My Little Asian French City

Sometime the air flight may be too high for you to go to France so what my friends and I opted was to bring France to ourselves in Malaysia. This was almost 8 years ago in 2008 when I was living in Malaysia. Colmar Tropicale is s a French-themed village and hotel located in Berjaya Hills Resort, Bukit Tinggi, Pahang, Malaysia. It is located 2,600 feet (790 m) above sea level on 80 acres (320,000 m2) of natural forestland. It is less than 1 hour drive from Kuala Lumpur. It resembles the actual 16th Century Village in Alsace named Colmar in France.190445_10150432051010456_2696234_n 199373_10150432050750456_5734563_n

The cooling and refreshing weather makes this small hill town one of the popular attraction to visit in Malaysia. We stayed at a hotel in Bukit Tingi giving us great convenience to this haven.199042_10150432059505456_5910745_n 190103_10150432059705456_3896330_n

While exploring Colmar Tropicale the feel is that of Europe, the beautiful architecture, cafes and design takes you miles way and is AMAZING!!!! The building and structures remind me about the fairy tale story which also having tall-building, clock and castle-like building~~~ It’s was a great experience to visit… DSC_0833

The entrance was fronted by a wooden drawbridge and a clock tower that is designed after the Riquewihr Tower in Alsace. I understand that the clock tower is also fitted with a cuckoo bird that chimes and comes out every 15 minutes and on the hour. However, it was a pity that that I did not personally get to experience that.DSC_0032

We spend about half a day there exploring, eating and just feeling like the French. I finally made my wish as i dropped my coin in the wishing well and proceeded to the Japanese garden. Unfortunately I do not seem to find my pictures for that part of the day. Ooops 🙁

Later that day while back in the hotel we had a some sort of party and for the life of me I can’t remember what it was about. This is why I am now writing my online journal whenever I do anything so there will be no chances of forgetting.

Writing this post brings back such great memories of my University life where I made the best of friends and the beginning to my love for travel.

Cheers,
