Hill Resorts Travel Guide

Perched on rich green expanses amid fresh mountain air and breathtaking tropical jungles, Malaysia's charming hill resorts offer respite from the country's famous heat and humidity. Each of them has a range of activities, attractions and accommodation, meaning visitors can look forward to refreshing experiences above the clouds.

The Cameron Highlands is the largest and most refined of the hill resorts, and its cool climate is favourable for crops. Indeed, it's known as Malaysia's 'Green Bowl', supplying the country with a variety of fruit and vegetables. Genting Highlands is the most developed resort, and is a popular weekend getaway for Kuala Lumpur residents. By contrast, the natural surroundings of the smallest resort, Fraser's Hill, provide peace and tranquility. Bukit Larut is the least visited and the least developed, preserving the ambience of a traditional colonial hill station with its quiet atmosphere and modest accommodation.
