In he was a building contractor working on a hydro-electric project at Cameron Highlands — the cool, damp hill station much favoured by British planters and officials seeking refuge from the heat below — when he had the idea of developing a mountain resort closer to the capital, Kuala Lumpur.
He identified what he declared to be the ideal site, a peak called Ulu Kali which forms part of a densely forested ridge some 35 miles from the city. Lim ignored those who told him the project was a folly, investing every cent he had accumulated in other ventures to see it through.

Over the next 30 years Lim continued to develop Genting with more hotels, a theme park, a golf course and a convention centre. In a two-mile-long cable-car system was installed for easier access. His master company, Genting Berhad, expanded in many other directions, including cruise ships and oil and gas exploration; it also operates a chain of 46 Stanley Leisure casinos in Britain.

During the Japanese occupation Lim scraped by as a vegetable farmer and scrap metal dealer. In the post-war years he began making money dealing in second-hand machinery for tin mines and rubber plantations. In due course he ventured into the mining industry for himself and built up a substantial construction business.
