Having a hearty meal, the children were then treated to a fun-filled magic and balloon show. After that thrilling performance, the children were encouraged to come on stage to perform their favorite number for the Christmas season, the cloud wonderland instantly turned into a disco destination. And, of course, Christmas is never complete without presents. Katherine Chew, Vice President of Resort Communication & Public Relations of Resorts World Genting was invited on stage to distribute the gift to each child who personally chose their own gifts from a Wishlist provided by employees of Resort World Genting. Ranging from remote controlled cars, building blocks and make-up sets to sports shoes, scooters and bicycles, each present brought the biggest smile of each child.

After a group photography session, it was then time for the children to wander and witness the amazing Christmas entertainment available at Resort World Genting – they headed down to SkyAtrium to witness the beautiful Nutcracker wonderland. The group then headed outdoors into the cool mountain air to see the bright lights and beautiful sounds of the Genting Winter Wonderland at Metro Park. The children got to experience an authentic European Christmas market and see the towering crystalline Christmas tree. The group trooped around as they got in line to move to their next destination.

At Snow World, the children donned jackets and gloves to frolic in the snow. Making snowballs, sliding down with tubes and hiding in the igloos. The children covered the entire place and explored the 3D art installation and posed for pictures. It was an experience that they will never forget and treasure as they bade goodbye to their Resorts World Genting hosts with a final round of smiles, cheers and hugs.
