We have our lunch at the Garden View Restaurant. When I went to the toilet, there are sign guide you to the organic farm own by the restaurant, so I have a walk. It is a true farm but I am in doubt that the farming is enough for self supply. May be they have another bigger farm at nearby places.
At one of the shuttle bus stop where you can go to the Japanese Garden. There is a small hut which certainly attract eye sight. A Buddha hand with a lotus for the Buddhist to visit and to pray for peace and good luck.
At 3500 ft above sea level, BHGCC built its Japanese Village. In the village, there are the Japanese Tea House situated in the middle of a tropical jungle, the Japanese Garden and the Japanese Restaurant, Ryo Zan Tei is in the compound too. To those who have free time for a spa, after the walk in the Botanical Garden, you may have your tea and spa, in the Tatami Spa located at the left to the souvenir shop.
I noticed many government and private offices organising their corporate activities such as training and seminars at Berjaya Hills, either at the Colmar Tropicale or the BHGCC. The facilities and the location would make the event successful as all participants have escape from their daily work to participate in the programme.
It is only a small park with a small children play ground.
Unless you really have extra time or your children want to take a photo with animal, otherwise to stop here is not a good idea as the park is charging RM3 per person.
When I travelled to Bukit Tinggi, I drove to Berjaya Hills Golf and Country Club. It is a good place for golfers who like to play golf in highlands to enjoy cooler climate. The club has other type of facilities for the members and for the house guests who stay overnight in the chalet managed by BHGCC.
I had my first horse riding experience right here at Bukit Tinggi! So be sure not to miss this place when you get here. I took a lead ride at RM20 for a 15 minutes ride. However, as at that time, there isn't any other visitor there except me and my hubby, we get to enjoy a horse ride for almost half an hour instead at no extra cost. The trainers were very patient people and even taught us the proper way to direct the horse. We had a chance to try to ride the horse slowly on our own along the road.
A great place for the kids but these rabbits are not so easy to catch. There are many different breeds of rabbits here. You have to stay here for at least an hour as the shuttle comes on an hourly basis and for some, it may turn out to be boring unless you are a real rabbit lover.
Colmar Tropicale is inspired by the original Colmar Village in Alsace, France.
It is a picture postcard come alive!
The heart of Colmar Tropicale is the Colmar Square which is a cobblestone central courtyard where you can enjoy outdoor dining and street performances.
The Italian Restaurant serves very good pizzas and spagetties.
Colmar Tropicale Square is the centre of Colmar Tropicale.
Shops and restaurants are all located within the square.
The buildings are very "Frenchy". So I now live in this French Castle and waiting for my Prince Charming to pick me up.
The streets of Colmar Tropicale Square.
The blocks are named Azalea, Brunfelsia, Camelia, Dahlia, Euphorbia, Fuschia, Gazania and Heliconia.
I stayed in Euphorbia which is right at the end and beside the viewing tower.
From the Colmar Tropicale Viewing Tower, you can see the street from one end to the other end.
Dont worry if you cannot climb the steps.
With modern technology, there is a lift to bring u up and down.
Just a quick day trip to the cool and refreshing climate of the highlands at 2500-3500 feet.
You can visit "Colmar Tropicale" a replica of the old town of Colmar in France, near the german boarder. Have lunch at one of the restaurants and than go to the "Japanese Village" and "Botanical Garden" to take a walk through the forrest.
Entrance RM 8 p.P., parking free
This is a unique and charming French-themed attraction, inspired by the famous 16th century Colmar Village in Alsace, France. It was cold and raining when were here, so if you plan to come here on a rainy season, try to bring your jacket to keep you warm enough.
