  • A Day-Trip to Malaysia's Bukit Tinggi

    Amidst the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic when we are not encouraged to travel out of the country for very long, a lot of us might consider taking a day-trip to shake away the boredom of staying at home or just going around the town. Located just an-hour-drive away from Kuala Lumpur or Genting Highlands, Berjaya Hills at Bukit Tinggi, Malaysia might be just the perfect travel destination for you and your family. Berjaya Hills has lots of breathtaking scenery and is suitable for those who are looking for inner peace while engaging with nature. Berjaya Hills is located 2,700 feet above sea level (you might want to bring your jacket along as the temperature can get pretty cold and windy, especially at night) and offers grand, European-style architecture, lush tropical forests, and majestic wildlife, all in the area of Colmar Tropicale Berjaya Hills Resort, managed by Berjaya Hotels & Resorts. This particular resort in Malaysia has 235 rooms & suites, 8 food & beverage lounges with food variety ranging from local & international cuisine to an authentic French fine dining restaurant, as well as interesting tourist attractions. During your day-trip, here are the attractions within Berjaya Hills which you might be interested in paying a visit:   Colmar Tropicale Image Credit: Kat Yeoh on Unsplash Opened in 2000, Colmar Tropicale was modeled after a 16th-century small town of Colmar, northeastern of Alsace, France. The resort also incorporates architectural designs and elements from ancient surrounding villages of Riquewihr, Turckheim, and Kaysersberg. This inspiration of a so-called “French village in Malaysia” was derived from the wish list of Malaysia's fourth Prime Minister, Tun Dr. Mahathir bin Mohamad, who upon his visit to the region of Alsace was so impressed by the architecture that he decided that there should be one in Malaysia. The entrance fee is only RM12 for adults and RM8 for children aged between 4 and 12 (inclusive to the entrance fee of Japanese Village). The architecture and design are so nice that you can take some pictures of yourself and your family and friends at their instagrammable spots. You’ll feel like you are in France. PS: the place is also beautiful and instagrammable at night. Among the restaurants in the area, the most famous one is La Cigogne Restaurant serving halal French cuisine.   Japanese Village Image Credit: Conny Sandland, Some rights reserved  Here you can immerse yourself in the tranquil and serene ambiance of this Japanese Village.
