|Fraser Hill - Pahang
Fraser's Hill derives its name from one of the more colorful characters in colonial history, James Louis Fraser, an adventurer and fortune hunter.
Stories about his life include rumors of an opium and gambling den managed by him, which was frequented by miners. He vanished later on and his disappearance remains a mystery to this day.
The hill rises at 1,524 meters above sea level. Like the ancient city of Rome, it is built on 7 hills, but unlike the eternal city, it bears no claim to cosmopolitan fame. Instead, it exudes a quiet rustic air, more in keeping with the solitude of an English countryside.
Cool throughout the year at an average of 18 - 20 degree Celsius, the attraction of Fraser's Hill as a tourist resort has not diminished through the years. Today, Fraser's Hill is popular as a site for company retreats and weekends.
