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.

Kenanga Wholesale City (official website)


Even though Kenanga is a wholesale shopping mall, most shops also sell retail. Some shops are however wholesale only from Monday to Friday. So it is best to come here on the weekend. Overall you can find some of the cheapest prices for things like handbags, women's fashion, accessories and shoes in KL. Since it is a wholesale mall, the more items you buy, the better the price. Almost all shops cater to products for women.
