The Little England Of Malaysia

Fraser's Hill is perhaps the prettiest of all hill resorts in Malaysia. Nestling at 1524 meters above sea level on the majestic Titiwangsa Range, it is about one and a half hours drive from Kuala Lumpur. This charming little hideaway with population of about 1000 is not unlike a quiet Scottish village. Granite mock-Tudor cottages sit amidst the brilliantly-colored blooms of and English-style garden. Most of these bungalows are private residences but some have been converted into holiday bungalows for visitors. They enable visitor to enjoy a country-style holiday in a cool, refreshing ambience, where evenings bring along swirling ,mists to descend upon the little hamlet while cold winds breeze through the lofty pine trees.

Fraser's Hill takes its name after a Scottish adventurer, Louis James Fraser who set up a tin ore trading station in the forested mountains on the Pahang Selangor border. In later years, Bishop Ferguson-Davie mounted a search for Fraser but could not find him. Instead, the potential of hills as a cool getaway was discovered.
