Berjaya Hills, Bukit Tinggi

An hour’s ride from Kuala Lumpur in Malaysia is Berjaya Hills, Bukit Tinggi in Pahang rising some 2,500 feet above sea level. It’s the closest one, who has never been to France, can get to experience a little bit of the lifestyle of the French people.

Colmar Tropicale, located in Bukit Tinggi, Pahang, is a replica of a collection of buildings from a north-eastern village in France dating back to the 16th Century. The French themed resort was opened in July 2000. It’s surrounded by tropical forest land.

The theme hotel is made up of eight blocks of architectural wonder, each with its unique style, from its colourful roof tiles to cobblestone ground. The hotel has several outlets, where you can dine in the French way. Central to the village is Colmar Square where the aroma of the blooms will tantalise your senses. There are fountains and park benches in the square for relaxation after a hard day’s work browsing in the 17 theme shops, or should one wish to take a breather from participating in the various activities. The drawbridge reminiscent of ancient castles, clock tower with an original cuckoo bird clock, and the viewing tower complements the ambience.

That’s according to Wikipedia 🙂 I had to Google because when I was there, there was no chance to talk to someone and ask how it came to be without disturbing the need for me to take photos everywhere I turn.

The place is so wonderful!

The Chateau Spa & Wellness Hotel

I’ve got a few cutesies to tickle your palates 🙂 I had them with some friends when we visited the posh The Chateau Spa & Wellness Hotel located on Berjaya Hills, Bukit Tinggi, Pahang, Malaysia.

The place is awesome — the closest you’ll get to France (if you haven’t been there).
