Resort World Genting - WHERE TO EAT AND STAY?


Asking where to stay in Resort world genting is a dumbest question ever! Why do you need to worry about staying in a bus tops while there are 4 HUGE hotels in Genting that you can choose from but of course, it depends on you budget.
Maxims Genting
Theme park hotel
First world hotel
Awana Genting Highlands Golf and Country Resort
If you ask me where to stay, I’d suggest First world hotel. (for now you should have know that I’m the economy type =_=”) It’s also the only hotel that I’ve stayed during my previous visits to Genting.

It has the lowest fare compare to the other hotels but don’t doubt the quality of the rooms. They are pretty comfy and most importantly, they are clean and tidy! Thumbs up to the room service. Other than that, there's huge shopping mall (First World Plaza) located right next to the hotel.

 After settling the accommodations, the next thing to worry about is FOOD! Yes! That’s certainly a big problem!

The problem is not that you can’t find food until you need to eat grass, but instead, there are just too many foods to choose from!
Resort world genting had just launched their “Mountain of food” early this year by our most wanted chef in Malaysia, Datuk Chef Wan! The concept of “mountain of food” is about bringing all the local delicacies around Malaysia to Resort world Genting, not for display but to satisfy the taste buds of the visitors.
Original photo from www.iamthewitch.com
They serves everything from oriental food to continental food. Seriously, you name it, they have it! There are over 100 restaurants serving 200 over dishes and I can assure you that there will be the food that makes you droll.
If you ask me where to eat, I’d suggest the fast food chains. Eventhough the price is slightly more expensive than other branches in town but the food will certainly fill you stomach well enough for the hectic day! (hectic as in playing all day long)
Ok lah! To be honest, these fast food restaurants serves foods which are more economical compare to those seafood restaurants that might cost you a fortune if you’re just blue collar like me. But if you’re planning for an eating spree, then let your gluttony takes over you conscience and start eating all you want! I bet there’re no other places better than Resort world Genting for you to unzip your true-self of a glutton.

Here's some of my suggestions restaurants to try out by category
For the mid-range (photo fetched from google)
For the high-range (photo fetched from google)
By the way, you don’t really have to worry about breakfast as most hotel provide buffet breakfast for their occupants. If you still want to save more, then just stuff yourself with the delicious breakfast then start fasting until the next morning!
Enough tips for accommodation and food from me (the kiam siap traveler :D)

Resort World Genting - What to SEE?

To be honest, all these while when we visit Resort World Genting, we only visited the theme park area or the arcade area. We always thought that Resort World Genting is just a place for entertainment and not much for a sight seeing session.So, now's the question, what to see at Resort World Genting?

After some survey online, I just realized that entertainment is just a fraction of Resort World Genting. There’s this hidden side of the resort which not much people have known of. (Maybe just us that didn’t know about this -_-“) Seriously, this is a very big DISCOVERY for me!


Introducing the Awana Genting Highland Golf and country resort!
This is a hidden treasure right next to the theme park and it consists of a large reserved area filled with untouched rainforest.

Wonder what does this awesome place has to offer? I bet you’ll be surprise when you see the list below!
You can go for the Nature trial which you will be toured around the reserved forest and enjoy the scenery filled with exotic plants and rare animals. There were even trees over 100 years old! (Even older than my great great great grandfather!)
You can also visit the orchid and strawberry farm which is just a stone throw away. If you’re an orchid enthusiast, do look out for the rare grade A orchids which you rarely seen in town.
 
As for the strawberry farm, you’ll have the chance to pick your own strawberry right from the stem of the plant by using scissor and basket provided. Something that you must not miss is the products of fresh strawberry where you can get no where else but right in the farm such as strawberry milkshake, strawberry coffee, strawberry milk tea, strawberry fondue, strawberry pudding, strawberry cakes and many more.

Have you ever heard that you can actually find deer, bears and even elephants in genting?!! I bet not!! Well, you can actually get a very close view with these mammals or even walk side by side with them and feed them some food during the walk. Just head to the deerland and elephant sanctuary to experience all these.

There’s also a forest area for picnics which is located just a short distance from Resort World Genting known as Hutan Lipur Lentang. You can organize a picnic session with you love ones and also enjoy the cool yet clean streams.

This discovery has certainly change my impression of Resort World Genting! Now there're many thingsI've yet to see! I'm getting more excited to explore more about this wonderful resort!

Krabi, Thailand (part 2)

After a good night rest, we started our next morning with some awesome breakfast in Aree Tara Resort! For your information, the breakfast starts from 7.30 am. Anyway, do head out for breakfast as early as possible because most of the full-day / half-day  tour starts as early as 8.00 (depends on the agents, some may pick you up around 9.00am)

Our favourite food >_<
As for the second day of the trip, we've chosen to go for the "4-in-1 Rainforest tour". The 4 in 1 consisted of
  1. Tiger Cave Temple
  2. Elephant trekking
  3. Emerald Pool 
  4. Hot spring
This package cost us 800baht per pax (There's 2 Australian that traveled with us in the same trip paid 900 baht per pax while another family paid 1200 baht per pax!) So make sure you do your survey! 

Our agent picked us up at 8.30am sharp and we headed straight to tiger cave temple. We actually visited the place during the first day through the "free" city tour courtesy by AirAsiaGo. 

Just a typical Buddhist Temple (with a lot of monkeys) 
How can you call this "tiger" cave temple where there ain't no tiger?!!
This was one of our least favourite spot since we're not those devotees, but anyway, it was a good experience when we were surrounded by monkey! There's another temple up above the mountain where the local monks go for meditations. To reach the top, you need to climb up the 1267 steps stairs! (we were not fit for this). The forest surrounding this mountain was actually a forest park, so feel free to take a look at the forest (if you'd like to take up the 1267 steps challenge) 

After the goddamn 1 hour stay in the temple, we headed to our much anticipated activity! The Elephant trekking! 
Say Hi! to Pai, the elephant! He loves bananas!
We were asked to wait for the elephant on a stair-like structure and seated on the elephant's back (with cushion and seat belts!) 
we wondered if the seat-belts were technically usable =_="
The ride was pretty shaky in the beginning but it was fun when we headed into the forest. You'll get the view the natural flora and fauna through a different angle. It was a good experience though (especially for Egg)
Yolk: =_=",    Egg: @_@"
After the gentle yet rough rides, we went to have our lunch (which is included in the package). Not to look down at the food included in the tour, they were pretty delicious!  Even though there were only 4 dishes per table shared by 4 person, but it was more than enough for four of us.  I wanted to high-light the tom yum goong which came with a generous amount of prawns! (not those typical sarawak laksa's little shrimps)
Thai style chicken, fried toufu, mix vege and Tom Yum Goong (our favourite)
Our tummy were all stuffed and we headed to the emerald pool! Why emerald? It's because the pool is GREEN in colour! 
Model wannabe??
We didn't get into the water since the lake was quite deep (the water level is almost as high as my cheek, around 1.6m maybe?) So we ended  up playing "kick water" at the pool side bench. The water was very cooling especially during such a hot afternoon.
After all the sightseeing and "water kicking", we went to our final destination (one of our favourite too), the Hot Spring! From the entrance, we need to walk through a short pathway to reach the natural hot spring. 

That's the end of our day trip! (super exhausted)  We reached hotel around 5.00 pm. As for that night, we took the local taxi to visit the supermarkets in Krabi to buy some local products. We book a taxi for 3 hours to 2 supermarkets in Krabi town and it cost us 900 baht. It was quite reasonable since the trip took almost 40 minutes from Ao Nang beach area to Krabi town. The Taxi driver waited for us at the supermarket for 3 hours before fetching us back.

First up, we went to Tesco Lotus (the locals called it LOTUD! I wonder why =_=") We had our dinner at the food court and ordered the local beef noodles. The soup was thick and it smells like a bowlful of aromatic herbs filled with mee hoon and beef innards + beef balls. The portion was kind of small though.
We bought some local snacks while we went loitering around the supermarket. After 1 hour, we went to another supermarket, BigC before ending out 2nd day in Krabi
Local Seafood snacks in spices
Thai Seaweeds, fish snacks, MOON CAKE!? 
This rounded up our 2nd trip in Krabi. Stay tune for our Krabi Part 3!
