BUKIT TINGGI (MALAYSIA) 2010

Bonjour .....!!!!

Enjoying the scenery ( 3 plus 1)

If you minus the stall ...it really looks like somewhere in France

The swan was really big ...at first I thought it was a robotic swan

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.

Hi Rizal,

How nice to have a touch of "France" so easily accessible from KL, and with a Japanese garden as well.

Malaysia is very well situated as a hub for travel. Within easy distance are so many different countries and cultures.

Rizal, I have been to this place many times and it is one place that the family can get 'lost' and enjoy the peace and tranquility of a tropical forest. At time I just drive up there with another couple for tea or lunch and back. A stay overnight is worth it.

Have a nice day.

salam pak idrus,

totally agree with you. The distance is about nice for a short trip and if the time is right the weather could be really nice.

The weather must be good up there these few days. Looks like everyone enjoyed themselves very much.

Looks like a great family vacation you had there! The buildings look so quaint, like something out of a movie set.
