Cool Retreat

I just love Fraser's Hill.. Standing at 1500 metres above sea level, it offers a cool retreat from the heat and humidity of the lowlands. The temperature can get as low as 18 degrees there! Brrrrrrrr!!

Well, Hubby and I got the chance to explore the highland last February and it was awesome! The area is free from the hustle and bustle of the city and is surrounded by lush greenery and hillsides rich with flora and fauna, all eagerly waiting to be discovered and explored.

The small town itself has plenty to offer, including fabulous views of the Titiwangsa Range, walking tracks, hiking trails, waterfalls, historic buildings, bungalows, a golf-course, a bird-watching station, nurseries, a man-made lake, shops and eateries, and a paddock where visitors can go horse-riding and archery. However, there's one major annoyance: the road leading up to the hill is perilous, winding and only carries one-way traffic (a one-way up and one-way down road system). Also, the accommodations there are pretty old and in need of a makeover. Apart from that, it seems to be a perfect place for retreats and getaways.

So if you ever need a break, do consider cool, breezy and quiet Fraser's Hill.. You'll never regret it! ;)
