Colmar Tropicale

It was the first day of Hari Raya and it being a public holiday, we decided to take a short drive out of town to visit Colmar Tropicale. It is located about 45 mins from the city and the roads were totally clear of traffic and was such a breeze to drive. Take the Bukit Tinggi exit from the highway (after Genting exit) and turning in, will lead you to a long winding road before you reach the top of a hill where this "french village" is located.









The last time I went there with hubby was before we got married and now several years later, sad to say, not much improvement has been made to this place to make it much more attractive.










This place has got a golf course too, so you will see large numbers of cars here on weekends as it is located on a slight highland with some cooling fresh air when the wind blows. There is also a Japanese Tea Garden (good for senior citizens) as well as a Rabbit & Deer Farm for the little ones. Worth a half day visit.

I've only been to the golf course and seen it from the golf course. Hahaha. So, for 10 bucks per head, what can we do there?

I thot it cost more. I was there during our 'pak toying' time. But is a gd drive somewhere near and different from the city.

Dear Lian, there is really nothing to do other than to talk a (very short) stroll and if the weather is cooling, enjoy a cuppa (need to pay more!) and relax.

My intention was to take little one to the rabbit farm and poor rabbits, must have been tortured by him! And need to pay RM3 more per head ... everything is $$$!
