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.
