How do you intend to go to Genting? Taxi, car rental or other options? In my point of view, it is pretty safe. It may be a bit windy at certain stretches but the roads are generally good.

The road to Genting is very safe but drving at night to genting, the visibility could be bad due to fog and mist at this mountain resort.

KLIA driver are not very familiar with road condition over at Genting

Less that 2 hours to see Bukit Tinggi

There are few resorts(1)high end and (2)budget and very

well taken care.

1) Safe but visibility not good. If grab a cab, take note on night charges.

2) Genting from the below is half hour drive to B.Tinggi. They are on the same stretch of highway. If u r from KL you will see exit to Genting first. After about half hour drive you will see exit to Bukit Tinggi.

3) a. Genting A lot of choices-Awana Genting/One World/etc etc and even apartments.

b. Bukit Tinggi-Colmar Tropicale/Bukit Tinggi Resort

I've been to both and my children enjoy Genting but I enjoy Bukit Tinggi.

I should think...Genting Highlands and Bukit Tinggi should work together to form an alliance in terms of transportation to ferry visitors every hour to both resorts.

Genting nowadays attract visitors (non casino visitors). The attraction of Genting is focused so much into shopping, indoor dining, indoor games and themepark, and almost everything indoor except the flagship outdoor themepark which is still operating and the only that allows visitors a cooling environment.

Genting lacks outdoor parks, there isn't any outdoor views over the lush forest, not even a tree top walk which I think Genting should build. Bukit Tinggi has something which Genting lacks...a Japanese garden worth visiting and exploring bcos it is located in a garden...I would term it Secret Garden. It has rabbit farm, Genting has mushroom farms, animal sanctuary. Bukit Tinggi is famed for its French resort theme called Colmar, which gives visitors a sense of European stay.

If I am to bring my children to Genting, they will be happy to go for rides at the theme parks but for adults, it is too limited for sightseeing. Bukit Tinggi is the alternative.
