One day at Colmar Tropicale


Special place to celebrating someone special day. Yeah, it's my mom birthday. So, I and my brother decided to make a surprise trip to Malaysia, as a birthday present for her. And we gonna celebrate this day at Colmar Tropicale- a French theme village and resort located at Berjaya Hills that is almost one hour away from Kuala Lumpur. 

The development is inspired by the original town of Colmar in Alsace, France with elements taken from ancient surrounding villages like Riquewihr, Turckheim, and Kayserberg as well.

We have so little time, we rushed to shuttle point at Berjaya Times Square at lunch time. Luckily, there were still seat for us at 1.00pm. So, we bought that tickets, for departure at 1pm and back to KL at 6.30pm. I think we're lucky go on weekday, only us and 2 other guest.

I didn't expect much, just wanna explore another place in Malaysia. I never been there before, and I think Colmar is a good place to refreshing, and enjoy the chill weather. After one hour left, finally we arrived at Berjaya Hills. 

This French- themed resort settled at 2,700 feet above sea level amidst 80 acres of rainforest. It's pretty place with fresh air and great weather also. Grab your camera, and let's explore. I love to taking pictures at every corner. For more breathtaking view, you should climb up to the tower, see the panoramic hills view. 

Like I said before, we go to Colmar to celebrating my mom birthday. So, we go to the French bakery to bought some cake :) 

Happy birthday my dearest, hope you have a wonderful day filled with much love, happy with our surprises and gives you lasting memories that you will cherish in all the days ahead, xoxo.

Another place inside Berjaya Hills that I think it's a must for you to visit is Japanese Garden. You can get there by a free shuttle that runs around Berjaya Hills resort. Japanese garden is quiet and peaceful, with its pond with koi fish and little stream, so relaxing!
