Berjaya Hills Bukit Tinggi

Ayoyo, only 2 entry post in June, how come this kind of thing happen. Almost 1 month I didn't blog anything. Macam mana nak jadi blogger tersohor gini punya cara. Just forget about it, this time I will take you out from the city. Jom pi Berjaya Hills. Located at Bukit Tinggi Bentong Pahang, Bukit Tinggi is just over an hour's drive from Kuala Lumpur City centre. Berjaya Hills Resort owned by Tan Sri Vincent Tan and it was divided into two main attractions. Japanese Village and Colmar Tropicale, a french theme resort. Just RM 16 for adults and RM 8 for children below twelve to enter the resort.

The Japanese Village is located at 3,500 feet above sea level. The first of its kind outside Japan. It encompasses a Japanese Tea House, Sakura and Ume Tatami Suites, and a Botanical Garden. An hour long authentic Japanese Tea Ceremony conducted by Kimono clad ladies can be observed at the Japanese Tea House located within a Japanese garden with mini waterfalls and a pond of multi-coloured Koi.
A one kilometre walk path built on four acres of virgin forest lies the Botanical Garden. Here amidst lush greenery, one can appreciate the sight of multi coloured and multi shaped floral and fauna, hear the call of birds and monkeys, insects buzzing and the fragrance of the growing forest. Signs with names and information snippets of trees, plants and flowers were put up for visitors.

The theme hotel is made up of eight blocks of architectural wonder, each with its unique style, from its colourful roof tiles to cobblestone ground. The hotel has several outlets, where you can dine in the French way. Central to the village is Colmar Square where the aroma of the blooms will tantalise your senses. There are fountains and park benches in the square for relaxation after a hard day's work browsing in the 17 theme shops, or should one wish to take a breather from participating in the various activities. The drawbridge reminiscent of ancient castles, clock tower with an original cuckoo bird clock, and the viewing tower complements the ambience.
Live bands and snake performances entertain the visitors on a stage. A clown juggles balls and pins, rides on his cycle, hops around playing tricks and acting merry. Authentic French food is served from sidewalk cafes and restaurants. The tables are placed strategically around the square so you can enjoy a meal or glass of wine whilst taking in the ambience.
