Parent's visit ~ Genting Highland Trip

Mum and Dad have not been to Genting Highland for ages. We visited Cameron Highland when they were here last year. Since they like cooler place, we decided to visit Genting Highland instead.

Genting Highland is not that far away, and had only taken us 1 hour plus to reach our destination, the Awana Genting Resort. The resort is situated near Gotong Jaya and the Skyway Cable Car station.

Though it's not at the top of hill, Awana offers cool environment with nice surrounding. The two room apartment we took was big. The master bedroom had even furnished with jacuzzi!

Genting Hihgland had changed alot. So many new buildings and new wings of theme park have been erected. To be frank, we're kinda lost in this concrete jungle.

Genting offers two choices, either you go for the casino (which I don't even bother to go in) or the theme part (great excitement for children, youngsters and young adults). But for my parents, these 'entertainment' meant nothing to them. They dislike gambling, and the games in the theme park are just too 'aggressive' for them. With nothing much to do, we decided to have some coffee at Coffee Beans instead. I love their cheese cake!

We spent some time at the garden behing Highland Hotel enjoying the cool sensation of the cloudy breeze. Ahh...... very refreshing.

On our way home, mum blurted, "Nothing much lah in Genting, Cameron Better."
Yah, I agree. At their age, Genting is just a place for young and healthy people. My parents are aging. Both have knee problem. Walking from one place to another at Genting had been a 'huge task' to them. I shall bring them to Fraser's Hill for some good rest next time.

Josh,
dun think Fraser Hill is suitable for ur parents as well - been there, nothing much except for tulips. Nak naik pun kena naik their jeep (we hv to park our car kt bwh). Pastu mcm nak tercabut nyawa naik jeep tu, sampai atas pening & i've vomited up there.

looking for a cooler place..? i think ChCh is the best idea..!
