Fraser’s Hill

Hill resort spread along 7 peaks at 1,200 - 1,500 meters above sea-level on the Titiwangsa mountain range, about 100km north of Kuala Lumpur. Originally it was set up as a tin mine in the 1890s by Louis James Fraser (hence the name) until the tin ran out in 1913. A few years later the area was rediscovered as British-colonial hill resort. The cooler temperatures made it popular getaway destination from the hot and humid weather for the British. To this day Fraser’s Hill still retains its colonial charm. The area is recognized destination for bird watching with over 250 species recorded. Other activities include jungle trekking, golf, horse riding, archery, boating and mountain biking.

F1 Malaysian Grand Prix

The tickets are pricy but are still considered cheap compared to the ticket prices for races in Europe. The grand stand at the start-finish straight is already sold-out but there are still tickets available for all other seats ranging from RM700 to RM1800. The cheapest way to experience the race or the weekend (all tickets are valid from friday to sunday) is get a hillstand ticket (RM80), but make sure you bring an umbrella to protect yourself from the sun or the very likely tropical rain.
