Parking in First World Hotel Genting Highlands

Planning a trip to Genting Highlands and not sure where to Park? This is a valid question for any smart traveler as Genting Highlands is a very popular destination with hundreds of visitors every day and organizing a trip to Genting needs a bit of planning. 

I frequently visit Genting Highlands and always prefer to park at the First World Hotel   due to the convenience of getting in and out of the venues. The parking at the First World  Hotel used to be a free couple of years ago. In recent years, a parking fee has been enforced which can be paid at the time of leaving the hotel. The automatic payment machines are located in the lobby opposite the lifts on the ground floor.

Here are some tips for parking your car at the Genting Highlands Car Park:

  • If you are visiting Genting Highlands for a day trip, I suggest you park at the First World Hotel. Once you reach the casinos, follow the signs to First World Hotel Parking. Genting is often very foggy and you will find it hard to navigate in thick fog. The parking entrance can be reached by turning left once reaching the Casino Building
  • Parking at Maxims or Awana can be challenging as there is a considerable walking distance to the First World Hotel lobby. 
  • The multi-story parking at Awana Resort is often very isolated at night time and difficult to exit.  
  • Make sure to photograph the floor level of the parking in First World or Awana Parking Complex. 
  • Remember to carry the parking ticket with you as the pay stations are often located at the entrance to the parking which can be far from where you parked the car. 
  • Do not park at No-Parking zones to avoid your car being towed away.

Another alternative to avoid parking at the First World Hotel is to park your car at the Awana SkyWay Cable Car Station and catch a Skyway to reach the lobby at the Awana Casino and Shopping Malls. Make sure to be back before the time the Skyway stops operating. Alternatively, you can catch a cab or GRAB to the parking station for Awana SkyWay.

Make sure to record your level and zone before leaving your car in the First World Hotel Parking

As most casinos are located side by side in Genting Highlands, the parking for Maxims and Resorts World is also available if the parking is full at First World Hotel. There is considerable walking distance between the casinos which are connected with several hallways and passages connected with lifts and escalators.

During my last visit in October 2022, I was interested in attending the Durian Festival at Awana Car Park and ended up Parking in the undercover car park at the Awana. I left the casino later in the night and found it very difficult to exit as the parking ticket machine was not working after fixing that issue I was not able to figure out the exit to the multi-story building.
