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.
Thanks for sharing your wonderful experience.
May I know why you never drive up to genting nowadays?

Crockford not in my league...
too expensive.
My budget around sgd200 per night only

Depends on what coach you take.

I know Transtar leaves at about 11.30pm, so you should reach there ard 5am.

WTS night coach leaves 9.45pm so you can reach there before 4am. My personal record was 2.47am

There's nothing dangerous about reaching there early. If you stay at RH/Maxim/GG, you can go and pre-register. You usually get your room ard noon.

If you stay at FWH, you can opt for early check-in (by paying extra RM5) from 6am onwards. But usually room will only be available ard 8-9am.

KL by a long shot.
Many bus companies go to KL with many trips daily.
Rest in bus company lounge or some some hotel lounge.
If you need to lay down get a day stay in a cheap hotel, not withstanding that KL hotel is cheap anyway.

No easy way to get from SG to GH.
It is O.K for the young strong people to take the overnight bus to GH.
Leave late at night and get there in the dead of the early morning.
No place to rest GH and they don't give you your room till late morning.
Remember if you are tired already if you get on the bus late at night you will be more tired when you get off the bus.

Never understand why people would go through this suffering with the overnight bus. No way to start a holiday.

Maybe they want to save leave. Alternative is pay for 1 more night hotel at Genting so that can check in straight away on arrival. Or travel on Transtar Super-z which is more comfortable and sleep through the journey (not solitaire to avoid changing of bus).

Bro normally for SG - Genting its ard 6hr travel time if you drive..Normally last time i will drive during the night..not that much traffic so u can speed abit approx 140-180km/hr should be okie..

Melaka is like half way mark..you can choose to stay for a nite there but not much activity if you are there during weekday

KL hmm my view no point of staying there as just need to push abit more u will reach Genting already so no point waste the $$
