0 Colmar Tropicale @ Berjaya Hills

Colmar Tropicale is a French themed village located just 45 minutes out of Kuala Lumpur. The cobbled street and medieval style buildings give a rustic feel to the place. Cool dewy air, fresh flowers and green grass, the grace of swans, all add to the charm of this small man-made romantic wonder.

My fourth trip up (a lunch affair) and I'm still in love with the serenity it brings to my state of thoughts. The only thing that mars my dreamy escapade is the fun fair booths they've erected hither and yon, similar to those found in i-City. I'm all for tourism for kids but surely something that suits traditional culture would have been more appropriate. Something French or local, like a game of congkak, anyone?

Bah..fool that I am. Beautiful places like these don't last long. Signs of disorderly construction and development of white elephant buildings are already plaguing the pristine greenery that has long made Colmar a special place in my heart. The journey up shows proof, ample.

A magical world of charm
