Kuala Lumpur has an incredible casino area, owned by the magnificent Resorts World group: the Genting Highlands.It is the only legal land-based casino in Malaysia. Tourists looking for hotels with casinos in Kuala Lumpur will adore this mountain-top entertainment zone, only an hour’s drive north-east of the city. The Genting Highlands straddles the border of Pahang and Selangor and is well connected to Kuala Lumpur by the Karak Highway and other major roads. After reaching the base of the mountain, guests ride in a cable car to reach the spectacular entertainment at the top.
