Malaysia Resorts

The Main Range of Peninsular Malaysia is high in altitude hence the cool temperature makes it a popular highlands resort for local and overseas tourists. The state of Pahang has 4 of the major hill resorts in the country namely Cameron Highlands, Genting Highlands, Fraser's Hill and Berjaya Hills (formerly known as Bukit Tinggi). The state of Perak has a hill resort called Bukit Larut in Taiping.

    Cameron Highlands - a popular tourists destination where its people are involved in agriculture and tourism industry. Of particular interest is the BOH tea plantation at Sungai Palas where you will be able to see how the tea leaves are processed.

    Genting Highlands - at 1,800 m above sea level is the most developed hill resorts in Malaysia with theme parks, convention halls, cable car facilities and wide roads for one to easily access the highland.

    Fraser's Hill - Fraser's Hill is an ideal place for those who are into bird-watching, jungle trekking, camping, fishing and horse riding. You will find little development at this hill resort.

    Bukit Tinggi Resort - Planning for a family outing in Malaysia? This resort has been renamed to Berjaya Hills Resort. See the replica of Colmar Village in France, Japanese Village, Botanical Gardens, golfing, rabbit park, donkey rides, archery and spa at a cool altitude of up to 1,000 metres.

Bukit Larut or Maxwell Hill - Maxwell Hill or Bukit Larut is located in Taiping with an altitude of 1,250 metres. It is the wettest area in Malaysia with temperature range of 10 °C to 25 °C.

These hill resorts are popular with the locals during the long holidays. The cool climate and fresher air at the mountains help to rejuvenate the peoples especially the city folks. In terms of popularity, Genting Highlands and Cameron Highlands are higher compared to Bukit Larut, Frasers Hill or Berjaya Hills. The reason being that they are more developed with better hotels and facilities. 

However, if you do not mind staying in moderate hotels and rest houses, Frasers Hill and Bukit Larut are good choices too as they are less developed. Chances are you will be able to see more flora and fauna here.
