Bus from Kuala Lumpur to Genting Highlands
Let’s face it. Although Kuala Lumpur is absolutely gorgeous and a fantastic metropolis to be living in, the hustle and bustle of the city combined with stifling heat is enough to knock anyone off their feet. On those days when the heat can be too much to bear and all you want to do is take a break, a quick rejuvenating trip to the cool climate of Genting Highlands could be just what the doctor ordered. A popular vacation destination in Malaysia, Genting Highlands is similar to Cameron Highlands in the sense that both are considered ideal destinations thanks to their naturally cool weather. The main difference? Genting Highlands is much closer to Kuala Lumpur. Whether you’re going for a day trip or spending a full weekend at the highlands, the easiest and cheapest way to do so would be to take a bus from Kuala Lumpur to Genting Highlands.
Thanks to the sheer popularity of Malaysia’s “City of Entertainment”, there are dozens of options to travel by bus from Kuala Lumpur to Genting Highlands. Trips leave at various hours throughout the day run and are run by three bus operators: Aerobus, BK Travel and Five Stars Travel. Aerobus alone has twelve trips that leave daily with the first trip departing at 7:00am and the last trip departing at 7:00pm. These 44-seater buses pick passengers up at the Jalan Pekeliling terminal in Kuala Lumpur, while the drop off point is at the Awana Bus Terminal of Genting Highlands. The best part? A one-way bus ticket only costs SGD3.59.
BK Travel averages 14 trips per day for bus from Kuala Lumpur to Genting Highlands. Like Aerobus, BK Travel’s trips leave all throughout the day. The first trip usually leaves at 10:00am, while the last trip leaves at 9:00pm. In between these hours, other buses leave in 30-minute to 1 hour intervals. Pick up points for BK Travel busses are at KL Sentral while drop off points are at the Lower Genting Skyway Station. Fares for these trips are typically SGD1.54. Those who would like to bundle their bus tickets with a cable car ticket at the Skyway Station can do so for just SGD4.41.
Last, but certainly not least, is the Five Stars Travel bus liner, which operates 3 trips of bus from Kuala Lumpur to Genting Highlands every day. Those traveling to Genting Highlands via Five Stars Travel will be picked up at Selangor’s 1 Utama Shopping Centre Bus Terminal and dropped off at the Lower Genting Skyway Station. Unlike BK Travel, none of these tickets can be bundled with cable car tickets, so for those who want to enjoy the cable cars, admission will need to be purchased separately. The bus ride from Kuala Lumpur to Genting Highlands is about 1 hour and 10 minutes long and multiple trips back also depart from Genting Highlands on an hourly basis.
Genting Highlands is located at the peak of the Titiwangsa Mountains and is home to attractions that promise endless fun and excitement for visitors of all ages. Some of the main highlights include the First World Hotel, which holds the record for the largest hotel in the world by Guinness World Records.
