BUKIT TINGGI (MALAYSIA) 2010
If you minus the stall ...it really looks like somewhere in France
The donkey ride ...not really sure if the kids enjoying it ....
The botanical garden , attracting the dslr people with huge lens ...really huge
The Japanese Garden ...the ladies in Kimono are Malaysian ....
The shuttle bus ....free of charge taking visitor to Japanese garden
This is our first visit to Bukit Tinggi, probably among the top 5 highland retreat site in Malaysia. I've a working assignment nearby so decided to take the whole family to experience some of the attractions.
Firstly, it was a not so easy journey driving to the peak since the road (was not bad) but very steep. I can feel my MPV screaming each time we hit the steep road. t took us an hour to reach the central attraction which is the Colmar Tropical which is actually a resort built according to 16th century French Castle.
From there we went to the Rabbit Farm and the Japanese garden, the good news for me is ...transportation is provided via shuttle bus (or it looks more like a shuttle truck...). The Japanese garden was really interesting because this garden is one of the first to be made according to the garden in Japan..outside of Japan, and the low temperature indeed provides the cooling effect to the surrounding.
Overall it was really good. The price especially for food was a bit expensive but the attraction provided for visitors was really worth it.
