Discover a stunning blend of cultures from France and Japan within the cold breeze of Bukit Tinggi!
Highland areas in Malaysia are usually well-known for their natural or agricultural purposes; like Cameron Highlands and its tea or fruits. However, Bukit Tinggi, located just 48 km away from Kuala Lumpur, brings a unique proposition for travellers looking to escape Malaysian culture for just a while. The concept of Bukit Tinggi is a major focus on bringing differing cultures from far-off lands into one place in Malaysia. Today, the Colmar Tropicale resort is one of the best replicas of a French town in Malaysia.
After just an hour's drive, the scenery will change from the usual Malaysian charm to that of the French countryside. Colmar Tropicale retains a 16th century, European-style architecture; decorated with cobblestone courtyards and lined with cafes and restaurants around the square. Entertaining street performances and live bands bring you an immersive, wholesome European experience that is fun for all ages
A little further up the hill lies the Zen-inspired Japanese Village. Similar to the French town, the Japanese culture and architecture are imported to Malaysia without ever having to step foot in the East. Within the village, there is an authentic Japanese tea house, restaurant, botanical garden, and spa. The cool mountain air will make you feel as if you have been whisked away to the real respective countries and the experience is second to none to take a break from the norm of Malaysian life.
