BEING ABOVE THE CLOUDS AT BEST WESTERN PREMIER ION DELEMEN, GENTING HIGHLANDS

ABOVE THE CLOUDS WITH
BEST WESTERN PREMIER ION DELEMEN, GENTING HIGHLANDS

Some would do a checklist before travelling. Some would just opt and just go for one. But either way, it is always the same questions that will arise, how to go, when to go, what to do when you are there, not forgetting accommodations especially when you have a big family does it accommodate your numbers, If you are a couple, is there privacy, If you just want to relax, is the environment relaxing and calm. 

A few years back, during a trip down to Genting Highland, remembered looking out of the window in the hotel room that was overlooking greenery view of a mountain side, noticed faraway a small pool of blue water and was saying out loud there is a lake out there and was hoping that the lake would be made into good use as there was a small scale construction happening at the side of Genting Highlands as we travel down.

Little to be known, it was going to be an entrance and exit to a 5-Star, Serviced Apartment Hotel, BEST WESTERN PREMIER ION DELEMEN, GENTING HIGHLANDS. We had the opportunity to actually experience first hand what these beautiful establishment had to offer to the world of travellers regardless whether for business, or just vacationing. 

GETTING TO GENTING HIGHLANDS
Travelling to Genting Highlands, takes about 1 hour of travelling time. You may opt to travel by many mode of transportation all the way to Genting Highlands. 

We decided our journey was going to be on Genting Express Bus Service which has several departure points from Kuala Lumpur. Previously Genting Express Bus would provide one time ticket price with Genting Cable Car ride. But currently they only provide express bus service all the way up to Awana Bus Terminal.  For more information please check here for details on (How to Get to Genting Highlands).
