Genting Highlands (Malay: Tanah Tinggi Genting), otherwise known as Resorts World Genting, is a hill resort in Malaysia developed by Genting Group.The hill resort is at an average elevation of 1,740 metres (5,710 ft) within the Titiwangsa Mountains on the border between the states of Pahang and Selangor of Malaysia. Resorts World Genting is operated by Genting Malaysia Berhad (formerly known as Resorts World Bhd), which also operates Awana chain of resorts & hotels. It is accessible by car from Kuala Lumpur in one hour, or also accessible by a cable car called Genting Skyway (3.38 kilometres (2.10 mi)) which at its opening was the world’s fastest and South East Asia’s longest gondola lift.

There are numerous ways to reach the Genting and the most cheapest mode is bus from kl to genting. Compared to Cameron Highlands and Fraser’s Hill, Genting Highlands is much easier to access from highly urbanised areas (i.e. Kuala Lumpur or even Kuantan), and is the only hill resort that is accessible by a modern tolled expressway, the East Coast Expressway (LPT). As with most of western Pahang, Genting Highlands is not served by any rail line, given its mountainous terrain; the closest three stations arguably are  KJ1  Gombak on the Kelana Jaya Line, Mentakab on the KTM Intercity Eastern Sector and  KA12  Batang Kali on the KTM Komuter. Nevertheless, Resorts World Genting provides hourly shuttle buses from the Gombak LRT station to Genting Highlands.

The Genting Outdoor Theme Park has been closed since 1 September 2013 to make way for the world’s first 20th Century Fox World, due to be completed by 2016.Other rides and attractions except for some located in First World Indoor Theme Park, SnowWorld, Sky Venture, Genting Bowl, Vision City and Funtasy World Video Game Parks are opened as usual.Currently, some of the rides in the First World Indoor Theme Park have been closed until further notice to facilitate the construction of the 20th Century Fox World.
