First World Hotel
Genting Highlands Resort (03 2718 1118/ www.genting.com.my). The biggest of its kind in Malaysia and in fact one of the largest hotels in the entire world (preceded only by Vegas) it houses 500,000 sq ft of shops, restaurants, entertainment and its own indoor theme park. The rooms are a tad on the small side but you probably won’t spend a lot of time in them: Get out and enjoy the cooler weather, the theme park and the casinos (sans kids of course) instead. The hotel itself is quite impersonal with automated check-ins and a real lack of character – we include it for its theme park and other attractions.
