The First World Hotel in Genting Highlands, Malaysia by Benson Kua flic.kr/p/6yCUGy

The First World Hotel is rated three-star and the price is most affordable. There are two towers with 6,118 rooms; the number is probably chosen to sound auspicious to the Chinese-speaking visitors. Be patient when you're staying here, as check-in and check-out queues are long. The rooms are basic and far not as luxurious as the casino hotel nearby.

Luxury-seekers should opt for Genting Grand Hotel, one of the Highlands' oldest hotels. A five-star joint, it features award-winning restaurant The Olive, among others.

Another hotel you should probably check out is the Resort Hotel because of it convenient location and easy access to the Resort World Genting's must-see attractions.
