  1. I am keen if the trip is on.
    My preference hotel : Resort World.
    Perhaps need more details on the rate and programme when you have finalized for me to decide.
    Single room and no sharing of room, I believe or are there options

  2. Hi inez, thanks for your support.

    Hi Kenneth,
    I have few reservation at Malaysian Ringgit 50 per night at First world Std.
    Some members have offered me less than S$ 100 for Resort Hotel-Delux. I am working on..

    Current Rate is MR 110-130 for First World. Resort Hotel is abt MR 350 to 400.
    (Will only know when booking is reserved)

    I prefer to fly from Singapore @S$34 one way on Budget airline. I recommend to sleep on train home at MR 60 to reach woodlands at abt 8.00 am. For those who can get up early to catch coaches at 6.30/7.00 am =S$ 65-70 – Return fare
    ( It used to be S$50 before five Star gone bust ).

    Prepare about MR 20 (2ways) transport to KL from Genting Highland. The rest Expenses on food depends on individual. A table of 10 for Dining at the !st Class Chinese Restaurant – Suckling Pig, Steam Fish; Mao’s braised Pork,etc..10 – 12 course will be around MR 900 – MR 1200 depending on what we order. i.e. about S$ 42 per head – No way you can get in Singapore top class Restaurant

    Will up date cost once I can get an indicative participants. I normally believe in Economic of scale.

  3. Thanks Tony. Good that we finally come up with something.
    While I enjoy going to the CA$INO (with a controlled budget), many people do not; and the good question they ask is, “I don’t gamble. Go Genting for what?”
    My reasons for the arduous “mountain-climbing” expedition
    (I am not a marketing agent):
    1. CHAT with friends during the long journey in the coach/train
    2. BREATHE the nice cool air at almost 2 km (~6000 ft) above sea level
    3. FEAST on the generous and sumptuous buffet at relatively low price (compared with Sg)
    4. WATCH a concert, performance or stunning show.
    5. BUY some Malaysian products to bring home

    As we cannot highlight the names of the attractions and performing talents here (these will decide the cost), interested members please find out more via email. Let me have your mobile number and we shall add you to our “Travel Group” on a chat app. Discussions will then be among very keen potential participants.
