Visiting Genting Highland twice on weekend in March

We visited Genting Highland twice where we stay at Resort Hotel on the first week and Highland Hotel on the third week. It is a total different experience with an eye opener on Genting hotel. So far I have stay at First World, Theme Park, Resort and Highland Hotel which different price but all the room is small and not spacious.

I would prefer Resort Hotel than Highland Hotel, as the price is cheaper and room is slightly new. Highland hotel need refurbish as things like bathroom door are spoilt. Both hotel room also not spacious but Resort Hotel is slightly cheaper which make the hotel rate above Highland Hotel. The cafe and restaurant recommended would be the Bubbles & Bites, Bakery and Good Friends Restaurant. Ming Ren is rated high in Tripadvisor but they do not allowed guest with slippers and short pants even I am wearing Bermuda pants was deny entry.

I visited the indoor theme park at First world bringing baby for a ride which is worth to bring your kids for the entertainment whereas Asian adults may be interested with the casino. Highland, Resort and Genting Grand are located at the same area whereas First world is on the other side where you need to walk down few escalators to reach First World.

Revisit Melaka Heritage Sites

We visit Melaka every year on the 2nd day of Chinese New Year and the routine did not change for this year. We drive at 4pm on 11th February and reached Melaka at 6pm with smooth traffic during the second day of CNY.

We stay at One Residence at Taman Pertam Jaya near Semabuk using the AMJ highway access which is quite convenience with transport. It is not so convenient for tourists that want to visit the heritage sites of Melaka. It is a double storey house which has 4 bedrooms suitable for big family.

We stay at Melaka for 3 days and 2 nights but we never really visit any attraction this time as we bring along an 8 months baby which is not convenient. I was targeting to visit the Baba Nyonya heritage museum or Cheng Ho Cultural Museum but we have no chance to pay a visit with busy CNY schedule. I will sure revisit and provide comments on this attraction.

The only comments on Melaka this round is I drove into Jonker Street and the jam along the Jalan Bendahara will never change. Everyone use to drive into the heritage sites using Jalan Bendahara and we have to find alternatives.
