Fraser's Hill is akin to a little Scottish village with granite-coloured mock Tudor buildings dotting the landscape. The town is relatively small, with much of the activity centred on a market square dominated by a little clock tower. Most of the town's amenities are housed in colonial-styled buildings.
Considered one of Malaysia's premier locations for bird-watching, this hill resort hosts the annual Fraser's Hill International Bird Race. You can also indulge in a game of golf at the Fraser's Hill Golf Club or go fishing (catch and release only) and boating at Allans' Water, stroll along the many beautiful flower gardens and parks or have a splash in the icy cold Jeriau Waterfalls.
