Anybody knows if there is such a thing as day use room at GH.
Seen some sign before about 3 hours use in FWH.
There are short stay rooms in First World Hotel but you have to check for availability at specific counter. Think the charges are pretty ex for short stay. Might as well book for the one night.

Dependent on your membership status; more likely you will get the best rate through RWG website if you’re their casino patron

Where to book the hotel rooms? Through genting rws website or other website? Please assist I dun have experience booking genting hotel.
For coach tickets, you can find the various pickup and drop-off points and compare prices here. https://www.busonlineticket.com/.

For hotel, First World Hotel is the cheapest. Many room types. Standard room does not come with kettle so you have to go to the corridor to collect water. Other room types have kettle to boil water.

I assume you are not Genting member, compare the price at eg agoda and Genting official website https://book.rwgenting.com/member2/H...otelList.aspx? Use the room calendar feature for easy checking of the daily price for the selected whole month.

You can also compare if cheaper to buy room and coach package from travel agent. And if you decide that you want to take Transtar coach, check to see if it is worth paying transtar membership to get discount.

My temporary plan to go KL for 1 day, then go up Genting. Going during 15th June to 17th June.

Any1 with recommendations on places to go? KL staying in either Parkroyal/Park Royal Serviced Suites or Dorsett (Studio Queen). Budget is around $120~~ range, looking for a nice bathtub and view to relax.
Genting, wanted to stay in Theme Park Hotel or Resort Hotel, but goddamn no more normal 2pax room. All left with quadruple room that costs $230~~. No choice but to stay First World Hotel...

15th June (Saturday) - KL Tour
7am-12pm: Bus from SG to KL, drop off at around Berjaya Times Square (WTS Travel, $40SGD)
12pm onwards: Drop off luggage/check in.
Afternoon to evening probably visiting Pavilion and Petaling Street. Not too sure where or what's nice to eat for lunch.
Night: Probably some Rooftop Bars for some cocktails? Can't decide on which 1, need some recommendations.

16th June (Sunday) - Genting Tour
8am - 9.45am - Wakeup and Tour around for breakfast. Any recommendations for breakfast around my hotel areas?
9.45am-10.30am - Checkout and Grab to Batu Cave for RM30? (Might skip, depending on weight of my backpack)
10.30am-11.30am - Walk around Batu Cave see see look look
11.30am-12.30am - Grab to Genting Skyway. RM60?? How much is the toll?
12.30-1.15pm - Cable Car up. 8 ringgit?
Spend remaining day in Genting, no idea what to do lol or what's nice to eat there.

17th June (Monday)
Checkout and take 12.30pm bus from Genting back to SG. (WTS Travel $32)

No KL thread to ask, might as well ask in Genting thread =[

it's funny how time flies for me.
now i never think of driving up although i am very familiar with the place. these days i fly there.
but your keen interest to drive up quite fasinates me although i dont know why. but i too had my first time driving up to genting.

it was a toyota corolla 1.3.

with my then girlfriend now wife we drove up just for a look see. but we managed to take a high ride genting outdoor theme park. unlike our universal studios battlestar it was really exhilarating with the freezing cold wind blowing at your face. they dismantled it umpteen yrs ago. a fox century theme park is supposed to become a reality but it seems not to be leh.

i remember i parked just infront of theme park hotel. we didnt stay there. we came down before it turned dark. and this will be my advice - never drive when it has turned dark. i wouldnt say anything more. of course a gungho guy might think differently.

but having been there many more times after that.
i think you should park where you think you will be staying. firstly, easier for lugging and avoiding too much breathing the cold dry air. think abt partner or children if any.

if you think you will only spend little time in room then first world htl is sufficient and the cheapest. for me now no crockford no stay. enjoying the finest now. time is short.

this short post is something you can understand if u just think a little bit.

looks like you are on free n easy mode except for wts to and fro. skip batu cave not for lack of anything to see there (i passed by there and i heard and saw the steps up to the caves are in colour!) but time in essence. if genting is more your ultimate target, then avoid the unpredictable delay you may have at the caves like jammed with human and cars. lately their tourist promotion have drawn lots of the an neh continent people and i mean lots. bangladesh, india, pakistan where else? you will know when you are at genting. budget flights and depreciating ringgit have brought these people over by the droves!

so minus the cave you shld be up there swiftly and you need not grab so you careless abt the road toll. instead you can grab fr your hotel to pekeliling bus station. plus minus 15mins then hop onto a direct bus to genting awana skyway.
lots of things you can do in kl but i think you are short of time. anyway just grab, they are your time saver. its quite cheap.

enjoy.

I am up in kl every month.
You are travelling during the last weekend of the Raya holidays. Still very busy period. Every thing is very crowd and expensive and maybe sold out already.
I use Aeroline coach. SG to KL is $50, but they use a conversion of 2.4 and it actually cost RM117. But the trick is to sign up on their MY website first to get this lower price.

It stops at Corus Hotel directly opposite KLCC and 1 building away from the LRT station. It cost RM50 per night but maybe RM80 for the holiday period. Check With Agoda for this and FWH booking. Yes use Grab for Batu Caves and and also to cable car or FWH.

I would normally use the LRT to Gombak and then Grab to FWH. Genting has a bus to cable car at 4.30pm if you want this. If you don't gamble there is nothing much to do. I am going up to FWH on the 20 Jun just for look see as I have not been there for more than 1 year.
