It has been a tradition for Resorts World Genting to enjoy a buka puasa meal with the Orang Asli community during the holy month of Ramadan, and this year is no different.

On 11th June 2017, a team from the resort visited the Orang Asli community in Kampung Sg Bot recently to partake of the meal with the residents there. Led by Paul Baker, Deputy Chief Operating Officer of Resorts World Genting, and Katherine Chew, Vice President of Resort Communications & Public Relations, the team was welcomed by Tok Batin Abdul Karim, head of Kampung Orang Asli in Pahang.
