Working Behind-The-Scenes

There is a great way now to understand and see how things are done in a hotel, entertainment and dining, through the Behind-The-Scenes tour at Resorts World Genting.  There is the See, Do & Eat Workshop, a visit to the biggest laundry in Malaysia at the First World Hotel, check out how we synchronize the sound and lighting systems at the Genting International Showroom for our shows and get to know the Resort’s history, current and upcoming offerings at the Horizon 50!

Let us take you step by step into this fantastic tour!
First stop, is the See, Do & Eat Workshop.  Like the theme has it, you will see how sushi and cupcakes are made and then get to make them yourself before eating them!  Isn’t that wonderful!!

There will be two commis chefs demonstrating the making of these two favorite dishes. All the items needed for you to prepare these items are available for you to do it yourself. 

If you don’t know what is Commis Chef, let us tell you more.  They are apprentice or junior chefs working with teams of chefs to produce our food.  At the See, Do & Eat Workshop, our commis chefs are our stars!

Next stop is the visit to the biggest laundry in Malaysia!!  We shall not say much as the saying goes ‘seeing is believing’.  But we will give you a hint.  

At the tour, you will be guided on how the linen namely bedsheets, towels, pillow cases and floor mats are transferred from the hotel rooms directly into this laundry.  Before you forget, First World Hotel has 6118 rooms and on a normal day, we have about 90% occupancy.  So we are pretty busy. 
During the tour you will learn that we have different sections where the linen are brought in and then moved to the sorting section.  This will be followed by washing and then drying.  After this, they will be sent for iron and then folding. All these are done by the machine with over 50 attendants assisting in the process.

Meanwhile, a visit to the Genting International Showroom will fascinate you.  Using creativity and with good experience in sound and lights technology, our team of audio engineers synchronize them to make any shows come alive!  They are the heroes behind the scene in ensuring the nightly performance keeps our audience excited.

Last but not least the tour takes all participants to the exclusive Horizon 50.
Horizon 50 is the latest edition at Resorts World Genting. Its venue, a journey through time  spans over 16,000 sq feet, showcasing a glimpse of the past and current as well as great emphasis of what’s to come at the Resort . 

The idea of Horizon 50 was conceptualized in line with Genting's Integrated Tourism Plan where the Resort wanted to have a one-stop venue to share its history, its amazing scale of current operations and its construction of the many new and future projects with its visitors.  The venue besides being informative also offers an ambience that creates a feel of modern futuristic atmosphere complemented by the surroundings of state-of-the-art technology, portraying the groups global expansion and interest in technology.

The structure and setup is by world renowned exhibition designers PICO, whilst the projection and video wall technology are powered and sponsored by Panasonic.  At Horizon 50, visitors can walk around and be amazed by high definition projectors, fly through videos, visual boards, video walls and LED Television screens that are divided into different sections that will take visitors from the humble beginnings of the resort into its 50 years of success and the many more years to come.  Horizon 50 also promises to keep evolving.  New information on the development of the Resort will be featured continuously to keep its visitors well informed.

So now that you know a little more about Behind-The-Scenes tour, do join us to explore in person when you next visit the resort! Visit http://goo.gl/RjEs30 for more info.

Have you ever tried tossing Yee Sang at a temperature of -6°C? Well, not many has!  This year,  at Snow World, guests were surprised with the giant Yee Sang tossing ceremony on the 2nd and 3rd day of Chinese New Year.
Upon entering the snow chamber, visitors were greeted by cherry blossoms and beautiful red lanterns.  25 large round plates of Yee Sang were freshly prepared, each ingredient signify prosperity.
At the tossing table were Tabby and Friends together with the SnowWorld visitors.  Each with a pair of chopsticks ready to tossed the salad up in the air. The higher the salad is tossed into the air, the higher chance that the wishes be granted!

To usher in the Year of the Goat, Tabby and Friends were nicely decked in traditional Chinese
costumes.  They were seen busy distributing fortune cookies to guests.  Guests too were busy with the DIY workshop to learn sheep mask making and then wrote out their wishes on the cards and then, hanging them on a Wishing Tent.
