Welcome to Hill Resorts

Hill Resorts

Located along the main mountain range of Peninsula Malaysia are several resorts perched in the hills that offer a respite from the heat and humidity and a refreshing break from city life. Popular with tourists and locals alike, the hill resorts each have their own revitalizing charm and offer a range of activities, accommodation and attractions.

The Cameron Highlands is the largest and most refined of the hill resorts. Its cool climate is favourable for crops and it is known as Malaysia's 'Green Bowl', supplying the country with a variety of fruit and vegetables. The most developed resort is Genting Highlands, a popular respite from Kuala Lumpur over weekends, and packed with entertainment options. In contrast, Fraser's Hill offers the peace and tranquillity of its natural surroundings and is the region's smallest resort, while Bukit Larut is the least visited and therefore the least developed. It preserves more of the ambience of a traditional colonial hill station, with its modest accommodation and quiet atmosphere.
