up. To those who are interested in renting a car in Malaysia to self-drive up north, here's my personal experience with Wahdah. I will also include some places that I visited in Cameron and maybe Genting. Rented from https://www.wahdah.my/ due to reasonable rates and ease of convenience. Wahdah offers pick up services as near as Caltex JB Sentral which is right beside City Square Mall in JB for a small fee. 1. Easy to understand and navigate website 2. Pretty wide range of cars from the Malaysian brands, to the more common Japanese and Korean cars. Good mixture! Such as the small Perodua Axia, Myvi, Bezza, Proton Saga to the usual Honda Jazz, City, Kia Forte, Toyota Vios, Sienta, Camry, and even the super big Hyundai Starex etc. Prices indicated on this page shows the rate for the entire duration of your booking, not inclusive of other options such as additional driver, pick up and return fee, and also refundable deposit, just to name a few. You can select for prices to be shown in SGD, RM or USD. The next page will allow you to select extra options and all charges are indicated clearly. 3. Easy submission of documents - passport photo, driving license onto website. Just snap photos on your phone and upload it. 4. Confirmation details (in pdf file) sent to my email right after I confirmed my booking. 5. Live chat. Any questions, just use their live chat feature. I had to add an additional driver one month after I made the booking and it was a breeze. Confirmation email was sent to me right after I submitted my payment details. 6. Check your booking by just logging into your account. 7. Contact person details for your booking is also indicated on your booking slip, just in case. I whatsapp-ed the person just a day before my trip just to be sure. Paid RM 704.90 (SGD 235) for my trip from Friday to Monday, inclusive of collection, return fee and additional driver. You can choose collection and return time. Mine was collect 7am at JB Sentral and 11pm return at same location. There is also a refundable deposit of RM 300 which will be refunded to you at least 15 days after returned of car. Renting a car in Malaysia is a good alternative for those who don't wanna risk driving your own car up north for various reasons. Renting a car in Malaysia is also cheaper than renting a car from Singapore to enter Malaysia for those who do not have a car. For my trip, my friend and I rode our cheap kup (motorcycle) into JB and parked in a safe location there. This way we didn't have to take a bus across the causeway etc.
  5. A budget vacation for the family These rooms in the Theme Park Hotel suits most family very well. Especially those productive parents with 3-4 kids. https://youtu.be/TdEUKxEZDwA Classic high tea and walkabout on the first day of arrival. You need to walk a lot after numbing your butt in the long bus trip. https://youtu.be/l4gazQySWbI
  6. My family & I are planning to drive up to Genting Highlands for the holidays. As we need extra luggagespace, I have installed roof bars & will eventually put roof box/cargo. Anyone have tried to drive to Genting Highlands with roof box? How was the experience, is it generally safe? Along the way (stops on the high-way) as well as on parking at Genting Highlands? Any height clearance I should be aware of? Appreciate your inputs & sharing your experience.

    Road near Genting Highland caves in

    KUANTAN: Part of the main road leading to an educational institution near Genting Highlands collapsed early on Friday morning (Apr 6). A 30-metre-deep sunken surface was discovered by a security guard at Aminuddin Baki Institute at around 1.30am. “Electricity in the area has been temporarily disconnected because power cables in the affected area were affected by the collapse,” said Bentong Malaysian Civil Defence Force (APM) officer Lieutenant Mohd Zulkhairi Adek, He said no one was injured, adding that the road caved in during normal weather. The Pahang Fire and Rescue Department is investigating if there were burst underground pipes in the area. Meanwhile, the department's deputy director Mohd Sani Harul said the road along the affected stretch has been closed to traffic until further notice.

  21. I alway bring my laptop/work while in Genting, and thought might be useful info for others. Internet facilities in Genting : 1. cyber cafes at First World Plaza, Genting Hotel "shopping mall" - use their gaming PC for webmail/hotmail. RM10/hr [this was about 2yrs ago, not sure about current price]. I used this service twice and gave up due to very slow speed, no privacy, noisy gaming environment. 2. free wifi at KFC and McDonalds at Genting Hotel "shopping mall". 3. free wifi at Starbuck Coffee at First World Plaza, Resort Hotel Lobby. [not sure about Highlands Hotel Lobby]. 4. free wired broadband at Highlands Hotel rooms [only at Level 15]. 5. broadband modem rental at First Hotel Hotel. RM180 deposit, RM30/day, subject to availability. 6. broadband modem @RM169 and prepaid internet card @RM25 [include 5 days internet] from Digi shops at First World Plaza, Genting Hotel "shopping mall". Additional days usage top-up @RM2/days. 7. buy only the prepaid internet card @RM25 [see #6 above]. Use your own broadband modem or mobile phone [some can function as modem. I am using Samsung SGH-Z560.]. Average speed, but offset by the convenience of working in the privacy and comfort of own hotel room. * #6 & 7 should be able to use elsewhere in MY. * my sincere apologies in case of inaccurate info. Please verify on your own arrangement. Cheers !!

  23. Drove from Genting Highland to Singapore for last Monday. Was quite slow and careful when driving down the slope as it was first time. At highway, drove around 110 to 120 kmh, max 130kmh as bearing in mind my whole family in car. Take a short break at ayer keroh. From Genting carpark to 2nd link custom took me about 5 hours. How about you guys?
  24. Was heading to Genting this coming sunday. Someone informed me that recently there is a murder case happened in FW hotel. It invloved a couple of PRC who was being murdered there....anyone heard about this?
