The Pull Factors of Gohtong Jaya Gohtong Jaya is the gateway to the summit by cable car via Awana Skyway. Around the area, several tourist attractions lie in the immediate surroundings including Happy Bee Farm, Strawberry Farm, Genting Premium Outlets (“GPO”), Chin Swee Temple and Gohtong Memorial Park.
The 10-year Genting Integrated Tourism Plan (“GITP”), enacted in 2013 was aimed to revitalise and transform Genting Highlands into a world-class tourism destination. One of the transformation plans is to shift the population and amenities from peak to midhill by creating more offerings such as recreation (Awana Golf & Country Resort), retail & shopping (Genting Premium Outlets), and transportation hub (bus and cable car terminals).
With many developments mushrooming around the Gohtong Jaya area, the market is becoming very exciting and secondary transactions are slowly gaining momentum with more new projects coming on stream. The high-rise residential developments are catching up with Kuala Lumpur’s prices as well. On the commercial front, Gohtong Jaya also recorded the highest rental rates.
