Genting Highlands Shopping

Where to Shop and What to Buy in Genting Highlands

Genting Highlands is a mountain peak destination on the apex of the Banjaran Titiwangsa mountain range. This tourist-friendly hilltop city decked out Vegas-style is the perfect way to enjoy a weekend near Kuala Lumpur. Even though this charming hill station has an abundance of resorts and hotels and features the First World Hotel – which was listed as the world's largest hotel in 2006 by the Guinness World Book of Records – getting a room here during the weekends can be difficult as the resort is usually swarming with twice as many punters than rooms.

Each of the big hotels has retail outlets that sell souvenirs, candy and handicrafts but if you’re looking to do some serious retail therapy, Genting Highlands has a few stores that should occupy your time but shopaholics would be better off getting bargains in the Kuala Lumpur city centre.

Country's Tid-Bits & Candies Cottage

Located at the Genting Skyway Station at Gohtong Jaya, this store sells an assortment of titbits from preserved fruits, nuts, cookies, sweets, jelly beans, biscuits to crackers. The eye-catching multihued candies and local snacks are piled onto tables to resemble mini-mountains; prices are not exactly cheap but the wide range of sweets available will make sure you’re sweet tooth cravings will be satisfied.

Cultural Village

Selling merchandise that ranges from Asian handicrafts, souvenirs and gifts, the Cultural Village comprises 12 stalls representing different countries and their unique items.

This is probably the best store in Genting Highlands. Selling Nike sporting apparel and footwear, this store has some pretty good bargains and foot apparel are especially reasonably priced; the only downside is the fact that they’re not really the latest designs but really at these prices who’s complaining?
