One of the things we like about Genting Highlands is the cold weather up there. Another thing we love is the landscape and its spectacular view! Take a stroll around the area and enjoy the nature there. The best part about it is the scenery there is photography-worthy!
Highlights: Tropical greeneries | Cold breeze | Spectacular views
When you visit Sky Avenue, you will always see the crowd stop on track just to see the lights and moving balls show. It is a spectacular visual storytelling performance with larger-than-life cinematic visuals and an original music mix. What’s so special about it? You must experience it by yourself to tell! Get ready to be mesmerized by the motions.
Located outside of the Sky Avenue casino, go and watch the show instead if you don’t want to spend money to gamble. However, the show can be quite short. But you can always enjoy window shopping in the mall afterwards.
Highlights: Theatre of Lights & Sound
Showtimes: Every half an hour, 10 am –10 pm
Location: Level 1, SkyAvenue
