Hi guys, please pardon a noob question because we have not go genting for over 8 years.

Do we need to carry mostly cash on us or the shops/restaurants/etc accept paywave/credit card etc?

Thank you so much :)

What a great question. :s13:

I usually pay cash so I never really notice but I would think it's very unlikely that the shops and restaurants dun accept credit card.

Why you want to pay the horrid exchange rate charge by the bank is another question altogether. :s11:

Most if not all merchants in Genting accepts the usual Master and Visa. Although American Express seem not to be too widely accepted

Agree...unless one has a local Malaysian credit card, the forex rate will not be favourable... nevertheless, almost all outlets there - big or small accept Mastercard & Visa...

Correct pay cash. Money changer buy sell spread is 0.5%
Credit card charge 3%.
Never let the merchant make you pay in SGD. Insist on local currency. Merchant can use a 10% exchange rate.
