First World Hotel Genting Level 13No stranger to the locals, Genting Highlands is said to be one of the most haunted places in Malaysia, and with 6,118 rooms it must be difficult to keep track of visitors from the “other side.” Recorded as the fourth largest hotel in the world, the hotel actually houses an outdoor and indoor theme park, shopping center, food plaza and even a tropical rainforest at the main entrance.It also houses Asia’s best international casino resort, and people say there have been numerous gambling-related suicides take place over the years. First World Hotel is known for its paranormal activities – guests who have stayed there would hear wailing spirits in the middle of the night, some have even seen ghostly apparitions jumping over the cliff only to vanish into thin air – the most famous account is a headless woman roaming around the corridor, apparently looking for her missing head.

Certain rooms are not available for rent no matter how full the hotel was – those who have seen the inside reported that it was filled with old Chinese ghost wards. They would subsequently fall sick for days afterwards. Apparently this resort is on top of the list for being the most haunted in Malaysia.

Room 102 I saw a reflection of someone dashing through the room in the mirror, just outside the bathroom in the hallway above the dresser drawers. While drying my hair with a towel, dripping wet and naked, I stepped out of the bathroom into the bedroom to have a look. A Malaysian man with a black turban and black silk clothes materialized and stood facing me about three feet away. He opened his mouth and moved it as if he was speaking to me, but he was silent. He had deep eye sockets; void and darkness replaced his eyes, and his face was dry, brown, and crinkled. The ghost then reached for me, extending both arms, and hovered toward me at about one inch per second.
