Behind the Scene Tour, Resort World Genting

Genting Highlands is well known for being a glamorous, magical city of entertainment, with the lively casinos and the indoor themepark, but did you know that they also provide educational tours? Yes, they do. It’s an interactive tour both adults and children can join to get an insight on how things are run behind the scene in Genting. During the tour, you will be given a glimpse of First World Hotel laundry operation, how lights and music are managed during shows and concerts in Genting International showroom and hands on sushi making and pastry decorating workshop.

My family and I joined the tour last two weeks and here’s sharing with you what we experienced :

First stop, First World Hotel Laundry

First World laundry. Cleaning dirty linens. No. First World Hotel does not keep elves who helped them to do the laundry nor do they have fairy godmothers who clean up everything with just a wave of a wand. There was no magic involved. Just systematic system, high-tech machines and pure hardwork to keep things clean.

We were shown an A-Z process of laundry in First World Hotel, from collection of dirty linens to washing, drying up, pressing and distributing it back to hotel rooms for your usage. Everything was done using giant machines and the divisions looks more like a mini factory rather than a laundry room.

How laundries are transported in bulk without problems.

All ready to be delivered. Both wet and dry cleaning service is available upon request for those who are staying in First World Hotel.

You not only can learn how hotels manages their laundry but teaches you how to appreciate the unsung heroes who made your stay in hotels comfortable too.

Next on our iterinery was the ‘See, Do & Eat Interactive Workshop’, where we were given an opportunity to have a hands on bento making and doughnut decorating session. I opt for bento making where we made our very own bento lunch.

My Bento. Not too shabby for a first timer, no? Naturally, being a foodie and quite a glutton, the ‘See, Do&Eat Interactive Workshop‘ is my favourite part of the tour.

Our last stop: Genting International Showroom.

This behind the scene tour is pretty much insightful and I learned that behind every successful show or concert in Genting, there is a whole crew behind of it to make it successful and yes…credits should be given to the backstage crews too. Bravo and kudos for making world class entertainment possible.
