Hidden up in Berjaya Hills is the French themed resort “Colmar Tropicale”
Why a replica of this quaint little town was built in such a place is still a question I ask myself but, having lived in the real Colmar in the East of France, I can say that the architecture is so extremely spot on, it’s frightening! More than that, it makes a great little day trip from KL.
Walk cobbled streets through colourful houses, climb the tower to get great views over the region, and see the swans that swim around the moat before you grab a drink or lunch on one of the many terraces.
There are a number of cafes and restaurants although I would love to see more specialities from the region to make it even more authentic!
You pay a small entrance fee to enter the grounds (unless you’re staying overnight at their hotel) and after that there is an array of free (and payable) activities to try out! I’ll bring you another post on some of those next time 😉 But if you fancy a change of scenery from the city skyscrapers, a little trip here makes an original choice and is less than an hour away from Kuala Lumpur!
